To the Editor: Writer thankful for God's gifts

God turned my worst day into my best day. On Dec. 23, 1966, the car I was driving was struck by a drunk driver. I lay unconscious on the front seat of my car. A great samaritan, who was driving the car behind me put his overcoat on me to keep the cold air off my lifeless body till the ambulance arrived. The ambulance took me to Wood County Hospital where my family doctor stitched the cut on the back of my head, made by the windshield of the '56 Ford I drove, which had no safety glass. My vital signs were very good, so my doctor said I was just asleep and sent me to St. Vincent's Hospital where I remained unconscious for six days, then semi-conscious for five more days.
On my 11th day, my spirit witnessed from above as my dad pushed my semi-conscious body, in a wheelchair to St. Vincent's sanctuary, up to a statue of the Virgin Mary. Then, instantaneously, my spirit re-entered my body and I was viewing the statue in a very peaceful roomful of sunlight from the skylight window in the ceiling above the statue. I felt great, after 11 days rest, then regaining my spirit in a beautiful sunlit chapel. What a comeback, thank God! It was nice to see things from above, as God does 24/7.

To the Editor: Haters will hate, but Orr is a good man

All of you Louis Orr haters out there can celebrate.
Orr will not return as head coach of the Bowling Green State University Falcons next year. His seven-year run is over.
Did he deserve to be fired? I guess his sub-500 record speaks for itself.
Coaching success is measured on wins and losses, championships and tournament bids.
What you can't measure is loyalty - to the school, program, coaches, players and their families. Louis Orr was a father figure to many players who didn't have one at home. He was there when nobody else cared.
Our daughter, Megan Centers, served as the director of basketball operations (DOBO) for Bowling Green the past five seasons. My wife, Jody, and I have followed the Falcons the last five years. I would bet we have seen more Falcon games this season than anybody not connected with the team. From Tampa to Ann Arbor and from Fort Wayne, Ind. to all points around the Mid-American Conference map, we didn't miss many games the last five seasons. And when we did, we were huddled around the radio to hear Todd Walker's entertaining call of the game.

To the Editor: Traditional marriage is God's law
Written by Mary Jo Thieman Bosch

Marriage between a man and woman is God's law, not man's law. Therefore, only God can change that law ... not a king, a president or a supreme court. No one on earth can force a person to change their belief because a judge says so. That being said, everyone deserves respect no matter what they believe. The Bible tells us to love one another ...we don't have to agree or even like everyone. But we do have an obligation to be kind and respectful even if we disagree.
Early in the rhetoric about gay rights, the claim was that they wanted to be accepted, but it seems that now some insist on endorsement. Unfortunately this is not a realistic goal. Neither courts nor people can force approval. But that doesn't mean we can't get along.

To the Editor: Snow ratings questioned

On yet another nasty winter day, I am deciding whether to brave the roads and go to work. I am struck by the fact that Wood County Offices are closed, yet the Sheriff feels conditions only warrant a Level 1 snow emergency? Meanwhile, Lucas County has gone to Level 3. . .
