To the editor: Highlight the damage caused by deer

Please stop showing us cute photos of deer in lush pastures.

I agree with the experts that the herds need to be culled to limit damage to their environment and prevent overpopulation that results in sickness and starvation.

Instead, show pictures of dead deer from accidents with cars, and get interviews with the drivers and passengers who were terrified or hurt. 

You’re making your readers feel empathy for the deer.

What readers should see is the carnage, rather than the cuteness.

Americans need tax reform

Contrary to media belief, the GOP tax bill benefits all.

The middle class will save on average $2,400 a year. That money can be used for groceries, a family vacation, or college savings.

The corporate tax rate is not competitive at 35 percent, so it must be lowered to 15 percent or 20 percent. Small-business owners win big with this plan. They would be able to deduct the cost of purchasing new equipment and their “pass-through” tax rate would be lowered down to 25 percent.

The standard deduction is doubled under the plan, which would put more money in American workers’ pockets. Under this plan, wages will go up, and the economy will continue to grow. The death tax is extremely unfair and doesn’t allow people to pass their life’s long work onto their heirs. 

The current tax code is broken beyond belief. Constituents in Ohio’s 5th Congressional District, along with all Americans, need tax relief that boosts wages and puts more money in their pockets.
