Letters to the Editor

Preserve all history, even when it’s ugly

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to the Tribune Chronicle’s Dec. 26, 2019 editorial titled, “It is time to erect new statues.” It’s too bad many believe history should be erased. Our past is not always pretty — sometimes it’s actually ugly — but it should always be ...

Lethal injection drugs can be found

DEAR EDITOR: Our governor has said several times that the state cannot find a source of drugs that meet the legal requirements for execution in Ohio. How is it that junkies can find drugs easily enough that meet the requirement of death? Surely the state can get the drugs used by addicts. ...

Holidays are a time for sharing with others

DEAR EDITOR: With the Christmas season here, we should take a moment to see how blessed we all are to have all the things that we enjoy. We should take a moment to think about the people in our area who may not be as fortunate and that may need that little extra to make their holidays a little ...

Democrats will preserve, expand Social Security

DEAR EDITOR: New reporting shows companies are scrapping pension plans and going to 401k plans. That’s why it is so important Social Security be expanded. Some companies offer buyouts, offer big checks, but they don’t tell their employees the big check is worth less than their pension. ...

Save Mosquito Creek wetlands, protect water

DEAR EDITOR: The Mosquito Creek corridor, a tributary to the Mahoning River, is being threatened by the Enterprise Park development, one of the largest wetland “fills” in Ohio Environmental Protection Agency history, located in the Mahoning Valley in northeastern Ohio. The Enterprise ...

Trumbull Regional has made improvements

Growing economy is win / win for everyone

DEAR EDITOR: Democrat Michelle Obama said when she was our first lady that for the sake of fairness, many must be willing to accept a smaller piece of the “economic pie.” Slicing up the “pie” equally means that some will get a larger slice at the expense of others, whose slice will ...

Dems, Republicans must work together

DEAR EDITOR: Our president has been impeached by the House of Representatives — what’s next? We are painfully divided over whether he should remain in office. We have time to act carefully. Should we hear evidence from White House witnesses at trial or not? Senators need to know we ...

Keep freedoms and vote out Trump, GOP

DEAR EDITOR: The propaganda technique most used by despots is to lie big and often, whether denying wrongdoing or claiming moral high ground and glorious achievement. Eventually, they know people will believe them. To me, this is a clearer description of what government wastes so much of ...

US Constitution may have its own magic

DEAR EDITOR: It is a far cry from Merlin. Cast your spell upon thy land. “It’s a witch hunt and a sham!” That echo has timbered around the world. Called out by our 45th president. The self-proclaimed “Chosen One,” where no president before him could handle the state of affairs ...
