Letters to the Editor

Actions support our troops, not words

DEAR EDITOR: As a Marine Corps veteran who served in Vietnam, I pay close attention to what our elected officials do — not just what they say — when it comes to standing up for our troops. I was concerned about reports that Donald Trump, our commander in chief, called veterans ...

Remember lies when Novembers arrive

DEAR EDITOR: The White House said President Trump doesn’t “read.” Well, it looks like the Republican Party missed its reading class, especially when it comes to our Constitution, Bill of Rights for all, Rule of Law and Webster’s Dictionary definitions: Treason — the offense ...

Sound off!

I thought the first to get the COVID-19 vaccine were first responders and seniors in nursing homes? I saw Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at 31 getting her shot. I saw that many states, including Oregon and Virginia, were giving the majority of their vaccines to people under 30 years of ...

Don’t be so quick to cancel Christmas

DEAR EDITOR: Sometimes people begrudge God for being generous to others. Protestants wanting to make reparations to black communities for their ancestors’ crimes of slavery is good. But knowing Jesus, God will most likely apply the “alms giving” for the benefit of their ancestors who ...

Handicap accessibility needed in community

DEAR EDITOR: I am writing to discuss the importance of creating a community that is accessible to all, including those who are disabled. The World Health Organization, WHO, describes barriers as being “more than just physical obstacles.” WHO describes these barriers as “Factors in a ...

How global health issues affect all of us

DEAR EDITOR: On May 21, 2020, a bill was introduced to U.S. Senate. That bill is the Global Health Security and Diplomacy Act of 2020. Some may be confused about why that is even important to us when we have so much going on domestically. This bill, co-sponsored by Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, ...

Sound off!

May I remind the Poland Sound off writer about late mail that President Trump publicly declared his intention to slow deliveries. His aim was to block the timely arrival of ballots, mostly sent by Democrats, so they could not be counted. Trump appointed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to ...

Teachers deserve much appreciation

DEAR EDITOR: Teachers deserve gratitude for everything they are doing to educate our youth. Their retired colleagues from the Trumbull Retired Teachers Association honor and thank them for all they have done during this pandemic. These are truly difficult times in so many ways, and they ...
