To the Editor: Citizens encouraged to read to get real stories behind politics
Written by Linda Bishop, Findlay

Ever wonder why our two major political parties are so much alike yet divides us as to which party has the best plan?  And why the choice of presidential candidates has you voting for the 'lesser of two evils'? Do you question why the often called Main Street media barely reports on anything newsworthy? You either hear of major events on Talk Radio, Facebook, Twitter, or word of mouth. Even then you can't help wondering what isn't being reported. Have you ever wondered why regardless of who is in power, things never seem to get better for people and the downward spiral of America continues?
If you're yearning for answers to these and many other questions, you might be interested in reading "The Shadows of Power, The Council on Foreign Relations and The American Decline"  by James Perloff which I was lucky enough to stumble upon and read recently. You can reserve it from the Findlay Public Library or purchase it from the Christian Book Store in Findlay, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or even E-Bay.
Though it was written 25-plus years ago, it explains what's going on currently and is a quick read. This timeless book is a real eye opener and should be required reading. You can learn of future political events by reading what the Council On Foreign Relations writes about today. If your library does not have this book on its shelves, please ask that it get a copy or two for the public to read.

To the Editor: Reasonable debate needed on issues such as gun rights
Written by V. N. Krishnan

You have made a significant contribution in your editorial "Middle ground for gun laws" (6/25) by setting the debate as it should be: "not ant-gun but anti-gun fanatic," and "even good things need limits." I would like to go on record as one who respects everything that is endowed by our Constitution. That includes the Second Amendment.
As a nation we cannot afford not have reasonable debate on vital issues without getting emotional though it is difficult to do. As a strong supporter of rights including gun rights, I cannot rationally support one right and oppose another in the same Constitution. But still you cannot abdicate to exercise your God given reason. Immanuel Kant tells us that we use only 10 percent of our reason and warns "Out of timber so crooked as that from which man is made, nothing entirely straight can be built."

To the Editor: Hospital blood draw site should not be changed

I saw the letter from Nancy Wolcott in the paper and would like to express my opinion about the closing of the blood draw center on Poe and Haskins Road. I am a frequent user of that service because of the convenience of parking and entry. Wood County Hospital parking is very difficult for handicapped users and even when inside the walk to your destination is long. The Draw Center staff have always been polite and extremely helpful in addition to the ease of parking and access. I think it is a terrible mistake to close this facility.

To the Editor: BG man seeks information on his missing paintings
Written by Robert B. Blackwell

Recently I have had an issue with some large (4 by 6 foot) multi-media contemporary art paintings belonging to myself, Robert B. Blackwell. As you might or might not know, the paintings were my life's work, and are quite valuable to me and my family.
They were being stored at the Northside Storage owned by the Root family. Since the father and one son died, the remaining brother decided to sell the convenience store, car wash and storage units to the Halleck brothers, who are now the owners. They claim they have no knowledge of my ever renting there, but I do have canceled checks.
They were being stored in this self-storage bin in which no one was to have access to without prior knowledge of the owner and at which time the property would be handled by myself.
