To the editor: Re: Union leaders smell a rat in Marina District cleanup.

It’s an interesting story but there’s more to it. According to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 26.3 percent of Ohio construction workers are union members.

What are these guys saying - that almost three-quarters of the construction workers in the state shouldn’t be allowed to work on the job because they aren’t union?

To the editor: The members of the 95th Infantry Division Assn. will not soon forget their 59th reunion in Toledo, held July 31-Aug. 3.

It was our first reunion there and the hospitality expressed by all we met added to the good feelings we WWII veterans experience at our annual meetings.

To the editor: College presidents from about 100 of the nation's most popular universities, including The Ohio State University, are calling on lawmakers to consider lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18, suggesting that current laws actually encourage dangerous binge drinking on college campuses.
