Letters to the Editor

Forgotten dates doesn’t mean it’s a lie

DEAR EDITOR: This is in regards to a previous letter. The writer doesn’t know all women and about being abused. I was in Ford’s position 52 years ago. At 18, I was forced down in the front seat of a car. I was in the Air Force living at the Barracks on a base in the south. When I went ...

All Americans should support movements

DEAR EDITOR: You recently published a letter titled “Democrats reap what they sow from election” that I found to be inaccurate. I would like to dispute several points made by the author. The #MeToo movement was created 10 years ago by Tarana Burke of Harlem in response to a young girl ...

Sound off!

So 70 percent of respondents to a Tribune Chronicle poll credit Trump for the current gas prices? I’d guess when the prices were at $3, the same respondents were blaming him? Of course not! And when gas climbs again next year, Trump will not be blamed by these folks. Credit for only the good ...

Report solutions, not just complaints

DEAR EDITOR: Early in life I was taught if you point out a problem, be prepared to suggest a solution. Otherwise keep it to yourself. I’ve also heard it said, “Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.” These are wise words that are relevant today in many ways. Other quotes ...

Support veterans with peace, not war

DEAR EDITOR: The best way to honor our veterans is to stop sending our young men and women into constitutionally congressionally undeclared wars — see article 1 88 (11). The last war authorized by congress was against Hitler and Tojo. These undeclared wars and the resulting carnage are ...

Why no health care coverage for all?

DEAR EDITOR: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ... let those words sink in. We argue about health care in this country like it is some sort of extra, some sort of commodity that is an exception, only for those that have earned it. Life is one of the “unalienable rights” set ...

Letter showed hatred of non-Democrats

DEAR EDITOR: In the Nov. 18 edition of the Tribune Chronicle, there were a few statements made in one of the Letters to the Editor that I should like to comment on and refute as well. In the 1940s and 1950s, my parents were staunch Democrats; my late wife and I were mostly Democratic ...

Which side of bench will you stand?

DEAR EDITOR: Thank goodness the telephone solicitation for politicians has stopped. How they choose people for a party is questionable to me. I do not vote a party line. I vote for individual people I feel will serve us best. I believe there are good people in both parties. I do regret ...

Representing us or just themselves?

DEAR EDITOR: U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan blames the president for the loss of a shift at GM Lordstown. The price of gasoline went so low that people went to bigger cars and trucks. Ryan and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown ignored President Trump when he made a stop at the Vienna airport. They claim to ...

Sound off!

Does Ohio need a “stand your ground” law? Sure! Weekly we read about innocent Ohioans being indicted and sent off to prison for defending themselves — not! Ohio’s prosecutors have warned us: This law (used by thugs like Zimmerman) is more likely to be used by drug dealers to “off” ...

Thank a veteran for serving the country

DEAR EDITOR: Today is Veterans Day. The holiday began when the fighting of World War I, known as the “Great War” and “the war to end all wars” ceased on the eleventh hour of Nov. 11, 1918. Armistice Day was declared by President Woodrow Wilson on Nov. 11, 1919, when he stated, “... ...

Love is always more powerful than hate

DEAR EDITOR: Recently, the good and decent people of the Mahoning and Shenango Valleys displayed their true colors. A huge crowd, comprised of individuals of all faiths, ethnicities and political persuasions gathered together at Temple El Emeth, as one region, to mourn the deaths of the 11 ...

Newspaper’s photo was misleading

DEAR EDITOR: The decades-long child abuse perpetrated by Roman Catholic priests is deplorable. The Tribune Chronicle’s decision to post a large picture depicting the interior of St. Mary Church on the front page of Wednesday’s paper adjacent to the article reporting on the priest abuse ...

Immigrants get more than Americans

DEAR EDITOR: When I went to the welfare office to apply for a Medicaid card, I waited for hours because I really need my medication. They sent me to Social Security, and I waited there for three hours. After I finally talked to a person, they sent me a letter saying I make too much ...

Liberals, take notice of Brazilian election

DEAR EDITOR: A liberal news network, France 24, on PBS, covered the results of the Brazilian Presidential Election. Conservative Jair Bolsonaro won with 58 percent of the votes. In his acceptance speech, he vowed to defend the Constitution, democracy and freedom. His opponent also ...

Sleep is critical to having good health

DEAR EDITOR: When it comes to health, most people focus on diet and exercise. Both are very important, but something that often doesn’t get acknowledged for its health benefits is sleep. With our hectic schedules, we kick sleep to the curb, staying up and studying or ...

Sound off!

I get so angry every time we have to pay our property taxes. Most of the money we pay goes toward schools, and in Warren, the schools still are receiving poor grades. Terrible! — Warren Frequent TV commercials are on Medicare advantage, and we receive five or six Medicare advantage ...

An election quiz for people of Niles

Dear Editor: Who is worse at doing their job for the people of Niles ä the city of Niles or the Niles schools? Start with city hall. The city is still under state control, so why did the city have a mausoleum built at $30,000 without the city council or the cemetery board knowing about ...

Cordray, Brown and Ryan stand for jobs and health care

DEAR EDITOR: The unemployment rate throughout the country has reached 3.7 percent. Here in Trumbull County, the rate remains at 5.2 percent. We rank 84 out of 88 counties in the state. People believe the jobs that Trump promised will come, but they won't be materializing. Even worse, ...

Support Klammer for Appeals Court

DEAR EDITOR: I am voting for Darya Klammer for Eleventh District Court of Appeals because we need her experience and integrity on our court. In her 20-year career, she has had a clean record as an attorney and magistrate. Her opponent previously has been sanctioned and fined. She has 15 years ...
