Sound Off — April 5

Castle or bunker?
It’s been said that a man’s home is his castle. I’m wondering about that … especially if you live in the east end of Port Clinton. It may be that a sound-proof bunker would be more appropriate.

As has been recently reported, a stray bullet from a nearby shooting range entered a family’s home and landed in their bathroom sink. It doesn’t take a lot of imagination to think of the real harm that bullet may have caused. A very dangerous and scary situation to say the least.
Why not use the world-renowned Camp Perry shooting range located a mere 4 ½ miles west of town? There are no homes to damage or people to endanger and disturb with all the weekly loud and irritating popping and booming.
Sounds like a safe and sensible solution that would possibly prevent something much more serious from happening to one of our local neighborhood citizens.
Another plus is that we would not have to wear our earplugs numerous times throughout the week.
