Letters to the Press

A friendly place to live

To the editor:After two rain-filled days, the sun shone on Elmore on Saturday, May 6 during the first Explore Elmore Days. The main street was shut off so people could enjoy the various things set up for them to enjoy, and the businesses went all out to show people a wonderful day. Elmore is a child-friendly place, and there were many families enjoying the day with children in strollers or walking hand-in-hand with their parents.

Keep letter carriers safe

 To the editor: In April, the U.S. Postal Service promoted National Dog Bite Prevention Week. I am writing to ask postal customers to help make this “National Dog Bite Prevention Year.”  Pet owners’ efforts are critical when you consider the number of Postal Service employees attacked by dogs last year reached 6,755 – more than 200 higher than the year before. Within the Gibsonburg Post Office delivery area,  there have been five dog attacks since the beginning of the fiscal year.

A sell out?  

To the editor: After reading the April 24 issue of The Press, (Township offered cash to vacate road) I thought to myself, “Here we go again.”  The way the story is written, to me it looks like there may be a conflict of interest on Ken Gilsdorf’s part. He is a retired CSX employee and now a Lake Township trustee leaning toward the township to profit by a measly $25,000 to sell us out to CSX so that they can close down Walbridge Road.  Why not? There are just a few of us on this side of the tracks anyway. I wonder if he has thought of the possibility of selling us off to Perrysburg Township which is right across the road so Lake Township doesn’t have to maintain the roads here either?
