Yolan Dennis will do a good job serving the 94th District

To the Editor:

I met Yolan Dennis in 1968 when I entered Waterford High School. She is still the smiling, smart, sensible countrywoman that I have remembered for the last 46 years. She has been a registered nurse for 32 years while raising five children with her husband, Dr. Lloyd Dennis.

If you care about saving energy and the planet, don’t vote Kasich

To the Editor:

This past June on a very unlucky day (Friday the 13th), our governor enacted SB 310, freezing the state renewable energy standard for two years. Soon thereafter, he signed into law restrictions for the wind-energy industry that will result in a projected loss of $2.5 million worth of wind projects in Ohio.

There are lots of good reasons to support Jill Thompson

To the Editor:

In the General Election this November, the people of Athens County have a very important local race to decide on - the county auditor race. In the one corner there is the Athens City Auditor Kathy Hecht, and in the other, incumbent Athens County Auditor Jill Thompson.

The neighborly thing to do is to support the senior levy on Nov. 4

To the Editor:

If your neighbor came to the door and asked you for a sandwich, would you give her one? What if your neighbor needed just one sandwich for the entire year? This will be the modest cost of the renewal levy, Issue 4, on the ballot in Athens County in November.

Don’t believe that do-nothing Bill Johnson cares about us

To the Editor:

Since his gerrymandered insertion as Ohio's 6th District congressman in 2010, U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson and his staff have conducted an ongoing campaign of misrepresentation and deception designed to hide the fact that he has done absolutely nothing for the area he supposedly "represents"…

Your yes vote on the senior renewal levy will help many

To the Editor:

Please vote YES on Issue 4, Senior Services Renewal Levy. Approximately 380 of our elderly and disabled neighbors rely on Meals-On-Wheels for food.

Why do we think OU athletes will take advantage of center?

To the Editor:

OU is building an Athletic Academic Center? That sounds like the lead-in to a joke, akin to "Three men walked into a bar…"

Please fight for the veterans who are getting bad treament

To the Editor:

This letter also has been sent to U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and President Obama.

FYI. Our government members have proved once again that they are con artists and that the veterans who serve this country are the victims.

It’s scary to have one media firm with so much local control

To the Editor:

I don't know that I'm completely comfortable with the conservative Adams Publishing Group taking over The Athens NEWS. Athens County is, after all, one of the most liberal counties in Ohio (have you ever seen the two-color political map of the county-by-county vote for Ohio's DOMA in 2004?).

Undersigned groups from across the nation support Marzec

To the Editor:

Over the last few weeks, we have been shocked at the deliberate smear campaign, death threats, and racist, sexist and Islamophobic comments that Student Senate President Megan Marzec has received over her modified "Ice Bucket Challenge," in which she expressed her personal concerns over the atrocities that have occurred this summer in Gaza.
