Goodbye, Mr. Garry

Last Monday was a surreal day. Weird things happened: the ebola threat grew greater, the Wyandot County prosecutor ended his life, Commissioner Harden was back in the hospital, and our county treasurer died quite unexpectedly.Tim Garry… veteran, father, husband, retired C.P.A., newspaper publisher, and then county treasurer. Love him or not, he was a force to be reckoned with. I used to work for him and sometimes he made me crazy, but I really learned alot from him.

Taising taxes is not the solution

Dear Editor,From some of the letters to the editor you can tell some people are still drinking the Obama Kool-Aid and loving the bitter taste.It is plain dumb to think raising taxes is going to help anything other than giving Obama more money to spend on expensive vacations. For the people drinking the Kool-Aid, here is what happens when the business owner has to pay higher tax and health care cost he is forced to either cut number of employees or their ...

EMS needs to be held accountable

Dear Editor:This is just a short reply to the response to my original letter regarding the EMS contract/personnel.There were actually two responses but one was on-line and was so out-of-line that it does not deserve an inked response. However, the gentleman who responded in the paper I have a great deal of respect for. It was a well written response and you could tell it was heart felt; but, he gave the standard liberal soft-shoe response that tugs at yo...

You mean Aragorn, son of Arathorn?

When someone at the table asked if anyone was familiar with the actor Viggo Mortensen from “The Lord of the Rings” movies, I raised my hand enough just to get noticed, to answer his question, at our table of four.“Yes,” I said.What I also wanted to say was, “You mean Aragorn, son of Arathorn, heir to the throne of Gondor?”But I didn’t. It was clear who the geek at the table was without the further affirmation of my wei...

Don’t think “it can’t happen here”

It’s great to go home after a hard day at work, put up your feet, switch on the television and have dinner, isn’t it? That’s how a typical day goes for many of us here in the United States. Even those that are low-income usually have the basic comforts of life, a place to sleep and enough to eat.While Americans are watching sports and reality TV, playing video games, dining out, and throwing back a few brewskies, the world - and their own country - is changing. It...

Billionaire fossil fuel promoters ruin America workforce

To the Editor,I thought something was probably fishy when I saw the column in your Sept. 24 issue by someone from the Association for Mature American Citizens. As I suspected, it’s backed by the Koch Brothers, interested in stopping anything that helps ordinary Americans. The AMAC went after AARP, claiming it was a Communist/Democratic organization.This organization earned “[Liar, liar,] Pants on fire” ratings from PolitiFact for ads fu...

Fossil fuels vs renewable energy

Dear Editor,I write in regards to Mr. Johnson’s letter from the Taxpayers Protection Alliance in the September 3, 2014 newspaper, and other letters and articles of the sort that put a very negative name to alternative energy. The letter does give a very legitimate reason for rejecting efforts to reduce carbon emissions, as the average person does not have the money to pay for extra expenses on things such as gas. But I ask for you to consider the flip side of...
