Guest editorial — Delphos: a perfectly boring place to live
Written by Information submitted

Growing up in Delphos, I thought the town should’ve changed the motto on the welcome sign to “America’s Most Boring City.” I didn’t care that Delphos had friendly people — I wanted something to do. But with no mall or movie theater and only a few places to eat, Delphos seemed like the least exciting place my family could’ve chosen to live.

After college, I moved to Dallas and I thought I had found the perfect city that offered me everything Delphos hadn’t (and couldn’t). If I got hungry, I could choose from dozens of restaurants or grocery stores, all within a 5-minute drive of my apartment. If I got bored, I could head to one of the country’s largest malls or take in a movie at one of the 40 theaters nearby. And to top it off, if I had an emergency, I could call for help from a 3,500-member police force or walk across the street to the second-ranked hospital in Texas.

 
On the Other Hand — No badges for Barbie

If some have their way, there will be no more camping badges, no more cooking badges, no more first aid badges, no more citizenship badges — for Barbie anyway.

Two advocacy groups — the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and the Center for a New American Dream — have urged the Girl Scouts of the USA to end its partnership with the Mattel toy company.

 
On the Other Hand — A long winter's nap

This column is on a topic near and dear to my heart — naps. I love naps. Not just any ol’ nap. A good nap.

Nothing ruins a nap quite like waking up and feeling more tired than when you laid down. Ugh! What a huge waste of time.

DEAR EDITOR:

There has been much controversy over the past several months regarding the potential building of a Dollar General just outside the Village of Ottoville.

I am writing this letter to let the public know that myself and others are NOT in favor of the proposed location, directly across from Ottoville Local School. US 224 is a 50-mph zone in front of the proposed location. In conversations with an engineer at ODOT, this stands to remain a 50-mph zone even with the development of a Dollar General. This is a matter of public safety when it comes to the children of Ottoville.

DEAR EDITOR:

Just thought I would let our community know there are “snow angels” working hard here.

This winter, and it has sure been a long one, I have had two guys who have kept my driveway, sidewalks, steps and patio cleared off so this if I really want to go out, I have no problem. I thank Carl Kohorst and Charles Wauben for their frigid labors on my behalf. Thanks, you guys are deeply appreciated.

I’d like to thank two young ladies, Sammi and Katie Knepper, for their wonderful cookies. As Rachel Ray says ... YUMMO!

Sincerely,

Mary Lou Wrocklage

Delphos
