On occasion, we in Shiloh, Samaria, Israel would get mail that was intended for Ohio. Why? Well, I at first thought because our zip code, 44830, was similar to Ohion's. But that's just part the answer.

There really is a Shiloh, Ohio and from the new report below, it sounds just like our village life:-

Shiloh mulls shortage of staff for digging jobs
News Journal correspondent

SHILOH -- Village Council continues to discuss how to comply with an Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirement that a minimum of three workers be on site for jobs that require digging. The village has two.

Village Administrator Rick Reeder told council Monday he had confirmed the three-worker OSHA rule. Council, which earlier decided against hiring a third full-time employee, discussed part-time alternatives, but did not make a decision.

Reeder also reported Quality Lines will begin work this week to complete the village's electrical upgrades.

Also, smoke testing of sanitary sewer lines will begin Aug. 9. The testing is a
requirement of the Environmental Protection Agency.

In other business, council:

• Heard that Lee and Mary Chronister will be Grand Marshals of this week's ox roast parade.
• Approved an agreement to deposit public funds with the Citizen's Banking Company for five years beginning Aug. 24.
• Accepted a $290 donation from Mount Hope Lutheran Church to buy mulch for the park.
• Agreed to advertise for bids for repairs and renovations of the police outpost

Council will next meet at 7 p.m. Aug. 12.
