A giving community

It goes without saying that our community is a giving community. That is seen throughout the year in many ways, but at this wonderful season of Christmas, I have been blown away by what people have done for Autumnwood Care Center and its residents. I cannot begin to name all of the individuals ...

Thanks, Tiffin Community Foundation

On behalf of the membership of VFW Post 2858, again I would like to thank the Tiffin Community Foundation for giving us the opportunity to upgrade many items in our post that we could not afford to do by giving us a very generous donation in the form of a grant. This organization has been very ...

Jerusalem, capital of Israel

This is my response to “Expect massive violence in the Middle East” dated Dec. 11. Let’s see if we can clear up a few things about Israel. Israel declared its independence as a sovereign nation in 1948 and shortly thereafter declared Jerusalem as its capital. Israel’s declaration of ...

She took a chance on the man on the corner

It was just a typical Sunday. Later in the morning, as we were running errands through town, we noticed a man dressed in a dark coat with a cardboard sign. As we passed I could not read his sign. I thought to myself, “It’s freezing out, and you are out here more than likely asking for ...

Give a gift that could save a life

Christmastime is near and everyone is running around and buying gifts for the family and friends. I think everyone should consider giving a gift that could save a life. Thousands of people die each year in house fires. Almost all of these deaths could be avoided with smoke detectors. A ...

Expect massive violence in Middle East

Source questionable

The Advertiser-Tribune published, on Dec. 2, a lengthy 17-column-inch editorial piece attacking Sen. Elizabeth Warren for falsely taking advantage of minority status to advance her academic and professional careers. This is old news dredged up in a continuing attempt to discredit Senator ...

Closer to home

May I suggest Mr. Kalnow’s philanthropic endeavors correct the past mistakes of National Machinery. Former employees were caught in the crosshairs of his purchase. These employees lost money due to them in their wage and benefit agreement. Mr. Kalnow was not legally responsible for this ...

Extensive planning

Did you know that preparation for the Christmas season begins way back in October for The Salvation Army? Families and individuals have the opportunity to sign up for the assistance for the Christmas season the last week in October. The next six to seven weeks is spent gathering and organizing ...

Letter to the Editor: America’s problems

Folks, America’s problems are not political: They are spiritual! What I have to say is not meant to offend anyone, but to help as many as possible see the real problem with our country. The majority of Americans don’t want to talk about spiritual things. Everyone wants to do what they ...
