Letters to the Editor

Questions about mail service

To the editor: I put out mail in my mailbox to go out and the letter carrier didn’t stop to pick it up. I was told that if you don’t have mail to be delivered they don’t have to pick it up. They got a raise, plus stamps have gone up. I feel that if people have mail in their box it ...

Will pastor fire his gun?

To the editor: This is what I believe as a pastor: If I am killed, I am going home to be with my Lord. I saw a recent story about a pastor who packs a gun while preaching. If I may ask, where is your trust — in that gun or in the Lord? Your mind will be watching who does what, and not ...

We’re entering a different dimension

To the editor: Let’s talk about something other than Donald Trump. Come with me to the time when Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone” filled the television airwaves. The year was 1964. The day was Feb. 25. John F. Kennedy had been assassinated fewer than 100 days earlier, and the mob ...

Reaction to Trump adds to appreciation

To the editor: I think many pro-Obamacare people are going to be rudely awakened this tax season, as Obamacare’s strictures really begin to descend. We’re already hearing about people getting caught in the net of expensive fines, for being unable to afford their own health care but making ...

Questions about Bill Johnson

To the editor: I shot my first deer when I was 16, and I have spent a lot of time on the lake fishing. A recent bill in Congress threatened to sell off millions of acres of public land. Luckily, many hunters and outdoors people banded together to ensure this bill did not go through. There is ...

President has a huge ego

To the editor: In spite of, or perhaps as a result of, his total lack of experience and expertise in government on any level, Donald J. Trump was elected president of the United States, as result of his very successful campaign to promote himself as being the extremely competent, ...

Clarification about park funding

To the editor: I agree with the majority of comments in the “Money will help state park grow” editorial published in the Feb. 11 edition. It is great to see dollars finally coming back to Eastern Ohio and we need to thank state Rep. Jack Cera, D-Bellaire, for his efforts on our behalf. ...

Be careful what you wish for

To the editor: Here’s a play on words that might come true with no transparency from the discombobulated Trump transition team: With no transparency, what is Trump and his cabinet about to do? It’s a secret on how he is going to eradicate ISIS, and that he doesn’t want to warn them is ...

Changes have hurt our country

To the editor: Let me start by saying that during the eight years President Obama was in office the liberal left had an open door through which they advanced their agenda, and as long as they were getting their own way, everything was cool. Since the new administration has taken over we ...
