Letters to the Editor

Make a difference against local crime

DEAR EDITOR: Two state police undercover agents were fired upon while sitting in their unmarked surveillance vehicle. Do we live in Youngstown, Ohio, or Dodge City? When is this enough? We no longer can allow outlaws to roam our city streets and neighborhoods. It’s time we make a real ...

Paper needs more national news

DEAR EDITOR: This is to address the lack of national and international news in The Vindicator. There are some days that there is nothing in these areas. Sometimes there is only one story, something from Washington. Today there was one national and one international story. How can we be good ...

History of Republican shenanigans repeated

DEAR EDITOR: The “shenanigans” are on full display when it comes to “truth and facts” by the outpouring of lies from the White House and the Republicans in both Houses. I suppose if Richard Nixon were alive today, Republicans probably would try to portray him as a “saint,” but ...

Fining Samaritan was bad judgment

DEAR EDITOR: The “Good Deed” item Nov. 22 was really disappointing. To see this happen to a person who, out of the compassion of her heart wanted to help an animal, and got prosecuted for it. I have witnessed some ridiculous acts by local government officials, but I’ve got to admit, ...

Lordstown Motors plan not realistic

DEAR EDITOR: As optimistic and enthusiastic headlines abound concerning the viability of Lordstown Motors, I hate to be the pessimist in the room, but it seems to me the exuberance is completely unfounded. One need not spend tens of thousands of dollars on consultants to come to the ...

Sound off!

This is an “onion” to those responsible for ignoring for far too many years the need to pave Unity Road between South Range and Garfield Roads. Patching and repatching this section for about 30 years just isn’t making the taxpaying residents on this road have a warm and fuzzy feeling. In ...

Canfield board must take action or be complicit

DEAR EDITOR: As a graduate of Canfield Local Schools and former educator in the district, I am deeply disturbed and saddened that Superintendent Alex Geordan was intentionally deceptive in his communication with the community when the Canfield Village Middle School faced the possibility of a ...

Labor unions brought path to middle class

DEAR EDITOR: Being that the UAW was recently on strike, let’s talk about labor unions. The Republicans have always been against collective bargaining and increasing the minimum wage. They don’t want to see the butler on the beach or on the golf course with them. Some people blame ...

It’s about time for a change in the White House

DEAR EDITOR: If you wonder why President Trump’s so-called government sides with big corporations over workers, the environment, consumers and common good, it’s because none of the workers send millions of dollars to Trump and Republicans in the House and Senate to keep them getting ...

Founding fathers editorial misleads the readers

DEAR EDITORS: I’m writing in response to your editorial titled “Founders Fathers saw impeachment differently.” I disagree with virtually every point that you claim as support. Generally, your concerns reflected mostly procedural rather than factual discovery, unlike the Mueller report ...
