TIPP CITY - Due to cuts in state and local funding, Tipp Monroe Community Services (TMCS) has requested that the city allow them to stop paying rent. City Council discussed this proposal at their May 20 study session.
Tipp City provides TMCS with $17,700 annually. The organization then pays $10,000 in rent to the city each year.
TCMS Executive Director Kathy Taylor asked council to consider eliminating their rent until the replacement levy goes on the ballot in 2016. Council will vote on the proposal at their next meeting. Most seemed in favor of waiving TMCS’ rent obligation.

On Feb. 24, Serenity Horse Rescue was raided by the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Miami County Humane Society and Miami County Sheriff’s Office. One hundred and twenty-five animals were removed, and its owner Shula Woodworth charged with five charges and 37 counts of animal cruelty. Although the court procedures for those charges started May 16, her alleged mistreatment of animals started long before the property at Miami County. Woodworth has pled not guilty and denies all charges. Here is the other side of the story: part one of this series will look at the dealings of Woodworth and the rescue at former locations in Warren County.

The mission statement of Serenity Horse Rescue says it is dedicated to “providing sanctuary, rehabilitation, and adoption for horses that have been abused, neglected or are unwanted.” But would Leggs, Blackjack, Sugar, Parmotion, Raja or many other horses agree? All of these animals came in to the rescue if not perfectly healthy, at least in good condition. They left either in a body bag (actually horses were buried on site) or in crippling condition.
