DEAR EDITOR:

As the “Blizzard of 2014” ends, we left with snow as far as the eye can see, frigid temperatures and icy roads. One of these are able to be controlled, of course. I’m talking of the icy and unsafe roadways. This should not be a concern for residents of Delphos and its surrounding area, yet the streets are horrendous. Why? Is it the city budget? Is it our so-called “civil servants?”

The safety of citizens, more importantly children, should top the list of concerns of city county and our mayor.

We can’t afford water let alone snow plows. That alone should be a call to action.

When drivers can’t accelerate past 10 mph without sliding, there’s a problem.

Manage the budget, cut down on expenses, do whatever it takes to make America’s Friendliest City also one of its safest.

Regards,

Kellen Schomaeker

DEAR EDITOR:

Delphos Residents,

We want to thank all the wonderful participants who made the 2nd Annual Betty Honigford Christmas Decorating Contest such a fun and happy event. We were truly impressed by the genuine spirit of the homeowners who entered the contest, the voters who emailed us their votes for People’s Choice, the residents who called us personally to vote and all the others who wrote to thank us for holding a contest which made their holiday a little brighter. Many people told us how looking at the decorated houses was a shared and anticipated family activity. We were touched by the abundance of gratitude and joy extended to us.

DEAR EDITOR:

The season of giving brings friends and families together for quality time, gift-giving and merry celebration. For those waiting, they’re hoping for a shining gift that won’t be wrapped under the tree or in a pretty box – they’re waiting for a second chance at life.

DEAR EDITOR:

I just want to say “thank you” to those who are employed by the City of Delphos that hung the speakers in the downtown area and are playing Christmas music through them. My dog and I take a lot of walks and this past Sunday, when it was snowing, we were out again. The closer I got to downtown, I could hear Christmas music playing. When we turned onto Main Street, the music was crystal clear. Wow! Between the Christmas music, the snow that was falling and just being outside, all added up to “Best Ever!”

Also a special thanks to our city employees and elected officials who are doing their best to take care of and maintain our city and keep us all safe.

Merry Christmas!

Jim Webb

DEAR EDITOR:

Wednesday morning, we the City of Delphos, lost one of our most dedicated public servants we had, Tom McCabe.

Sgt. Tom McCabe worked, lived, and died supporting the Delphos Police Department and the City of Delphos.

Tom was my superior officer when I started in law enforcement and was basically in charge of breaking me into law enforcement. He did his most to lay the groundwork for me in law enforcement; just wish I had absorbed his photography skills.

Tom was not only one of my most loyal and dependable officers I ever had served with, but one who had moral and ethical qualities. He was a friend you knew was forever.

Thanks for being a good cop Tom and loyal employee.

If I may borrow a favorite saying from Tom, “This is a bunch of bull----,”; we wish you still were here.

May your soul rest in peace but you be spiritually with us forever.

Dennis M. Kimmet

Retired Police Chief

Delphos
