Thanks for caring

On behalf of the Camp Fire Northwest Ohio youth development organizations, we would like to recognize Tiffin-Seneca United Way, its donors and volunteers for their amazing support. Executive Director Pat DeMonte and her dedicated staff lead the way to create a stronger community. Camp Fire ...

Strive for what’s best for all

As I look out of my window this morning, the beautiful sky, the fertile land, the trees beyond, gifts from God, our beloved farming community. Let us keep it that way with the help of almighty God. We are in a quandry. We have let intruders come in to benefit themselves and a few others. We ...

Immigration

In recently looking at what St. Thomas Aquinas wrote on immigration, to me, it’s a common sense guideline on the subject. He stated, “The manner of dealing with immigration is determined by law in the cases of both beneficial and ‘hostile’ immigration. The state has the right and duty ...

Reflections on a Massacre

I have been sitting here for hours trying to write this letter, but I couldn’t find the words. I still cannot find the correct words to express my emotions, thoughts or ideas about the hate/terrorist massacre of 11 Jews in their synagogue Saturday. As a retired professor of Asian history, the ...

Digging deeper

The electorate is faced with an interesting choice this election: Do we simply rely upon the mass media (including The Advertiser-Tribune) and rabble-rousers to sway our vote, or do we dig deeper for the truth? Sadly, much of the media’s reporting over the last two years could have left one ...

Doing the same thing and expecting change

I find it interesting that there seems to be a disconnect in people’s minds when it comes to government and the election process. Being somewhat apolitical, I rarely think about these things, but around election time, it’s difficult to ignore. As the number of fear-based ads designed to ...

Become an independent

You must have been living in a cave the last two years if you did not learn that this nation is under attack. Oh no, not by a force by another nation, but by angry people living right here. As it turns out, the latest threat comes from outside in form of a long caravan of people of all ages. ...

Who would have thought?

sPower is the company behind the Seneca Wind project that wants to build 85 wind turbines over 600 feet tall in Seneca County. As you may have heard, there are a great many people opposed to this happening, for a myriad of reasons. A professional poll done a couple months ago revealed that 3 ...

Thanks for support

Those who organize the Humane Society garage sale would like to thank all who make this event a success: Seneca County Fair Board members who rent us the space, the restaurants that feed the volunteers, the local folks who bring us all the goodies to sell, the folks who come and buy those ...

Zombie run a success

CASA of Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties would like to extend our endless gratitude to everyone who helped to make the Tiffin Zombie Run 5K fundraiser successful! Funds raised from this event will be used to support volunteer recruitment, training and supervision. Our CASA volunteers are ...

Keep up the great work

The Tiffin Area Safety Council is one of more than 80 across the state that partner with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation to promote the importance of workplace safety. We at BWC work closely with the council and member employers in Seneca County and we are always impressed. Their ...

Battling the wind

In a previous letter to the editor, I explained how sPower had used misrepresentation to get me to sign a “good neighbor agreement” for the Seneca Wind project. After finding out I had indeed been lied to, I contacted the company and requested that my agreement be rescinded. I was told that ...

Some being denied the right to vote

After the Civil War in 1868, the 15th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States was introduced and passed nationwide. It states: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of race, color, or previous ...

Vote for Cordray

As a member of the clergy, I often remind the people I serve that the Bible talks more about care for the poor and underserved members of society than about any other single issue. There are many ways that people of faith can address these concerns, but the best way is by voting. I write to ...

Industrial Wind Turbines May Result in $27 Million Property Value Decline

For every flawed study the Big Wind industry presents with no real loss of property value resulting from massive turbines, there are 10 more studies indicating that is definitely not the case. Wind leases continue to be gathered in townships surrounding the rural Tiffin area. There will be over ...

Thanks for helping Team Concordance

Team Concordance would like to thank everyone who supported our efforts this year in the Relay For Life. We would like to thank those who purchased Rada, candy bars, vacation raffle tickets, Indians tickets and gift basket tickets. We would also like to thank those who donated to our team: ...

Thank you for supporting Patron Drive

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the 2018 Patron Drive, the major student-driven fundraiser held each year to support Calvert Catholic Schools. Through the dedication and hard work of many students, parents, staff members and friends, CCS surpassed its goal for the amount ...

Over 500 Concerned Citizens Attend Local Public Meeting

I would like to thank each and every person who attended Seneca Anti-Wind Union’s public informational meeting that was held on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Camden Falls. We had a phenomenal turnout and the event was a HUGE success! People were able to look at all the maps, review information ...

Hopewell-Loudon Renewal Levy

As a proud graduate of Hopewell-Loudon and now a proud parent of Hopewell-Loudon students, I would ask my fellow community members to vote “yes” in support of the upcoming Hopewell-Loudon School renewal levy on Nov. 6. This levy is a renewal tax, not a new tax. While it is understandable ...
