Jesus’ one solitary life was given for all of us

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: The sky is bluer, flowers blooming, air is fresher, weather is warming. Everything is rejuvenated with springtime. Easter is here. Some were rushing around shopping for the Easter day finery. Baskets and chocolate bunnies are bought for the children. Easter egg hunts and special ...

Sound off!

Letters to the Editor

In last year’s commissioner race, a candidate told the Tribune we have “seen no progress in more than 25 years on enhancement of Mecca Circle, the Mosquito Lake shore area, lodging, restaurants or any other attractions in that area.” Why aren’t there restaurants and lodging overlooking ...

Orchids and onions

Editorials

• ORCHID: To Lordstown Motors Corp. for successfully producing the first two beta prototype models of its battery-powered Endurance pickup truck this week. The company and its current workforce of 500 workers at the former General Motors Lordstown plant can take pride in that milestone, but ...

Water deal shows promise, but still more needs done

Editorials

We are glad to see Trumbull County and two local communities have not thrown in the towel on efforts to reduce water rates for about 1,500 water users who pay the second-highest water rates in the state of Ohio. The county had planned to ink a new 20-year contract that would have put an end ...

Gov. Mike DeWine losing GOP support

David Skolnick

Even though he’s a Republican, the GOP-controlled state Legislature is very tired of Gov. Mike DeWine’s health orders and states of emergency from the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite last-ditch efforts by DeWine to strike a compromise, the General Assembly last week overrode his veto of a bill ...

Astronomer shared great love of space

Editorials

Space truly is the final frontier, and there is so much we don’t yet know about what’s out there. Our area — and our world, really — lost a phenomenal scientist last week who spent his entire life and every ounce of his passion on not only researching space, but sharing all that ...

Despite new legislation, HB6 still needs to go

Editorials

We were pleased to see House Bill 128’s passage last week in Columbus, a bill that includes language to repeal parts of the controversial nuclear bailout bill that added fees to all Ohioans’ electric bills. HB 128 passed the Ohio House last Thursday by a vote of 89-0. It passed the Ohio ...

Repeated Falls recalls are illogical

Editorials

Here we go again. Dissatisfied with their council representation, residents in Newton Falls, once again, have filed petitions to recall an elected official. This time the target is 4th Ward Councilwoman Sandra Breymaier. More than 200 people signed the petition. According to the ...

Demand for energy sources must be genuine

Editorials

For decades now, lawmakers in other states have decried subsidies in places such as California that artificially propped up solar and other renewable energy sources. The argument was that if those energy sources could not succeed in the free market on their own merits, they shouldn’t be ...

Park name should not be ‘Trump’

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: I was very interested to see that a certain state representative wants to change the name of the park (which is a wonderful facility, by the way) to honor former President Donald J. Trump. In his presentation, he stated that it was in honor of “all the things he has done ...

Protect, build on lofty assets of local air base

Editorials

Like so many other distinguished and defining assets of the Mahoning Valley, one robust institution in our community too often has been undervalued and taken for granted. That institution is the mammoth Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Vienna Township, home to the highly acclaimed 910th ...

Democracy suffers when information is blocked

Brenda J. Linert

News coverage of recent arrests, detention or threats of charges, sadly, appear to be just the latest attempts to silence media and the free flow of information that journalists provide around the world. Here are a few of the latest frightening examples — including one in America that ...

Struggling, coping make you stronger

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: An article on the front page of the newspaper about how General Motors closed its doors and families had to struggle caused me to write this letter. My husband was a “lifer” in the U.S. Marine Corps for 25 years. He put in many 14- and 15-hour days with no such thing as ...

LaRose wrong to limit ballot drop boxes

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: Most Ohioans believe that for democracy to work, it must include all of us — no matter our race, background or county where we live. That is what Americans have stood up and fought for since our country’s founding. Unfortunately, here in the Buckeye State we have watched ...

Preserve the Valley’s industrial history

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: I’m looking forward to the 2020 census release. Unfortunately, the 2020 census is projected to disclose populations of Trumbull and Mahoning counties have dropped over 110,000 since my 1971 graduation from Warren Western Reserve High School, or WWR. Then, the Mahoning ...

Republicans erect barriers to voting

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: The biggest threat to democracy is voter suppression. I think it is ironic that Donald Trump and his followers ranted that the election was rigged. The Republican Party has worked hard for six years to suppress voters. They are probably upset because they didn’t rig the ...

Are you OK with this liberal agenda?

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: We have a president who has very obvious serious physical and mental issues. He can’t walk up a flight of steps or read from a prepared message. Our vice president has a very questionable past — both personal and professional. If she were not a Democrat, her lack of morals ...

Sound off!

Letters to the Editor

ODOT and municipalities could stop wringing their hands about Amish buggy safety by applying a simple, logical solution: Ban buggies. This is the 21st century. Cars and buggies will never be a safe traffic mix. Amish can use their cellphones to call an Uber ride. This would be a much safer ...

Orchids and onions

Editorials

• ORCHID: To Warren schools Superintendent Steve Chiaro and other school leaders for planning an in-person prom and commencement ceremonies this spring for Warren G. Harding’s Class of 2021. Given the easing of the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, restoration of these rite-of-passage ...

We recognize, honor doctors this week

Letters to the Editor

DEAR EDITOR: We recognize all our doctors at Trumbull Regional Medical Center, Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital and other area health care facilities on National Doctors’ Day this week. This year has been extraordinarily challenging — one none of us will forget. Doctors’ work ...
