Can we learn from others?

We see countless stories about the current economy and the destruction of people’s lives and livelihoods. Heck, we don’t need to watch the news or read about. Some of you, your neighbors or someone you know is going through it.

We need to see more of how some people, communities, groups, whoever, are making it. Some are making it.

We need to get up and do something. We are sitting around complaining and waiting and whining for someone to fix our problems for us while we run around in circles with our hands in the air.

 
On the Other Hand — All full up on snow

This past week has brought some heavenly and not-quite-so heavenly weather. Warm enough one day to forgo the winter coat and cold enough the next few to see more than six inches of rain, snow and sleet (of course all in one event).

I know we didn’t get as much as some but I feel secure in saying I think most of us have had enough. Next winter, when someone hears me whining about where’s the snow, smack me a good one.

DEAR EDITOR:

I, as a citizen of Delphos, have decided to support the income tax increase. After reading and listening to various discussions on the subject, I feel this is the only sensible alternative.

 
An opportunity to lead

ROB PORTMAN

 

A presidential budget is many things. It is a chance for the President to declare his priorities, to highlight his initiatives, and to offer reforms of how our government does business. But most importantly of all, it is a chance for the President to lead on the fiscal issues of the day. We certainly need that leadership now.

Negative vs. Positive regarding Dollar General

 

DEAR EDITOR:

There have been several newspaper articles regarding the possibility of Dollar General locating in our Ottoville community.

All the reading has been from a negative point of view, something which seldom pleases the residents or is a good reflection left on the town we call home.

As the old saying goes, “there are always two sides to every story.”

Perhaps equal time should be given where citizens can openly express their positive views and desires before the administration makes the final decision. Would it be feasible to conduct a public town hall meeting?

Golden opportunities seldom come along to villages with a population of less than 1,000.

Many established businesses here could benefit with the additional amount of people patronizing Dollar General and at the same time, stop elsewhere throughout the retained business district for miscellaneous purchases.

This new adventure could open the door to commercial growth for all of us to benefit now and in the future.

Closing the door on this proposed commercial project, while taking into consideration the site across the road (State Route 224) of the K-12 school, the positives outweigh the negative points of concern.

Hopefully as our governing officials preside and after all matters have been explored, it is decided to grab the brass ring — before it slips away.

Sincerely,

Jerry Hohlbein

Ottoville
