Janice Stevenson, owner of Wackenhut Gartens, says people often guess that her store at Jackson and Lima Center roads was originally a church or a school. A former resident reported that people often knocked at his door thinking it was the township hall.

To The Horizon - Lima Township: This aerial photographer's view shows Four Mile Lake in the foreground, the largest body of water in Lima township. The lake was so named because it is four miles due west of Dexter. Wooded areas (in background) encircle some of the 150 farm properties in the township. The township has 71 miles of rural roads, many of them scenic trails, and a population of about 1,000.

Overturned Rig Blocks I-94. Eastbound traffic on I-94 at Fletcher Rd., just east of Chelsea in Lima Township, was impeded early this morning when a tractor-trailer truck loaded with canned goods went into a spin and overturned across most of the roadway. Sheriff's deputies said the driver escaped injury. Before the overturned truck could be moved, it had to be unloaded. Eastbound traffic was directed around it.
