This is a betrayal of promises made by the Ohio legislature which assured motorists that the law was only going to be enforced as a secondary law when the law was being considered for passage. Contact your representatives and let them know you do not support this law.Contact Info: http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/search.cfm#reps_zipView House Budget...

Xenia DUI Salutes Philopotes & Dionysus

Xenia, Ohio is named after the Greek word for "hospitality."  Besides the name for Greene County's seat of government, we owe a great debt to Greek culture and ideals.If you could wander around the Aegean coast around 700 B.C. you would find an abundance of alcohol; wine specifically.  The libation was a mainstay of Hellenistic society and it was used to honor the gods, as currency, as medicine, as a thirst-quencher and to get drunk.  In fact, using alcohol was considered a civic duty in Athens.  At great gatherings and feasts officials, known as oinoptai made sure that the wine...
