Letters to the Editor

Be respectful of others as we navigate virus

DEAR EDITOR: It goes without saying that the past few months have been difficult on all of us. The challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic have required all of us to make personal sacrifices and adjustments in our family, work and social lives in the best interests of public health. In ...

All societies come with rules and limits

DEAR EDITOR: I am so tired of hearing protesters say their rights are being taken away. Does the temporary inconvenience of wearing a mask really take away your freedom? Compare your petty complaint to the sacrifice health care workers have to deal with every day. Those who won’t follow the ...

Let governors handle COVID in their states

DEAR EDITOR: There is so much criticism out there, but no one comes up with a better plan than the one they are criticizing. There are the demonstrators with their signs saying they want to get back to work. What good is it to get back to work if you don’t live to spend the ...

Pelosi keeps playing political games

DEAR EDITOR: The Congress passed a stimulus package and gave $1,200 to each American. However, if they would not have given the Kennedy Center and Planned Parenthood millions of dollars, they could have given Americans much more than $1,200 and would not have had to vote on another ...

Democrats show double standard

DEAR EDITOR: The #METOO movement is now dead. According to Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden says he did not commit sexual assault in 1993, and the woman accusing him, Tara Reade, is lying, even though her story is on record and was told by four other people. It is documented on the news, ...

Sound off!

My wife and I just returned from dining out for the first time. During the hour we were in the restaurant, only the staff and we wore face masks. Not one person coming in or leaving the restaurant wore a face mask. So much for having respect for others. — Warren As a taxpayer in Warren, I ...

Hospitals for rural areas deserve funding

DEAR EDITOR: The COVID-19 crisis has had serious repercussions on all areas of industry, and despite being a health care pandemic, our hospitals are at the forefront of the impact. Hospitals and medical providers all halted nonemergency procedures in order to preserve personal protective ...

Dark money must be kept out of politics

DEAR EDITOR: One person, one vote is a thing of the past. Dark money has changed that. While major players that changed things managed to keep their names out of the news, the only thing we now see is the re-election of President Donald Trump, who has pushed back government policies as we ...

WRTA’s good service lifts spirits of rider

DEAR EDITOR: I’m writing with a much deserved shout-out to the Western Reserve Transit Authority for its compassionate community service by offering continued bus transportation throughout these difficult times. Although WRTA’s fixed-route service had to be temporarily discontinued, it ...

Viewers should seek balanced news report

DEAR EDITOR: Ever wonder which of the different national television networks present the fairest news? Well, I have. The definition of fairest is “in accordance with the rules or standards; legitimate.” Periodically, I watch all major networks for several days to see how I think they are ...

Difficult to show respect to president

DEAR EDITOR: The premature opening of the states is kind of like throwing the covers back on a cold morning and hoping to make it to the bathroom before something bad happens. Donald Trump once again claimed to have absolute power. He decided to relinquish some of that power to the governor ...

Defeat Trump in the general election

DEAR EDITOR: The failures of the Trump administration responding to this COVID-19 crisis are too numerous to list. The vast majority of American people know this fact. Testing is the most basic failure. Trump continues to say, “If you want a test, you can get a test.” My doctor’s ...

Sound off!

Danny Lee Hill wins again. Miriam Fife and her family lose again. What a travesty of so-called justice. Hill should have been executed 30 years ago. I have the highest regard for Prosecutor Dennis Watkins, who has tried his best to have this case closed time and again, only to have the ...

National debt grows at the speed of light

DEAR EDITOR: Modern physics tells us that nothing in the universe can travel faster than the speed of light, which is 186,000 miles per second. That means light could circle the earth 7.5 times each second, reach the planet Mars in 14.2 minutes or get to the moon in 1.3 seconds. That is ...

Stand with Dr. Acton, not with extremists

DEAR EDITOR: Ohio’s Health Director Dr. Amy Acton has been an instrumental figure in keeping Ohioans safe during the coronavirus crisis. While we are still facing an unprecedented health crisis, her actions and directives have kept people safe. Last week, 58 Republicans wanted to limit Dr. ...

Listen to reminder from a past president

DEAR EDITOR: President G.W. Bush recently asked us all to remember a few things. I feel we all should embrace these words. “First, let us remember we have faced times of testing before. Following 9/11 I saw a great nation rise as one to honor the brave, to grieve with the grieving and to ...

Republican Hagan has our vote for Congress

DEAR EDITOR: I agree with Christina Hagan’s response to U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan in a recent article in the Tribune Chronicle and just about every thing Tim Ryan states. Right on Christina Hagan! We know our firefighters, EMTs, medical professionals and volunteers all need our respect, prayers ...

Ryan continues to follow AOC’s lead

DEAR EDITOR: U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Howland, is at it again. He must follow Congresswoman A.O.C. on her $2,000-a-month payout to every American. I am not opposed to giving people a helping hand, but this amount is outrageous. Not only does the Democrats’ new proposal call for more ...

Americans cannot be slaves of ignorance

DEAR EDITOR: As true Americans and as a supposedly Christian nation, we need to stand up for Godly principles. We need to know about the foundation of America. Can you imagine if we, as Christians, would unite, vote and take part in our government and stand up for our faith? If we want to ...

Sound off!

Thank you and God bless you, Mary Lou and Basil Jarrett, for the flags on the King Graves Road overpass. I always wondered who did this. God bless the U.S.A. — Vienna Elected leaders of Warren and Trumbull County continue to ask for voluntary layoffs and continue to seek ways to save ...
