Letters to the Editor

Walkers, be aware of dogs in city

DEAR EDITOR: My husband and I walk daily for exercise, and while we were doing so early one morning last month, we noticed two stray pit bulls in the vicinity of Lincoln School on Warren’s northeast side. We turned down a side street hoping they would not follow us but, unfortunately, ...

Foreign interests take over US firms

DEAR EDITOR: U.S. trade with China has been very bad the last nine years. President Trump is changing that. The Chinese have demanded and obtained exclusive rights from U.S. companies for manufacturing and the secrets to manufacturing to do business in China. Yet, the Chinese have come ...

Candidates who will destroy their states

DEAR EDITOR: I just came across the article that names candidates who are running for Congress in different states. These kind of people don’t belong in the U.S., but they are trying to take over our democracy with their demented thinking. Here’s a few names and the state they want to ...

Cameras bad for policing

DEAR EDITOR: Traffic cameras are designed to enforce the speed limit in high-traffic areas such as state Route 46 in Howland. On the surface, these cameras seem to be a useful tool to obtain data and enforce the law while freeing up manpower. However, they may undermine an essential aspect ...

Garbage in, garbage out applies to society

DEAR EDITOR: Many of us are tired of seeing the worst in people, and seeing that display regularly in the news has struck a raw nerve. I have to agree President Donald Trump has no filter on what he says at times and some of his tweets are less than desirable. But his pro-growth for ...

Trump brings out worst in us

DEAR EDITOR: I doubt anyone was truly surprised by Roseanne Barr’s recent racist rant. Racism, sexism, bigotry and hate seem to be “how we roll” these days. We have a person in the White House who has no moral compass whatsoever, and it tends to bring out the worst in all of us. ...

Funding liberal hypocrisy

DEAR EDITOR: I’ve noticed that the national television media like ABC, CBS, MSNBC and CNN no longer are covering stories like the illegal immigrant protests, Occupy Wall Street and black lives matter. Since President Donald Trump was elected, these movements seemed to have disappeared. ...

America’s needs the will and the need

DEAR EDITOR: The United States there of. This is the house we live in. This is the house we love. What, I ask, would be wrong with strengthening this great home of ours, to make America like new again? The infrastructure needs repair, the electric grid needs attention paid to it. The ...

Questions about recovery houses

DEAR EDITOR: I read the article in the April 15 Tribune Chronicle about recovery houses protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. My daughter has MS — that is a disability / handicap — and she works a 40-hour-per-week job. An alcoholic and drug addict are neither of the ...

Residents not to blame for sewers

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to a letter from the man who is supposed to clean Warren streets and blames city residents for blocking the storm sewer when they mow their lawns. If you want to blame someone for that, start with the street department. In the winter they use their mix of ...

Get to bottom of Trump probes

DEAR EDITOR: In response to the writer who was “sick and tired of seeing and hearing about the LCDs (least common denominators, such as Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, et al), in the mainstream media.” They are in the news, he must realize, because of the other LCD (Donald Trump) with ...

Israel showed no gratitude to Obama

DEAR EDITOR: During the 2012 re-election campaign, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu begged former president Barack Obama to address the Iranian nuclear buildup. In addition to developing nuclear capability, Iranian leaders were vowing to drive the little state of Israel into the sea. ...

Growing e-cigarette use is alarming

DEAR EDITOR: What is the world coming to? What is next in society? I have amazingly witnessed young people with this new fad of smoking electronic / e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes? Who was the Einstein that came up with this prize? The truth is, it was invented in 2003 by Chinese pharmacist ...

Tiger Town should stay in Howland

DEAR EDITOR: Howland Township Park Board has presented Howland Township with a comprehensive plan for the future of Howland’s three parks which the residents of Howland should support. A need exists for the residents and visitors to have modern, age-friendly locations for recreation. A new ...

Central committee votes should be open

DEAR EDITOR: Recently, as a Democratic central precinct committee member, I had the responsibility of voting to elect a Trumbull County coroner after the death of our beloved coroner, Humphrey Germaniuk. In that meeting there were concerns expressed by other members on the way the vote was ...

Take pride in Warren and clean up areas

DEAR EDITOR: Historic Perkins Homestead Neighborhood Association recently held its annual spring clean-up event. Trash — beverage containers, plastic bags, paper, etc. — that accumulated over the winter months was picked up within the organization’s boundaries by willing volunteers. Many ...

Stand up for Second Amendment right

DEAR EDITOR: And as we close out the week there is another school shooting. What can be done? First we can stop blaming the NRA and the gun manufacturers and start looking at some common-sense ways to address the problem. How do we identify people who should not have guns? This will be a ...

Assistant band director made impact

DEAR EDITOR: All of us who had the pleasure of knowing Clinton Foster were saddened to hearing of his recent passing. Mr. Foster was the former assistant band director at Warren G. Harding High School and the band director at Warren Western Reserve. For those who may not be able to enjoy ...

We need Christian spiritual leaders

DEAR EDITOR: I read the letter in the April 28 Tribune Chronicle by Mike Jones telling the truth about why our world is in such shape as it is. I wish we had church leaders in Warren who understand the Bible as Mr. Jones does. We are in need of born-again, spiritual preachers who pray for ...

Let tax cut savings fund Trump’s wall

DEAR EDITOR: For all the people who have the idea that a wall is necessary, here’s a thought. What if Donald Trump asks all the people who received a more than $5,000 per year tax break to give back $500 to the wall. Now all the people who voted for Trump (who, by the way, said Mexico ...
