Letters To The Editor

Prompt response

Dear Editor: Recently I received a call from a lifelong friend that was also now living in St. Clair Township and the friend explained their concerns, which, as a former police officer, I realized could be a problem not only for them but the public in general. It was not an emergency, but ...

A divisive conflict

Dear Editor: America certainly has witnessed a different sort of spectacle during this year’s football season. National Football League players, coaches and owners have demonstrated their solidarity in claimed opposition to racial inequality and police oppression throughout the U.S. and on ...

‘Take a Stand’

Dear 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 ...

Fun at the Fair

Dear Editor: Thanks so much to the Hancock County Old Time Fair board members and everyone who helped make the fair a success and fun for families in the area. We hear there’s “nothing to do,” and then a community fair is here and there is so much for families. This is a lot of time ...

Computer classrooms

Dear Editor: With colleges and universities starting up at the end of August, perhaps one should pause to consider contemporary education. Where once halls were filled with academic banter, they are now barren places. Online courses are sapping the number of students in actual sit-in classes. ...

Sham Cam

Dear Editor: They say it’s not about the large amount of money received from what I call “Sham Cams,” but for safety. Only township and city officials believe this lie. Our citizens’ tax money help paid the wages of township and city employees. I’m for putting in a more reasonable ...

Catholic Community

Dear Editor: Almost two years ago, Holy Trinity Parish at St. Aloysius Church began an extensive repair/restoration project to address numerous maintenance issues affecting the church building. Many parishioners dug deep into their pockets and pledged money to cover the cost. Over a year ...
