While volunteering at the Conneaut Valley Area Historical Society (CVAHS) in Conneautville, Clark found this certificate with Mr. Ingols’ name on it recognizing him as a, “Honorary Life Member of the Air Defense team for voluntary and faithful service in the Ground Observer Corps.” Men and women were trained to observe from tall buildings in every community to spot and identify enemy airplanes and to notify the county who notified the state who notified the Department of the Air force. the CVAHS presented these certificates to many people in the Conneaut Valley Area but Mr. Ingols’ certificate had not been presented to him. Later Civil Defense became Emergency Management during President Carter’s time in office. “It’s important to recognize and appreciate what hundreds of men and women did in the past and continue to do today to keep their community’s safe,” said Crawford County EMA Director Allen Clark.

Despite over two dozen people in attendance and a 4 page petition opposing increasing real estate millage by 3 mills, Linesville Borough Council, on a 6-1 vote, determined to raise real estate taxes 3 mills in the 2015 budget - all to be used to pay for the tear down of the Pachuk Building on the borough’s main street.

The 3 mills amounts to about a 25% increase and comes on the heels of a 2.2 mill increase for the 2013 budget - a 5.2 mill increase in three years, that a 50% increase from the 10 mills in 2012.

The vote to increase the 3 mills of taxes came after 2-1/2 hours of debate from those in attendance and council with Rodney Kovisto making the motion for the increase, seconded by Holly Miller and passed 6-1 with Kovisto, Miller, Kevin McGrath, Laura Deal, Mike Heaney, and Tom Deighton voting yes and Randy Uplinger voting no.

The 3 mill increase is expected to bring in about $30,000 a year as one mill is said to bring in about $10,000.
