    Thursday Oct 12 | The Ashland Daily Tidings

In other words, what are the chances the property, which hasn't been used as an elementary school since it was closed in 2004, will remain, in the words of the school board, “in the public trust?” The good news for the large faction of Ashlanders who want the 3.74-acre lot at 265 N. Main St. to remain public is, Ely likes the odds that that will happen.
