Letters to the Editor

You stopped “big wind”

Congratulations! You did it, you stopped them. You stopped what you consider to be an invasion of Seneca County by “big wind” and halted what you saw as a plan to take over the county by big industry. What now? You’d probably say that you’d go back to your normal lives and that in ...

Our Country Under God

I see by the Saturday paper we still have some liberals who have not gotten over the choice of a Republican in the last Presidential election. They are upset that the 35 million spent to get something on Trump failed. They will never accept the results. They are so upset they lost control of ...

Sunny Farms and Attorney General’s agreement

It is with certainty that the consent agreement that was made between the Attorney General of Ohio and Sunny Farms Landfill came as no surprise to anybody who lives within a 10 mile radius of ground zero. The absolute intention of this so called agreement was much less focused on protecting the ...

Trump for Our Future

I was reading in the paper today, another Democrat is mad at Trump. People do not realize that the condition of our country that has been run by liberals for 8 years before Trump is a real mess. It takes tough talk and tough decisions to correct the problems caused by the last ...

Thoughts from an Old Fashioned Conservative

Well, here we go again. We’ll hear the discussion every day; day in and day out. And they will be important discussions worth listening to. Because of the number of killings with guns, the discussions will be about gun control. Do we really need to enforce gun control and will it help or will ...

Why the “Shock and Awe”?

In the aftermath of the mosr recent shootings in El Paso, Texas and right here in our state of Ohio in Dayton, why is there such a “Shock and Awe” associated with these tragedies??? As a nation we’ve grown cold, heartless and uncaring since we’ve sat quietly by and “accepted” the ...

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 ...
