support vital

        To the editor: The Ottawa County Wreath Committee would like to first thank the community for their support in bringing Wreaths Across America to the veteran graves in the Marblehead, Elmore, and Port Clinton/Catawba area cemeteries in December 2016 and 2017.

        With your help, we placed more than 3,900 Christmas wreaths at the final resting place of our Ottawa County heroes.

        Our mission is to cover a minimum of one location each year, based on funding received. In order to complete our long-term mission to cover all of Ottawa County, we continue to rely on the support of all donors past and present.

Protect pets from

outdoor dangers

        To the editor: Zoey, an 8-pound dog who was reportedly snatched from her guardian’s fenced yard in Pennsylvania by an eagle and found four miles away – whimpering, wounded, limping and covered in icicles – is lucky to be alive. She is also a reminder that it’s never safe to leave animals outdoors unattended, even for “just a minute.”

        Hungry wildlife is just one of the countless dangers that dogs and cats face outdoors. Many animals are painfully killed after being hit by cars, ingesting poison, contracting fatal diseases, being abused by cruel people and suffering other horrific fates.

        Our animal companions are as vulnerable as toddlers in the great outdoors. It’s imperative to keep them safe by keeping them indoors, making sure they are microchipped and wearing collars with current identification tags, and allowing them outdoors only on a leash and harness or in a fenced area, under our constant supervision.

No accountability

To the editor: Referring to the article in the Jan. 15 edition of The Press (Voter roll case is personal for mayor); maybe I am missing an important point.

        If I am not, it sounds to me like citizens should be able to show up to vote on a whim regardless of their former voting record.
