Letters to the Editor

His thoughts on the Columbiana-EP game

To the editor: First, Columbiana’s football season has some things to regret, but the game against East Palestine is not one of them. Losing a game where you were clearly the better team that night is regrettable. Losing a game to your league rival by giving up two TDs at the goal line on ...

Upset with Columbiana’s beating of East Palestine

To the editor:  Despite my East Palestine roots and (friendly) bias, I proudly shared on my Facebook page the Reader's Digest story awarding Columbiana the title, "Nicest Place In America.” I'm curious whether Reader's Digest still would apply that moniker after the disgraceful actions ...

What is with the excessive money spent by candidate?

To the editor: Columbiana County has been my home for almost 30 years. It is a good place to live. I share life in this beautiful county with people who work hard to make a decent living and raise their families. It has not escaped my notice that much of the county is literally littered ...

An apology from candidate for mayor of Lisbon

To the editor: I want to apologize to the voters of Lisbon. I made a mistake last week by filing my pre-election expense report one day late to the Columbiana County Board of Elections. I am sorry; it was my mistake. I talked with Phil Richter, the executive director of the Ohio Election ...

Encouraging voters to back additional income tax

To the editor: It has been my privilege to grow up and raise my children in Lisbon, Ohio. We as members of this community have been called upon to support our home town by voting for an additional .5% on the village income tax. Seventy-five percent of the funds raised are earmarked to ...

Support the half percent income tax

To the editor: This is an unsolicited letter encouraging Lisbon voters to support the half percent income tax increase. This tax does not affect Social Security income. Unlike a property tax that would affect every property owner regardless of age, the glory of this tax is that it is based ...

Every office, every vote matters

To the editor: With all the hub bub and talk about the debates being held in Ohio, and the conversations whether or not Ohio is still a swing state, there is something far more important for Ohioans and ALL Americans to remember: EVERY OFFICE is important ! As one candidate said, “We ...

Thank you from the Salem Community Center

To the editor: The Salem Community Center would like to thank everyone involved in making the 9th Annual Women’s Night Out, Designer Purse Bingo such a success. It is a positive feeling knowing the community of Salem and surrounding communities support the efforts of fighting childhood ...

Some information about MSSA

To the editor: I think a lot of individuals are unaware about the MSSA Super Walk coming up on Saturday, Sept. 28, and a lot more people uninformed about who the MSSA is. MSSA stands for Multiple Sclerosis Services Agency. We are a 501(c)3 NON-PROFIT agency, providing services to those ...

JOBS Act would provide shorter-term assistance

To the editor: Thank you, Senator Portman, for authoring bipartisan legislation called the JOBS Act. The JOBS Act would allow low-income students to use Pell Grants for shorter-term training programs. Community colleges around the country have made this legislation their number one ...
