Don’t let rights be stolen by Dolan

So now word comes out of Columbus that the Ohio Power Siting Board is seriously considering rules requiring wind companies to report blade throws and other incidents that are threats to public safety. Really? Do you mean they haven’t had to do that all along? Well then I guess it’s time ...

Congrats on PIVOT grant

The League of Women Voters of the Tiffin Area is very happy to congratulate three local officials for their foresight, hard work and dedication in securing a 2 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to fund the drug recovery program PIVOT (Participation in Victory of ...

No voice for the wind turbine projects

In a Seneca, Huron, Erie, Sandusky and Crawford counties area residents are left without a voice in industrial wind turbine (IWT) projects that will impact their area. Not one, two, three, four, or even five, but SIX potential IWT projects are currently in some stage in the development process. ...

Do Your Part

I walk my dog every morning for about two hours. It’s good for her and good for me. I live in the north end of Tiffin close to the river. I have noticed beer cans, pop cans, paper cups, McDonalds bags and all kinds of junk people throw from their cars. Every fast food business is well ...

Wind Turbines Affects on Public Health

Apex can put no justification or price on the general public’s health. What these business people are looking at is income, pure profit for themselves. There will be no income on the health of people living in the proposed areas of Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF’s) of these wind turbines. ...

OSP Wants to Hear From You — Wind Turbines

One would think these were already required, just from public safety issues alone. But, the Ohio Power Sitting Board is seeking your comments by Thursday, July 11, 2019 on proposed revision to its rules to make explicit that wind turbine operators report incidents occurring with a turbine, ...

Farmers count your blessings

Established famers complaining about the wet weather this spring, “count your blessings.” You shouldn't be hurting as much as some of the others. Maybe God is trying to tell us all something. Greed is everywhere. Maybe I'm prejudice. I believe northern Ohio is one of the best ...

A spring with too much rain

I don’t remember a time like this spring with all the rain. I was told 1947 was similar. At that time I moved to town with my parents. Dad had retired from farming leaving my brother to farm. I was working as a billing clerk at American Standard. I would drive out to the farm every ...

Wake Up Before it is too Late

I have been watching the debate between the Democratic hopefuls on Wednesday night television. They were all pushing for the demise of Trump as president. They had very little to say about their plans as president. I think they are having trouble because Trump has delivered on most of his ...

Letter: THINK BEFORE WE ACT

I hear Alexandria Cortez give Amazon hell for not giving its employees a living wage. Fox news reports Amazon pays all employees $15 per hour and have a generous benefit package. This goes to show she has no idea what she’s talking about. This is the normal for most liberals. I listen to ...

Letter: BIDEN SHOULD STAND UP FOR HIS BELIEFS

Actually, I have always liked Joe Biden — I really have even though he’s more liberal than I like. I had always thought that Biden was a person who would stick to his guns when it comes to defending his beliefs. Well — so I thought. But things have changed. Mr. Biden he had always ...

Thanks to the Eagles members

Community Hospice Care would like to thank Tiffin Eagles Club for its more than generous donation of $1,500. A big thank you to all of the Eagles members who so generously worked to raise the money to benefit charities! Many charities in our community benefit from their generousity. Community ...

Thank You 5K Participants

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Airman Nathan E. Smith Memorial 5K Run. A portion of the proceeds were given to our daughter Sarah, and used to cover medical expenses after an extended hospital stay. A special thank you to Erica Smith and her family for organizing this special ...

This is no way to run energy policy

Attending committee hearings at the State Capital on HB-6 is quite a learning experience on how energy policy is conducted in Ohio. With all the discussion wind energy has brought to Seneca County we have heard the wind companies say countless times that we must cut our CO2 emissions and do ...

Progress in Working Together

I listen to the Democratic hopefuls giving their spiels on television and can’t believe the lies they are telling about our President. When you must use lies to promote yourself, you have a problem. That means you have no plan or a very weak one to run on. What more could you do to improve ...

Declawing cats not ok but abortion is?

I see that New York state has stopped the declawing of cats because of the pain and discomfort it causes the ANIMAL, but they allow the killing of a baby as it is coming out of the mother’s womb. How sad is that. Don Kin Tiffin

Free Speech Being Stopped

Do you wonder why I say to listen to Glenn Beck on 1370 a.m. from 9 to noon? Right now Facebook, Google, YouTube, even Pinterest are trying to stop conservative voices. Abby Johnson, who left the abortion clinics, is now on the side of pro-life. Her site is not allowed to show pictures of ...

Socialism and Constitutionalism

The new political trend for many is a move towards socialism, especially with the millenial. The belief that there can be free college, free health care, free this or free that, is getting riduculous. When we were young we learned that everything costs time, money or energy. Things were not ...

Privileged to know Ralph Kieffer

I read with great interest your June 8th Obituary on Ralph K. Kieffer. I had the privilege of knowing Ralph Kieffer as he was my science teacher and basketball coach during the 1964 time frame at Mohawk Jr. High School in Sycamore. Ralph Kieffer was one of the great ones as a techer and ...
