Helping those in need due to the season.
Toys, clothing, cash, food?
Consider this: every single day, not just during the holidays, neighborhood and the major grocery store chains throw away hundreds of dollars of groceries. Dented cans, bruised produce, torn boxes, and frozen meats. Our local stores want to make available to us the freshest meats, chicken, salads, fish, cheese, soups, pizza and sauces. After about four hours in the display case, it gets thrown away, and replaced with fresh! After all, who wants to buy four hour food? How often has anyone seen the following;
Customer: "I'd like a pound of ... (fill in the blank)."
Store employee: "Certainly, how would you like that sliced?"
Customer: "For sandwiches please."
Store employee: (displaying three slices), "how's this?"
Customer: "Thicker / thinner please."
Store employee: "No problem." Then throws the three slices in a garbage can.

To the Editor: Dobson thanks Perrysburg Council for backing SRO

If I am going to use a public forum to bring attention to another public entity, it is incumbent upon me to recognize that same entity for taking action. I would like to thank all the members of the Perrysburg City Council for voting 7-0 in favor of adding the position of School Resource Officer to the city's budget. I am grateful that none of the council members dug in their heels in the face of pressure, but looked to the better protection of the students under their care and made what I am convinced is the right decision.
The parents and the students of the Perrysburg Schools should be pleased at the leadership shown by council in this matter. The Juvenile and CYCLE Divisions of my office look forward to the naming of the SRO and the opportunity to work with that officer. In that spirit of cooperation, I hope we can help foster a greater relationship of trust and safety between law enforcement and the youth of our community.

The Toledo Technology Academy is an innovative school offering an intense integrated academic and technical education focused on life-long careers in engineering and manufacturing technologies. They are housed in the ole' DeVilbiss High School; salvaging a valuable facility designed for education. The Commodore School could easily play a similar role in our area as a tremendous reborn educational facility complete with the auditorium, gym, cafeteria, elevator, and a minimum of 12 classrooms. In addition, there is tremendous green space for expansion providing a solution for the Perrysburg School District "created" space problems or multiple other educational options. The space could eliminate a number of the District Trailer Parks and restore the gem of Perrysburg. What does our short sighted Administration decide; but to create the Superintendent & Treasurer Administrative upper "Skyboxes" overlooking the Wayward Library while destroying the educational facility.

I and my family, really want to thank the Sentinel ... (sarcasm) for writing the brief about a 19-year-old from Haskins that was charged with some crimes on Friday 12-13-13.
I realize that the community has a right to know what's going on, but they can go to court records if they want!
Did you really have to smear the last name of the whole family? It's not like he will be reading it where he is! OR for the next three years!
Thanks again for making his younger sisters and family carry his shame!
