Tools for School
support appreciated
To the editor: Every August since 2002, the Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit has offered a school supply assistance program called Tools for School.
This year, the program served 409 Ottawa County students with school supplies and a new backpack. Since this program was funded by donations, its success was due to local residents, businesses and organizations that donated funds, such as Walmart – Port Clinton, Firelands Presbyterian Church, Catawba Moorings, St. John Lutheran Church, Marblehead Knights of Columbus, St. Joe’s – Marblehead, Trinity Lutheran – Elmore, Trinity United Methodist, Peace Lutheran Church, Port Clinton Education Department, First Energy’s Davis-Bessie nuclear power plant and the Ottawa County Republican Women’s Club, along with other anonymous community donations.
A huge thank you to the Port Clinton City School District for donating the bus for Stuff the Bus.
Thank you for all who have contributed funds, supplies and volunteer hours to this program. We could not continue to help our children without your support.
For further questions, please call our office at 419-732-2769.
Maureen Saponari, Director
Salvation Army- Port Clinton Service Unit

Phone policy
To the editor: I’m retired and living on a fixed income. I currently don’t have a cell phone. However, when I saw that the illegal immigrants coming into our country were given free cell phones, I contacted Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur’s office to see how I could get a free cell phone.
I spoke with a person in her office and she sent me a six-page application to complete and return. The application asked some personal questions, including my annual income. As I was filling out this application I wondered if the illegals were required to fill out these documents in order to receive a free phone.
I also wondered who is paying for all of these phones. Would it be the cell phone companies or the American taxpayers?
I figured if it were the taxpayers paying, then I should get one since I’ve probably paid more taxes than any of the illegals have paid.
