Should big box stores open on Thanksgiving?

  • Sure. Bring on the holiday shopping!
  • Definitely not. Workers deserve a day off, too.
  • I don't care either way.

Five candidates enter Ottawa City Commission race

By The Herald Staff

Helen Hood and Mike Skidmore added their names to the roster of candidates to fill three open positions on the Ottawa City Commission this spring.

The pair, who filed Tuesday before the noon deadline, joined incumbents Linda Reed and Jeff Richards and former city commissioner Rocky Fleer in the race. Longtime commissioner and five-time mayor Gene Ramsey did not seek reelection. Ramsey has served on the commission since 1994.

The general election will take place April 2.
