Letters to the Press

Vote no on Issue 1

        The Seneca County Opiate Task Force firmly opposes the proposed Ohio Issue 1, Neighborhood Safety, Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Amendment on the November’s ballot.

        This constitutional amendment would absolutely make Ohio an attraction hub for drug dealers, diminish the effective treatment efforts in the local courts, overcrowd the local municipal court with misdemeanor cases, and put the ones who break the law ahead of the rehabilitation and well-being of innocent victims or drug addicted individuals.

Success defined

To the editor: What is the meaning of success? Such a philosophical question hits real life when a family of moderate income must make choices to define its purpose beyond that of a price tag.

        Having attended several recent funerals, I am reminded that an investment portfolio and quality of kitchen cabinets rarely enters the discussion. Our true definition of success is whether or not the world is a better place for our having been here. Therefore, it seems that caring for those less fortunate, welcoming those from around the world who have faced horrors, protecting the planet for future generations, teaching and modeling honesty and integrity, and providing a beacon of hope represent a life well-lived.

Election policy

        The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions. In order to provide for fair comment, The Press will have the following policy covering election letters to the editor:

        The last issue for letters regarding the Nov. 6 election will be the second issue (Oct. 29.) before the election. No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (Nov. 5) to the election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related matters appearing in the Oct. 29 issue of the paper.

        No new political information can be introduced in the issue immediately before the election. This is to prevent inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.

        Letters are limited to ballot issues. The Press will not print letters about candidates’ races after the Oct. 8 issue.

        Letters should be no more than 350 words and include a phone number and address for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be printed. The deadline is Wednesday, Noon. Send to The Editor, c/o The Press, Box 169, Millbury, OH 43447 or e-mail to news@presspublications.com.
