A big thank you

The Seneca East Baseball Club would like to thank everyone for their support with this years raffle. The continued support of the people and businesses in our local communities is greatly appreciated! It is because of this that the summer baseball program is still getting our children on the ...

Redistricting complaints and issues

Asking for donations from some voters, Representative Jim Jordan recently complained in a letter that the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati ruled as unconstitutional the current Congressional state map, which gives Republicans a 12-4 majority. In a letter to the Toledo Blade (June 14, 2019), ...

Broken Ideas

I worry about what will happen if Trump starts to apply tariffs to products and parts we receive from Mexico. Our President has tried to work with the Democrats to change our laws so our Border Patrol can control the immigration problem. He has tried to get money for a wall but to no avail. ...

Polarization in the U.S. intensifies

Long before Mueller began his investigation, I was concerned about the increased polarization occurring in our country. This polarization has intensified as many choose their corners and reinforce their positions by selectively listening to news that reports what they already believe. I read ...

What has Happened to the Democrats

I watched the Mueller Report and could not believe what he was saying. He made the assumption that Trump was guilty of something without any clear evidence. The thing about his comment was his report proved Trump innocent but he made the ridiculous statement, Trump could be guilty even ...

Biased news coverge

When it comes to biased news coverage, it’s not a question of which channel is biased. The question is: Which is the most biased. I’m sure the answer would be: Well-it all depends on who you ask. If someone were to ask me, I would have to say that it is quite obvious that the answer is CNN. ...

Winterberry Farm opening truly was grand

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the people of Tiffin who attended Sabrina’s opening of her Winterberry Farm. In spite of the inclement weather, it turned out to be a huge success. It was heart-warming to hear all the enthusiasm about this beautiful barn and all the positive ...

An appeal for support

Sen. Rob Portman has distinguished himself as a bipartisan legislator. Now Americans need his leadership in supporting an amendment that will restore our democracy. A 28th Amendment, the Democracy for All Amendment, has been proposed in Congress by a bipartisan group of lawmakers. The ...

Reineke to the rescue

For well over a year now, the citizens of Seneca County have been dealing with what can only be called an invasion by wind companies intent to build hundreds of over 600-foot-tall wind turbines in the area. It has caused a great deal of concern and, even though our Seneca County commissioners ...

Fed up with obstruction

I was reading an article written by Jules Witcover who identifies as a political columnist. By reading his article, he should identify as a Democratic political columnist. He calls President Donald Trump a con man. Trump is the first president who is trying to do what he promised. Not like the ...

Teens need activities

I am a student at Columbian High School and I decided to write about how there is a lack of teenage things to do in town and how that should be fixed. I believe there should be more things for teenagers to do around town so then maybe teens would stay out of trouble and they also would keep ...

Please return wagon

Sometime last week, someone stole my grandkids’ Tonka wagon right from my back yard. I really wish you would bring it back, it belongs to my grandkids. I will not ask any questions. I am offering a $25 reward. It is yellow and black with Steelers stickers on it. It has “Tonka” imprinted ...

May is Motorcycle Safety Month

The cyclist is very vulnerable to all around him and/or her. There is no protection like in a vehicle. We are responsible for wearing proper gear to ride, but we are still low profile. We have responsibilities to help draw attention to us as we ride. So many times, the driver involved in the ...

Share the road

Motorcycles have always evoked an image of freedom, individuality and rebellion. With that freedom, there is also the possibility of an injury. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that motorcyclists are 27 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a ...
