Richwood mayor, recorder charged with misdemeanors after fight

This had been brewing for a while: Feuding Richwood officials charged. But it doesn't make it less sad to see politics in your hometown end up like this.

Baber is absolutely correct: anytime someone tries to improve the city, the old guard seems to try to stop it.

Also, coming from a Huntingtonian perspective, it seems laughable that some bored county mountie would search a 17 year-old's pad for a hash pipe. Aren't there some Ontarians on Rt. 19 that need pulled over for goig 53 in a 55?

That being said, Baber couldn't be handling this any worse. Politicians, even if they really don't like a given police force, should keep their mouths shut on that subject. I just guess it is hard for someone to go from "being put down by The Man" to becoming "The Man" himself.
