Letters to the Editor

Thanks for helping with Operation Elf

Last weekend, the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library hosted the eighth annual Operation Elf: A Community Christmas Party and we are happy to say that once again it was a huge success! Over 700 people had a great time making crafts, playing games, listening to holiday music, snacking on delicious ...

Give thanks to God

The holidays are upon us. Let us take time to count our many blessings, our beautiful farming community, the fertile soil and all its people. Let’s pray to God that we can keep it that way. It has been a bountiful harvest of grain. Let us give thanks to God. There are still some crops in ...

Thankful for a decorated Christmas tree

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had to make a trip to the post office tonight and came home via Washington Street. Much to my surprise, the tree on the Courthouse Square is decorated. What a beautiful sight! I don’t know if my Letter to the Editor had any influence at all, but I noticed ...

Wind project benefits education

I retired in 2015 after 35 years teaching art and technology for the Seneca East Local School District. I was able to do a lot of wonderful projects with my students, but over the years there were things we could not afford because our school did not have the budget for it. I remember feeling ...

No Comparison

After reading Karin Brown’s letter, I was a little lost (11/30/18 our border compared to the plight of the Jews). These people come to our border, throw rocks at our border patrol and try to crash our border and we’re supposed to just let them in? Besides, we let this caravan in then the ...

Wake up before it’s too late

We hear today of many things and songs that offend some people. We nee to love and forgive each other and show it by forgiving. Ephesians 4:32 “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” And, Romans 5:25 “Who ...

Unreliability has little value

Everywhere we are seeing people who will make money from wind projects making the claim that the price of electricity generated by wind is approaching or has even gone lower than other sources. But making that claim is extremely misleading. Let’s say a new car came out that burned no fuel. ...

Commissioner Stacy’s job is to represent residents

When we read Commissioner Stacy’s editorial from November 20, two words stood out boldly to us...I feel. She stated, “It has been worth it to do what I feel is right for the people of Seneca County.” Commissioner Stacy was not elected to do what she feels. She is being paid by tax ...

Tribute to Law Enforcement

What a wonderful and humble Sunday afternoon I spent with “Shop with the Cops” day. I want to say “good job” for all the love and caring that was given to all the darling kids and their families. Law enforcement throughout the community went above and beyond. I want to say the kids ...

Response to November 30th Letter

In response to the letter Nov. 30, we would like to share our perspective on immigration. While all Nazi’s hated Jews, not all Germans felt the same way. But it seems to us that maybe as a result of feelings of guilt, the country of Germany have let all immigrants enter their country. This ...

Are drinkers responsible?

It is with great interest that I have been following Tiffins’ venture into drinking on the streets. The Downtown Outdoor Refreshment Area discussions have seemed to assume it will require responsible consumption for it to work. As stated in the Tuesday A-T, one of our city council members ...

Time marches on

Well, it has been over a year now since our fledgling group, Seneca Anti-Wind Union, was formed. To many people, we are saviors trying to stave off an industrial giant that is trying to wreck what we all hold dear and true in our lives — our home and property. On the other side of the fence ...

SAWU has not received money from outside organizations

In response to Jim Donaldson’s Nov. 27 Letter to the Editor titled “Koch brothers back anti-wind efforts,” I want to offer the following rebuttal. Right off the top, let’s make it clear that Donaldson couldn’t be further from truth with his baseless allegations. I want it to be ...

Big Wind bouncers make bad neighbors

Nov. 15, I attended the Apex public information meeting for the Firelands Wind LLC-Emerson Creek Project (OPSB case # 18-1607-EL-BGN). These public meetings are required by administrative rules for the Ohio Power Siting Board under OAC 4906-3-03. The meeting had some poster presentations and a ...

More than 20,000 delicious popcorn balls have been made and distributed to date by 60-70 Lions members and community volunteers. This happens 6-9 p.m. each Monday and Thursday at our new location at Westgate Village Shopping Center. Our new location is working great, thanks to Lion Paul ...

The Tiffin Y-Wives would like to thank all those who helped make the 2018 annual Holiday Extravaganza a huge success.This year, we raised funds to help support our Tiffin YMCA and community in accordance with the YMCA mission. A special “thank you” is sent to all the Y-Wives members who ...

Infrasound effects

I congratulate Seneca County for being selected to participate in one of the largest experiments to determine the effects of infrasound on human organ systems. With large numbers of massive wind turbines planned in this densely populated county, medical effects on internal organs can be ...

Blinded by money

I read the following statement at the Nov. 20 county commissioner’s meeting. Public comment: I wasn’t going to attend today’s commissioners meeting, since I didn’t think it would be worth my time, but then I read Commissioner (Holly) Stacy’s letter to the editor in today’s ...

Migration’s parallel to Jews in 1930s

A meme circulated today on social media which brought some thoughts I would would like to share with your readers: The New York Times, Nov. 14, 1938 “Jews on Knees Beg Netherlands Entry; Implore Admission at Border, but Guards Are Doubled,” The New York Times, Nov. 26, ...

Money in chronic sickness

Capitalism is a form of mental illness. This is actually rather easy to prove. All one needs to do is read the Goldman Sachs report from April. In it, they explained that one-shot cures for diseases were problematic, because cures resulted in a “gradual exhaustion of the prevalent pool of ...
