The Rural View

Bruce Stambaugh writes about nature, weather, hobbies and people, often using personal experiences. Much to their dismay, he also writes about his family. He uses humor and pathos when he can't think of anything else to include. Bruce has won the Ohio Newspaper Association's Osman Hooper original column award, third place, and writes a weather column for Farming Magazine. He is a retired educator, retired volunteer firefighter/EMT, community activist, husband, father, grandfather, brother and favorite, though modest, son. He lives with his wife in an equally modest home built on an Amish farm in Saltcreek Twp., Holmes Co., Ohio. View Bruce's Blog
