Letters to the Editor

Writer shows disdain for Donald Trump

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to a writer whose name, out of courtesy, I will withhold. Several weeks ago, I wrote an informative letter to the editor, but obviously it was contrary to her liberal opinions. I am of the belief that everyone should read these letters at least a couple of ...

Teachers unions must stay strong

DEAR EDITOR: Recently, there have been a number of attacks on labor unions across this country. Right-to-work supporters would love to see labor unions disbanded. Those who support unions must band together to protect the efforts of these organizations. Recently, the Tribune Chronicle ...

Med-assisted treatment red flag

DEAR EDITOR: It’s wonderful to read that Warren Municipal Court Judge Thomas Gysegem has advocated for a new probation officer to lead a proposed medication-assistance treatment program, or MAT, through the court. But there is a red flag in reading Dr. Martina Moore’s statement that MAT ...

Make Americans great again

DEAR EDITOR: During his campaign and after his election, President Trump has built a platform on making America great again. Rather than making America great, we should focus on making the American people great again. Our society has suffered from mistrust, declining family values, ...

Letter of faith

Editor’s note: This letter, originally published Aug. 4, is being rerun because a sentence was inadvertently omitted. The Tribune Chronicle regrets the error. DEAR EDITOR: In the Star Trek movie, Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise, said, “Space is the final frontier.” In ...

Fight against legalizing marijuana

DEAR EDITOR: On July 20 the Tribune Chronicle carried a story about Congressman Timothy Ryan saying marijuana should be legal in all 50 states. Marijuana is recognized as a gateway to addiction. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, marijuana is a Schedule I drug. It has serious ...

How wrong was vote for Niles mayor?

DEAR EDITOR: How wrong was the vote taken last week by Niles precinct committee members to pick the new Niles mayor? It was run by the head of the Trumbull County Democratic Party. Here are a few questions. Why was the vote for Niles mayor held about a month later than it should have ...

Fellow writer spreads unproven theories

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to a Letter to the Editor titled ‘Deep State goes after Trump’ from Elizabeth Balson. The letter is full of conspiracy theories and is misleading. The writer ranted about Hillary Clinton, corruption in the FBI and a theory that the “Washington ...

Trouble finding help for struggling couple

DEAR EDITOR: Some time ago, a woman came in to my place of business and explained that she and her husband are homeless. She offered to work to pay for a one-night stay. I provided the couple with water and coffee and began making contacts. I was shocked at how difficult it would be to find a ...

Clean up dangerous grass clippings

DEAR EDITOR: I have lived here many years and don’t understand why there isn’t something done about homeowners leaving their grass in the street? Case in point, the motorcyclist who injured himself after going over wet grass on the highway. Also, the grass has a way of getting in the ...

‘Deep State’ is going after Donald Trump

DEAR EDITOR: For those who are not up to date with the laborious work of Judicial Watch, a conservative activist group, it has been successful in exposing the Deep State’s and the Washington, D.C., establishment’s very deceptive and egregious actions taken against President Donald Trump. ...

An apology needed from Trump voters

DEAR EDITOR: We are all Americans, and differences of opinions whether right or wrong should not divide us. The key to correcting our mistakes and repairing the damage is to admit to having made them and to work together to correct them and to make sure we don’t make them again. In this era ...

Trump has shown treason against US

DEAR EDITOR: As far as I am concerned, President Donald Trump already showed treason against America. When you stand before the world and say you believe Russia more than America’s intelligence agencies, that is treason against your own country if you are the leader of that country. Our ...

Democrats using kids as political pawns

DEAR EDITOR: Former President Barack Obama and other previous presidents used the same immigration policy dealing with illegals crossing the border as President Donald Trump was using. It was not his policy, but one put in place in 1997. Previous presidents put children in cages and in ...

Evidence shows Russian involvement

DEAR EDITOR: President Trump is right when he calls the Mueller probe a disgrace; however, the disgrace is on him and his Russian Republican party for having colluded with Russia on the 2016 election. That action is what caused the probe. His firing of the FBI director then saying to the ...

An update from the Warren city auditor

DEAR EDITOR: A 2018 first-half financial review for January through June shows Warren’s general fund collected $14,771,987.59, while total general fund expenses equaled $12,353,637.95 in that same period. The first half saw a monthly revenue average of $2.46 million and a monthly expense ...

Justice picks should recuse

DEAR EDITOR: Shame on Majority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell for asserting that the current president’s Supreme Court Justice nominee will be voted upon this fall, with neither delay nor the generally required 60 senatorial votes. McConnell has invoked the Biden rule and will utilize the ...

Stop Mother Earth frackers

DEAR EDITOR: The recent toxic gas leak by ProFrac and resultant community evacuation in Girard should be a wake-up call for us all. Everything about fracking is inherently toxic, including the propaganda supporting this imminent and growing danger to our environment and public health. ...

Look beyond differences

DEAR EDITOR: Another weekend comes to a close on the heels of three shootings involving police, one officer is dead and three are injured, while in Chicago an officer shoots an apparently armed black man, touching off two days of riots and protests over police-involved shootings. Oddly ...

Don’t expect job creation yet

DEAR EDITOR: Any cuts to Social Security would be devastating to millions of Americans. Retired Americans are struggling to afford rising food, energy and health care costs. Congress should be working to strengthen Social Security instead of trying to cut it and privatize it. Medicare and ...
