Tie means issue failed: Eckstein
WILLARD — A tie vote on the question of annexing about 64 acres in the city of Willard means that the annexation was defeated, WIllard’s city solicitor said today.
Franklin Eckstein said in order for the annexation decision to stand, it required a majority vote, according to the Ohio Revised Code.
Voters split down the middle 560-560 about whether the property along U.S. 224 owned by MHD Corp., including Briarwood Estates Mobile Home Park, should be taken into the city.
The vote was a referendum brought about through petitions circulated by Willard residents opposed to the annexation. Willard City Council decided in April to annex the property.

The hole (No. 5 on the back nine) measures 135 yards and is a par 3.
Bauer’s playing partners were Don Halter, Bob White and Max Robertson.

Pugh, Miller, get more accolades on gridiron
Dan Pugh of Norwalk and Dick Miller of Monroeville have been receiving high praise from their college football coaches all season.
Pugh, a junior middle guard for Mount Union College, has been named “Hatchetman of the Week” at the school four times. The most recent honor came last week and he earned the honor by making 24 tackles against Wittenberg.
Miller, an all-American linebacker last year at Ashland College as a junior, has been shifted around this year. He started at linebacker, but then was moved to defensive tackle and then to defensive end to fill spots vacated by injuries.
After leading Ashland in tackles as a sophomore (130), and junior (144), Miller is tied for second this year with 70.
