Letters to the Press

Proud of Clay

To the editor: I was impressed to read the Clay High School graduation rate is 93 percent and that 53 percent go on to college.

        Oregon has 3,710 students and the district has had many achievements.

Poppy Days thank-you

        To the editor: Troy-Webster American Legion Auxiliary Unit #240 would like to thank everyone who donated to the poppy program this past weekend in Luckey and Perrysburg.

        The courtesy and thank-you extended to our veterans who helped offer poppies was amazing. Our Legionnaires were all in their 80s and enjoyed your conversation and compliments.

        We would also like to extend our thanks and appreciation to The State Bank and the Post Office in Luckey, and Walt Churchill’s Market and Walmart in Perrysburg. Without your support for our veterans, it would not have been possible.

        All money collected from the poppy campaign goes directly to veterans and their families through the Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, and Children and Youth Programs of the Auxiliary. Any expenses (poppies, cans and postage) are paid out of the general fund.

        One-hundred percent of poppy dollars go back to the veterans.

Becky Dippman, President

Troy-Webster American Legion Auxiliary Unit #240


Pet precautions

To the editor: At least five animals have died already this year due to heat-related reasons—and these are just the deaths that have been reported. Most aren’t. Please don’t let your animal companions become statistics—take these precautions to protect them.

        Never leave animals or children in parked vehicles. On a 75-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to 104 degrees in 20 minutes, and on a 90-degree day, it can reach 119 degrees in the same amount of time. Parking in the shade, leaving the windows partially open, and/or leaving water in the vehicle will not keep vehicles cool enough to be safe.

Do you think a wall along our Mexican border is needed?
