Letters to the Editor

No on DORA

I have been watching the newspaper, hoping to see more letters against the downtown outdoor refreshment area, but unfortunately, there have not been any. Yet, every person I talk to is against it. At the second reading, again, there were business owners pushing for it. I truly cannot see how ...

Abortion bill

I hope you were totally dismayed at Virginia’s state delegate, Kathy Tran, to propose a bill to kill a baby after it is born. This is the cause Democratic Socialists politicians are taking. For a long time, the Democratic Party has been the party of death. This is just one of the many ...

Is our downtown Tiffin success for naught?

Last weekend, The A-T and another publication heralded the recognition of downtown Tiffin for the third year in a row as a “National Main Street Community.” This is for good reason. This prestigious distinction is bestowed on a select group of communities by Heritage Ohio because of their ...

A discussion of our argumentive state

“Don’t trade your authenticity for approval.” - unknown Right on, Ron. Paul! You sure did hit the nail on the head with that answer! Paul seems to be a man who doesn’t waste words. I may not agree with everything he says, but I certainly do with his answer to a question he was ...

Is it criminal?

The following is an open letter that is being submitted to the Seneca County Health Department and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. First allow me to preface my query. As anyone who lives in or near Fostoria certainly knows, Sunny Farms Landfill has had a grotesque impact upon local ...

Professing concern

The A-T’s fourth installment in a series about building the wind farms addressed more pros and cons. The problem is, if the pros win and the windfarms are built, what do we do about the cons and their legitimate concerns? Ronald Williams, Fostoria

Warm thoughts

There are many things to be thankful for during this recent arctic blast and winter weather. Good planning from our government entities allowed our libraries, community and senior citizen centers across Ohio to be safe havens from the bitter cold. Our charitable organizations and churches ...

Wind farm OPSB meeting

Just a reminder to everyone of the Ohio Power Siting Board meeting April 23. It is important that all who are concerned have a chance to voice or submit their input about the wind farms proposed for our area. It will be at the Marion Center, 235 Miami St., on the Tiffin University campus from 3 ...

Critical of hypocrites

The darkness spreads and grows stronger as more and more people turn away from the light. What am I talking about? I am talking about the hypocrites who say they are Christians and yet they either support or do nothing about the crimes that are committed against heaven such as abortion or gay ...

The answer isn’t blowing in the wind

The new Budweiser commercial shown during the Super Bowl claimed it is powered by 100-percent renewables, which is a fallacy. Did you notice there weren’t any homes shown near the turbines? The reality is much different for us here in Seneca County. We have said numerous times previously ...

What is life?

In the past few weeks we have had several states in our country pass or consider some of the most barbaric abortion laws to date. At this point, they are only talking about the most innocent of lives, the unborn and newly born. These proposals and laws on abortion and infanticide are horrific, ...

Using marijuana as a medicine: driving cautions

Did you know that, according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, after alcohol, marijuana is the most commonly used drug when driving? And that driving under the influence of over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, marijuana, or other illegal drugs, is just as dangerous as ...

No on DORA

Like many others, I was very disappointed in the first reading of downtown outdoor refreshment area and that there was a lot of outside support for it at that meeting of Tiffin City Council. I understand there are 14 businesses that presently want this plan, that all serve alcohol. DORA will ...

Proud of roots

A touching letter in The Advertiser-Tribune Jan. 16, was written by Anne (Feasel) Brooks, Zion Crossroads, Virginia, “The risk of ripping out those roots.” I don’t know you, Anne, but I know your family. I grew up on our home farm several miles south of your great-grandparent’s farm, ...

CERT grateful for community support

The Seneca County Community Emergency Response Team would like to thank all the donors who contributed to our CERT Association Fundraiser account at Old Fort Bank this past year. Your donations help provide roadside equipment and training to keep our team members safe as they direct traffic at ...

Thanks to Allen Eiry

Back during the 1950s, Allen Eiry was known as a generous person who helped build local businesses by supporting them with funds he had saved. Today, his hard-earned savings keep on giving to the people of Seneca County. The Allen Eiry Center Inc. has been “serving seniors since 1971.” ...

Attend landfill meeting

One of the most troubling aspects of the current conversation in regards to Sunny Farms Landfill is that this stain on northwest Ohio is gearing up for yet another expansion. There is a documented history of non-compliance with Environmental Protection Agency directives, in addition to ...

Deciding correctly on Seneca Wind project

Others have said the Seneca Wind project should not be built for a variety of reasons, among these being the heavy financial cost to agriculture and the environmental toll that will occur by the killing off of bat populations that are a proven result of wind turbines; the dangers to underground ...

Journalism is dead

Saturday, The Advertiser-Tribune ran a front-page article telling readers that the discredited website, BuzzFeed, had anonymous sources alleging President Donald Trump obstructed justice. But special counsel Robert Mueller issued a statement at 7:30 p.m. Friday that said BuzzFeed’s story was ...

Poll: Shutdown drags Trump approval to yearlong low

WASHINGTON — A strong majority of Americans blame President Donald Trump for the record-long government shutdown and reject his primary rationale for a border wall, according to a new poll that shows the turmoil in Washington is dragging his approval rating to its lowest level in more than a ...
