LETTER: Farmers will do a better job than can-kicking politicians

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Editor: Cowboys and business people can clearly explain how the “cow ate the cabbage.” They can explain how she ate it, and where she spit the seeds. Today our elite elected ones can’t generate an original or conclusive sentence. Listen to them defend themselves, interviews, press conferences. Try to understand what — if anything — […]

Reader: Farm Bureau members did the right thing

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Editor: Interesting story by Alan Guebert (Did Mississippi Farm Bureau railroad state director, Nov. 29) regarding Mississippi farm bureau state director Fred Stokes and his Kansas City news conference.

Community needs to unite to stop animal abuse

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Editor Why is it that in our society, when abuse occurs, the first thought that comes to mind is “What did the victim do to deserve it?” In the case of rape, we ask what was the woman wearing? In the case of child abuse, what did the child do to push the adult to […]

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Our children will be saddled with debt incurred from all […]

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Editor: Now that the registration of animals has passed, the danger of this bill has started. One group — the ODNR — stated you don’t have to register certain animals. ODA stated yes you do. Grouping of animals that are not listed in SB 310 are added. Yet if any animals are added it is […]

Reader: Religion and government should be kept separate

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Editor: While I have my own personal disputes with Obamacare, I believe it is imperative to keep religion out of government matters ( “Administration ignores our First Amendment rights, Oct. 25).

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Reader says SB310 doesn’t protect animals or the public

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Editor: One year after the tragic incident of Zanesville, I would say that Ohio has not taken a step forward but a giant step backwards. Legislation forced upon Ohio citizens was neither for the benefit of the public nor the animals. SB310 does not protect the public nor will it stop another incident from occurring. […]

Letter: Under-educated doesn’t mean un-trainable

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Yes, education and learning is important, if for no other reason but to keep the mind from becoming stale and one-sided. But education should not be a criteria for not getting a job. What is […]

S.B. 130 isn’t perfect, but a start to animal welfare

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Editor: Ohio is one of the least protective states regarding animal care. Why does the Senate in Ohio refuse to realize this? It is a known fact cruelty to children and cruelty to animals go hand in hand. Is this really the reputation Ohio wants to promote to the rest of the country? Many years […]
