Senior support appreciated
To the editor: Each year for the past several years, Home Instead Senior Care has sponsored the “Be a Santa to a Senior” program, which helps provide Christmas gifts to seniors who would otherwise have nothing.
Since its inception, Home Instead has worked with Ottawa County Senior Resources’ Home Delivered Meal program to identify those seniors in need of some special Christmas cheer.
This year was no exception. Thanks to Home Instead Senior Care’s caring and loving staff and the communities of Ottawa County for their generous support of this program, more than 60 seniors were able to have a gift to open for this special holiday.
During this season of giving, Ottawa County Senior Resources is appreciative of all the care, love and support offered to our Ottawa County seniors by our local communities and caregiver programs like Home Instead Senior Care.

To the editor: In reference to the letter to the editor published in The Press about the resignation of Mike Donnelly from the position as Clay High School’s football coach, Mike was forced to resign from his coaching position. I’ve known the Donnellys ever since Mike’s marriage to Tracy, and they certainly are not having problems at home where Mike would need to devote more time to his family.
His children will go a long way in this world because of his and Tracy’s guidance. They will learn to respect others by the example Mike and Tracy have set. Mike loves his family and had so much love and respect for his team and players.
Where was the backbone of the school board members who didn’t step up to support Mike?
Knowing Mike, I’m sure he will excel in the future and become someone else’s coach. It’s Clay’s loss.
