Letters to the Editor

Move on

Editor: Hillary Clinton has been whining since election night two years ago that she was cheated when she lost to Trump. She thrust her arms in the air, and with her weeping supporters, still try to convince the public to sympathize with her as she screeches “Foul.” Let’s just think ...

Penny wise, pound foolish

Editor: For the past two years, I have been a devoted volunteer at the Columbiana County Dog Pound. I was born and raised in Lisbon and felt good giving back to this community. All I ever wanted to do was walk puppies and help out. During that time, I came to know several other volunteers who ...

Called out

Editor: The Nov. 24 issue of The Morning Journal contained the headline, “Worker reprimanded over sign incident.” I remember being surprised and then upset that it was the county employee who was the one being reprimanded. Perhaps a quick recap would be helpful. A county employee, using ...

Get out the vote

Editor: Finally, just when it looked like Republicans would control the House of Representatives for 40 years (much like the Democrats had) a blue wave came crashing down. How could everything go so wrong for the GOP? Well, for one thing, the drawing of lines for Congressional districts ...

Volunteers are abandoned

Editor: We have the pleasure of living in a tight knit community such as Lisbon, where everyone knows everyone. Sometimes this can be bad depending on what you said or did at the bar last weekend. However, the beauty of living in a small town is reflected most when tragedy strikes or a ...

The right track

Editor: Congratulations to the Wellsville Board of Education and Superintendent Richard Bereschik on your decision to renovate Nicholson Field with the installation of a turf field, six lane all weather track, upgraded practice field, and parking area. This is truly a great investment in ...

Still waiting

Editor: I wish to set the record straight regarding the Journal’s election coverage. In the paper dated Wednesday, Nov. 7, it was reported that I was not available to comment on the election results. I was available that evening, and every day since as well. I spent election evening with ...

Despite all the ills, dump starts again

Editor: I really can’t believe that the dump in Negley has been permitted to start up again. This dump, located uphill and above the village, was supposedly for construction debris only. This has repeatedly been called into question considering the terrible odors coming from the site ...
