Thanks for help with Senior Prom

Keep children safe

This past Mother’s Day, Toledo news media reported an incident no mother should ever have to read or fear; yet another child was shot to death with a firearm. A four-year old boy shot himself with his father’s gun. The report stated it was an “accident.” The toddler “shot himself in ...

Wind turbines and crazy people

A few years ago, I signed a setback waiver agreement so my neighbors could have a wind turbine on their property. It wasn’t the smartest thing I ever did. But because I did, I am very wary of where sPower is wanting to build these new turbines. Just the other day, I read where Ohio Power ...

Stop the insanity

What in the world are the Democrats doing? What must our president do after a three-year investigation which was carried out by people who do not like him? It proved he is not guilty of any crime. They want to keep stirring the pot till the 2020 elections because they have no other agenda to ...

Tunnel Hill just in it for the money

I want my voice to be heard along with others. Please be aware that I speak for myself, but also for those who are scared to speak out for one reason or another. I believe they are afraid to speak because of the size and wealth of Tunnel Hill, and taking on such a task as fighting against ...

Continue to step up and step out

Hope springs eternal! We see spring budding forth in all directions — unabashedly! The trees’ beauty, the cardinals’ singing “Tada” all divert our attention to much-appreciated pleasantries after a long and tiresome winter. Such heart-lifting sights and chants of nature momentarily ...

Thanks, mothers

Today’s mothers have a real challenge! Did I say that just to lift up the mothers because of Mother’s Day? No, I said it because it’s the truth and I’ll explain why. When my wife and I got married, I had a job at the General Electric plant here in Tiffin. It was a good job and paid a ...

Unheardof danger

I would like to share evidence that infrasound produced by wind turbines is harmful to our health. What is infrasound? This is sometimes referred to as low-frequency sound. It is sound lower than 20 hertz, or cycles, below the “normal” limit of human hearing. A colleague, who knows me ...

April 24, Seneca County Commissioner Holly Stacy submitted written testimony to the House Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy Generation regarding her support of HB 6 which, among other things, would provide funds to help keep the Davis-Besse nuclear power plant operational. ...

Time to talk wind turbine setbacks

Per Ohio law, industrial turbines in wind projects must be set back a certain distance from neighbors who are not part of the project. Each year, turbines used in new projects are getting bigger and bigger, from 250 feet tall a dozen years ago to about 600 to 650 feet today. That is as tall as ...

Elect people who care

The border problem has been placed in President Donald Trump’s lap and the liberals are avoiding the issue. I hope they will close the border and add more troops with guns to be more effective. This problem will not go away and the liberals will never give our president a win no matter how ...

Shameful behavior

I was watching the congressional circus that for the last few days has treated Attorney General William Barr like a criminal; but then, Democrats treat everyone like a criminal, so it wasn’t surprising. The questioning was/is vicious, the likes not seen before. The Democrats are crying in ...

Teach nation’s youth about Holocaust

The last men and women who saw the horrors of the Holocaust with their own eyes will pass away within just a few years. No more elderly women will be left to tell about mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters sent to death camps, never to return. No more white-haired veterans who liberated the ...
