Letters to the Editor

Valley’s seen more job loss than just Delphi, GM

DEAR EDITOR: Delphi retirees are getting what they are entitled to under the law. They receive the correct amount from the PBGC. The GM union contract agreement topped off union workers not the government. If Rep. Tim Ryan gets any special favor for Delphi salary, then he should fight just as ...

It took sacrifice to fight for our republic

This is my country — land that I love. Always, I was reminded of my duty to remember that phrase. During our struggle for equity, which is still incomplete, no one in our house was ever allowed to take a backseat. Pullman porter grandfather had involved us in funding for the Freedom Riders, ...

Cancer awareness about more than prevention

DEAR EDITOR: My name is George. I was married to my beautiful and perfect wife, Joan, for 51 1/2 years. Joan was a 17-year cancer survivor. In the spring of 2013, Joan was feeling tired. We had our checkups the first week of June 2013. We were told she had A-fib. She was getting more tired ...

Sound off!

Good news: GM is building a new plant and more jobs. Bad news: more wetland and young forest habitat loss. Putting wetlands elsewhere does not help the area where they originated. Loss of flora and fauna cannot be picked up and moved. The loss of young growth forest also impacts song birds, ...

Renewable energy best solution for the future

DEAR EDITOR: The recent letter about U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan was off the mark, and in fact, not even in the outer ring of truth. Written by a natural gas fan club, with the misnomer Consumer Energy Alliance, it ignores the fact that wind and solar energy are cheaper today than any fossil fuel, ...

Rep. Tim Ryan offers strong energy solutions

DEAR EDITOR: It’s unfortunate U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan still isn’t a Democratic presidential candidate, if only because his energy solutions for ensuring our access to American-made energy while protecting our environment are among the most sensible, realistic and beneficial to working families. ...

Electoral college is a legitimate system

DEAR EDITOR: My question is: Is it ignorance of or contempt for our Constitution that fuels the movement to abolish the Electoral College? Hillary Clinton blamed the Electoral College for her stunning defeat in the 2016 presidential election in her latest memoirs, “What Happened.” Some ...

Senators must recuse themselves from trial

DEAR EDITOR: We are about to witness the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump, duly elected 45th president of these United States. Two of the senators who will act as jurors in the case have stated emphatically they will support the defendant, and because of their bias they must recuse ...

Sound off!

Someone commented under the article regarding MetroParks not obtaining land in Braceville about the 1,600 homes’ waste flowing into the river from the Meadowbrook area. We will not have parks nor economic development along the Mahoning River until this area has AFFORDABLE sewer and ...

Mistake was made; now make amends

DEAR EDITOR: I would like to offer some thoughts regarding the recent wanton destruction of city / public property — cutting down healthy, long-standing oak trees adjacent to the Women’s Park. It is maddening and frustrating to see such disregard for the years of dedication and hard work ...

Questions remain about Enterprise Park

DEAR EDITOR: Questions remain regarding the proposed Enterprise Park development. In addition to destroying critical flood plains and degrading water quality, concerns should be addressed before a single tree is cut. Is Mercy Health committed? It has been reported Mercy Health has not ...

Robins Theatre too similar to Packard

DEAR EDITOR: We have Packard Music Hall, so why have two? When the news broke of the Robins Theatre being renovated, I was so excited. Memories of a happier time spent watching countless movies with friends and family had me anticipating its rebirth. But what I got is another Packard Music ...

Followers disregard Trump’s disrespect

DEAR EDITOR: I am an old-fashioned guy when it comes to evaluating people. It’s not hard to know right from wrong. It’s not hard to do right from wrong if you are honest with yourself. When Trump followers disregard President Donald Trump’s lack of respect for the rule of law (Mueller ...

President’s actions justified impeachment

DEAR EDITOR: How can Republicans and Trump supporters sleep? The NRA has taken millions from Russians, so taking money from the NRA is taking money from Russia. Any Republican who has taken NRA money for their political campaign is guilty in their own political campaign. When you ask a ...

Recognize and honor our police officers

DEAR EDITOR: In observance of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Thursday, this is to recognize the bravery, honor and integrity of our nation’s law enforcement officers, on behalf of Trumbull Regional Medical Center. These courageous men, women and K-9s who protect and serve our communities ...

Sound off!

Isn’t it funny how when tax levies are discussed, the first thing they always want to cut are police and fire? You never know how important they are until you’re in a bad situation and needing help. Thank you to all 911 dispatchers, first responders, firefighters and police officers for ...

Preserve all history, even when it’s ugly

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to the Tribune Chronicle’s Dec. 26, 2019 editorial titled, “It is time to erect new statues.” It’s too bad many believe history should be erased. Our past is not always pretty — sometimes it’s actually ugly — but it should always be ...

Lethal injection drugs can be found

DEAR EDITOR: Our governor has said several times that the state cannot find a source of drugs that meet the legal requirements for execution in Ohio. How is it that junkies can find drugs easily enough that meet the requirement of death? Surely the state can get the drugs used by ...

Soros, Dems have wrong intentions

DEAR EDITOR: George Soros, one of the 29 richest men in the world, donated in 2017 80 percent, $18 billion, to his organization called “Open Society Foundation.” Has a nice sound to it, doesn’t it? But he is known also to fund the group Antifa, who terrorizes people at conservative ...

Shame on powers that be over tree removal

Shame on powers that be over tree removal DEAR EDITOR: One can honestly state that throughout the city, there are few public places that provide a space of reflection and contemplation, but the grounds around the Women’s Park next to the Packard House was one such place. I went there ...
