Letters to the Editor

No, Harris will not be the first

To the editor: In your article “Reforming Relationships with our Native Indians” you mentioned that president-elect Biden is being urged to pick the first Native American Indian for his cabinet and that she would be the first Native American to serve in the cabinet. I beg to differ. Vice ...

Where are our political leaders?

To the editor: I have seen tremendous support and love shown to the nurses of East Liverpool City Hospital from the community. But their support has made blatantly clear the absence of one very influential group. Where are all our political leaders? Their silence is loud and clear. They are ...

Let’s try some random acts of kindness

To the editor: “Step out and find out.” In these trying times we find ourselves living in, what we all need is a good dose of hope. God created us to need other people. Even though we all are different, we complete each other when we celebrate life together. His love through us can heal ...

We need to get our system correct and secure

To the editor: Honest elections are tantamount to a democracy. The problem with our system is that all 50 states can have different systems for you to cast and count your vote, and they should since it involves that states officials and representatives. The only exception is for President of ...

Bouquet of thanks for the SFD

To the editor: A huge bouquet of thanks to the Salem Fire Department. They are a special breed of men —individuals who willingly put themselves at risk for the well-being of the community. As an individual who has benefited from their aid several times I want to credit them for their ...

We need to stand up for America!

To the editor: Hats off to Ohio! Apparently, we are one of the few states that knows how to count. We had our election results visible to the world on election evening! This occurred even though our Secretary of State, Frank LaRosa, sent out millions of unrequested ballot applications. My wife ...

‘Three cheers for George!’

‘Three cheers for George!’ To the editor: The folks at Salem Preservation are sending out “three cheers and an attaboy” to the George Istocki family! You may wonder, who is this man called George? It seems that several years ago George purchased the old Salem Sport Shop building ...

Service and Safety Director is grateful

To the editor: It has been an honor to work for Mayor Berlin these last nine years. He is the most thorough, strategic, and fair individual I know, and his dedication to working in the best interests of the citizens of Salem is inspiring. Mayor Berlin’s leadership and the work of our ...

Family member speaks out about incident

To the editor: My family was dealt a blow recently when my cousin died from a genetic heart anomaly. The circumstances of her passing were not suspicious in any way and law enforcement was not involved beyond the first day. Any normal human being would have looked at this situation and done ...

Resents comments made by Trump

To the editor: “Losers and Suckers.” “Losers and Suckers.” That’s how Trump described us while being interview by Bob Woodward on TV. I am an 80-year-old former volunteer GI. I enlisted, trained stateside, then shipped out to Germany for two-and-half years. Six months of that was ...

We thank you Sparkle Market in Lisbon

To the editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the owners and employees of the Sparkle Market in Lisbon for their many years of service to the community. We at Family Recovery Center have had a long relationship with the store and its management. We thank them for the times ...

Urges support of Mental Health and Recovery Services levy

To the editor: For some time, Columbiana County voters have graciously voted in favor of the 1.3 mil Mental Health and Recovery Services levy. As we confront this period of great stress and anxiety, the services supported by this levy are needed more than ever. Please join me in continuing ...

Mayor Berlin supports passage of County Parks levy

To the editor: I would like to express my support for the levy that the Columbiana County Park District has on the ballot on Nov. 3. The voters of Salem have long shown their support for city parks levies because, I believe, they enjoy a well-maintained parks system that provides much needed ...

Expresses opinion about candidate

To the editor: Since transparency is such a huge issue with people, I’ll state up front that my wife and I have no previous acquaintances with Vito Abruzzino (VA), and that both of us have been friends with Shelley Bergman and her late husband Kim since all of us attended school at United. ...

A dare for union members to vote for Biden-Harris

To the editor: I dare union members from every union and all employees receiving health insurance from employers to vote for Biden-Harris. Remember when Biden-Harris raised their hands for Medicare for All? Medicare is 80/20. Additional health benefits cost those on Medicare additional money. ...

Sheriff lends support for county prosecutor candidate

To the editor: This letter is in support of Vito Abruzzino for county prosecutor. Vito has been a successful federal prosecutor with international prosecutorial experience. He has been a United States Justice Department prosecutor, a civil litigator, as well as an assistant law director. He ...

‘Impressed with ‘by-the-book judge’

To the editor: I have been practicing law in the Mahoning County Court No. 3 in Sebring, Ohio for nearly 40 years. Three judges of that court have been removed from office for criminal activity and another due to his bailiff’s criminal conduct. All were appointed by the ruling Democratic ...

Former Election Board member expresses views

To the editor: Much is being made in the race for county prosecutor of John Gamble’s so- called “experience”. Well let’s examine his “experience” as it relates to recent headline news reports. John Gamble has been fined by a visiting judge for “willful contempt” and was ...
