Thanks for the question, George. As the story says, "Court records do not list an attorney for International Steel and Counterweights. Company representatives did not return calls for comment earlier this week."

Since masks protect other people from you when you may be asymptomatic, why is that your choice? Is your argument that you have a freedom to expose others to harm? What is the scientific or medical basis for your decision?

Stan: It's remarkably flawed rhetoric to suggest because Mahoning Matters publishes the wise Rev. Macklin's weekly column that we are promoting anything but civil discourse. We serve a wonderfully diverse audience and the notion to bring Rev. Macklin into our fold was actually made by readers who asked for us to furnish something to feed their faith during these times. We are open to any positive suggestions. We are less beholden to negative comments. If you have a column idea to help folks sustain during these times, send it to mark@mahoningmatters.com.
