We must be proactive with support for Issue 2

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Editor: There continues to be a belief with some livestock farmers in Ohio that no one can or will regulate animal care in the state.

I am voting no on Issue Two

Monday, October 5, 2009

Editor: Issue Two is the attempt by the Ohio Farm Bureau to negate the efforts of HSUS on behalf of the animals being raised on the industrial livestock farms in Ohio. Being a neighbor of one of Park Farms’ grow out sites and also being a Farm Bureau member, and having called the plight of […]

Cap and trade is a bad idea

Monday, October 5, 2009

Editor: In regard to your Oct. 1 column, we agree that cap and trade is a BAD IDEA for Ohio AND farmers !! South Central Power has told its customers that if cap and trade passes the AVERAGE bill per customer will go UP a WHOPPING $1,800 a year!! That alone is enough to scare […]

Editor: As a former Fairfield Township trustee who served for 32 years and now retired, I am still greatly concerned for the people I worked for as a public servant. I am going to share what I believe is in the best interest of the residents. 1. I do not want a township handed over […]

Keep your farm decisions in your hands

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Editor: Every morning I wake up, this country of ours seems a little more unrecognizable. The government seems to have its hand in just about everything and we stand by and let it happen. Now it seems that our livestock industry needs some sort of guidelines for the care of our own animals. Guidelines to […]

What are parents — and others– really afraid of?

Monday, September 21, 2009

Editor: In Editor Susan Crowell’s Sept. 9 column, “Obama school speech furor: You can tell it was a slow news day,” you dismissed as unwarranted the criticism of allowing the speech to be broadcast in classrooms all across America to children starting at 5. One of the spins produced by the White House press spokesman […]

Looks like the taxpayer gets the short end of the stick again

Monday, August 10, 2009

Editor: I wonder how the 330 people in Richland County who own property in the Muskingum Watershed District that had to pay the assessment fee on their property that was supposed to be used to help rebuild dams and maintenance for the lakes feel now that $400,000 of the money went to pay raises. You […]

Don’t miss the chance for broadband in southern Ohio

Friday, June 26, 2009

Editor: Like many of your readers I live in the countryside, out of reach of modern broadband and barely in range of cellular service. I, for one, would like to see that situation improved. The problem is that the population and income densities where I live are just too low for the major telecom companies […]
