To the Editor: BG letter carriers to collect food to Stamp Out Hunger

Dear Bowling Green Community,
Saturday, May 10th marks the 22nd anniversary of one of America's great days of giving - The National Association of Letter Carries - Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
Letter carriers walk through our community every day, often coming face to face with a sad reality for too many, hunger. Each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers across the country collect non-perishable food donations from our customers. These donations go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in Bowling Green who need our help.
The need for food donations is great. Currently, 49 million Americans - 1 in 6 - are unsure where their next meal is coming from. 16 million are children who feel hunger's impact on their overall health and ability to perform in school. Nearly 5 million seniors over the age of 60 are food insecure, with many who live on fixed incomes often too embarrassed to ask for help.

That one word rather sums up how we felt watching the stupendous performance last weekend at BGHS! One of us had seen this show in NY and he said this was as good as it had been there. How can we all thank all the teachers and students and volunteers for giving us such a thrill? Abby Paskvan had a perfect voice for the part and executed it very well. Thanks for giving us such a fine evening!

To the Editor: Eastwood plan to centralize elementaries misses point

It seems to us that the recent presentation to the Eastwood school board regarding the proposed centralized elementary building really missed the "central" point.
We all want our schools to have good facilities in new/renovated/updated buildings.
The real issue is the location of these facilities. We would like to retain the concept of the neighborhood elementary schools in Pemberville and Luckey. The neighborhood school is within walking distance for many kids; the school's presence in the villages contributes to the strength of the local economy, the local tax base and, most importantly, to the community's spirit and identity. And we think it is absolutely fine to have separate facilities for the younger kids away from a central campus.
Luckey and Pemberville will certainly not be the same communities without their own neighborhood elementary school. That, in turn, will detract from the entire Eastwood community.

To the Editor: Rehab care praised

I recently, due to a home accident, had a total hip replacement at Wood County Hospital. The surgeon recommended that I should go to Bowling Green Manor for rehabilitation. Surgery was new to me so I followed his advice. I was there for two months. What a great recommendation that ended up being. I was treated and felt like Ted Turner or another celebrity. Everybody there was treated with respect and dignity no matter what they were there for. The administration, nursing staff, aides, kitchen staff/food and physical therapists should be given an  AAA+ rating along with attagirls and attaboys. The icing was put on the cake on Tuesdays. That is when Dr.Tom Wojo (Wojciechowski) came in, who is  a peach of a person. It was nice getting home but I was thinking of how I might get another week. BG Manor however lined me up with another gem for in home health care, the Heritage Care from Maumee.
