Bake sale to the rescue

Thank you to Tiffin Tractor Supply Co. for hosting our bake sale the Saturday before Easter. It was to help out Wyandot County Horse and Pony Rescue Center. It was a success thanks to all the family, friends and TSC customers who were very generous in baking and buying all the tasty ...

In defense of ‘Field of Dreams’

Totally disgusted with the article in The A-T, “‘Field of dreams’ is a terrible movie,” by Paul Newberry. “Field of Dreams” is an excellent movie. A little far-fetched? Yes. If Newberry had to critique each character, their color or whatever he was ...

Farewell Seneca County

Setting here at my computer, I’m thinking about our move out of state coming in a few weeks. I’m reflecting on all that’s happened since moving back to Seneca County 14 years ago, after being gone for more than 25 years. The friends we’ve made, the family we’ve lost and the ...

Communicate respectfully

Respectful communication can solve many problems; shouting in anger can cause more. I was not much older than 4 years—if even that old — when I saw my first big fight between two grown men. I can’t remember all the details, because that was over 80 years ago. I just remember two men ...

Millennials choose #SenecaCounty

I have long thought that #SenecaCounty was a great place to live and work. As a member of the Gen X generation, the area has offered everything I have needed for a fulfilling life. Jobs, business and educational opportunities, as well as being a great place to raise a family with awesome school ...

Approve the Clyde-GS levy

Voters in the Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District will be asked to support an emergency operating levy to avoid deficit spending in the coming years. The levy would generate $1 million annually over the next 10 years for day-to-day expenses, such as personnel, school ...

Wake up and do your job

What is happening in Washington? I think the Democrats have finally gone nuts. They are going to try to impeach President Donald Trump no matter what. They have lost all reason and have forgotten what they were elected to accomplish. They are supposed to be working for the people who elected ...

Thanks, career fair partners

The Tiffin Business Advisory Council would like to thank the following businesses for making the Career Fair 2019 March 27 a success. The day was designed to allow student to talk with businesses to learn about different careers and the training needed to obtain these jobs. The time also ...

Thanks to Community Read supporters

THANKS TO COMMUNITY READ SUPPORTERS Tiffin-Seneca Public Library would like to thank the Seneca County community for its support of the 2019 Community Read. This year’s book was “The Atomic City Girls” by Janet Beard. For younger readers, we selected “Bomb: The Race to Build — And ...

Grateful for store

I was so excited a year ago that Pat Catan’s was putting in a yard goods department. I have gone there almost weekly to buy material, zippers, etc. The employees was always helpful and came in a timely manner when I needed material cut. They carried good-quality merchandise. I didn’t have ...

Not your money

Democrat socialists sure worry about how much money others make. What business is it of theirs? People who have worked hard and achieved their wealth have a right to make as much as they want. These Democrats ask, “How much is enough?” Bernie Sanders has three huge homes. How many does he ...

Elect doers, not talkers

I cannot believe the amount of negativity in the Democratic Party. They not only dislike Trump, but they dislike most Republicans, as well. This is very unsettling. Why would a party that wants to represent all Americans not like half of the voters? Why would any sane person want to be ...

Make railroad yard walkways safer

Ohio House Transportation Committee members: I am requesting that you please consider supporting HB 186. One component of this legislation concerns proper walkways in railroad yards. The SMART-TD and the Ohio State Legislative Board represents the crafts of railroad employees known as ...

Invest in local schools

Voters in the Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District will be asked to support an emergency operating levy to avoid deficit spending in the coming years. The levy would generate $1 million annually over the next 10 years for day-to-day expenses, such as personnel, school ...

Celebrate Arbor Day

Dear citizens of Tiffin, The eternal promise of spring has arrived. April is when we celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day, both falling during the last week of the month. In celebration of Arbor Day, the Tiffin Tree Commission invites the community to participate in the planting of trees at ...

A taste of the past

Today, I visited my past to a place my parents took my brother, sister and I quite often. Jolly’s. The location is different and the female carhops are now long gone. Jolly’s opened in 1947, still family owned. Yes, I fell prey to all of the big-name burger shops and restaurants now ...

Build the wall

I see by the April 4 paper, Jonah Goldberg has taken on the role of personal immigration expert who thinks he knows all about the border crisis. He again gets his information from whoever. The president is right there. There is a crisis at the border, he has been there and talked to the people ...

Action delayed

Republican State Rep. Bill Reineke entered the 2020 race for the Ohio Senate’s 26th District seat April 8 just as Ohio taxpayers were learning they may never fully recoup $137 million lost to e-charter attendance scams. This serves as a reminder that Reineke accepted more than $12,000 in ...

Upset with coverage

Calvert Elementary School would like to recognize the efforts of everyone from the Tiffin Police Department earlier this week regarding an incident which occurred on our playground. Their swift and immediate response was impressive, to say the least. Sgt. Rob Bour and Lt. Jason Windsor took ...

Look in your backyard

What has happened to our elected officials in the House and Senate? The Mueller report is finished and President Donald Trump has been exonerated of collusion. Why are the liberals in Congress so upset? They were planning on a big report that would let them impeach Trump of wrongdoing and ...
