The statistic I’m interested in would be of those new library patrons how many of them were people living outside the city of Worthington.

I fail to see the reasoning behind “NOT” wanting rural signage? If I lived on a farm I would definitely want my house number out front by the road so a deputy sheriff or rescue people, could see it and know that’s where they are supposed to go, instead of them having to stop and read a map or consult a GPS unit. Every second could count in an emergency situation. I drive the backroads on occassion and see very few mailboxes with the house numbers, etc. on them. I personally think that it’s a common sense idea that could quite possibly save those few precious seconds or minutes, should you need help.

The library folks came up with statistics to show that a new library is needed in Worthington. How many of the 1632 people coming into the libary in one week were the same people coming in multiple times during the week? What is the total number of library cards that have been issued and how many of the cards are held by people who don’t live in Worthington? A past article in the Globe said that 77% of the library cards are held by people who live in the city of Worthington but didn’t give actual numbers of cardholders. Is building a new library in Worthington really a higher priority for county residents than replacing the many substandard bridges located throughout the county? If any one else feels that county roads and bridges come first before building a new library let your county commissioner know that. That’s the only way our elected officials can know the wishes of their constituents.
