Stick to the fax

May 7, 2013 - Rob Weaver
We received a unique unsolicited solicitation at the office today. It was an offer to help us reduce the number of unsolicited solicitations we receive.

“You have the right to ‘opt-out’ from receiving future faxes,” it states. “Many people do not take the time to ‘opt-out’ or try to improperly which results in continued unwanted faxes. “We offer our assistance for FREE! “We do not sell goods or services and we will never contact you. “PLEASE FAX YOUR UNWANTED FAXES TO US, WE WILL CONTACT THE SENDER AND HAVE YOUR FAX NUMBER PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM THEIR FAX LIST. “THE SENDER HAS THIRTY (30) DAYS TO COMPLY. Please make sure your fax number is on the fax you send to us. We need this information when we opt-out for you.”

I wonder how many recipients send that fax back to the sender.

I wonder if the sender tells itself to opt out.

I can pass along some useful information from today's Seneca County Community Council meeting.

Remember the Habitat for Humanity home at 252 Third Ave. that was subject of the “blitz build” last July, when the structure was raised in 16 hours? The rest of the house is nearing completion and should be ready to become a home in June or July.

Locally grown produce isn't all that is available at the farmers' markets planned for downtown Tiffin this summer. The Tiffin Lions Club plans to sell brooms at the market, and the ice cream parlor at Elmwood at the Shawhan is to be open during the events. The parlor also is to be open Wednesday afternoons beginning in June. Remember when downtown businesses used to close Wednesday afternoons?

Televisions and small appliances -- basically, anything that plugs into an outlet -- can be recycled 9 a.m.-noon Saturday at the Seneca County Fairgrounds. There is no charge for small electronics (CD or DVD players, stereos, game systems, etc.) TV sets with a screen size of 24 inches or less cost $2 to dispose of, while large TVs cost $3 and console units and projection TVs cost $5 to drop off.

I wonder how many people will get rid of fax machines. ...
