To the editor,

My 3-year-old daughter and I drove to a local drugstore Thursday evening to get medicine for my son and before we even got into the store, my daughter was asking if she could get a race car they have there. I had no idea what she was talking about but as soon as we got in the store, she was pointing to the race cars. Of course, I told her we weren’t there to buy a car and we went on our way.

After getting what we needed, there we stood in line waiting to check out right by the race cars. My daughter had taken two off the shelf and was rolling them on the floor playing her heart out. I told her to put them back and get out of the way of an older man pushing a cart up to the counter. He stopped her and asked if she likes cars. She said yes and then he asked her to see it.

Brothers appreciate coverage of building’s demolition PDF Print

To the editor,

My brother, Alfred Schmit, and I would like to thank The Delphos Herald for the excellent coverage given to the recent demolition of the former Schmit’s Market building at Second and Canal streets in Delphos.

Our father, Nicholas Schmit, was the former owner of the Schmit and Patton Grocery during the 1920s and 30s. Dad died in 1935 and left our mother with eight children. The grocery provided mother and her eight children with an income during The Great Depression and World War II.

Brothers Jerome and Alfred both served in the Army during the war. Jerome is now deceased but he was also a partner in the grocery.

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
Saturday, May 24, 2014 8:00 PM

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.
