Orchids and onions

– ORCHID: To the Vienna Historical Society and its president, Christine Novicky, for completing the tedious project of recording data about all cemetery markers at several Vienna Township cemeteries and making the information available on www.findagrave.com. The information now can be used to assist anyone compiling genealogy records.

– ORCHID: To Warren police officers for their quick response on a call from children about their parents overdosing last week. Police arrived before EMT crews and successfully were able to revive the woman using an opioid-reversal drug. Responding officers also began CPR on the man until the ambulance arrived. Ultimately, the man died, but not for lack of effort by Warren police officers.

– ONION: To Justin Schubert of Warren, who was sentenced to prison this week for lying when he gave conflicting stories to investigators and in court testimony, further complicating a drug trafficking case. “I believe the only thing he was truthful about was giving his name,” Trumbull Common Pleas Judge Peter Kontos said.

– ORCHID: To Lordstown Motors Corp. for continuing to seek innovative ways to market its new electric pickup truck, the Endurance. The company this week announced it is partnering with a global automotive services firm, New Jersey-based Holman Enterprises, to introduce the truck to fleet operators nationwide. This partnership and all marketing efforts will help grow the company and also will help grow the local economy by keeping people employed at the plant. We all must hope for success of the Endurance and LMC.

– ORCHID: To the Niles Board of Education for working aggressively to try to save funds by offering retirement incentives for members of the two school district labor unions. To help trigger some attrition savings, the board of education is offering one-time lump sum payments ranging from $2,000 to $8,000.
