Letters to the Editor

Safety more vital than speediness

DEAR EDITOR: As a member of the board of trustees of the McKinley Memorial Library, I was disappointed and disheartened by your Sunday editorial exhorting area libraries to fully reopen “with more urgency.” Based on Gov. Mike DeWine’s Responsible RestartOhio program, the McKinley ...

Food insecurity still exists in US

DEAR EDITOR: I am a dietetic student attending Youngstown State University. I am a mom and former employee of St. Joseph Warren Hospital. In the wake of COVID-19, many families are experiencing food insecurity for the first time, and I am deeply concerned by the disproportionate impact the ...

President wears down all our trust

DEAR EDITOR: What great guys Donald Trump and Steve Mnuchin are! How protective of “confidential” information. After their chicken feed distribution to all of us, they distributed $511 billion to a much smaller audience of friends and supporters of their non-government. Their largesse ...

Grateful to live in Poland Township

DEAR EDITOR: As I sit here and think about all the sadness and bitterness in our country, I feel the need to let the people of our wonderful community, and most especially Poland Township know how truly lucky and grateful we are to live here. Our police, fire, trustees, administrators, ...

Vienna officer’s portrayal off base

DEAR EDITOR: This is regarding the article written about Christopher Zadroski. Chris is a wonderful son, father and brother to his family. He is kind, polite and a good and decent man. He has moved on and deserves to have a chance to do what he loves. I applaud Vienna police Chief Ludt for ...

Bishop embodied Christian qualities

DEAR EDITOR: It was a great joy and wonderful blessing to have Bishop George V. Murry, S.J., lead the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown during the last 13 years. He truly embodied the qualities that Pope Francis urges all members of Catholic ministries to embrace: hospitality, temperance, ...

Columnist Cal’s racial bias is on full display

DEAR EDITOR: I suggest your newspaper ceases wasting money on syndication fees for Cal Thomas. I don’t know if he was ever “with it,” but he is certainly far past it. His tone-deaf interview with Newt Gingrich had their racial bias on full display. Could he not comprehend the sad ...

We have right to be free from evil-doers

DEAR EDITOR: Regarding these protests, Martin Luther King Jr. never burned down businesses or mistreated police, even when President Lyndon Johnson had him arrested! He brought us together in peaceful marches, not the way the people today are doing it, lying to young people that all police ...

Racism comes under Democrats’ leadership

DEAR EDITOR: First of all, the death of George Floyd was terrible, and the officer, if convicted, should be sentenced to life. That said, it is quite upsetting hearing the press and progressive politicians continually talking about systemic racism. The USA has made great strides in race ...
