Area lags behind America DEAR EDITOR: I have lived and worked in Warren my whole life and have seen many businesses, of which I have been a part, close. I now run a business in Warren and am treasurer of my church. When is everyone going to wake up? We have lost thousands of jobs, ...

Stop relying on social media for news DEAR EDITOR: I write this letter thankful for newspapers who still appreciate people who take the time to sit down and gather their thoughts and put them together on paper so others can read and think about them for more than the 15 seconds it ...

Spend new Warren tax money fairly DEAR EDITOR: We the citizens of Warren voted and passed the tax increase that was asked of us. Now let’s see what will happen with what we have entrusted to our administration. We know that police, fire and roads are part of what the monies will ...

Letters to the editor

Delphi salaried retirees still fighting DEAR EDITOR: I had to take a deep breath and count to 10 before writing this. I read the recent article about the visit to the UAW hall by Jay Williams, former Youngstown Mayor working for the Obama administration. In the article, Mr. ...

Elderly drivers should be retested DEAR EDITOR: We have all been there, driving down Fifth Avenue in Youngstown, when suddenly we come across a vehicle going 10 miles per hour below the speed limit and swerving across lanes of traffic. Once we have the opportunity to safely pass them, we ...

Get on the Trump train

DEAR EDITOR: As a godly person, I hope to convince people this country is going in the wrong direction. The media, Hillary, the Obamas and their followers are evil people trying to destroy Trump, a man who wants to make America great again and work for the American people. They are evil ...

Don’t fall for Trump sideshow

DEAR EDITOR: In this Nov. 8 election, with Ohio being a key state, Ohio voters could ultimately determine our next President. Donald Trump running for the Presidency would be humorous, if it didn't have such serious consequences for our country, and the world, if he were to win. Here is ...

Trump would make us proud again

DEAR EDITOR: I was born April 25, 1924, in Warren. I recently returned in July 2016 to my beloved state, Ohio, for a very important reason, to help Donald Trump carry Ohio and win our Presidential election on Nov. 8 to save America for us citizens! Years ago, I was elected to the Ohio ...

Vote Trump to protect jobs

DEAR EDITOR: Governor John Kasich, R-Ohio, was recently in the national media in Washington, D.C., working with President Obama trying to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership, TPP, before the election. According to CNN, Kasich said he feels it's his "responsibility and duty as a leader," no ...

Left opinions will influence my vote

DEAR EDITOR: As the election draws near, I want to thank those who have taken the opportunity to enlighten me with their political views. I am now aware of those who feel shutting down the anti-right media is acceptable because their political views differ from the Democrats. Your party ...

Trump is true patriot

DEAR EDITOR: I attended the Donald Trump rally in Geneva recently. The traffic was heavy and the long line to get in was daunting. People from many walks of life were in line. There were teenagers, bikers, the well dressed, retired, working men and as many women. Despite what the ...

Trump unfit to be president

DEAR EDITOR: Donald Trump is unfit to be President. With Election Day right around the corner, I can't help but think about all that is at stake this year. Working people know that the path to prosperity starts with electing candidates who support a raising wages agenda. We have the ...

Stein more qualified than Trump, Clinton

DEAR EDITOR: There is a third party presidential candidate that, in my opinion, is strongly coming into play and who is much more qualified and trustworthy than Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Her name is Dr. Jill Stein, and she is the Green party presidential candidate. Research Jill ...

Johnson is better option for president

DEAR EDITOR: Many voters are disgusted with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Is this the best we have to offer - two old fools arguing over which one is more despicable? Fortunately, we have a better candidate, Gary Johnson, two-term governor from New Mexico, experienced, competent and ...

Question Trump’s character

DEAR EDITOR: If Trump hadn't been unmasked as a liar before, his need to explain what we all know - that Obama was born in the U.S. - should be proof. So, true to form, he tried to lie his way out of his responsibility for the "birther" movement. Even though he stuck to that lie for ...

Vote Trump for jobs

DEAR EDITOR: Once again, we have been misled by our labor and union leadership. First, we were told NAFTA will create jobs in America. Huffington Post reported: "Such outcomes include a staggering $181 billion U.S. trade deficit with NAFTA partners Mexico and Canada and the related ...

Election letters to the editor

Trump will rid  politics as usual DEAR EDITOR: What kind of a person would vote for Hillary Clinton? I believe it’s someone who wants the corruption in Washington to continue; or only those with their head in the sand. Donald Trump at least gives us a chance to rid our nation of ...

Letters to the editor

Voters can’t afford Mathews bond issue DEAR EDITOR: I would like the Mathews School District voters to ask the school board where the money is. The state income tax that I, and a lot of voters, went door to door to pass was supposed to keep them from coming back to the property ...

Election letters to the editor

Make judicial vote count Nov. 8 DEAR EDITOR: Given the amount of media coverage devoted to the presidential election this year, many Ohioans may believe that the race for the Oval Office is the only one on the ballot in November. Not so. In fact, I would argue that there are ...

Injection well aid definitely needed

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to the article “Vienna Seeks Injection Well Aid.” To say Vienna has asked state lawmakers to help with this issue is an understatement. We have pleaded for help defending our township against the dangers of toxic waste injection wells for at least two ...
