Letters to the Editor

Don’t Punish Pain event slated

To the editor: There’s a war on opioids, but it’s not what you think. It’s being fought with misinformation, and pain patients are the collateral damage. We’ve traded reefer madness for opioid madness. Why? Could it be that politicians are eager for approval from voters who now ...

Reed right for Edison

To the editor: Knowing David Reed for 30-plus years, I can confidently cast my vote for him for the Edison Local Board of Education and suggest you do the same. He is a very involved father of two who serves the public as a volunteer firefighter with the East Springfield Fire Department, had ...

Predictions prove to be inaccurate

To the editor: The next Ice Age. Acid rain. Global warming. I have lived through all of these predicted changes that were going to destroy the Earth as we knew it. None of them occurred. Now global warming has been renamed climate change. What is the science behind the claims of climate ...

More questions about diocese

To the editor: Why are federal authorities involved in the Diocese of Steubenville criminal investigation of one person? Diocese of Steubenville attorney Tom Wilson said in the Oct. 5 edition of the Herald-Star that federal authorities had been involved in the investigation. How long have ...

Your carpets can harm you

To the editor: Beware of your carpet — this is a brief breakdown of my experience. I had new carpet installed in October, 2017. Then the nightmare began through May 2019 and beyond. Within a month, fatigue set in and weakness, which got worse as time went on. Then severe sinus ...

Hahn deserves second term

To the editor: I urge Steubenville voters to retain in the office of Councilwoman at Large Kimberly Hahn, who worked so tirelessly to promote changes and projects for the betterment of our community. Hahn, the only woman on our City Council, has served for the past four years, but four ...

Let Trump be Trump

To the editor: Let Trump be Trump ... a catch phrase these days, even a title of a book. It suggests that we forget about or don’t care about Trump showing us his taxes, because you’re OK with that as long as he’s cracking down on food stamp recipients ... even if it includes children, ...

Ferguson breath of fresh air

To the editor: When I read that Ron Ferguson had announced he will run for Ohio House of Representatives, District 96, it was like a breath of fresh air. Why? “Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is ...

Voting a right and a privilege

To the editor: I am writing this letter in response to the Sept. 29 letter “Davis supporters should remember.” The author of that letter insinuates that voting is an act of vengeance rather than a right and privilege. She mentions ousting an incumbent by supporting an opponent. In ...

Ferguson listens to area residents

To the editor: I am so happy that Ron Ferguson is running for the Ohio House 96th District seat. He is pro-business for our area and very energetic. Every time I have met him, he listens to people — especially those who have a problem or disagree with him. Public servants who listen to we ...
