Workers disjointed

Preserve Ohio’s nuclear power plants

DEAR EDITOR: This is in response to Ron Selak’s April 23 article in which Bill Siderewicz compared nuclear power to Netflix and Blockbuster. I’m not a nuclear engineer, but even I can recognize how crazy it is to compare Ohio’s power grid to an online video service. I support keeping ...

What word will they understand?

DEAR EDITOR: When I taught my dog to sit, I said sit. It took two times. When I told my children with a stern voice “No,” it meant no. No that took one time. What word would the Niles Board of Education understand, that 69 percent of voters said no to raising our taxes to pay for ...

Writer demands impartial journalism

DEAR EDITOR: The April 8, 2019, Tribune Chronicle’s front page headline “Democrats may need to court white men” certainly did its job. It grabbed my attention. The headlined article by the Associated Press discussed how the Democrats are working to find a candidate who could cut deep ...

Questioning the work of U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan
