It's got our vote

Suffragette city: The League of Women Voters of Clermont County will honor a local woman who has made a difference in her community at the annual Suffragist Brunch 11:30 a.m-1 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Holiday Inn Eastgate. Who will it be? The nomination rules were simple: She must be a resident of Clermont County, and should show strong leadership qualities and courage. In other words, she should be willing to rock the boat, organizers say.

The award is named for Orpha Gatch (1892-1991), the first woman elected to the Milford School Board; in 1958 she helped create the first Clermont County League of Women Voters.

Tickets are $25. To reserve a spot, log on to www.LWVClermont.com and click on the "2003 Brunch" link.
