Think before you vote for president in 2020

DEAR EDITOR: So people are telling the president they must flush 10 to 15 times? I would laugh, except he is supposed to be the president and leader of the free world. I know his hatred for President Obama is deep, but really, isn’t he taking this a bit too far? The world is laughing at ...

Democrats make fools of themselves

DEAR EDITOR: The Adam Schiff impeachment inquiry is finally over. None of the witnesses said President Trump did anything wrong. These were not fans of the president. Now they have three choices to make. The first is to drop this circus and get on with life. This won’t happen as the ...

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 ...
