Vote ‘yes’ for police levy

Dear Editor: In lieu of the recent tragedy in nearby Pittsburgh with 11 people being murdered and six being wounded, including 4 police officers, it is critical that all the citizens in St. Clair Township rally behind the police levy and vote “yes.” The brave officers in Pittsburgh were ...

Smoking issue

Dear Editor: Well, Mountaineer Casino allowed smoking to take effect immediately. But they did sort of make a small part of the gaming floor non-smoking. They put up a few signs so people would know it’s a non-smoking area. But there’s no walls or door to keep the smoke out from the ...

Double standard

Dear Editor: The pipe bombs mailed to those who oppose President Trump is a sad thing to see. Which the president has strongly denounced! Sadly the democrats will not denounce those in their own party, like Hillary, Waters, Harris, Holder, Booker and others in the party who have told ...

Vote!

Diminished dreams

Dear Editor: In response to the article of the closing of the coal-fired electric power plants, these workers, plus the others from trucking, mining, railroading, and large hauling, probably means well over 1,000 more jobs gone. The bad days of the closings such as Crucible (5,000 jobs) and ...

‘Yes’ on State Issue 1

Dear Editor: Starting at 17, I battled addiction for nearly a decade, and during that time I was in and out of county jails and state prisons without getting any real help for my problem. Local police officers, who knew me and my family, wrote me off as a lost cause and said that I would be ...
