Renew the TCS levy

First and foremost, we would like to start by thanking the Tiffin community for the continued support of Tiffin City Schools. Our community has supported this particular renewal levy since 2004, which provides 6 percent of our general funding and allows us to maintain our current level of ...

Not in my backyard

I have a question. Regarding the April 13 A-T article titled “Officials Back Wind Turbine Bill,” the officials noted in the article who are on record of supporting the proposed Republic and Seneca Wind farm projects included State Rep. Bill Reineke, County Commissioner Holly Stacy, County ...

Pass road, bridge levy

In 2004, I left Tiffin to pursue an engineering degree with hopes to one day come back and hold a position where I could better my community. That time came in 2013, when I was hired by the city of Tiffin to be its assistant engineer. Having pride and passion for my hometown, along with a never ...

Our firefighters, our protectors

When I was just a boy, we lived on Miami Street. Just a very short distance from the back of our house was (and still is) the B&O railroad tracks, which ran parallel with our back yard at a distance of about 10 yards. One summer evening after everyone had gone to bed, which was about ...

Bake sale to the rescue

Helpers clean up park

Renew the TCS levy

As a 2012 graduate of Tiffin City Schools and a 2016 graduate of Heidelberg University, my life has been positively impacted by the quality of education in our community. In 2016, I had the great privilege of working with educators and community members to continue to support of Tiffin City ...

Vote for road, bridge levy

Tiffin voters, I believe the Tiffin road and bridge levy is one of the best opportunities offered to the Tiffin community in a long time. Road and bridge repairs and replacements are never ending. During Tiffin’s annual budget hearings, we have become uncomfortably aware the road ...

Cross taking the high road

The Cheryl Buckland campaign and cronies are behind the radio ads, TV ads and a phone survey that paints her opponent as too tainted to be elected. This is not a new tactic for old-guard Republicans and Democrats who won’t run a clean campaign for fear of losing power and control to new, ...

Flu season isn’t over

I am writing you to inform the community that influenza (flu) continues to be widespread within our area. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months of age or older receive an annual flu vaccine. Some people are at higher risk of developing serious ...

Recycle totes

I believe the Republic Services trash and recycle bins are 100-percent recyclable materials. If the company does not pick them up in a timely manner, perhaps we should see how well they fit in the new Rumpke bins, thereby doing our part to recycle. Just a thought. Robert Bowman, Tiffin

Host safe events

Dear parent or guardian, This letter is to tell you about the 2018 Parents Who Host, Lose the Most: Don’t be a party to teenage drinking public awareness campaign. Many high school students view prom or graduation as a rite of passage into an adult world in which alcohol and celebrations ...

Her kind of place

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank so many as I close the 44-year chapter of my life. Sunday, I retired after 44 years of working for McDonald’s. I would, first of all, like to thank the late George Ameen and Don Michael for giving me the opportunity to run their Tiffin ...

Vote for Cross

When the people you associate with and your words don’t match your actions, it is time for caution. The Cheryl Buckland campaign for the 83rd district Ohio House seat demonstrates this point. She may be a nice person with experience because of age and work, but the concern for me is that she ...

Bring God back in

The recent school shooting in Florida which tragically took the lives of yet more students has caused many students and parents to protest for stronger gun control. While I admire their dedication to standing up for a cause, I challenge them to stand up for and fight the true cause of ...

Insist on justice

“I want to be shot ... I don’t want this life.” One 22-year-old Palestinian protester uttered this headline to journalists as he joined 30,000 other Palestinians near the border of Israel/Gaza last Friday, our Good Friday. Seven to nine hundred Palestinians were injured, mostly shot in ...
