Orchids and onions
• ORCHID: To Brookfield and Liberty boards of education for agreeing to share services as an attempt to cut spending. The school districts will share a bus mechanic. The co-op will cut costs by tens of thousands of dollars for each district.
• ORCHID: To nonprofit group Rock4Reason for donating 50 stress-relief bags to the Hope Center for Cancer Care this week. The Rock4Reason team delivered the bags with candles, tea, socks, stress balls and lotion, among other items, to the Hope Center in Howland. While patients always must be careful not to get sick, COVID-19 has many cancer patients more worried than usual.
• ONION: To Gov. Mike DeWine for overlooking the fact that Ohioans can now get a tattoo but cannot get a driver’s license or license plates. It seems reasonable if restaurants can start serving again, the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles could have been serving the public again.
• ORCHID: To the local Pizza Hut franchise, HallRich Inc., for donating hundreds of pizzas this week to Warren City Schools, saying they simply wanted to help “feed these students.”
• ORCHID: To everyone who has tried to make graduation and the final days of the school year special for the Class of 2020.
