Letters to the Editor

Freedom is hard to accept by many people in America

DEAR EDITOR: I’ve spent 40-plus years explaining, providing guidance to clients on many rules and regulations applicable to running a business, specifically applicable to “employer-employee relationship.” Often mandates are confusing, difficult to adhere to, centered on the fact ...

GOP is hypocritical in its political maneuvers

DEAR EDITOR: When it comes to questions of executive orders or packing the Supreme Court, the hypocrisy of the GOP and camp follower, columnist Cal Thomas, it’s hard to judge the ability of one versus the other. The GOP, led by Mitch McConnell, refused to even conduct a public hearing ...

Ex-county supervisor deserves an apology

DEAR EDITOR: I read the April 8 Tribune Chronicle article about former Trumbull County maintenance supervisor Roy Elza’s comments from the April 7 Trumbull County commissioners’ meeting regarding his retirement. I also listened to the audio of the meeting. In listening to the meeting, ...

Shuba’s gesture so much more than a handshake

Today, we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the handshake of Youngstown native George Shuba with Jackie Robinson, a defining moment in civil rights and a consequential addition to Mahoning Valley history. Rookie first basemen Jackie Robinson debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers’ minor league ...

Gratitude to many for love of history

DEAR EDITOR: With regards to recent published information by Mr. Richard Scarsella, president of the William Holmes McGuffey Society, I would have added some information. We would be quite remiss not to mention the hard work for years by the members of the society, many professors at YSU or ...

Under Dems, we’ll all spiral downward

DEAR EDITOR: I read letters to the editor from Democrats, and I’m confused. We had a president that was a big mouth narcissist, but the economy was the best it’s ever been. His efforts, or lack thereof, to control COVID-19 left much to be desired, but he created Operation Warp Speed ...

Stay vigilant for return to normal

DEAR EDITOR: The past year focused the entire planet on one challenge — defeating disease. How can we prevent it with vaccines? And how can we treat it when people get sick, so we save their lives? These feats represent the best of biopharmaceutical progress. COVID-19 will be ...

Working people today deserve $15 wage

DEAR EDITOR: I keep hearing the talking heads claim how a minimum wage of $15 will ruin the economy, how the stimulus package will disincentivize the working man. How has everyone bought into this rich man’s baloney? That $15 an hour would give that working man $120 for an eight-hour ...

True patriots don’t suppress voting

DEAR EDITOR: The media reported on March 24 that GOP leader Gale E. Measel Jr. said the Patriot Caucus, a splinter group, won’t split the Republican Party, but could help each other. A patriot is a person who loves, supports and defends his or her country and its interests. To me, that ...

We still need the Capitol barricades

EAR EDITOR: I just saw that some nut drove his car into the barricade outside the Capitol in Washington, D.C. I wonder if he’s one of former President Donald Trump’s supporters who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6. I also watched the barriers being removed, along with razor barbed wire. ...
