Letters to the Editor

Children are depending on you

To the editor: Passing the upcoming Indian Creek Local School District bond issue is a matter of common sense. The 6.1-mill bond issue will generate funds to replace Indian Creek High School, Wintersville Elementary and renovate Hills Elementary, plus trigger the release of state funds for ...

Ruminski has the right stuff

To the editor: On May 8, Republicans in the 96th District have a choice between two candidates to challenge Jack Cera in the November general election for state representative. I attended the recent meet-the-candidates event hosted by the Jefferson County Federated Republican ...

Show that you value children

To the editor: There are some facts that have not been mentioned that I feel the voters of the Indian Creek Local School District should know. Did you know that at Wintersville Elementary, the old Buchanan building, the top floor reaches temperatures of more than 100 degrees in the warmer ...

Sprague right choice for auditor

To the editor: I was born and raised in Jefferson County and graduated from Springfield Local High School. Schools, military service and job movements have caused me to relocate several times, but I have resided in Findlay for the last 20 years. Findlay resident Robert Sprague is running ...

To the editor: Some random thoughts: ¯ Murderers, if raised in a violent environment, get pushed over the edge to commit the act of murder with no reason and no remorse. ¯ I think there is something to be said about beautiful women and handsome men. If the first word out of their mouth ...
