Just move church directory to private location; all will be OK

To the Editor:

A simple question to supporters of the church directory on the courthouse: Why is this religious object on a government building instead of a private building?

Not much left of Chauncey compared to the old days

To the Editor:

The end of each year is a time we reflect back on what we have accomplished. I'm saddened that the village of Chauncey has continued to diminish more and more over these past several years.

Church directory at courthouse OK since it’s religiously diverse

To the Editor:

In reference to the church directory that's attached to the Athens County Courthouse, since it contains more than just Christian church listings, it does not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

Champion Bulldogs suggest they have a lot to be grateful for

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Athens High School Football program, we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who supported us during our recent playoff run. Although we play the game, our victories would not have been made possible without the outpouring of support we continually received throughout the season.

Church directory harkens back to more tolerant time in history

To the Editor:

As a Christian and retired Clergyman, I'm getting wearied about that terrible "illegal" church directory on the Courthouse lawn! Of course, it was never needed! People of faith have always been able to find others of their tradition and their various Places of Worship.

Please help OU alum detained in the United Arab Emirates

To the Editor:

I ask for the help of residents of the Athens community, especially those who knew Dr. Amer Alshawa and his wife, Emel Inal, former residents of Athens for 17 years and Ohio University alumnus. Amer received a doctorate at Ohio University and his three children were born here before moving to Istanbul for family and business reasons.

It’s time to say enough with the no-can-do attitude

To the Editor:

Perhaps the most dismaying outcome of the recent election is the confirmation of a tragic shift in America's paradigm. We have confirmed that we have shucked the "can-do" attitude that has fueled our nation for a bicentennium, and have instead taken "no-can-do" as our platitude.
