Letters to the Editor

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 ...

Consider Lordstown, then and now

DEAR EDITOR: I am a 72-year-old resident of Lordstown, born and raised here. My parents moved to Lordstown 85 years ago, and they rest in Lordstown cemetery now. I have been here through all the changes in our community. I have many friends here; and I hope we are still friends when the dust ...

TJX, a good neighbor for Lordstown?

DEAR EDITOR: Would you be considered a good neighbor if you built a house in the middle of a residential street? That is exactly what TJX is proposing with the zoning change. Lordstown doesn’t need more industrial land, we have hundreds of acres of industrial land available, just hundreds ...

Lordstown has sowed nothing

DEAR EDITOR: I’m dumbfounded, that Lordstown would let TJX slip away because of a handful of whining homeowners who can’t see past their backyards. I’m also disappointed in the mayor for not being more assertive in standing up for the village and for the economic impact that TJX would ...

Despite GM cuts, we will move on

DEAR EDITOR: The will and desire to go on is what really counts in adversity. Recent news of layoffs at the Lordstown General Motors plant wasn’t pleasant to hear. Regardless, the valley shall remain here forever. We have seen industry in the area come and go before. Mineral Ridge was big ...

‘Spare the rod’ is not always the answer

DEAR EDITOR: We continue to hear so-called experts sharply criticize young people today for their poor behavior. These critics believe the old saying, “Spare the rod, spoil the child” should be returned to child-rearing practices. Yes, school killings have been conducted by young ...

Time for the left to tell the truth

DEAR EDITOR: The shady left constantly cites Trump’s failure to condemn. Trump said, “There was blame on both sides.” Recently, a news program showed photos from Charlottesville. One picture showed a group dressed in black. During the scuffle, one individual clad in black had a weapon ...

Trump supporters mean and shallow

DEAR EDITOR: The cover photo on my Facebook page is of my mother and me. It was taken a few months before she died. On the day of that picture, our family was together, and my mother told us she would not take any more transfusion treatments. That is why I kept it. Each of my sisters have a ...

Focus on industrial worker safety

DEAR EDITOR: As an officer in the local chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers, my efforts are focused upon providing the industrial, maritime and construction workers a safe working environment that they are entitled to enjoy. Additionally, our country is at a competitive ...

Future is Lisha Pompili-Baumiller

DEAR EDITOR: On Tuesday the voters of Trumbull County will have a very important decision to make, a decision that could have a lasting impact on the finances and future of Trumbull County citizens for a very long time. On one hand, we have incumbent Frank Fuda, who has been aggressively ...

Bluedorn trivializes Family Court efforts

DEAR EDITOR: I applaud the Tribune Chronicle for the April 27 editorial âPico deserves vote in Family Court election,ã as well as the extensive detail in the article by Renee Fox disclosing the sharp differences of the candidates in the contested Democratic party in the Trumbull County ...
