Portman praised by Delphos resident PDF Print

To the editor,

I would like to thank Ohio’s Senator Rob Portman for his stand against renewal of the Production Tax Credit. Over the past 20 years, American taxpayers have seen little return from the forced investment in wind energy. This handout consistently fails to deliver on its promise of long-term job creation, economic activity, and affordability. It promotes government favoritism in the energy marketplace, threatens the reliability of the energy grid and another two year extension will cost the taxpayers over $12 billion. Recent reports and studies have also shown that subsidizing wind energy results in higher electricity costs for American families.

So thank you Ohio’s Senator Rob Portman for opposing the renewal of the PTC. American taxpayers deserve a portfolio of energy solutions that are economically viable, not those that have to be propped up by carve outs in the tax code.

Stamp Out Hunger supporters thanked PDF Print

To the editor,

On Saturday, May 10, the National Association of Letter Carriers held their annual nationwide “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive.

Letter carriers at the Delphos Post Office participated as well and we are happy to announce that this years drive brought in a total of 2,490 pounds of non-perishable food!

All the food was evenly distributed between the St. Vincent DePaul Society and the Interfaith Thrift Shop, both located here in Delphos. This will really help stock their shelves as the summer approaches.

A task such as this could not be accomplished without the help of others so at this time we would like to thank WDOH and The Delphos Herald for their advertising, the businesses that helped us promote this food drive, our local management; Marilyn Mulholland and Lori Brenner for their cooperation, the rural carriers who worked that day; Lisa Rahrig, Donna Moreo, Louise Laudick and Kim Feathers, for collecting on their routes, our clerks working that day; Lisa Perry and Julia Kleman for taking care of the food collected in the lobby and over the counter; and special thanks to Janet Taff for coming in on her vacation and separating the cans and the boxed donations.

To the citizens of Delphos

I want to sincerely thank everyone who supported the ¼% income tax issue on May 6. The monies raised will be used to support our parks, and in turn, will free up monies for other essential services for our city.

The passing of the income tax and the good news we received on the Lakeview Farms expansion means the city finances will improve but it will take some time to get us back to where we need to be.

I want to personally thank the Delphos police officer that happened to be in the right place at the right time.

Recently, my granddaughter, Anna Fitch, and two of her girlfriends were taking a bike ride along Pierce Street here in Delphos. As they were riding, they came upon a baby owl lying on the sidewalk. They went over to the owl and it opened its eyes and appeared to be hurt. They didn’t know what to do. About that time, a Delphos police officer drove by and the girls flagged the officer down. He stopped his car and got out to see what was wrong. The girls explained the owl looked hurt and the officer told them it looks like the owl has a broken wing. He went over to his car, got a box out and picked up the owl, very carefully, and placed the owl in the box. He took the box, with the owl and put it in the police car. He assured the girls he would take care of the owl and drove away.

The annual Relay for Life Trivia Challenge saw a record number of teams participating this year. Congratulations to the three top finishing teams, who all generously donated their prize winnings back to the Relay For Life.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to them as well as to all of the supporters of this great annual event, and extend an invitation to those who’ve not participated in the past, to get a team together and come out next year and play.
