Letters to the Editor

Eminent domain for park is wrong

DEAR EDITOR: The ruling on the Mill Creek MetroParks bike trail hits a nerve in many citizens. I, for one, am not comfortable with the government allowing eminent domain for recreation. Having said that, I want to tell you how I feel about the park itself and recreation. I have been a ...

Misleading reports on COVID to continue

DEAR EDITOR: As an occupational safety, health and environmental professional for more than 40 years, I and my counterparts rely on experts within the fields of everything from machine guarding to infectious disease. Groups such as the National Safety Council, the National Institute of ...

There is still much good in the world

DEAR EDITOR: We hear so much bad news these days; therefore, I wanted to share with you some good deeds recently performed by community members. These are the things that nobody notices and nobody reports. On Saturday, July 4, I stopped at the GetGo on the corner of Southern Boulevard and ...

Columbus should be honored, not defiled

DEAR EDITOR: We need to save Columbus, Ohio. When Christopher Columbus was born in 1451, his parents named him after St. Christopher. His father believed he would be used to carry the divine word to the countries across the mighty ocean to heathen nations. He was baptized to do this ...

DEAR EDITOR: I was quite young when Martin Luther King Jr. taught me about the value of a person’s character and that through nonviolence we were learning to define ourselves more clearly as one American people. It was no surprise to me, then, that throughout my early education, I ...

Biden, Democrats will raise our cost of living

DEAR EDITOR: If Democrats win in November, here is what to expect: higher taxes even on your 401(k)s. First, you lost your pension, now they want more of this. They will change the retirement rules for you in the middle of the game. The green deal will take the “green” right out of ...

Great wave of people will vote for Biden

DEAR EDITOR: I was listening to a conversation describing Democrats as unenthusiastic in their support for Joe Biden compared to the energy and fervor among Republicans to re-elect Donald Trump. This belief is completely false. Here is the truth: the disgust Democrats hold for Trump is ...

Democrats doing little to stop mob rule in US

DEAR EDITOR: It is not about Black Lives Matter anymore. When protests turn to burning buildings, looting, vandalizing, defacing, taking over six blocks in Seattle, taking down and destroying our monuments and our American history, this needs to stop. These are anarchists; we do not govern ...
