Wellsville Mayor Joe Surace has challenged all clubs, churches, organizations and residents to be part of a Village wide clean-up campaign. Surace said this is his “last hurrah”. In years past there has always been part-time employees furnished by the County to work on cleaning up around town. That well has run dry with the economy being as it is. Wellsville did not get any extra help this summer and that is where the Mayor's challenge comes into play. We'll have more details after his meeting tomorrow. Give him a call with any questions.

From what we gather Monday evening's prayer service at the Immaculate Conception Church is open to the public no matter what denomination. One paper had a paragraph to that effect. The other local paper edited that paragraph out. Must have been a space thing but, at any rate, if you support keeping a Catholic place of worship presence in Wellsville you're invited to show your support Monday evening.

Tuesday evening's Property Committee meeting will have a representative of ALOV – Associated Landowners of Ohio Valley – explain how they go about dealing with such companies as Chesapeake in signing leases for drilling for natural gas & oil in the Marcellus & Utica shale regions. ALOV is a nonprofit organization. Village officials are considering leasing the drilling rights on the old dump and reservoir properties and are looking for the best deal.

Have a good week everyone...

CORRECTION IS IN ORDER: The prayer service was NOT on behalf of the Committee to Save IMC. It was announced at the July 5th SOI meeting that a prayer service would be taking place the first Saturday no mass is given at IMC. This prayer service was to take place in front of the Blessed Mother Shrine on Main Street. This public announcement prompted one individual to plan an imprompt prayer service.

when "ONE individual" begins making plans on his/her own, that'll be the end of your cohesiveness as a group. Sad, but true.
