Letters to the Editor

Right to work wrong for Ohio

To the editor: This Congress has no desire to raise the minimum wage. We are stuck between that familiar rock and a hard place. We’ve been groomed to not care about how much a job pays or what benefits it has ... because it’s a job. We’re turning into a Third World country where the ...

Un-reporting an issue

To the editor: Since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, the reporting of “fake news” has been a major topic of discussion in both print and electronic media. A lot of stories reported what were found to be lies, or made-up stories have been presented as “factual ...

Liberals upset for wrong reasons

To the editor: High noon, Jan. 20 — a date of infamy for Trump derangement syndrome liberals. Notifying all liberals: “Anybody not willing to accept the results of an election is a danger to democracy.” — Hil-Liar-ry Clinton. Want to end abortion? Show a photo of an aborted ...

To the editor: A few weeks before Nov. 8, I put up a sign in my yard that read “Jesus, deliver us from Hillary Clinton.” A few days later, I got a phone call from a gentleman who said that he rally liked the sign, but then told me that I might as well stuff it into the garbage ...

Autism speaks

To the editor: On occasion my mother would remind me that I did not talk until I was 4 years old. If I wanted anything, I would simply point to it. When she took me to the doctor, the wise man would simply say, “He’s just thinking — he’ll talk when he’s ready.” One thing I wanted ...

Coalition looks to make difference

To the editor: I was going to write this letter regarding the cabinet nominations, then I was going to write about that farce of a press conference, but as the news has been so fast and fluid every day, I decided to go in a different direction. My name is Barbara Davis and I am a founding ...
