Kudos for Commission on Aging

I would like to applaud the Commission on Aging for the work they are doing for senior citizens in Fostoria and the article in The Advertiser-Tribune Sunday, May 6, 2018. Fostoria has a beautiful building at the site of the former L & K Restaurant on Route 12.  It is a very positive ...

Lets talk

People who insist that it’s reality to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or who cite ancient history when “proving” the city’s former status or who try to go with literal passages from the Hebrew Scriptures must also recognize the fact that we too then must give this land we ...

A misguided editorial

I would like to comment on the A-T editorial of 5/14/2018, a Breitbart-like harangue about “moving the US out of a corner” supposedly built by Democrats and President Obama. It seems you are as obsessed with our former president as is our current occupant of the White House. Granted, you ...

Voice opinion on wind turbines

My husband and I live in Bloom Township. Our rural community is made up of wonderful people who cherish being outdoors. We are not living here by chance, we are living here by choice. We all take great pride in our homes in Seneca County. We take pride in our yards, gardens, ponds, woods and ...

Listen to Seneca Anti-Wind Union

We are lifelong residents of Seneca County. We raised our family, built our dream home, worked and invested into our community. It was only recently that we learned that county leadership and our elected officials had decided to pursue industrial wind farms for the county. Industrial wind ...

Rose taken from mother’s grave

On Mother’s Day, I bought a red rose with baby’s breath and put it in the vase on my mother’s grave (Nancy L. Work) in Greenlawn cemetery around 9 a.m. At 6 p.m., I returned to the cemetery to water the rose only to find someone had taken the rose. Although I did not see the individual ...

Israel … The rest of the story

My reply to the article “Haunting Events In Gaza:” The problems between the Palestinian people and Israel are a very complex issue. Who’s really behind all these problems in the Gaza strip? It’s true the Palestinian people are fed up, but who’s responsible for all the pain and ...

Against wind turbines

My wife and I, both lifelong residents of Seneca County, purchased our home in Bloom Township about two years ago. Our property/home is the definition of the Seneca County dream. Our home sits upon 18 acres that are located on the most peaceful backroad that cuts right through the beautiful ...

Opposing Seneca Wind

For more than 31 years, we have resided in Eden Township, which is zoned agricultural and residential. We have enjoyed living in this beautiful, productive area close to Forrest Nature Preserve and Honey Creek, which is a flyway for eagles and herons, and home to many songbirds. We also are ...

Neither free nor green

Have you seen the signs “No wind turbines in Seneca County” or read the recent articles in The A-T concerning this issue? Many in our community are unaware of the consequences that would result from installing wind turbines. Here is an outline of the proposed wind turbine projects: What: ...

Harry and Meg souvenirs already in gift shops

I went to the British Museum recently to lose myself in history for the afternoon. It’s a huge building, filled with enough exhibits to keep you time traveling for ages. If “Night at the Museum” were a documentary, I’d be first in line to have a chat with the pharaohs, maybe get my ...

Thank a teacher

“A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.” — Brad Henry Another “special day” coming up? Yes, we have a lot of them that are considered to be special and worthy enough to be placed in that category. And, indeed, while some of them ...

Volunteers key to success

The 2018 annual book sale sponsored by the Friends of the Tiffin Seneca Public Library is in the books. And it was a successful effort thanks to the many volunteers who sorted, set up and replaced the books. Thanks also to the public who donated and purchased books. The book sale is a major ...

Where are we headed?

A few comments on an ad from the Sunday Advertiser-Tribune for Dennis Kucinich and Tara Samples, Progressive Democrats. The ad was a checklist titled “give the power of government back to the people.” One idea on the list was to increase the minimum wage to $15. In our economic system ...

Good neighbor contract

As adjacent landowners to a proposed wind turbine site, we have been given a 13-page good neighbor contract that is titled “Wind Farm Neighbor Easement And Setback Waiver Agreement” that is intended to serve as an incentive to be cooperative with the Seneca Wind farm project. If we sign it, ...
