LETTER: Even a fourth-grader can appreciate a good deal

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I have served as the United High School band announcer for many years and wish to relate a recent conversation I had.

LETTER: United Local School District levy unnecessary

Thursday, October 6, 2011

The United Local School District has received well over $5,004,849 in extra tax dollars in just the past six years. ULSD extra taxes are a one mill levy, a three mill levy, and a 1/2 percent income tax levy. These three “extra taxes” are over and above your regular assessed property taxes.

Horse owners need options for humane disposal of animal

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Editor: I would like to know when will people wake up to the problems American horses and their owners are facing. The horse industry is all but been destroyed since the processing plants closed in 2007. There are a large number of horses being starved to death, turned out to fend for themselves, turned loose […]

Budget cuts at Columbiana Co. dog pound don’t make sense

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Editor: As I read of the continuing cuts by Columbiana County Commissioners in order to preserve money, an area that seems to be overlooked is the Columbiana County Dog Pound and Adoption Center. Let me be clear, in no way am I endorsing reduction in manpower or any service they provide. God knows, they can’t […]

9/11 anniversary reminds us of loss of innocent lives

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Editor: Who can forget the 3000 who died on that horrific day ten years ago? Our government has been retaliating ever since against those responsible. That same government protects those who murder 3000 innocent daily in abortion clinics. It’s easy to ignore or forget what we don’t see. W.J. McChesney New Galilee, Pa.

The past deserves reflection today

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Editor: Today I remember that Tuesday morning as if it were yesterday. I sat at my desk having my coffee listening to the morning broadcast when suddenly the announcement was made: “A plane has just struck the World Trade Center.” I thought to myself, “It must have been a prop plane.” It didn’t take long […]

LETTER: Hybrid cats are not dangerous animals

Thursday, August 25, 2011

I would like to know since when having a hybrid cat is dangerous — cat hybrids such as Bengal and Savannah cats and so on.

Fuel efficiency standards on heavy duty vehicles is funny

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Editor: This letter relates to an article on page C6 of the Aug. 18 edition of the Farm and Dairy regarding efficiency standards for heavy duty vehicles (“Obama outlines details of heavy-duty vehicles fuel efficiency standards.”) What is in it for this industry to (ask) the government to place more stringent regulations on their product, […]

LETTER: Don’t kid yourself, Ohio farmers, HSUS just getting started

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Editor: On Aug. 1, the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review permitted the final two proposed Ohio livestock care standards, layer hens and veal, to become rule in Ohio. So, it is over. Or is it? Several members of JCARR expressed their concern with the negative “unintended consequences” this rule will impose on the independent […]

LETTER: HSUS has a goal for Ohio and farmers need to stand up

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Editor: In August 2010 HSUS started its first phase of killing Ohio farms. They were given all the help they needed by the Ohio Farm Bureau and ex-Gov. Ted Strickland. But maybe it started before then; maybe it started a year earlier when the Ohio Farm Bureau pushed the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board. Telling […]

Letter: Proud of community spirit seen at fairgrounds

Thursday, August 4, 2011

In 2002, the Columbiana County Fair and Steer Committee began fundraising efforts for a new beef complex. These efforts, over several years, resulted in approximately $35,000, at which time the project was put on hold.

HSUS controlling Ohio Livestock Standards Care Board?

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Editor: Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of The United States, brags about how he controls the Ohio Livestock Standards Care Board. Is this true or is this more HSUS bull? We all know they have trouble telling the truth. We all know they are good at making videos. We all know they think […]

Who should take the blame for the United States economy?

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Editor: I’m responding to the June 16 letter of Ian Murray. It was a critical assault on President Obama. Simplistic incorrect statements such as “regulation prevented America’s economy from starting again” are common and largely distortions, hence less than truthful. Americans have forgotten much since 1999, when the nation was enjoying Bill Clinton’s prosperity. The […]

Reader: United Egg Producers agreement is ironic

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Editor: In response to the July 7 article, United Egg Producers and HSUS announce agreement over hen housing, how ironic is it that on the heels of the closing session of the 2011 Iowa legislature (a leading egg-producing state) in which so-called “Ag-Gag” bill stalled, which would have made hidden video recordings on factory farms […]

Solar projects in this area do not make financial sense

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Editor: The May 12 auction guide had an article about Ashland county-West Holmes Career Center solar project. The project is funded by a $115,329 grant from USDA. Because this area has more than one third of the days each year with cloud cover, producing electricity with solar panels is very expensive when all costs of […]

Very proud to be a part of the ‘culture’

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Editor: This spring was so very hard on the farming community, with the cold temperatures and rain that condensed the planting season. Everyone I have talked to doesn’t remember a spring like this, and hope we don’t see one for many years to come. When the weather gave us a couple of small windows, I […]

Reader: Executive order is a dangerous step

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Editor: On June 9, with flagrant disregard for the 10th Amendment, President Obama signed an executive order to create a policy-generating entity for rural America known as the White House Rural Council. In a statement released by the White House, it is claimed that Obama wishes to provide “stability and protection” to family farms and […]

LETTER: Responsibility for animals can’t be taken lightly

Friday, May 20, 2011

Thank you for shedding light on animal research — an area of great concern for people from all perspectives — in the recent editorial.

Support the Federal Milk Marketing Act and help farmers

Monday, May 16, 2011

Editor: The Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act of 2011 has been revised and is at the legislative council getting into the proper format. Once again our farmers are facing more difficult times and we need to make the right changes before it is too late for most of them. Proposals are being brought forth again […]

Factory funding — a humane operation?

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Editor: Less than halfway through 2011 and already we see animal rights organizations proclaiming victory in our state. It is always amazing just what factory funding can do, how money can trump science and years of proven success. For anyone not familiar with the term, it’s when you gather up huge sums of money to […]
