The Wapakoneta Rotary Club had the privilege to hear from an Ohio Supreme Court justice at their Monday meeting.

Justice Sharon Kennedy was in town to give a bit of a history lesson. Kennedy said she likes speaking in all communities throughout Ohio and spreading her message that the people are in control of the justice system. She began by giving an overlay of the United States and Ohio Constitutions, trying to get people to think back to the key educational components. Kennedy said with the power people have, they can do two things.

"I hope they leave with a sense of remembering history and a sense of empowerment that they are the government, they can control it by their representative voice whether that's at the ballot box but also when they pick up the phone and say there should be a law or there shouldn't be a law," said Justice Kennedy.

While out and about, Kennedy also talks about her latest initiative to grow the number of veteran's treatment courts in Ohio.
