Letters to the Editor

A different path

Editor: Pretty powerful the media has gotten. Kinda makes you really think how stupid we all have sounded when you stop and take it all in. Republican, Democrat, Independent, and others. Yelling, and not talking. Walking away, not standing and listening. We are all made of flesh and blood. ...

Everyone can help

Editor: October is the 30th anniversary of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the 20th anniversary of the Christina House Domestic Violence Program. While we’ve made great strides to address this rampant issue (through legislation like the Violence Against Women Act, programs that help ...

Lost gold mines

Editor: The teardown of the oldest commercial buildings, now 220 years old, in the state of Ohio would be sacrilege. Those buildings were deeded March 23, 1805, one day following Thomas Jefferson receiving the final payment from Lewis Kinney for the land to be known as New Lisbon, Ohio. ...
