Deeds will have consequences

To the editor: An accusation, put forth by the local “progresives” claimed that the only opponents of abortion on demand are men. This must have been quite a shock to the women of the Susan B. Anthony’s List, the A.I.M. network and to those of Rachael’s Vineyard. Yet, to be truthful, ...

Margery Gregg: A memorial

Productions lack subtlety

To the editor: I am a lifelong Trekkie. Patrick Stewart is returning as Jean-Luc Picard in a new “Star Trek” series. Producers proudly assure viewers that the new show will address important and current issues such as, naturally, social justice and human rights concerns in the ...

Utility series hits home

To the editor: Thank you, Herald-Star, for Paul Giannamore’s four-part series on the challenges facing the Steubenville utility system. His reports provided the depth and scope that only a newspaper can provide. The challenges ahead are many and complex, but at least I now have a full ...

Someone like you for Congress

To the editor: Her name is Shawna Roberts and her mantra is “A New Leader for a New Future — Someone Like You!” Roberts was born and raised in Chicago. She’s a midwesterner like us. She always dreamed of living on a farm. Her dream was realized in 2002 when she and her family moved to ...
