Letters to the Editor

Virus response by today’s generation

DEAR EDITOR: The kids growing up in the 1930s and 1940s answered the call and fought a war. The ones who stayed home went to the factories and created the arsenal of democracy. We call them the Greatest Generation. In the 1960s and 1970s, the hippies and peaceniks marched by the millions to ...

BLM, Antifa, Dems dangerous machines

DEAR EDITOR: Black Lives Matter, or BLM, is not a racial justice or civil rights organization. If it were, as the name suggests, they would help black lives everywhere. You’d think they’d start in Chicago, where as of this writing, 428 murders have occurred in 2020. The overwhelming ...

DeWine will do down as our worst governor

DEAR EDITOR: I believe the consensus is that Gov. Mike DeWine is destroying the state of Ohio because he doesn’t know what he is doing. He and his former director of health have been marvels of misinformation about the pandemic and how to frighten people. He probably thinks he is a hero ...

Left’s ‘dependency’ agenda hurts nation

DEAR EDITOR: It is not about Black Lives Matter anymore. When protests turn to burning buildings, looting, vandalizing, defacing, taking over six blocks in Seattle, taking down and destroying our monuments and our American history, this needs to stop. These are anarchists; we do not govern by ...

Program cuts will affect poor, elderly

DEAR EDITOR: The majority of Americans including Republicans do not want Social Security benefits to be cut, but 95 percent of House and Senate Republicans do want benefits to be cut. There also are a lot of Republicans that would love to abolish Social Security and every other program that ...

Sound off!

A big thank you goes to Gillette Nursing Home in Warren for coordinating Mothers Day and Fathers Day drop-offs, window visits and the Fourth of July drive-thru with a police escort. Bravo! — Niles On July 18 the Tribune Chronicle published a picture of “Women for Trump Meet.” It showed ...

Bazetta should find other revenue sources

DEAR EDITOR: Bazetta trustees are again going to try to get levies passed. Why haven’t they enacted traffic cameras to keep our police safe and generate revenue for the police department and for the general fund, which could be used for roads? They also could enact a permissive tax on ...

Liberty must improve its ‘Leopard Pride’

DEAR EDITOR: “Liberty Leopard Pride” is a phrase often used in Liberty to express our feelings toward our sports teams, our schools and our community: pride in the winning ways and sportsmanship exhibited by our sports teams; pride in our progressive student body, curriculum and physical ...

‘Maskophobe’ group could offer insight

DEAR EDITOR: Has the White House or Gov. Mike DeWine thought of recruiting maskophobes — those who reject mask-wearing — for focus groups to find out what their thinking is? Why not accept at face value the rationales offered by the maskophobes themselves? Well, maskophobes amount to ...

Electing Dems will drive up cost of living

DEAR EDITOR: If Democrats win in November, here is what to expect: higher taxes, even on your 401k. First, you lost your pension, now they want more of this. They will change the retirement rules for you in the middle of the game. The Green New Deal will take the “green” right out of ...

All should care about Alzheimer’s research

DEAR EDITOR: About $2.8 billion — that represents the current annual federal funding for Alzheimer’s research. Do we need more? Absolutely, if we are going to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. This annual federal investment represents a fraction of the cost of caring for those with ...

Sound off!

It would be nice to hear what’s going on in Trumbull County from the hard-to-fake office at the receiving end of the pandemic: county coroner. Are the numbers of coronavirus deaths understated? The coroner could tell us if a huge upswing in deaths in recent months is normal around here. A ...

Support those who protect our nation

DEAR EDITOR: On July 4th, in Newton Falls, we saw just how far our national pride has fallen. Our community has been the focal point for fireworks and festivities including hourlong parades and weeklong carnivals in past years. Due to COVID-19 and wide-spread rioting, 2020 finds most ...

Franchise name change ridiculous

DEAR EDITOR: I’ve been a Washington football fan for more than 50 years. I am completely against this ridiculous move. The name was actually an honor to Native Americans. With the moves the NFL is making, I believe they’re going down the drain. I hope they go bankrupt. Personally, I’ll ...

Language of others has been worse

DEAR EDITOR: I received mail from a progressive liberal who is, of course, not a fan of our president and delights in sending articles and Biden bumper stickers to me anonymously. I would share my thoughts if this person would write without being cowardly and sign his or her name and ...

America is sinking with Trump at helm

DEAR EDITOR: We need to realize still waters run deep. I can’t recall the events that happened between 2016 through 2020 as anything I have ever experienced in my life. Never could I have imagined such a turnover in America’s leadership today. Fortunately, I missed the horrible disaster ...

Masks can save both lives and livelihoods

DEAR EDITOR: One action that each Ohioan can take to limit the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a face covering whenever they are in public. Wearing a face covering is easy to do and a common courtesy to others. Yes, we understand that most people don’t enjoy wearing a mask, but it’s a ...

Parents are being asked to do too much

DEAR EDITOR: Regarding the Tribune Chronicle July 5 poll question on whether the U.S. should create a national Garden of Heroes, I ask this: Who pays for the statues, the grounds, the landscaping, the employees to maintain the garden? Before we answer this question, I think a few of the cost ...

Sound off!

Regarding the interchange at state Route 11 and Niles Vienna Road, I think it’s a very good idea. It will take some stress off Tibbetts-Wick Road. It’s always backed up. Also, soon the Shepherd of the Valley will add more traffic. It’s a small community of itself. — Niles This ...

Diehl decision part of world we don’t understand

DEAR EDITOR: It is difficult these days to decipher in the media what is true and what is opinion. Journalists used to report facts and let readers decide what side to take up. It certainly doesn’t feel that way any longer. The whole story isn’t always what we get. This applies to ...
