Letters to the Editor

The beginning of the Nuclear Age

74 years ago, Aug. 6 and 9, the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, thus began the Nuclear Age. As a result of these bombings, it is estimated over 135,000 people died in Nagasaki and more than 64,000 in Nagasaki in the subsequent months and years. Many more have ...

A View from the Left

The ultra-right letters to the A-T have been flying fast and furious over the past few months. Some of them are well thought out (Zirgers) while others are ugly rants (Somers). I would like to take a moment to address those writings. First, Mr. Somers, I am not A “USA hating Democrat”. I ...

Not My President?

After reading Paul Pospisill’s letter (Fourth of July Trump Show 7/17) I do have to agree that 2.5 million could have been better spent. But let’s face it what president hasn’t wasted money one time or another. I remember Obama giving Iran, a country that celebrates Death to America Day ...

Support Your Police/Firemen

What is happening, this is not the country I have grown up in. Complete disrespect for our officers of the law. This can not continue. This will lead to complete chaos in this country. Where do these people come from? If the safety of everyone is no longer secure in this country where will we ...

Russian meddling

The editorial headline “Bottom Line: Russia didn’t interfere” does not conform to your statement “Kremlin hackers made numerous attempts.” Some estimates count 28 million attempts. You conclude they didn’t succeed. I hope you’re right. Who would believe a Facebook post that ...

Donations needed for local Dolly Parton books for kids program

Twenty years ago, Dolly Parton began the Imagination Library in Sevier County, Tennessee where she was raised by her father who could not read. Her mission to eradicate illiteracy, has since spread to involve the entire US as well as Canada, UK, and Australia. Her program has been responsible ...

How can Trump love US, talk the way he does?

Over the past several months, numerous letters have supported President Trump. With the exception of Paul Pospisill’s recent submission, there have been no letters expressing a different view. I would like to change that dynamic. I find it extremely difficult to believe that Trump loves our ...

Signing wind turbine setback waivers not a good idea

Many of the over 125 planned wind turbine locations in the projects proposed for our area are too close to neighbors to be legal. To remedy the situation the wind companies are trying to get those neighbors to sign “setback waivers” aka “good neighbor agreements” to allow the turbines ...

Sunny Farms agreement made

It is good to learn that a consent agreement has been reached between Sunny Farm Landfill and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency in the amount of $1.71 million. These civil penalties address alleged violations of water pollution, solid waste and air pollution control laws. An additional ...

A Huge Thank You to the Gardeners

What a wonderful afternoon it was to have the pleasure of touring eleven Tiffin gardens on June 30 that are truly “Hidden Gems”! Each one was unique and filled with ideas and creativity. There is no way to thank the gardens owners enough. They worked tirelessly and generously shared their ...

Helping veterans in Seneca County

I read with great interest the article in the July 27th issue of the A-T, entitled, “Retreats Help First Responders Regroup From Stress.” Kudos to retired police officers Mike Yinger and Michael Pavolino who founded the nonprofit The Bridge in 2018 to help first responders deal with the ...

Letter, July 29

PRINT THE TRUTH AND FACTS I see the Press following the “Squad” the USA hating Democrats like puppy dogs. This is so insane that the press has lowered itself to this. The “Squad” would be nothing without the puppy dog press. Why won’t the Press follow people with positive ideas. ...

Parents day is this weekend

“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.”- Jane Dee Hull July 28th of this year has been established as Parent’s Day where we recognize those who have one of the most important jobs there is! This is not an ...

In reply to a letter from Paul

In reply to Paul Pospisill: We would first-off like to thank Mr. Pospisill for his service in the U.S. Navy! As and Air Force veteran of the ‘60s I remember swearing to an oath of service, to my country, which is defined as a geographical area with certified boarders. I proudly served at the ...

Public support needed

The Ohio Sate Legislative Board needs the public’s support to reach out to Ohio Republican Congressmen: David Joyce, Troy Balderson, Bill Johnson and Michael Turner to follow the example set by fellow Ohio Republican Congressman Steve Stivers in supporting and Co-sponsoring H.R. 1748 — The ...

Read the Mueller Report

Read the Mueller Report As soon as the Mueller Report became available, I downloaded it on my computer. It took a few evenings to read all 448 pages. I thought it was important for me to read the actual report for myself, rather than listen to or read about someone else’s characterization ...

The Seneca Wind Public Hearing is scheduled for 3 – 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 23. The event is to be at Marion Center, 235 Miami St., Tiffin University campus. This public hearing is a standard component of Ohio Power Siting Board’s process of reviewing applications for the construction of major ...

Use Good Judgment

I have been watching the news about about the demise of the Air Max 1 USA shoe by Nike. I think they had a terrific idea. That shoe could have been a million dollar seller. What I don’t understand is why a great company like Nike would listen to a loser like Kaepernick. Have the management ...

New development in Tiffin: Good and Bad

As a life long citizen of Tiffin area I have seen good and bad decisions made regarding new development. The Architecture Review Board has a big decision to allow or not allow a single structure for removal. Allowing the removal of the Kear’s Speed Shop building would allow for connecting two ...

Recently it was reported by TiffinOhio.net that Ohio Representative Bill Reineke accepted contributions from First Energy of Ohio in the amount of $1,500 prior to his voting for HB6, the proposed legislation that would provide up to $2 Billion in subsidies to First Energy and several other ...
