Voters disenfranchised by Newton Falls council

DEAR EDITOR: If nothing else, the unprecedented voter turnout in the historic general election of Nov. 3 demonstrated that democracy in America is thankfully no longer a spectator sport. Yet unfortunately, not all of us had our votes honored at the local level; 385 voters, including me, in ...

Don’t be so quick to cancel Christmas

DEAR EDITOR: Sometimes people begrudge God for being generous to others. Protestants wanting to make reparations to black communities for their ancestors’ crimes of slavery is good. But knowing Jesus, God will most likely apply the “alms giving” for the benefit of their ancestors who ...

Make a clean repeal of nuclear bailout bill

DEAR EDITOR: It’s time to do a clean repeal of HB 6, the largest bribery, money-laundering scheme ever perpetrated against the people of the state of Ohio. A repeal would make things right with Ohioans who were asked to bail out the energy company. The bill was tied to bribing GOP lawmakers. ...

How global health affects all of us

DEAR EDITOR: On May 21, a bill was introduced to U.S. Senate. That bill is the Global Health Security and Diplomacy Act of 2020. Some may be confused about why that is even important to us when we have so much going on domestically. This bill, cosponsored by Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, is to ...

Handicap accessibility needed in community

DEAR EDITOR: I am writing to discuss the importance of creating a community that is accessible to all, including those who are disabled. The World Health Organization describes barriers as being “more than just physical obstacles.” The WHO describes these barriers as “factors in a ...

DEAR EDITOR: God of love and mercy in this season of Christmas we offer you our thanks and praise. Knowing our days are days you give us, let us rejoice and be glad. Believing our attitude toward life will bring us joy, that we want to spread words of peace to others that you give us ...

Shopper upset by parking ticket in city

DEAR EDITOR: It is a very trying time for many small business owners. Many of us are trying to buy local and support the downtown area. On Dec. 8, I planned to do just that. I went to High Street, had my hair done, parked my car in front of the business for a little over one hour. Then I ...

Warren sewer problem must be addressed

DEAR EDITOR: Well, the shoe is on the other foot, with the backup of sewage at a city building. My son has battled backup of raw sewage at his home for years. He now is on his fifth clothes dryer and new motor on his 3-year-old furnace. Where should he send the bill? As a Realtor for ...

Teachers deserve much appreciation

DEAR EDITOR: Teachers deserve gratitude for everything they are doing to educate our youth. Their retired colleagues from the Trumbull Retired Teachers Association honor and thank them for all they have done during this pandemic. These are truly difficult times in so many ways, and they ...

Don’t let attitude ruin Christmas for you

DEAR EDITOR: Our attitude can make the difference. Long ago when my children were little, I worked steel mill shifts, including many Christmases. I hated doing it. When I was a kid, my father, a truck driver, worked like crazy before Christmas so he could be off on that most special day. ...

Don’t believe liberal comments on Trump

DEAR EDITOR: Excellent letter from Rod Zeck. I’m glad to see some people in the Valley have their eyes and minds open. We cannot believe far-left liberal comments posted in our newspaper, and warn they’re nothing but lies. President Trump sincerely did an excellent job and will go down ...

Sound off!

We haven’t had that much snow over the past year, but when it does snow, Warren has handled taking care of the roads much better than in the prior eight years. I wonder what the change was? Good job, Safety Service Director Eddie Colbert and the operations team! — Warren If you’re ...

Stay alert to coming communism in US

DEAR EDITOR: Welcome to the beginning of communism America. When you are being told to worship, go out, stay at home, quarantine, socialize, gather, shop, dine, go to school and go to work, you are being conditioned — conditioned to view your freedoms as selfish if you refuse. COVID-19, ...

Mix of socialism and free market works

DEAR EDITOR: A Tribune Chronicle editorial said Tim Ryan needs to become less liberal and quit following Nancy Pelosi’s lead. Really? I thought Nancy Pelosi was a strong, smart woman who wasn’t afraid to stand up and confront a mean-spirited bully who happens to be President Donald ...

Declining eyesight another 2020 casualty

DEAR EDITOR: Between online schooling and electronic technology increasing in the classroom, vision skills are more important than ever. Extended computer use has long been associated with eye-strain and other vision problems. Because many vision skills are not fully developed until age 12, ...

Resolution for 2021: Manage assets better

DEAR EDITOR: There are two occasions each year in which we pay attention to the passage of time. On our birthday and New Year’s Eve, we often salute the passage of time with a celebration and a positive outlook, making resolutions to do better in the area of life in the coming year. Even ...

Trump will head to Mar-a-Lago or prison

DEAR EDITOR: I believe Donald Trump is the most corrupt president in U.S. history, and the only reason he wasn’t prosecuted for tax fraud, bank fraud and insurance fraud is because he was the president — and that doesn’t include using campaign dollars to keep a porn star quiet. How ...

Free speech must not be without truth

DEAR EDITOR: Our nation needs to brush up on oral hygiene. America’s barometer indicates a close 50/50 divide in political beliefs. How have we reached this dilemma? The medical prognosis? We have “truth decay.” We are entitled to the First Amendment, freedom of expression; however, ...

America should never forget Pearl Harbor

DEAR EDITOR: December 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 ...
