To the Editor: Veterans deserve better

This is a copy of a letter I recently sent to Bob Latta.
Bob, once again the VA has made the headlines. "Bonuses for under performers," not to mention horrible service to our most cherished asset, veterans. How many times will we allow this big lethargic red tape government entity to slap down our veterans. The managers wallow in wealth and bonuses while veterans succumb to their wounds. Bob, please be bold, and sponsor a bill that all but closes down the VA. I would like to see all VA funds diverted to local health care organizations, and prioritize veteran health.

To the Editor: Husted's efforts to set Ohio voting practices criticized
Written by Jim Litwin

I know a number of ethical and honest Republicans, but GOP Secretary of State Jon Husted is not one of them. Husted sets the laws for voting practices in Ohio. In the 2012 Presidential Election, he attempted to reduce opportunities for certain groups to vote. Those groups included the poor, minorities, women, and college students, all of whom tend to vote Democratic. A federal appeals judge overturned his directives as unconstitutional.
But Husted and other overzealous partisans did not give up on attempts to suppress the vote of those not likely to vote for GOP candidates. They began to develop the notion of voter fraud to justify changes in voting practices. Voter fraud. Really? I recently contacted State Representative Tim Brown.

To the Editor: Save green space in downtown

I applaud John Calderonello for his excellent letter (June 18, 2014) proposing that the green space at the southwest corner of Wooster and Church become Bowling Green's "Central Park."
It has been over a year since I went to City Council to advocate for this use of this green space and wrote a letter to the Sentinel to give additional support. It makes good sense to promote this open space at which Bowling Green residents and others can enjoy a park-like environment for occasional music, art exhibits, and other cultural activities as well as a peaceful place to relax during a downtown work day or a  pause between errands.

To The Perrysburg Community,
I wish to thank all the parents, students, colleagues, administrators, and the Board of Education for the many years of support and encouragement I received while teaching for the school district. It has been a privilege and honor to serve this community. As I end my career in Perrysburg, I wish to thank all the parents for their generous gifts and comments. Words cannot express my feelings for the caring support you have given me over the years.
To the students of Perrysburg, you literally made me the person that I am. Without you, my life would not have been as rich and fulfilling that it is. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the patience, courtesies, and hard work you gave me through the years.
