Reader says SB310 doesn’t protect animals or the public

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Editor: One year after the tragic incident of Zanesville, I would say that Ohio has not taken a step forward but a giant step backwards. Legislation forced upon Ohio citizens was neither for the benefit of the public nor the animals. SB310 does not protect the public nor will it stop another incident from occurring. […]

Letter: Under-educated doesn’t mean un-trainable

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Editor: I read with mixed thoughts, the commentary, “The jobs are there, the education is not” (Sept. 27, 2012 issue).

S.B. 130 isn’t perfect, but a start to animal welfare

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Letter writer: Not satisifed with exotic animal bill

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Remember Civics 101 where they taught us about the ‘checks and balances’ in our three branches of government — executive, legislative and judicial? Apparently, John Kasich needs a refresher course in state government. Senate Bill 310 (the exotic animal bill we’ve heard so much about) is supposed to address the issues of public safety and […]

Michigan’s stance on feral swine hurts small, family farms

Friday, April 20, 2012

Editor You recently printed an article on invasive feral swine [Michigan gets tough on invasive feral swine, April 5.] This article fails to present the whole story.

LETTER: When counting your shale money, remember your local community

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Editor: It seems everywhere you go you hear or see something about the oil and gas phenomenon that is occurring in and around Columbiana County.
