Speaker at OU perfectly captured essence of climate threat

To the Editor:

Thanks for your article, "Climate Change Happening; End of Story." Clearly, we need to start dramatically phasing out fossil fuels within the next few years or face what scientists are now warning will be "catastrophic" climate change.

Pat Lang is right person to sit on local Common Pleas bench

To the Editor:

As an educator, I think it's absolutely critical that our elected officials have a good understanding of our school systems and of the importance of public education in our county. This includes our judges, and it's why I think Pat Lang is the right choice for judge in the upcoming Democratic primary election.

I met a gentleman seeking work the other day; let's call him John. The "work experience" section of John's resume boasted only a single job. He had spent his entire working life at Ormet Primary Aluminum.

To whom it may concern and Wiz Khalifa, I want to start off by saying I am a big fan of Wiz Khalifa, and my boyfriend is even more so. I bought him VIP tickets for 12 Fest for his birthday.

Let’s join together and get pot legalization approved at ballot

To the Editor:

I feel that we need to get together about the issue of legalizing marijuana. It should be our right to smoke weed. Cheap Tobacco has a paper to sign for the right to do it - that is, if you are a voter.

Campaign spending turning our democracy into sad spectacle

To the Editor:

Once again, our imperial Supreme Court has revised the First Amendment to the Constitution. Free speech now permits bribery. It is now legal to pay a bribe to elected officials and legal for elected officials to accept them.
