Thanks for help with Safety week

On behalf of the students of Tiffin City Schools, we would like to thank the people who made our Safety Week project in September a success. The planning committee comprised of TCS administrators, the Tiffin Police Department and the Tiffin Fire Department developed a plan for implementation. ...

Delay and change

British Lord Acton is quoted as saying: "Power tends to corrupt. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."In early 2010, when the president introduced his plan for government-controlled health care, a plan that would usurp one-sixth of our national economy, President Barack Obama and his Democratic ...

Fight bullying with respect

Discussions and arguments abound about bullying. Is it just a part of growing up - or is it an abusive behavior that has serious consequences for those involved?Some students who are targeted by bullies report low self-esteem, depression, living in fear, poor academic achievement and emotional ...

Headstones would be wise use of funds

In the Wednesday, Sept. 25 article titled "Board learns about county debt" Commissioner Fred Zoeller asks for $12,500 to pay for a "study" that is being conducted for SR 53 and the board approves, but the board won't approve $400 more to complete the cemetery project that has been done by Boy ...

Remove dirty fuels from multiple-choice answers

Sen. Rob Portman promotes his bill, The Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness, in The Advertiser-Tribune of Sept. 25. I like much of what he says, but I hope the Senate will remove the flies from this ointment. One fly is his favoring "all the above" sources of energy, which includes ...

Say ‘no’ to Agenda 21

Sandusky County's Comprehensive Plan sounds OK at first glance, but a more thorough reading clearly shows this plan is straight out of the UN Agenda 21 master plan for every community in the USA as well as the world. When we accept grants from the EPA, HUD and other sources, this is your ...

The high cost of untreated mental illness

A typical morning in our communities has a bustle of activity as individuals prepare for work and school. Yet, beneath this activity are many individuals for whom contemplating even the next hour is difficult; these are the individuals living with a mental illness.This difficulty is not by ...

A long-lasting light bulb

My dear spouse and I purchased this 1911 wood-framed, two-story home, located at 335 S. Monroe St., Tiffin, in 1985. With the home came "the light bulb."The light bulb to which I refer was in the upstairs walk-in closet mounted on the ceiling in an old white ceramic socket connected to a small ...

Join the committee

I ran for the position of Seneca County commissioner for one purpose: to make a real difference in the lives of the people who reside and work in Seneca County. I have watched Seneca County officials evade difficult decisions, ignore "hot" topics and talk about ways to promote our county, but ...

Why no local screening?

Sept. 18, two other ladies and I from the Kiwanis Manor were privileged to attend the movie "A Strange Brand of Happy" by our local boy, Brad Wise. We thought the movie was very good. Tickets were free. My only issue was we had to go to Findlay to see it. It was worth the trip. My issue is why ...

Suspect mental illness or substance abuse? Take the right steps

While I have one more article on September being National Recovery Month, I want to let readers know North Central Ohio Educational Service Center is offering its facility to Community Action for Reduction of Substance Abuse coalition for its "Let's Talk" series. This event, Wednesday, is to ...

Yield the field

I have a child in the Tiffin Columbian Marching Band and attend most of the home games. After the last home-game win, I noticed something that I do not think was very respectful on the football team and coaches part. The band was on the field playing its victory song and the football team ran ...

Immigration policy in 148 words

Two weeks ago, I received a copy of a speech purportedly given by Russian President Vladimir Putin Feb. 4 before the Duma (Russian parliament). As with many items that come over the Internet, there were immediately numerous blogs decrying it, some claiming it was originally given by an official ...

Best story not talked about

I am writing about the best sports story of the year, not being talked about, the Hopewell-Loudon golf team. Yes, I know in a town where football is king, talking about a golf team may seem strange, but this is why I believe this story is important.It was not that long ago that this school's ...

Recognize signs, symptoms of emotional distress

I'm still on the September is National Recovery Month gig. We have plenty to share, so let's get to it.Mental illness and substance abuse disorders can occur separately or as a "co-occurring" disorder (both at the same time). Will you be able to recognize the signs - how would you know? The ...

Our nation was founded on Christian principles

It is painfully obvious that Stephanie Osborn is sadly inaccurate of the Bible's teachings when she quotes Old Testament laws and compares them to today's world. The Bible teaches us that with the coming of Jesus Christ, the old law was put away. However, we are also taught that the Old ...

Help sought for noble cause

The stewardship of a building - the former orphanage built in the '50s, which later became the juvenile home - was given to Pastor Tracy Elder, who will be using it for her chaplain ministries. She will house, counsel, teach skills and help downtrodden people find work in the community. It is ...

How would war in Syria advance our nation’s interests?

Do you remember how we became ensnared in the Vietnam War? The rationale behind our involvement was called the Gulf of Tonkin. President Lyndon Johnson claimed America had authority to attack North Vietnam because North Vietnamese torpedo boats attacked two American destroyers over two days in ...
