Mrs. Clinton was less than stellar


Your Feb. 1 headline on the article about Hillary Clinton leaving her post as secretary of State reads: “Clinton exits stage with star still bright.” Your article said her career has been “widely recognized as stellar.” She should have shone some of that starlight on the events in Benghazi, Libya.

The four American diplomats who died there last September deserve the light of truth to shine on the events that ended in the tragedy.

Your article said Mrs. Clinton traveled to 112 nations while she was secretary of State. Too bad she never made it to the land of truth.

Clear sidewalks much appreciated

Making my Sunday morning walk more enjoyable were the sidewalks whose owners made obvious efforts to clean off snow and ice. I thank them for their sense of community and awareness that other people move through the world.

As for the sidewalks of other homes, my mother taught me that if I could say nothing nice about someone, I should say nothing at all. So I am saying nothing at all.

Lighthouse group welcomes help

On behalf of the board of the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy, I thank everyone who joined us at the public meeting last month at which we discussed efforts to restore the lighthouse.

Judging from the strong attendance, there is a great desire to see the lighthouse restored and interest in what that could mean for the future of the city.

I hope this grass-roots campaign, which we have dubbed “Bring Back the Light,” will begin a necessary dialogue about the future of the lighthouse.

The conservancy plans public meetings to keep the community informed of the lighthouse project. Residents should tell city leaders how they feel about the preservation of this structure, and what part it should play in Port Clinton’s development.

‘Thank you’ helps keep business

Most of the time I go through a drive-through or am at the counter of a fast-food restaurant, employees forget to say “thank you.” Those two words can make or break a person’s day.

I blame the restaurants’ owners. They should make it a priority for employees to thank customers.
