Letters To The Editor

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 ...

Gimme the Tweets

Blessed

Dear Editor: This month we celebrate Mother’s Day and two weeks later we observe Memorial Day. In combining these two observances, for some it’s a very difficult time of the year. Memories of loved ones gone on, whether it be a mother, father, son, daughter, aunt, uncle, grandparent, ...

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Dear Editor: April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year’s theme, “Engaging New Voices,” builds on the idea that we are stronger together, and that new partners and community members are needed to expand sexual assault prevention efforts. There are many ways to embrace one’s ...

In support

Dear Editor: Judge Ashley Pike has an excellent record of service, integrity and knowledge of the law in Columbiana County. His dedication to the people of Columbiana County is documented by the many cases, sentences and order in our court systems, both Common Pleas and Juvenile. As a ...

Great Lenten season

Dear Editor: My bucket list just became shorter. Everyone should see these services at least once in their lifetime. For the first time, my children and I participated in the Wellsville Ministerial breakfast at Covenant Presbyterian Church, where the Rev. Kenny Stull was the keynote speaker ...
