Festival support

greatly appreciated

        To the editor: The 40th Annual Oak Harbor Apple Festival was held October 13-14, and what a great turnout.

        We had a beautiful weekend filled with food, family, fun and entertainment. When we say that the festival and all of the great activities would not be possible without the help of generous sponsors and volunteers, we truly mean this. From the village departments to the property owners to the volunteers and vendors, it really takes everyone working together to make our festival the success that it is. The Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the following for their contribution to this year’s festival:

        Candy Apple sponsors: Carroll Township, Croghan Colonial Bank, Crown Battery, Magruder Hospital, McDonald’s and the Village of Oak Harbor.

        Red Delicious sponsors Civilian Marksmanship Program, Commodore Perry Federal Credit Union, Community Markets, Dr. Molly Judge, Health Management Solutions, Lake Disposal Services, Lake Erie Shores & Islands, Lateral Gig, Materion, Oak Harbor BP, Oak Harbor Rotary Club, ProMedica Bay Park Hospital and US Bank.

       Basket Full of Apples: Blackberry Corners, Luckey Farmers, Radiant Windows & Remodeling and Varga Custom Concrete.

       Special thanks to Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools, Community Markets, Croghan Colonial Bank, Oak Harbor Hardware, Spangler Motors and US Bank for the use of their property.

       In addition to the above sponsors and supporters we would also like to thank everyone who volunteered their time to make this event a success.

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.
