Prompt action by Humane Society

Applicants needed for beef ambassador

Sooner than we think, our annual Seneca County Fair and Attica Independent Fair will be upon us. My name is Matt Warner, and I’m the 2016-2017 Seneca County Cattlemen’s beef ambassador. This past year, while representing the Seneca County Cattlemen, I was given the opportunity to visit ...

Review decision

Echoing parts of Paul Pospisil’s recent letter, I must add my outrage to his regarding the treatment of Tonia Hoffert. She came to my home to pick up a contribution to the Seneca County Museum when I was unable to go there. She is passionate about her work and the museum itself. Tonia ...

Another fiasco
