The property is zoned commercial general retail and has utilities, according to CBRE. Walmart bought the land in 2013 with plans to relocate its nearby Walmart and Club stores in Fairlawn to the Rothrock site.

But the retailer faced stiff opposi- tion from Fairlawn officials and the potential move created friction between city and township leaders. In response to the com- plans, Fairlawn a i Rothrock to through traf- fic. The decision, which prompted a lawsuit that the city won, made it more difficult for many motor- ists to reach the site. WALMART From Page B1 By Ray Booth The Daily Jeffersonian GateHouse Media Ohio CAMBRIDGE It was the second won- derful day of the While honors for the most wonderful day must still reside with the visit of Santa Claus, for many people of cer- tain generations the second most wonderful day was when the Sears appeared in the mailbox at some point before Christmas. Or some people may a Christmas catalogs like the from J.C.

Penney or the one from Montgomery Ward. a i i a Christmas catalogs have fallen by the wayside. Sears, which recently announced filing for bankruptcy, made an effort to restart the tra- dition last year but has no plans for any further Wish Books. Both J.C. Penney and Montgomery Ward offer some online versions of their catalogs.

But whatever com- pany and whatever age, it was a day of wonder and dreams when the i a a a arrived on the doorstep. That day signaled hours upon hours of wishes and hopes as children circled the gifts that they antici- pated Santa Claus, or, as a last resort, their par- ents, would bring them on Christmas morning. Shon Gress, director of the Guernsey County Senior Center, recalled: remember how excited I would get when the Christmas shopping catalogs would arrive. I would spend countless hours examining every toy and every sometimes it about what I wanted, but what buy for other people if I had the money. I would flip through and pick out high dollar items I wanted my mom or dad to have too.

It was a book filled with wishes, dreams, and false hopes, but I never lost faith. Sometimes Santa would actually deliver some- thing I asked or hoped for on Christmas morn- ing. Even after I would items and pages, cut pictures out of the catalog for I get what I wanted for Christmas there was always my birthday in With the help of Gress and the staff at the Guernsey County Senior Center, here are thoughts that some area residents provided: Stephanie year I could not wait for the mailman to bring us the cata- log at Christmastime. I would make a detailed list, down to description and page number, of all of the things I wanted Santa to bring me. One of the most important things was a Snoopy sno cone machine.

For many years I ask him to bring me one and for many years I was disap- pointed. I finally received one from my mom on my 30th birthday and have yet to take it out of the Susan Stuebe: memory of the Sears catalog is before I could read, looking at pages of toys before Christmas. My older brothers would giggle and ogle over Of course all this activity took place in peace and quiet private time the Roger Davis: can remember going through page after page of the Sears cir- cling the things I wanted Santa to bring me. I nagged my mother and father constantly for these things, toys that last much beyond Christmas morn- ing. Looking back, amazing that my parents tolerated my constant whining so well.

Every Christmas, I got what I had circled, made Christmas dreams come true i but in the drug world, is slang for "golden research chemi- or golden synthetic narcotics, court docu- ments said. The website offered 30 illegal drugs, a U.S. Agency investigator said in an affidavit, including chemical cousins of fen- tanyl and street drugs knows as flakka and pink heroin. To order from this and other similar drug sites, people needed to know the chemical abstract numbers universal unique numbers assigned to chemicals and com- i scientific community. Carfentanil, for example, is 59708-52-0.

Online dealers use the numbers trying to avoid law enforcement, court documents said. Investigators began purchasing drugs from the website and having them shipped to a post office box in Summit County. One package, sent in December 2016, con- tained a synthetic opioid so potentially dangerous that investigators never opened the sealed foil envelope of drugs before sending it to the state crime lab for testing. As the transactions continued, law enforce- ment sent subpoenas to FedEx to find out where the packages of drugs came from. They learned that dozens of packages were being sent and delivered to addresses at a home and industrial park near Boston.

Many were addressed to Bin Wang, court records said. In January 2017, at the request of the DEA, federal customs officials pulled Wang aside at the San Francisco airport on his way home from Shanghai. When asked his phone number, Wang provided the same number used by the company that sent the sealed foil envelope of drugs to investigators the month before. Investigators ready to arrest Wang a a taken down, replaced by Authorities believed Wang and others were trying to thwart them, switching traffic to a different site and to i a a a i court records said.

I i Investigators reached out to the new website and continued buying drugs, having them shipped to a UPS Store in Northfield. a i tracked down phone numbers and company records that all came back to Wang, court records show. They also began to follow Wang and, with a court order, watch in real time emails that were sent and received by one of his businesses. A man from Alabama wanted to buy a particular stim- ulant. A woman from Maine wanted the party drug Ecstasy.

In July 2017, an under- cover DEA agent called mobile phone and told him a package of drugs had been seized by federal officials. Wang sarcas- tically, court records said. CHEMIST From Page B1 The Sears was anxiously awaited by many. Seniors fondly recall catalog shopping in days before internet.
