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.

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. . .

To the Editor: Educators are shirking duties
Written by Phil Caron

The biggest winter calamity is the educator's expectation of more entitlements for non-value added vacation days with no contribution to the education of our children. The "fleecing" of Ohio needs to be stopped by the special committee on March 11th after the Ohio House and Senate shirked their duties with obvious decisions with the best interest of the owners of the schools. There is more than enough time to make up the class time lost with a little creative leadership and not the homework "fluke" idea (homework should exist anyway). They should not be rewarded for not working and more willing to do more to prepare our children for the real world where real jobs are 50 weeks and 2000 hours not part-timers. This is educator welfare and the next thing they will want is food stamps, unemployment for the summers, and free cell phones. They always claim it is for the kids and they are right "for their kids." Just a few years ago they had 3 snow days, and then moved to 5 snow days, and now 10-plus days?

To the Editor: Sheriff doesn't need weapons of war

So, "we" have an MRAP, for safety reasons ... The sheriff's department decided it needed a mine-resistant vehicle; it's fresh off the killing fields of Afghanistan. It's on loan "free" and all other expenses have been covered by the drug-seizure fund. The big boys over at DOD may want it back if our leaders decide to attack another country.
I take issue with war machines roaming our streets, and coming soon, flying our skies.
Northwest Ohio is not a battle ground, and weapons of war have no place here.
Nevertheless, this is becoming commonplace. There has been a steady militarization of this country's police. Gone is Andy Griffith, in is Rambo. Which is hard to understand because if laws create peace and harmony, then tens of thousands of new laws since the era of Andy Griffith should have, by now created Shangri La. Or maybe arbitrary laws don't bring peace, but merely create chaos, criminals.
Anyway, with very little research one can learn what impact these machines have on the attitude of those that use them. They, the anointed ones, don their black helmets with face shields, other black stuff to accessorize, then they get "re-educated."
