Letter: Presidential transition needed to protect America

The election is over, and President Trump lost

Icon viewers:
President Trump is trying to steal the election.

He's making false claims of fraud and refusing to help the transition to President-Elect Biden. That transition process should include briefings for President-Elect Biden  on national security and on the federal response to the pandemic, among other issues. President Trump is blocking those briefings.

The losers here are the American people.

Letter: School should open a second lane to drop off students

Icon viewers:
I was hoping someone would publicly address the dropoff situation going on at the Ada school. It was a good idea, but wasn't researched enough. The school didn't take into consideration, that there were three lanes of vehicles dropping off students, in the front of the school.

Now, all lanes have been condensed into one long lane, with a minimum of an eight-minute wait to get students to their classes. The school just announced to students that tardiness, due to the dropoff restrictions will no longer be excused.

Letter: Vote Jennifer and John for Ohio Supreme Court

Icon viewers: 
For non-lawyers, it can be hard to excited about the law. But I'm tremendously excited about two candidates for Ohio Supreme Court, on the ballot November 3.

These candidates are Judge Jennifer Brunner and Judge John O'Donnell (each running for a separate seat). They bring an amazing wealth of experience and knowledge to the important job of Ohio Supreme Court Justice.

Even more than that, they bring a sense of fairness, compassion, and concern
for the State of Ohio. I urge everyone to vote to Judge Brunner and Judge
O'Donnell (Jennifer and John) for Ohio Supreme Court.

Letter: Sad and somewhat angered that Ada athletics have gotten to this point

What we are experiencing is a systemic issue that has to be addressed

Icon viewers:
The news this week of the resignation of Coach White has prompted me to write this letter. I am sad and somewhat angered that Ada athletics have gotten to this point.  

My family, in one way or another, has been involved in Ada athletics since the late 1970s.  This has included myself, my siblings, my children, nieces and nephews and now my grandchildren. Our family has participated in football, basketball, baseball, tennis, soccer, volleyball, softball, track, cheerleading and even a bit of coaching at Ada.  

So it is easy to see and say that we care a great deal about Ada athletics.

Letter: A big thank to all those who made summer a little more like a “normal” summer with the pool being open

Icon viewers: 
I just want to send out a big thank to all those who made summer a little more like a “normal” summer with the Ada swimming pool being open!

A big thank you to the Ada Village Council for having the courage to say “yes!” to having the pool open; knowing it was a big risk, knowing it was going to take a lot of work to get the pool ready, and knowing there was not much money to be made from this (if any).

A big thank you to the Village administration for all their work in preparing the pool. The entrance and exit set-up were both safe and smooth, following all the protocols necessary. Well designed!
