Letters to the Editor

Thanks for your support

To the editor: I am writing to the citizens of Steubenville today to thank all of you who supported and voted yes for the Issues 1 and 2 levies in Tuesday’s election. It was vitally important to keep the city of Steubenville financially and operationally sound, and, most importantly, to see ...

Progressives still miss point

To the editor: Where have all the valley progressive letter writers gone, long time asking? What can they write about Beijing Joe Biden, chuckles Kamala Harris, old nutty Nancy Pelosi, crying Chuck Schumer — the four donkeys of the Apocalypse? Communists see Biden’s first hundred days as ...

Far from the end of the story

To the editor: The recent criminal convictions and sentencing of former Vicar General Monsignor Kurt Kemo of the Diocese of Steubenville is not the end of the story. As part of Kemo’s plea deal, he agreed to assist prosecutors in identifying others who may have defrauded the diocese and, if ...

Right-to-work is wrong

To the editor: Nearly 60 million people say they would join a union if they could. The problem? Unionbusters, big business and woefully outdated laws continue to undermine the right to collectively bargain. Just take right-to-work laws, for example. Across the country, antiworker ...

To the editor: In the 1950s, the Herald-Star did not have a Sunday edition. So we subscribed on Sundays to the Pittsburgh Press, which was always a welcome addition to our home. It was a joy to get something from the big city. Dad always got the front section first and the rest of us ...

People still play the race card

To the editor: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed all men should live in peace, make forgiveness a virtue, remembrance a vice and in the elimination of black-on-white and white-on-black violence. With hatred omitted, only history and remembrance can make them hate. But King had a dream: ...

May peace of God be with you all

To the editor: In February of this year, I lost my wife after 46 years of a most happy marriage. Linda was a saint, well-loved by her nieces and nephews and all her friends. Her devotion to her faith in Jesus Christ and her perseverance in her Catholic faith were unquestionable. I write ...

Levies need city support

To the editor: I am writing to you today and asking for your support to vote yes on Issue 1, Proposed Municipal Income Tax, (0.7 of 1 percent.) This is for the continuation of an existing 0.7 percent of 1 percent levy on income for street improvements and equipment, parks and recreation, ...
