Car show a success
To the editor: A big thanks to Crusin Zeake and his crew for the help with the Wreaths Across America Car Show held Memorial Day weekend at Friendship Park in Lake Township. Also thanks to VFW Post 9963, Walbridge, for presenting the flag, playing taps and the 21-gun
salute. It was very moving and a great tribute to our veterans.
The weather was beautiful and we had 185 cars lined up around the pond at the park. Thanks to all who brought their cars out and helped raise over $3,500 to go to placing wreaths on the veterans graves in December at Lake Twp. Cemetery.
If any business or individual would like to contribute towards this awesome event, please contact me at 419-838-6855

Hurting Oregon?
To the editor: As I sat down to write this letter, I was steamed up about the terrible things our city representatives are doing that will hurt our homes and the residents of Oregon.
Trying to bring another industrial park in the beautiful farm land to the east of our city and who knows what else – some people involved aren’t being very transparent – is a poor idea.
Many of the farms have been in their families for generations and they are peaceful, hardworking people. The other property owners, I believe, came to this area just to live in peace and quiet.
Our country isn’t in the best shape right now. Some of us don’t want to be in the fast lane of life or we would move to the big cities. We are trying to understand why some of our city representatives are demanding changes that aren’t in the best interest of our little piece of heaven in Oregon. So we continue to pray for better days when our city officials don’t think they are the boss of everyone’s lives and just try to keep what we have without more industry.
As I was writing this letter a song came on, Angels Among Us, by Alabama. It made me think if we stay active and make our beliefs known, these angels will make our light shine. I pray all the people elected by the citizens remember we chose them to represent us.
We’re paying taxes to pay their wages and retirement and we are also paying for the wonderful hard-working firemen and police officers who we appreciate so much.
Not so many years ago the city had a policy that to work here for the city you had to be a resident. I don’t think that was a bad idea with the way things are being forced on us. This was their home and they looked out for us because they lived here and raise their families. Now we have employees from Sylvania, Toledo, Perrysburg and towns to the east. They don’t care it’s not affecting their lives.
Let’s work to take back our city and make our feelings known. For those neighbors and friends who live among us let’s work toward doing this and we won’t have to have these unwelcome things forced on us. Nothing is impossible if we work together. Be active and come to council meetings and be aware of what is happening in our city.
