State Senator unaware of vaccine safety issues

Citizens even circulated, and presented to Council, two different types of petitions against the […]

Commends council

Dear Editor, I am writing to commend the three Village Council members who took a stand for progress and voted yes on the Village Council Marijuana Ordinance.
