Letters to the Editor

Progressives have nothing to offer

To the editor: Progressives have nothing to offer. They say they are going to improve the best economy America has ever experienced and reduce black, Hispanic, Asian and female unemployment from the lowest it’s ever been? An economy that is bringing back more factory jobs than their hero, ...

Consider power of words

To the editor: After spending some time with a survivor of sexual assault, I promised to write this letter. When you overhear something offensive (that others were clearly meant to hear), I hope you are not like me. The proper response comes to me two days later at 3 in the morning. Recently, ...

Hyde repeal would be troubling

To the editor: Of all the promises of the progressive coven, one of the most troubling is the intent to repeal the Hyde Amendment and use taxpayer funding to increase the profit margin of Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills. One has to be astonished by the apostate inhumanity of the ...

Edison scramble a success

To the editor: The 2019 Friends of Edison Golf Scramble proved to be a rousing success. A total of 115 people gathered at the Spring Hills Golf Club in East Springfield on July 21 for the sole purpose of benefiting the Edison Local School District. Four-person teams had a chance to tee off ...

Democrats are patriots, too

To the editor: There is a war going on, just in case you haven’t noticed, between progressives and conservatives in the letters to the editor of this newspaper. Progressive Democrats have gained many friends during the past few years who applaud us for taking on the progress agenda, not ...

Don’t get sucked into Trump’s game

To the editor: Some call him “master negotiator.” Others say “patriot.” I see the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. as the ultimate gameshow host. He has, for two-and-a-half years pitted us against each other — relishing the role of backstabbing “big brother” and ...

Look at Trump, Epstein

To the editor: In his July 7 letter, Rob Denham (“Accusations are a tiring game”) laid out his case for why he believes E. Jean Carroll is lying in her accusation she was sexually assaulted by then real estate sleeze-bag Donald Trump, extrapolating that most accusations against wealthy ...

Trump reaches lower levels

To the editor: President Trump’s recent inappropriate and offensive response to comments made by four newly elected congresswoman, who happen to be Democratic women of color, “to go back to where they come from” is, quite obviously, yet another example of his disregard for, or ...

Be careful what you wish for

To the editor: All parties must think progressively, whether Democrat, Republican or independent. It’s the 21st century, not a century of covered wagons — we are going to the moon. There are 330 million people, and issues need to be addressed promptly if America is to survive, including ...

Vietnam veterans say thanks

To the editor: We, the Vietnam Veterans Support Group, Chapter 1, of Steubenville wish to thank the management and employees of the Steubenville Wal-Mart for another successful fundraiser. We also want to thank the good people of the Steubenville area for their generosity. On June 29, we ...
