Letter: Offering a simple tutorial on how inflation works

0

What an around-the-mulberry bush explanation for inflation. It doesn’t matter which party is in the White House.

Letter: Seniors, demand politicians help out about drug costs

0

Why is it that no politician tries to get the senior vote? Do we not count?

Letter: Cable Road study requires real imagination this time

0

A recent front-page story Jan. 27 was on funding for a “railroad crossing study” involving Cable Road. The article reported that a typical study would look at several options — a no-build option, a grade separation (overpass or underpass) and, to quote public works director Kirk Niemeyer, “every possibility that you can come up with within a geographical area.” Unfortunately, too many studies such as this seem to go for naught, with the no-build option often coming as the result.

Letter: UAW chose to back the wrong candidate this presidential election

0

Wonderful, the UAW has just endorsed President Joe Biden, a man whose policies will cut 40% of their jobs when the auto industries switch over to electric vehicles. Actually, it will most likely cost even more jobs, as the American public does not want and will not buy a vehicle which will leave them stranded with a discharged battery that can take hours to recharge.

Letter: McColley, Ohio Senate shouldn’t override veto on local control

0

As a grandparent, I am concerned about Big Tobacco’s enormous toll on our state. To reduce tobacco’s negative impact on Ohio, I am calling on Sen. Rob McColley not to support a vote to override Gov. DeWine’s veto of legislation that will limit local control.

Letter: New pool great, but what happened to Schoonover?

0

We have been without a pool since 2019. The new Lima Aquatic Center is not set to be complete till 2025; we will be five full years without a pool.

Letter: Elida’s transgender bathroom policy bound to hurt school

0

It did not surprise me to see that the new Elida school board members introduced a change to the bathroom policy, as that is what they campaigned on to win the seats to the board. Adding it as a “last-minute addition” was very clever, which surprised the other members who asked that it be tabled until the next meeting.

0

I would like to thank the person that shoveled my walk.
