First responders are amazing individuals

Treat Clinton like Trump

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. -Aldous Huxley- As investigations of misconduct mount, can Hillary Clinton avoid jail? That’s a good question, isn’t it? And, considering what has been going on the last few years, so is how much the former director of the FBI has ...

Is it possible to secede the European Union?

June 23, 2016, annoyingly a week and a half early for expats fond of coincidences, Britain voted to leave the European Union. This is an entity difficult to describe to an American. Or maybe not. It’s kind of like a wannabe United States. Although the EU is comprised of separate countries (as ...

True plans not true

Now I see the true plans for the left for the 2020 elections. They know they do not have any logical or specific goals to defeat President Donald Trump. He is doing everything he said he would do if elected. There is a new plan by the left. They are going to drag everything up they can find, ...

It’s their right

I read an interesting letter to the editor today. It was submitted by Stanly Hoffman and it was in regards to the church in Fort Seneca. Seems the writer was concerned about how the pastor there conducted services and what version of the Bible was used. I’d like to say beforehand that I, too, ...

Stop listening to hate

The recent comments made by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar concerning the nation of Israel has prompted decades-old accusations of anti-semitism. If you critize the government of Israel or the country itself, then one is automatically speaking anti-Semitic views, and the two accusations could not be ...

Congregants reply

We are writing in response to the letter, “Change is Needed,” in the March 8 Advertiser-Tribune. One opinion does not speak for the congregation of Fort Seneca Community Church. Pastor Nathan and his family came to us two years ago when we were in need of a pastor. We continue to grow ...

Goals, incentive, motivation

When push comes to shove, we are a small town. As a community, we have a conscience, pride, enthusiasm, each generation trying to do better for the next generation. We deserve a pat on the back. Stephen B. Gaietto, Tiffin

Domestic violence and politics

Imagine a six-year-old sitting at a table where his parents are engaged in a heated discussion. As it escalates, his dad begins hurling vulgar insults at his mom. Unexpectedly, his mom stands and throws her plate of food at his dad. Food and little ceramic bits hit his small body and face. ...

Work together

I read the article by Jonah Goldberg in the Feb. 22 Advertiser and was appalled by his lack of knowledge about the emergency at our southern border. All information coming from there by the people who police it, the drugs, felons and illegal immigrants, are at a critical stage and increasing at ...
