Letters to the Editor

Nation’s job loss connected to politics

DEAR EDITOR: The turmoil that we are witnessing in our nation today is connected to job loss. Millions of jobs have been lost due to robots, foreign competition, relocation and trade agreements. The result has been a devastating emotional effect on the American worker. You can make the ...

Dems say one thing, act another way

DEAR EDITOR: In a November Tribune Chronicle, a letter writer from McDonald should have checked his facts regarding the Ukraine / Trump events. The same day, a Patrick Buchanan column was published, titled “Where are the high crimes?” An examination of the facts about the Ukraine ...

Recession will be coming soon

DEAR EDITOR: Monopoly is a game that most have either played or heard of. There are a few socialistic lessons that never seem to be learned that Monopoly shows. One is that real-life economy is not a game, but has real consequences. Games are about winning and losing; life is about learning ...

Charges against good Samaritan mortifying

DEAR EDITOR: I told my family in California about this kind lady in Girard who tried to help a stray dog she found running loose in a heavy traffic area, no less. When I sent my family your Nov. 22 article about it, they were saddened and mortified that a good Samaritan, Lisa Marchese, could ...

Remember those who died at Pearl Harbor

DEAR EDITOR, Dec. 7, 1941 — the attack on Pearl Harbor — was a day that has remained in infamy. Very few service members who personally remember that day are still among us. The American Legion Auxiliary encourages everyone to do what they can to keep Pearl Harbor a part of our national ...

Democrats make fools of themselves

DEAR EDITOR: The Adam Schiff impeachment inquiry is finally over. None of the witnesses said President Trump did anything wrong. These were not fans of the president. Now they have three choices to make. The first is to drop this circus and get on with life. This won’t happen as the ...

Sound off!

It’s a truly unconstitutional speed / money trap. Weathersfield began its speed camera program, yet no posted speed limit signs are in either direction on Warren Avenue from DeForest to Wadell Park. I will not pay a ticket when I don’t know the speed limit. — Warren A Fowler writer ...

Lordstown Motors plan not realistic

DEAR EDITOR: As optimistic and enthusiastic headlines abound concerning the viability of Lordstown Motors, I hate to be the pessimist in the room, but it seems to me the exuberance is completely unfounded. One need not spend tens of thousands of dollars on consultants to come to the ...

Chase should keep Warren branch open

DEAR EDITOR: The west side, like all of Trumbull County, has lost so much: G.E., Peerless Electric, Denman Tire, Western Reserve High School, the original Thomas Strip, etc., and now Chase Bank will be closing its West Market Street location. It will be sorely missed by many westsiders. ...

Family provides great service to Warren

DEAR EDITOR: I just wanted to thank the Economos family and its Light Up the Square organization that has been responsible for all the decorations and lights in courthouse square for several years now. They do a beautiful job every year, and they receive little or no recognition for it. I ...

DeCristofaro’s plan shows arrogance

DEAR EDITOR: The arrogance of some people is truly amazing. Former Trumbull County Engineer David DeCristofaro was convicted of theft involving the engineer’s office, pleaded guilty and resigned, according to Tribune Chronicle archives. Now he wants to return to office. What is his motive? ...

Fining Samaritan was bad judgment

DEAR EDITOR: The “Good Deed” item Nov. 22 was really disappointing. To see this happen to a person who, out of the compassion of her heart, wanted to help an animal and got prosecuted for it. I have witnessed some ridiculous acts by local government officials, but I’ve got to admit, ...

History of Republican shenanigans repeated

DEAR EDITOR: The “shenanigans” are on full display when it comes to “truth and facts” by the outpouring of lies from the White House and the Republicans in both Houses. I suppose if Richard Nixon were alive today, Republicans probably would try to portray him as a “saint,” but ...

Response to letter ‘Stop insults…’

DEAR EDITOR: Last week’s letter “Stop insults, look for compromise” responding to my letter “Democrats: 1960 vs. 2020” totally missed the point. All of these comments were made by the Democratic nominees at their debates. There is no debate on this point. Why these facts were ...

Ohio legislation is a victory for ignorance

DEAR EDITOR: Trumbull County has the dubious distinction of harboring the only Democratic state representatives, Micheal O’Brien and Gil Blair, who recently joined all Republicans in shamelessly supporting legislation deceptively called “The Student Religious Liberty Act.” In effect, it ...

Portman stays quiet on role with Ukraine

DEAR EDITOR: This week it was all eyes on the House Intelligence Committee as witnesses publicly testified during the impeachment hearings. Three Ohio Republicans — Jim Jordan, Mike Turner and Brad Wenstrup — jockeyed for the limelight, but one Ohio Republican has been nowhere to be found: ...

Sound off!

I think the 2,800 Bristol residents who did not respond to the county sanitary engineer’s survey on water and sewer were perfectly clear. They were not at all interested. Why waste any more time? The Tribune Chronicle’s Saturday, Nov. 23, “onion” was ridiculous. — Gustavus Thank ...

How Pilgrims learned capitalism

DEAR EDITOR: If you watch television or read the newspaper on a regular basis, you witness a struggle for the soul of America. This political battle is between those who believe ownership and production of goods and services should be distributed by the state or central government and those ...

Be thankful always despite the injustice

DEAR EDITOR: As I look around at our world today and at all of the chaos, wars, hatred, injustice, the ugliness of bigotry, and just evil in some people; it makes me sad. Everyday it seems as though children are being kidnapped, tortured or murdered. Their innocence has been taken away ...

Restroom upgrades needed at the Amp

DEAR EDITOR: I have attended concerts in Mentor and Cuyahoga Falls featuring the same cover bands who perform at the Warren Community Amphitheatre. This summer, the popular original band Gin Blossoms played in Mentor to a huge crowd. Sanitary portable toilets were provided at both venues and ...
