Letters to the Editor

Puppy mill owners should be punished I am writing in regard to the puppy mill that was found. Many of us are watching to see what if anything will be done about this. In my opinion anyone that lets this go unpunished, is just as guilty as the abusers. I have a mom dog that didn’t know how to ...

#MeToo movement hits year 2

Letter: Suicide prevention

With October being Suicide Prevention Month, I have some thoughts to pass along. I had a conversation with a therapist who treated patients with depression. He said he had patients have a thyroid panel done before starting treatment. Thyroid function plays a part in moods, energy and even ...

Weekend Edition Letters to the Editor

Sales tax on ebay? As of Sept. 1, the state of Ohio is charging sales tax on ebay purchases. It’s bad enough that many items purchased on ebay came from basements, attics and garages and had taxes paid on them long ago, but they are also charging tax on the shipping of these items! How do ...

Why return the dogs?

I am wondering how a judge could return the two dogs to people who are abusive to their dogs. The newspaper said they were therapy dogs. What kind of therapy dogs are they? Have they had any training to do therapy? Do they have certification that they are registerd therapy dogs? I would like to ...

Thank You, Brakstin!

I would like to offer a brief word of “congratulations” to Columbian student Brakstin Hockley for such superb letters in The Advertiser-Tribune. As an educator at Heidelberg University for 37 years and a biologist, there were certain qualities I looked for in my students; these qualities ...

Destruction of Others’ Property is Against the Law

God plants inside each of us the sense of knowing right from wrong. It is called conscience. Obviously, whoever intentionally destroyed pro-life signs three different times on U.S. 224 near U.S. 23 chose to ignore those gut feelings. Since these signs were demolished that many times it is ...

Use the light in the dark world

There is much evil and darkness in the world today. Abortions, gay marriage, drug use, a complete turning away and abandonment of Christian values and the list goes on and on. It is said that the darkness cannot stand against the light. When a candle is lit in a black room the darkness must ...

Thank you for responding, but…

Before I say anything else I want to thank you for articulating a response and for being respectful, even when your opponent is a high school student. I also want to thank you for accepting the scientific consensus of climate change, although I shouldn’t have to thank someone for that, it ...

Lack of coverage by The A-T

I am writing to you in hopes that what was not reported about the Seneca East football game against Edison does not occur again this week or any of the weeks to follow. It was a great game against a Division 4 school, I was there and looked forward to reading about their accomplishments of the ...

Response to Hockley and Orians

I read with interest Brakstin Hockley’s and Rebecca Orians’s letters on Global warming. I give Brakstin credit for the gumption to write with his convictions on the subject. I do wonder however if he is, as Rebecca says “regurgitating” the present teachings on the subject. I wonder if ...

‘RED FLAG’ LAW SHOULD BE FOR MOTORISTS FIRST

I suggest that we try “Red Flag” law on motor vehicles first. Motor vehicles account for more deaths in the U.S. than firearms, even though there are many more firearms. This fact is often overlooked or ignored. Facts will, sometimes, mess with some people’s opinion. One popular ...
