Hark the Eagle’s Cry

The wind man came and looked over the sky said this will work fine as the eagle flew by. Then came the slick talkers with their dollar signs of many great things did they opine. We’ll put 60 turbines here another 90 over there 600 feet tall they’ll reach into the ...

Carpetbaggers and their turbines

You have read here previously of how sPower refused to cancel my wind lease agreement even after learning their agents had used misrepresentation to get me to sign it. Now comes the story that a great many other people are having problems with them as well. Through the second half of this ...

Rachel Crooks will work for the people

A reform movement is growing in Ohio, and American Promise is leading the way toward a 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution to get unlimited and hidden money out of politics. American Promise is a citizen-led effort to overturn the 2010 Citizen’s United Supreme Court ruling that allowed ...

True awareness about violence

Inside each of us, there is the seed of both good and evil. It’s a constant struggle as to which one will win — Eric Burdon It has been brought to my attention that the month of October has been designated as Violence Awareness Month. We all know what violence is, don’t we? That is, ...

Protect the land

I admire people who speak up. Those were excellent and well-researched letters to the editor written by Jim Feasel, Rick Coffman, Bob and Sandy Kennard and others concerning the proposed wind farms. We must keep informed and press for what we believe is best for our community and county. A ...

Money for schools (again)

As I now drive around the county, I am beginning to see these blue signs saying “Yes” in the shape of a windmill. On the flip side of these signs, it says, “Money for Schools.” Well, I’m old enough to remember when State Sen. Ron Mottl and Gov. John Gilligan, both Democrats, sold us ...

Thank you, gala supporters

The 11th annual Summer Harvest Gourmet Gala benefiting the Franciscan Earth Literacy Center was a huge success! Following the afternoon storms, the sun reappeared and over 200 guests enjoyed a warm summer evening attending the gala in support of the Franciscan Earth Literacy Center. This year, ...

A different approach to addiction

What is addiction? It is a dependence upon substances or destructive behaviors to cope with underlying conditions. Addictions can be extremely thorny and troublesome, but in reality, they are not the problem. The problem is not the addiction. It is actually the symptom. The bondage that they ...

Are wind turbines good for the county?

Every time I hear commissioners Holly Stacy or Shayne Thomas say they think wind turbines are good for Seneca County, I get nauseated. Because of the way they have handled this issue, most people in the county are getting sick over it. If they would just rescind the alternative energy zone ...

Deal with parking issue

I’ve been a lifelong resident of Tiffin. Now that we have seen a lot of interest in the downtown area that has been positive, there still is an elephant in the room. Parking! I do believe the judges who are behind a long-term solution are on the correct path. One idea that seemed to be viable ...

Put it up for a vote

After reading the numerous letters, both pros and cons, about the wind turbines, we would like to suggest the county commissioners postpone their decision until after all tax incentives are off the table. If the project is that beneficial to all Seneca County residents, it will sell itself ...

Join the Walk to End Alzheimer’s

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. As this year’s event co-chair, I am joining participants of all ages in the fight against this disease at our local Walk to End ...

Commissioners out of control on wind

If you are not following the wind turbine saga and how your Seneca County commissioners are handling it, then you should be. Many thousands of county residents have come together in opposition to the wind projects after seeing the meager income to county and schools (18 cents per day for each ...

Wind projects bring moral turpitude to Seneca County

Being a lifelong resident of Seneca County, as well as a 37-year resident of Eden Township in particular, I am saddened at the current level of greed and dishonesty being exhibited by some in the community over the proposed wind turbine projects. The violation I felt last Friday is ...

Majority overruled

The county commissioners who are defending the rights of a few to put wind turbines on their property are doing so to the detriment of the majority. They are putting the profit of a few over the health, well-being and quality of life of those residing in the county. Commissioners who put profit ...

Tilly’s Christmas for Kids fundraiser committee (Tim and Marla Peiffer, Jeff and Gina Gaietto, Fred and Jodi Hade, and Tom Gibson) would like to thank everyone who attended and generously supported this event. The proceeds from this event will be used for a Christmas meal and gifts for ...

Thanks for stuffing the bus, supplying the store

More than 225 children in Seneca County will get a fresh start to the upcoming school year thanks to the support of our generous community. The Stuff the Bus event conducted again this year at Tiffin Walmart was a huge success. We wish to thank Manager Bobby Kadlubowski and his staff for ...

Barn was piece of history

I have a strong exception to your article on the front page of your paper of Aug. 10th, “Reclaimed.” What a tragedy to tear down something so beautiful and in good condition to destroy part of our American history! As Mr. (Eric) Miller pointed out, it is a big piece of history! It ...

Wind turbines built on foundation of lies

A few years back, in order to retain a friendship, I decided I would go along and sign my property next to a friend up for a wind agreement so he, not me, could have a turbine. The agent told me I also would have to sign my other property a mile or so away (where I live) as well. I did not want ...
