Letters to the Editor

Locked doors, open borders

It seems contradictive; everyone opposed to the border wall will go home into their homes and close the door. Most lock their doors for security. They will not let anyone enter unless they know them or give good reason to enter. But these same individuals want open borders and don’t care who ...

Make the right choice

I am writing this letter in response to the Seneca County Board of Health public meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday on the Tiffin University campus – Franks Hall / Chisholm Auditorium. For those who may not be aware, our county’s health board will be voting on whether or not to renew the license ...

Thanks for the gift

The residents and staff of St. Francis Senior Ministries would like to sincerely thank those in Tiffin and the surrounding communities who purchased balloons for Valentine’s Day from the Tiffin Kroger store to be donated to St. Francis Home and Friedman Village at St. Francis. Your generosity ...

Action necessary

To: Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Director Stevenson: As state representatives of Seneca County, and as attendees at the Sunny Farms community meeting held in Tiffin on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, we wish to offer feedback. We believe that the landfill smell is a very real ...

Send souvenirs

Dear people of the great state of Ohio, Greetings! My name is Brenda G. and I am a firth-grade student at Salida Elementary school in Salida, California. We live in the central valley located east of San Francisco. This year, we are to each complete a state project. I picked Ohio! I am asking ...

Diamond essence

February has a host of holidays among which we especially celebrate: Chinese New Year, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday and Black History Month. Each one of these special days/months of celebration and remembrance opens our appreciation of each ...

Immigration vs. abortion

When I think about what is happening in our country, I am glad I am as old as I am. I feel sorry for future Americans. When a political party would rather let in immigrants with no limits and promote abortion, you say why? I think they want mature immigrants in who can vote now, who will keep ...

Wind power just doesn’t add up

There has been a lot of rhetoric coming out of Washington, D.C., and California lately about transforming our electrical power sources to 100-percent renewable energy. We also have heard local comments about replacing the output of Davis-Besse nuclear power plant with wind energy. Both comments ...

Wind turbine misconceptions

In a recent A-T article about wind turbines, Gary Baldosser was quoted at some length describing how turbines work to provide power. Unfortunately, his description left some hefty misconceptions in the minds of readers who are unfamiliar with the subject. When Baldosser states that wind ...

No on DORA

I have been watching the newspaper, hoping to see more letters against the downtown outdoor refreshment area, but unfortunately, there have not been any. Yet, every person I talk to is against it. At the second reading, again, there were business owners pushing for it. I truly cannot see how ...

Abortion bill

I hope you were totally dismayed at Virginia’s state delegate, Kathy Tran, to propose a bill to kill a baby after it is born. This is the cause Democratic Socialists politicians are taking. For a long time, the Democratic Party has been the party of death. This is just one of the many ...

Is our downtown Tiffin success for naught?

Last weekend, The A-T and another publication heralded the recognition of downtown Tiffin for the third year in a row as a “National Main Street Community.” This is for good reason. This prestigious distinction is bestowed on a select group of communities by Heritage Ohio because of their ...

A discussion of our argumentive state

“Don’t trade your authenticity for approval.” - unknown Right on, Ron. Paul! You sure did hit the nail on the head with that answer! Paul seems to be a man who doesn’t waste words. I may not agree with everything he says, but I certainly do with his answer to a question he was ...

Is it criminal?

The following is an open letter that is being submitted to the Seneca County Health Department and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. First allow me to preface my query. As anyone who lives in or near Fostoria certainly knows, Sunny Farms Landfill has had a grotesque impact upon local ...

Professing concern

The A-T’s fourth installment in a series about building the wind farms addressed more pros and cons. The problem is, if the pros win and the windfarms are built, what do we do about the cons and their legitimate concerns? Ronald Williams, Fostoria

Warm thoughts

There are many things to be thankful for during this recent arctic blast and winter weather. Good planning from our government entities allowed our libraries, community and senior citizen centers across Ohio to be safe havens from the bitter cold. Our charitable organizations and churches ...

Wind farm OPSB meeting

Just a reminder to everyone of the Ohio Power Siting Board meeting April 23. It is important that all who are concerned have a chance to voice or submit their input about the wind farms proposed for our area. It will be at the Marion Center, 235 Miami St., on the Tiffin University campus from 3 ...

Critical of hypocrites

The darkness spreads and grows stronger as more and more people turn away from the light. What am I talking about? I am talking about the hypocrites who say they are Christians and yet they either support or do nothing about the crimes that are committed against heaven such as abortion or gay ...

The answer isn’t blowing in the wind

The new Budweiser commercial shown during the Super Bowl claimed it is powered by 100-percent renewables, which is a fallacy. Did you notice there weren’t any homes shown near the turbines? The reality is much different for us here in Seneca County. We have said numerous times previously ...

What is life?

In the past few weeks we have had several states in our country pass or consider some of the most barbaric abortion laws to date. At this point, they are only talking about the most innocent of lives, the unborn and newly born. These proposals and laws on abortion and infanticide are horrific, ...
