As we celebrate Earth Day, let’s preserve Little Beaver Creek

To the editor: No matter what any of us are going through right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is comforting to know that just about anywhere across Ohio we can still get outside and enjoy this beautiful time of year. It is a time of renewal for most of us spiritually, as well as a ...

Food bank appreciates support of governor

To the editor: Over the past month, Gov. Mike DeWine and his administration have repeatedly responded to calls for help from food banks throughout the state. In March, Gov. DeWine deployed Ohio National Guard members when we made a plea for emergency support. Locally, Second Harvest Food ...

To the editor: I watch these overworked truck drivers bringing in supplies on the turnpike who can’t get any hot meals. They should be able to get something good to eat. These women and men should be fed. They make them pay high gas prices and they can’t use their semis in the food ...
