Heaven’s gates are guarded as well

DEAR EDITOR: Heaven has a high, thick wall around it. It has 12 guarded gates, and not everyone is allowed to enter. I believe if it is correct for heaven, it is correct for our nation or any nation who chooses. (Revelations 21:12) A.J. GARGANO Warren

Why we read print edition newspapers

DEAR EDITOR: People still read newspapers. According to a recent online article in Editor and Publisher, a Nielsen Scarborough study suggested “that in an average month, 169 million adults read a U.S. newspaper. They may be reading it in one or more iterations—in print, on the web, via a ...

About midterm millennial turnout and climate change

DEAR EDITOR: For too long and for too many, politics has often seemed like merely a game played between parties on a national level rather than the high stakes contest for our future that it is. However, that appears to be changing, especially with young people. According to the Atlantic, ...

GM response must be swift, firm, unified

DEAR EDITOR: This holiday season, the lives of many friends and neighbors are devastated by General Motors’ Nov. 26 announcement — one the entire nation should pay careful attention to. Actions of this corporation represent an unprecedented attack on American workers and families. If ...

DEAR EDITOR: In the Tribune Chronicle Dec. 8 sound-off column, a Warren writer mentioned the dearth of medical sites in western Warren. The writer pointed out: Why must we drive 30 minutes or more? The Trumbull Plaza on Parkman Road NW in Warren is about 95 percent empty, has a fire ...

Sound off!

Too much negativity in American society today

DEAR EDITOR: The U.S. today is caught in a non-stop revolving door; this nation is drinking its own poison daily, mentally enforcing anti-establishment behavior. Look at the headlines: listen to the subjects on the radio that are broadcast daily. Watch it on television programs. The internet ...

Media continues to spread climate of fear

DEAR EDITOR: I couldn’t help but notice the contrast of the only two articles on a page of Sunday’s edition. One was about the riots and demonstrations in France; the other was about quirky events signaling climate change. The one did have at least a small bit of truth about the French ...

Following golden rule makes America best

DEAR EDITOR: There is a mental problem with people who believe in the “America First” and “Making America Great Again” slogans. Belief in these slogans shows a disregard for others. It shows that a person believes only in winning and losing. It shows selfishness and arrogance. A ...

Truth about haves and have nots

DEAR EDITOR: For some time now, I have been watching the world’s perception of wealth and riches. In the eyes of many people, money is the gauge by which we determine whether one is considered to be a have or a have not. I have often written about truth, or the lack of it. What we see ...

It’s time to re-explore shale play drilling

DEAR EDITOR: Can it be true that Black Monday has hit the Mahoning Valley again? How many times can we be knocked down? Maybe from this tragedy a Phoenix will rise from the ashes. Maybe it’s time for local and state leaders to rally together to promote a very large asset that is right ...

Wake up and buy American products
