Biden and fracking
To the editor: Clarifications are needed for the guest editorials that ran in the Nov. 2, 2020 edition of The Press.
Joe Biden wants to gradually transition from fracking to renewable energy. The fracking issue is actually a moot point as the six major oil companies BP, Shell, Chevron, Total, Eni, and Exxon have already invested in renewable energy projects to replace oil.
Ohio was on course to become a renewable energy state until then Gov. John Kasich opted to cut off the funding in favor of fossil fuel and nuclear energy.
The Press failed to identify Chris Krug who is the president of the Franklin Center and The Center Square is its website. The Franklin Center associates with CPAC, Fox News, Breitbart, Heritage Foundation and other conservative and libertarian think tanks at the state level. These are the same people who are five states away from calling for a new Constitutional Convention, according to Common Cause.

Northwood’s gain
To the editor: I was happy to read about the plans for the former Woodville Mall site. It sounds like Glenn Grisdale has done a good job for Northwood and helped get Amazon, NSG, First Solar and many jobs in the area.
The plans for the mall site include senior and assisted living facilities as well as acres set aside for office space, retail and other commercial business.
Hopefully, more families will move near there.
Grisdale has done very well for Northwood. He tried to help the City of Oregon grow but many didn’t listen to him. Northwood’s gain and Oregon’s loss.

Wreaths Across America
To the editor: The Eastwood Key Club, in partnership with Eastwood High School alumni Chad and Victoria (Rogers) Albright; Freedom American Legion Auxiliary Unit #183, Pemberville and Troy-Webster American Legion Auxiliary Unit 240, Luckey, is spearheading the effort to put wreaths on veterans’ graves in the Eastwood district for the upcoming Christmas holiday.
The Albrights brought the project to the organizations in 2019. This year, the group has expanded its goal to serve five cemeteries.
The wreaths cost $15, each and 700 are needed to assure that all veterans buried in the five cemeteries have a wreath on their graves for Christmas.
This year, we have arranged for a “buy two, get one free” agreement with Wreaths Across America.
Those interested in supporting the project may send a check payable to the Eastwood Key Club for $15 for each wreath they wish to sponsor. Remember, if you sponsor two wreaths, the third one will be free, so you will be sponsoring wreaths for three veterans’ graves. Include a separate paper with your name, address, phone, and email with the check and drop it off at Eastwood High School before Monday, Nov. 26.
To sponsor online, visit wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/162817 for a secure online transaction. Use the Fundraising Group ID: OH0225.
Contact Becky Dippman at 419-409-6032 for an official sponsor form, or more options. Orders must be received by Wreaths Across America before Nov. 30.
Wreaths will be shipped directly to the location, not to individuals. A placement ceremony will be held Saturday, Dec. 19 at 10 a.m. in the Eastwood High School parking lot. Then the groups will move to the five cemeteries, where family members of veterans will place wreaths on their loved ones’ graves. Volunteers will place the rest of the wreaths.
For more info, contact Nathan Howard, Eastwood High School Key Club at 419-833-3611; Chad Albright at 703-298-7435, or Anne Michel at 419-308-0142.
As longtime advocates of veterans and their families, we can’t think of a better Christmas gift. Please act now to be included as sponsors for this wonderful project.
A special thank you to Chad and Victoria Albright for bringing this project to our community.
Nathan Howard, Eastwood Key Club
Anne Michel, President Freedom Unit #183
