To the editor: Three weeks ago, three beautiful kittens were abandoned at the Oregon Senior Center. A couple women looked into the kittens’ pretty eyes and their hearts went out to the kittens. They returned to the center with food and fed the kittens. The next afternoon, they were told the kittens were dead.
The first kitten died when it encountered a German Shepherd. The second followed a lady walking along Bayshore Road where it was run over by a car. The third kitten tried to cross Stadium Road and was hit by a car. Horrible, huh?
The Humane Society is overwhelmed with unwanted pets. Toledo dog lovers are protesting that the dog warden is killing too many dogs. They are barking up the wrong tree. They should get after pet owners who fail to get their pets spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted kittens and puppies.
To the editor: We are all so lucky that every couple of years we witness the great American pastime of running for office. So very fortunate we are that when this takes place, we actually get to see these folks at our front doors. They shake our hands, kiss our babies, pet our dogs and pretend to really care about what we think about the things that control our cities.
The rest of the days after election, for the following few years, we have no contact with them at all. Wow.
Maybe, just maybe, once in awhile, they could call us and ask our opinion on items that could be important to us concerning public policy.
Don’t they work for us? Don’t we pay the tax that makes up their paychecks. I can’t wait until the next happy days come again.
