Belpre, Ohio, from Alan Millhone

February 26, 2008 |

Our new Mayor, Mr. Mike Lorentz, was interviewed today and announced that tomorrow morning at 9:30 PM Presidential contender Hillary Clinton will be at Belpre High School to deliver her message. My little town of 9,000 has never had a Presidential hopeful ever visit. Her husband was in Marietta,Ohio (11 miles upriver from Belpre) last week to campaign for her.

I graduated from Belpre High in 1966 and know the auditorium well and wonder how many they can fit into that room? Doors open at 8:00 PM and I can only imagine the crush of people and news media that will be there. Belpre is but a little dot on the map, but history will be made there tomorrow morning. On another note, Michelle Obama will speak tomorrow at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio (about 30 miles from Belpre).
