Letters To The Editor

Building needs some TLC

Dear Editor: East Liverpool has made great strides in improving the look of the city by tearing down and fixing up many buildings, however it is a terrible shame what you see when you come through the main road of East End in East Liverpool — what used to be the old Columbiana County ...

Great safety forces, caregivers

Dear Editor: On Friday June 29, I fell very ill at my home and I collapsed on my bathroom floor. I was sweating and was short of breath. I thought I was having a heart attack. I could not stand up and my wife called the Wellsville Police Department and Life Team E.M.S. I did not have a ...

Do what’s best for country

Dear Editor: Let me begin by stating that Donald Trump was not my original choice during the 2016 presidential contest. However, he managed to defeat Dr. Carson and to win that election, but before he could be sworn in, “the resistance” began. This is supported by democrats like Chuck ...

Help needed

Dear Editor: Having traveled the full length of W.Va. Route 2, clearly the worst cared for, by far, is the less than 5 miles through Newell and New Cumberland! It’s the same story we who have lived here have heard since I was a young man — all of the money for the state road projects ...

Midland HOF ceremony lauded

Dear Editor: Sunday afternoon my wife and I enjoyed the company of friends and a couple of my former coaches at the annual Midland Sports Hall of Fame awards luncheon. It was a “home run” (pun intended)! The excellent program, in the beautiful Alumni Hall venue, was again professionally ...

Dear Editor: The recent US Supreme Court decision allowing Ohio to curtail its voter rolls is a step in the right direction. The gist of this decision is that those who’ve moved from one address to another without verification or have not voted in three two-year election cycles will have ...

What’s best about America?

Dear Editor: A question has been on my mind lately, one that I believe many Americans, regardless of our personal backgrounds, political leanings, or religious commitments, might also be asking: What’s so great about America? It’s a question that deserves thoughtful consideration, and ...

Does anyone care?

Dear Editor: I have hesitated to write this, but then I would be as much at fault as what I saw this Memorial Day in my annual visit to East Liverpool’s parade if I didn’t say anything. I always stand on the north corner of 6th and Jackson on this day to honor those who paid the ...

Transparency lacking

Dear Editor: Since the July 1, 2016, animal shelter takeover, shelter operational transparency has been lacking. Before the Commission’s shelter takeover, someone called county residents offering a full-time and about six part-time positions at the shelter. Normal county hiring practice ...

Not her business

Dear Editor: I have a suggestion for the short, stocky white-haired woman who seemed to delight in yelling at me while telling me what to do during a crowding situation in the checkout lines at Walmart in Calcutta on the morning of May 23 around 8 a.m. .... She needs to get a grip on ...
