Letters to the Editor

Time’s up to fund Ohio school districts fairly

DEAR EDITOR: Republican control of Ohio state government has failed constituents in many areas, but nowhere more than in educating our kids. Ohio Republicans have controlled the governorship and both houses of the state legislature for 19 of the 24 years since the Ohio school funding system ...

Ex-county supervisor deserves an apology

DEAR EDITOR: I read the April 8 Tribune Chronicle article about former Trumbull County maintenance supervisor Roy Elza’s comments from the April 7 Trumbull County commissioners’ meeting regarding his retirement. I also listened to the audio of the meeting. In listening to the meeting, ...

Freedom is hard to accept by many people in America

DEAR EDITOR: I’ve spent 40-plus years explaining, providing guidance to clients many rules and regulations applicable to running a business, specifically applicable to “employer-employee relationship.” Often mandates are confusing, difficult to adhere to, centered on the fact they are ...

Sound off!

From The National Audubon Society, June 5, 2020: “The (Trump) administration is churning out policies that make it easier to kill birds, pollute our air and water and endanger our health. … It is clear that the (Trump) administration is only accelerating its efforts to shred valued ...

Don’t blame Biden for past blunders

DEAR EDITOR: This is for citizens who, like a recent letter writer, bemoan President Biden’s lack of physicality — although Biden takes the ramp pretty well. They cry out that Biden cannot plan, despite his massive infrastructure strategy. They blame President Biden for everything. They ...

Don’t let our country become a dictatorship

DEAR EDITOR: I have previously said that the biggest threat to democracy is voter suppression. I think it is ironic that Donald Trump and his followers ranted that the election was rigged. The Republican party has worked hard for six years to suppress voters. I believe they are really upset ...

Listen to what Bible says about witchcraft

DEAR EDITOR: I was somewhat disturbed by the March 27 article regarding the paranormal and an area witch. Evidently you felt this article was newsworthy for the front page. I would add additional thought about paranormal and activities of witches as defined by the American College ...

Local senators must fight for constituents

DEAR EDITOR: In spite of their track record for responding in an untimely fashion, the Republican Supermajority has decided they are the people for the job when public health emergencies arise, and Valley Sens. Michael Rulli and Sandra O’Brien are no exceptions. The recent override of Gov. ...

Vaccine passport? Use your brains

DEAR EDITOR: Because Donald Trump was getting too close for comfort with the upcoming presidential election, the Democrats had to create a “diversion,” thus, COVID-19. Then they got the mainstream media on board to spin news and tell us all about the national death toll that is about to ...

Cancel culture ruins great United States

DEAR EDITOR: As a conservative Democrat, it saddens me that our wonderful United States of America has turned into the “Cancel culture capital of political correctness.” Whether it is some Dr. Seuss books not being published anymore, Disney putting offensive content warnings on 18 ...

Sound off!

There has been much talk about renaming Mosquito Lake after politicians or deceased people. Why not sell the naming rights like they do for baseball stadiums? Some of the great insect repellent companies might be interested. It could be called Cutter Lake or Deet Mosquito Lake. How about Off! ...

Rename Mosquito ‘Blue Water Lake’

DEAR EDITOR: There has been much in the news lately about renaming the lake west of Cortland. When I moved to the Mahoning River area in 1975, I got an invitation to a boat ride on the lake nearest to Howland Corners. “Oh,” I said, “Where is that?” “On Mosquito ...

No need for cul-de-sacs on Howland-Wilson Road

DEAR EDITOR: Why is ODOT insisting on a million dollar upgrade to the Howland Wilson interchange? Eliminating left hand turns at the intersection of Howland Wilson and state Route 82 will involve a lot of extra driving for people who live in that area and people who use that road ...

Hold Cantalamessa and Fuda accountable

DEAR EDITOR: The headline on the story about last week’s Trumbull County commissioner’s meeting implied a shouting match occurred between Niki Frenchko and Frank Fuda. I know better. Frenchko is rarely at fault in these battles, with self-defense her only option against Fuda. Frenchko ...

With Frenchko, we got a ‘red herring’

DEAR EDITOR: I am tiring of Trumbull County Commissioner Niki Frenchko referring to our Italian-American elected officials as the “Good Old Boys.” Which elected officials does she mean? Is she referring to Commissioner Mauro Cantalamessa or Auditor Adrian Biviano? Or maybe our ...

Witch hunt is over; Donald is found

DEAR EDITOR: Week after week, the Tribune Chronicle’s editorial pages are filled with letters expressing either admiration for, or disgust with, former President Donald Trump. Neither side can comprehend how the other side could possibly believe what it does. One thing, however, is ...

Jesus’ one solitary life was given for all of us

DEAR EDITOR: The sky is bluer, flowers blooming, air is fresher, weather is warming. Everything is rejuvenated with springtime. Easter is here. Some were rushing around shopping for the Easter day finery. Baskets and chocolate bunnies are bought for the children. Easter egg hunts and special ...

Sound off!

In last year’s commissioner race, a candidate told the Tribune we have “seen no progress in more than 25 years on enhancement of Mecca Circle, the Mosquito Lake shore area, lodging, restaurants or any other attractions in that area.” Why aren’t there restaurants and lodging overlooking ...

Park name should not be ‘Trump’

DEAR EDITOR: I was very interested to see that a certain state representative wants to change the name of the park (which is a wonderful facility, by the way) to honor former President Donald J. Trump. In his presentation, he stated that it was in honor of “all the things he has done ...

Struggling, coping make you stronger

DEAR EDITOR: An article on the front page of the newspaper about how General Motors closed its doors and families had to struggle caused me to write this letter. My husband was a “lifer” in the U.S. Marine Corps for 25 years. He put in many 14- and 15-hour days with no such thing as ...
