Letters to the Editor

Why?

A heinous act happened in Florida! Another school shooting. These events have been happening on a more frequent basis. The question is, why? Almost immediately the politicians and media got on their soap boxes and started placing blame. It didn’t take long for sides to start forming and ...

Society, parents failed

I just finished reading the letter from Ginny Bursa, and I agree with everything she stated. Her research is appreciated and needed. I believe abortion could be cut down if only people knew how the abortion is performed. I once stated in a letter to the editor how it is done (which was a mild ...

Turn to the Bible

On Wednesday following the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, Bret Baier of Fox News commented, “Why haven’t we figured out a way to prevent these shootings yet?” I’d like to offer a solution. Let us put God back into our schools. Let us be able to give ...

Thanks for supporting Eagle Scout project

My name is Jacob Amlin, an Eagle Scout of Troop 444. I wanted to extend my thanks to everyone who helped me complete my Eagle Scout project, which is a handicapped-accessible deck overlooking the Sandusky River in Schekelhoff Park at the end of North Water Street in Tiffin. There were many ...

Stand for life

Life: the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity and continual change preceding death! This seems to describe a fetus; a living, growing, evolving life. The act of growing is life, so when and ...

Reply to Joe Snyder

As a parent, it is never easy to watch your kid sit the bench. We know, we have been there! It rips your heart out, it makes you bleed inside to know your child is hurting because they want to be out there playing with their team. There is another side to sitting the bench that my oldest son ...

Where is the love?

Where is the love? On this special day of love, I felt compelled to write to speak out for the more than 58 million babies who will not be celebrating this special “love” day! Valentine’s Day is often portrayed by heart, and of course rightly so, because no one can be alive without a ...

Remembrance

Happy Valentine’s Day! I don’t get these greetings anymore and I miss them. My husband always remembered my birthday, our anniversary, Mother’s Day and any special day with a greeting, a hug and kiss. I seldom got a card or a bouquet of flowers. I didn’t need it, I had his presence. ...

Letters to the Editor, Feb. 12

Calvert does not own it Mrs. Wank, I was not present at the game in question, however, I must say ... I believe you, as a parent, of a soon-to-be Calvert transfer student. I can assure you they don’t admit when they are wrong or live by the Golden Rule! My son has been a student of the ...

Sharing his story in 2010 and again today

Over Christmas break, our family and some friends were out to dinner to celebrate my mom’s birthday. I had the privilege of meeting an older gentleman who introduced himself as “Uncle Al.” Showing genuine kindness and interest, he began to ask me about my experience as a college student ...

Sharing the message

Thank you from everyone at Calvert Catholic Schools. We celebrated Catholic Schools Week with many different activities and guests sharing the message of faith, success and school pride. We are very blessed to have the support of so many in this community who believe in the freedom of choice. ...

Reply in rebuttal

In reply to a recent letter in The Advertiser-Tribune concerning President Donald Trump, mainly because I am sick and tired of the liberal Democrats, and sorry Republicans acting like morons in trying to impeach the president: Bankruptcies are a way of life in the business world. The ...

We would like to thank Tiffin Community Foundation and National Machinery Foundation for the grants we receive in support of the Seneca County General Health District’s Personal Care Program. These grants will assist our program to allow those 60 and older with health problems that need ...

Living a legacy

Years ago, I heard it said, “Everyone needs a hobby.” A hobby? I had a husband, three growing boys, a herd of dairy cattle to care for, the land, household duties. My life was full. I was joyful. I had learned to crochet. I did enjoy sitting a few minutes a day reading a farm article, an ...

Another side of the story

“There are always two sides to every story.” Many of us probably remember our parents and teachers telling us this whenever we got into a disagreement with a sibling, classmate or teammate. Fortunately, this is one of those timeless adages that still holds true today. As a member of the ...

A little integrity

“Sports do not build character. They reveal it.” — H. H. Broun Yesterday I attended a junior high basketball game at New Riegel School. New Riegel junior high girls were hosting Calvert junior high girls for regular season play. As the game proceeded, I witnessed again and again some ...

A salute to nurse aides

A salute to nurse aides Too often, we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. — Leo Buscaglia Well, here I did it again; I started something and ...

Thanks for supporting Stagecoach Productions
