Misses

We’d love to see Biringer Farm in Arlington become part of the Marysville Strawberry Festival. Just because they aren’t in Marysville doesn’t mean that couldn’t happen. They used to be a big part of it. The Sunday after Kids Day would be a great time for that event. Then it wouldn’t conflict with the last Sunday of the Marysville event.

For former DABA president Jeff Phebus, who allegedly killed his wife.
