We are a democracy and we are allowed to reject fracking

To the Editor:

This is in response to the letter, "Democracy Prevails in Ohio," published March 2. Yes we are a democracy and we in southeastern Ohio also have the right to reject fracking or injection wells if we so choose.

Ignorant of history, socialist youths mistaken on U.S. ‘empire’

To the Editor:

I am noting the increasing hostility towards our own country among a certain portion of today's American youth, bred through a lack of understanding of history, along with a concerted effort by our "educators" to replace the "Protestant Work Ethic" with the "Hey, if I don't win the lottery or a million dollar lawsuit, I'll just have the government take care of me" mindset.

Citizens raise concerns about racism allegations at college

To the Editor:


As Black History Month comes to a close, there seems to be a continued attempt by the Board of Trustees and administration of Hocking College to sweep a serious charge of discrimination under the rug.

Contrary to anti-oil/gas column, democracy is prevailing in Ohio

To the Editor:

First, I would like to point out that this opinion piece ("Wearing Thin," Feb. 26) was so over the top anti-development in Ohio that it was almost laughable. If readers accept this premise, they must approve of principles that support anti-democracy, anti-free market capitalism, anti-jobs, anti-increases in tax revenues, and anti-development in general.

OU should change priorities regarding historic buildings

To the Editor:

The January 22, 2015 article in the Athens Messenger regarding the possible "razing" of the President Street Academic Center (PSAC) is still sticking in my crawl. To even consider tearing this historic building down shows the lack of vision on the university administration's part. The 38,800 square foot building is centrally located on campus and has a striking architectural design.

State continues to ignore high court rulings on school funding

To the Editor:

It seems every time there is an election there is a new or renewing school levy on the ballot. Being a member of a local school board, believe me, we do not enjoy having to place levies on the ballot, but the state has left us no choice if our local schools are to continue.

Retired judge a credit to justice system and his community

To the Editor:

It is not uncommon to say, when one loses the contributions, talents, experience, and presence of an outstanding individual, something is, indeed, lost. That's the case with the retirement of long-time Athens County Common Pleas Judge L. Alan Goldsberry. Collectively, we say that we have lost something of great value.
