  1. Just a little side note, and not to be mean but someone should really take the time to edit these post and check for spelling and punctuation. It seems insignificant to some, but it really helps those who read the stories. God bless you all for your hard work and dedication to keeping Pickaway County residents informed on what is going on in the community and surrounding areas!
