Letters to the Editor

Who is the good neighbor?

As I listen to the ongoing wind turbine debate, I don’t feel the problem is with the concerns of the adjacent landowners but rather the problem is with the wind developers and the wind lease holders. The developers recruit lease holders all based on the power and appeal of money. People talk ...

Comments about a wind energy project

Two years ago, I received an invitation from Apex Clean Energy to an Emerson West open house. The evening was to include a short presentation as well as an opportunity to meet members of the Apex project development team and to ask questions. On the front of that invitation was a nice rural ...

Bascom Lions bloodmobile

The Bascom Lions would like to publicly thank the American Red Cross and its mobile unit. Thank you also goes out for the use of Meadowbrook Park and its facilities, and to the Bascom Carry-Out for its donation of the ham salad for those delicious sandwiches. Bascom Lions Club

Bascom Lions Club Parade

The Bascom Lions Club would like to thank all who were present for the 53rd annual parade that took place June 3. We had a very successful parade thanks to the Bascom Fire Department, Seneca County Sheriff’s Department and all others who gave their time and energy. A round of applause goes ...

Thanks for the flowers

Thanks for the flowers To Molyets Farm Market, Thank you so much for the flowers you gave us to plant for our 4-H garden. The Seneca Survivors Clover Bud Gloria Klegman, age 8 Planter/gardener/water girl

Grateful for the experience

To Flag City Honor Flight: I would like to personally thank you and your staff for all the hard work and long hours you have committed in order to put veterans in the spotlight to honor them for a day. I did not know how much it really means to a veteran until I experienced the Honor Flight ...

Join us, please

Quick, join our group before it gets too late! An evil company comes close to us — they want to clean the air! Renewable, clean, it ain’t what we like, not around here anyway. What we really love are coal-fired plants that spew noxious gas into our skies. We like it that they fill the air ...

Pray for ministries

It was an interesting letter written by Michael Canton in The Advertiser-Tribune June 3 concerning the corruption in the Catholic church. I joined the Catholic church in the spring of 1949 for one rason, love for the man I was to marry in June 1949. I learned to know Jesus Christ as my ...

Examine the evidence

Living in Seneca County, we have seen many anti-wind turbine yard signs, read newspaper articles and editorials, and heard many comments, pro and con. With all the anti-wind rhetoric, we decided to see for ourselves what all the vitriol is about. We made a trip to Van Wert, got up close and ...

… and another experience

Not all immigrants coming from Europe were treated equally, as many of the recent letters to the editor seem to suggest. The vast number of immigrants who came to this area of Ohio were German, with some Irish and Italians a distinct minority. I doubt any Jewish immigrants came to the greater ...

Well, here we go again

How are we so blind, ignorant, calloused, cold, without emotion, totally without morals and ethics that a person “gets probation” for taking a dead butterfly from a botanical garden, yet 3,000-plus times a day, a “doctor” takes the life of a baby from its mothers’ womb and it’s ...

Turbines would ruin rural vistas

I invite everyone to visit the wind turbines in Van Wert and Paulding counties and even taller turbines in Hardin county. I did, and then came home to think. Do we want this to happen in our own county and surrounding area? Promotional material from the above wind farms states: “The ...

Answer to many problems lies within yourself

As most of my friends know, I have spent the past four months of my life in and out of the hospital and am now a resident at Autumnwood nursing home. The total number of days in the hospital has given me enough time think about life; time to separate the important from the unimportant and time ...

Pat Catan’s adds yard goods

I would like to say thank-you to Pat Catan’s for putting in a yard goods department. I love to sew and it’s been hard to find what you need in Tiffin. JoAnn’s went out of the mall years ago because the rent was too high. Walmart had a yard goods department and took it out for a few ...

More energy from fields

In 2016, Ohio sent President Donald Trump to Washington to fight for us and the agricultural economy. Across the country, income for farming families has fallen over 50 percent in the last five years. We need the administration to deliver on its promises to restore the might of U.S. ...

Build the wind farm

Yesterday, my mother and I were discussing the wind turbines and she said, “Turbines turning out in the fields, quietly making electricity for 25-30 years, what could be wrong with that?” If you read the Commentary page in The Advertiser-Tribune June 19, page 6A, you know it has been 30 ...

How to get involved

If you are concerned about the multiple proposed wind turbine projects (with 590-foot-tall wind turbines) in Seneca/Sandusky/Huron counties, then now is the time to get engaged! We have great momentum in our favor right now and have established quite the amount of support county and statewide. ...

An opportunity to grow

When people in my community oppose the Republic Wind project, they are hurting truck drivers. It is getting more difficult to drive an 18-wheeler up and down dangerous and congested highways. By our community participating in the wind project, I could work locally on the wind farm and be home ...

Property rights: Real or imagined

As resistance to the proposed industrial wind turbine projects grows swiftly across Seneca County, many of the pro-side arguments are falling flat. People have done the math and are realizing the total monetary benefit (all benefits considered on the Republic Wind and Seneca Wind projects ...

Satan: The real enemy

I write about the corruption of the church. I have seen much pain and people’s faith shaken. However, we as Christians need to remember the enemy is not the church, it’s not even these corrupt priests, it’s Satan. Satan is the real enemy. And what was the promise of Christ? Christ said ...
