Learn more about Fatima, rosary

People have the attitude that there is no need to put forth hardly any effort for salvation, as if everyone will be saved, or worse, they call “evil” good, like abortion and gay marriage. Or are people forgetting the words right from the mouth of the only true authority in all of creation, ...

Rescind the AEZ

United We Stand, United We Move

Thanks to you, it works for all of us, The United Way. More than 30 years ago, that statement had a profound effect on me. It still affects me today. I wanted to make sure my financial contributions to society were being used to help those locally, local folks who needed help. Over the years, ...

Thanks for help

I would like to thank, first, my House Committee members, Joe and Theresa Feasel and Kathy Renninger, for all their help in organizing our second annual Leroy Coleman Help a Vet Benefit. The recipient of this benefit this year is Darrell Stump, a Korean War veteran who is encountering many ...

Treat caravan members with compassion

We, the Sisters of St. Francis and Associates of Tiffin, Ohio, recognize the right of every person to live in safety with access to the basic necessities of life. We are watching with growing concern as thousands of persons from Central American countries are making their way through Mexico ...

Does money talk?

There is a flow chart that shows the progressive steps taken before the Ohio Power Siting Board for approvals or disapproval of the wind farms in Seneca County and surrounding counties. We have gone through the steps we needed to by letting the Siting Board know how we feel. If you write to or ...

Strive for what’s best for all

As I look out of my window this morning, the beautiful sky, the fertile land, the trees beyond, gifts from God, our beloved farming community. Let us keep it that way with the help of almighty God. We are in a quandry. We have let intruders come in to benefit themselves and a few others. We ...

Immigration

In recently looking at what St. Thomas Aquinas wrote on immigration, to me, it’s a common sense guideline on the subject. He stated, “The manner of dealing with immigration is determined by law in the cases of both beneficial and ‘hostile’ immigration. The state has the right and duty ...

Reflections on a Massacre

I have been sitting here for hours trying to write this letter, but I couldn’t find the words. I still cannot find the correct words to express my emotions, thoughts or ideas about the hate/terrorist massacre of 11 Jews in their synagogue Saturday. As a retired professor of Asian history, the ...

Doing the same thing and expecting change

I find it interesting that there seems to be a disconnect in people’s minds when it comes to government and the election process. Being somewhat apolitical, I rarely think about these things, but around election time, it’s difficult to ignore. As the number of fear-based ads designed to ...

Become an independent

You must have been living in a cave the last two years if you did not learn that this nation is under attack. Oh no, not by a force by another nation, but by angry people living right here. As it turns out, the latest threat comes from outside in form of a long caravan of people of all ages. ...

Who would have thought?

sPower is the company behind the Seneca Wind project that wants to build 85 wind turbines over 600 feet tall in Seneca County. As you may have heard, there are a great many people opposed to this happening, for a myriad of reasons. A professional poll done a couple months ago revealed that 3 ...
