A SAFE PLACE TO GROW UP
Recently, I forgot my card in an ATM, like some of us have probably done before.
Luckily, whether by the spirit of Christmas or the kindness of a human heart, I had it returned to me with no purchases made.
I’m thankful to live in a town such as Findlay that is a safe place to grow up.
I’ve lived here my whole life and though we’ve had floods, snowstorms, and business closures, we always seem to grow back together.
REFLECT UPON OUR SHARED HERITAGE
As the Hanukkah season comes to a close and Christmas begins, it is a time to reflect upon the shared heritage Christians have with the Jewish people.
Although the miracle of Hanukkah occurred between the times of the writings of the Old and New Testament, it was both prophesied by Daniel (Daniel 8:13-14) in the Old Testament, and celebrated by Jesus, at the Temple, in the New Testament (John 10:22-23).
In fact, Jesus would have celebrated Hanukkah every year of his earthly life. He may have even played dreidel as a young boy with his mother and father, Mary and Joseph.
As a family we “double our fun,” celebrating both Hanukkah and Christmas. Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to all.
DO WE NEED A SAFETY PATROL?
Why do so many people disregard or not understand proper times to enter the crosswalks in downtown Findlay?
I see many people push the crosswalk button and step out immediately into traffic or just walk into traffic whenever they wish.
Do we need safety patrol volunteers downtown just like we have near our schools on a daily basis?
AN UNEXPECTED ACT
To the people who paid for our dinner at Bob Evans on Tiffin Avenue on Sunday, thank you for your generosity and kindness.
It was a ray of sunshine we did not expect. You certainly made our day.
May you have a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
