Letters to the Editor

Upset with the health care system in our country

To the editor: I’m writing to set the record straight. I’ve about had it with all the backlash President Trump has taken. He tried to get Obamacare repealed but got all kinds of flack about it. There has been so much damage done by Obamacare and all you have is a bunch of blowhards ...

How big should government be?

To the editor: The size of government can vary to almost any degree. The kings of old had total ownership and power over absolutely everything as does a modern day dictator. This may be efficient for a small group if the dictator is rational and benevolent. But most modern-day countries are ...

On behalf of President Trump

To the editor: For the past three and half years we have heard and read how the Democrats in the House of Representatives have dirt on our elected president, and how dirty and evil he is and deserves to be impeached. The Democrats have nothing that is an impeachable offense of this ...

You can help the mission of the United Way

To the editor: Thanksgiving is the “kick-off” to a busy season for all of us. Thanksgiving Day is followed by “Black Friday,” “Small Business Saturday,” “Cyber Monday” and “Giving Tuesday” (if there is any cash left). Charities have learned that the month of December ...

Tale of Two Cities: Columbiana and East Liverpool

To the editor: Recently two separate articles were printed within days of each other about economic development in the cities of Columbiana and East Liverpool. In both cities the objective was to develop programs that would bring businesses into empty store fronts within the central business ...

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 ...
