Long-term caring at Chartwell in Parkhill
As much as we have felt concern and fear over the last year, I have also felt an overwhelming amount of gratefulness. The worry and concern of having loved ones in long-term care during the COVID-19 pandemic can be overwhelming, but I am one of the many fortunate people to have those they love the most in Chartwell LTC in Parkhill, Ontario.
Letter to the Editor: Building the future of Stratford
As a family, we realize the Xinyi Glass Plant has polarized your city and we hope that, by sharing our research and our thoughts, we can provide solid information for you to consider on how this plant is a win-win decision for both our communities — the City of Stratford and Perth South.
Edwards does not speak for every conservative
After reading the letter from Ralph Edwards, where he disparaged the content of Karen Robinet’s column on the Trump era, I was compelled to respond. His letter is so out-of-touch and distorted that it is impossible to ignore, particularly when he implies that to be a conservative is to support Trump, and that most voters, let alone the majority of conservatives, do not share the same sentiments as Mrs. Robinet.
The mythology of solar and wind energy
For a number of years, we have been hearing green energy activists claiming that solar and wind power is an alternative to coal and fossil fuel. They do not know or don’t want to know that solar and wind energy is totally unreliable. Average size solar panel during sunny days output is approximately 290 watts per hour and at night 0 watts output, on a cloudy day 10 to 25 per cent output.
Letter to the Editor: The precautionary principle and three questions about Xinyi
As a retired public health professional, the precautionary principle – “err on the side of caution” – is important to me. I am writing to share three of my many concerns regarding the proposed glass manufacturing facility in Stratford.
Henry Aaron had Sarnia connection
It was very sad to hear that one of baseball’s all-time greatest players, Henry Aaron, passed away at the age of 86. Despite the hatred and prejudice he experienced, he was greatly respected both in baseball and as a voice for equal rights. Although Aaron was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by a wide majority, it amazes me that seven baseball writers voted against his induction.
Library deserves better location than Sarnia Arena
Relocating the Mall Road library to a jury-rigged location on the second floor of the Sarnia Arena shows a singular lack of foresight. Those with vision would look to a new purpose-built library that is done right, not some second-class “after thought” location.
Letters to the Editor: Excessive police budgets
I commend the Stratford police for taking part in a pilot project to partner up with mental-health professionals to assess people in the field. The only problem seems to be that it isn’t happening 24-7. My guess is the main reason for this is a lack of funds.
