Letters to the Editor

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 ...

Remember actions taken by Trump

DEAR EDITOR: Hallelujah, thank you, Lord. The anti-middle class, anti-elderly and anti-poor Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has decided to call it quits. The only bad thing about that is he isn’t taking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with him. Together these two corporate-owned ...

Why be disagreeable on Trump’s bad press?

DEAR EDITOR: Allegedly, Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal were willing participants in separate encounters involving Donald Trump. Then came the non-disclosure agreements, or hush money as it has been called. How can you relate the phrase “lowest common denominator” to the woman and not ...

Fuda is a man with integrity

DEAR EDITOR: When I was a younger man, I didn’t much care about current events, or the world of politics, for that matter. As I mature, I realize I at least need to be aware of some of the concerns and issues that can impact my everyday life. Concerns, such as oil prices, can erode money ...

Reich is wrong

DEAR EDITOR: I am shocked that you would print such a biased, hate-filled and angry letter in your paper titled “How to prevent future Trumps,” by Robert Reich. He may be a professor somewhere and educated in things of politics, but he is lacking in the things of God and the Bible. The ...

Support Ohio’s cosmetology bills

DEAR EDITOR: We are the owners of several hair salons in Trumbull, Mahoning and Lake counties, as well as in Pennsylvania, providing top-notch styling services to our customers and proudly employing more than 100 talented individuals in this rewarding profession. While successful, it has ...

Resident opposed to TJX center

DEAR EDITOR: I am also a narrow-minded resident of Lordstown. This is why. This property is in two parcels, divided by Hallock Young Road. TJX would close the entrance to Hallock Young Road, thus closing off the access to the main road, Bailey Road, creating a detour for residents and ...

Immigration solution

DEAR EDITOR: According to multiple reference sources, 15 million children in this country live in poverty. That is 21 percent of all children in the U.S., according to the Federal Poverty Threshold established by the U.S. Government. Rates are highest among blacks, Latinos and American ...

Animal welfare is about the animals

DEAR EDITOR: There are many animal welfare groups between Mahoning and Trumbull counties. As someone who has volunteered, donated to or helped with fundraisers for quite a few groups in the past few years, I have seen they don’t always seem to get along with each other. One group doesn’t ...

Why be disagreeable?

DEAR EDITOR: I had a heated one-way chastising during a conversation among co-workers involving an individual who wasn’t part of the conversation. The conversation involved all the news around Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal and all the other lowest common denominators (or LCDs) who want ...
