Letters To The Editor

Road repair

Dear Editor: I have waited and waited to see the city’s road crew repair Henry Avenue and Davis Street. Do they know that the lower portion of Davis Street is caving in? When this happens, I believe the city will be responsible as officials have been made aware of it. Damages to ...

No ‘affordable’ care

Dear Editor: Past and present presidents have made promises of affordable health care. So far, I fail to see it. Sure, they put out plans that were supposed to help us find affordable care and millions of people were eligible for state-funded Medicaid. But those, including myself, have not ...

A mere Tweet

Dear Editor: What respectable American patriot doesn’t want all these TV hosts/anchors to “put a sock in it.” The intelligence of the average American is insulted by their irrational ridicule of the president. Most Americans are “fetched up” proper, taught to mind our “P’s and ...

Slowing down

Dear Editor: Woe, woe unto those who receive a photo violation for speeding. There will be no hope of a reprieve, mercy nor clemency at the rebuttal hearing if you decide to waste your time. This is spoken from experience. Recently I received a citation and filed a rebuttal and appeared ...

The law IS the law

Slow the roll

Dear Editor: When the social engineers of government (them) pit Americans (us) against one another, they choose a target, personalize it, so too focus angst. With the unwaivering support of the mainstream media they go after that person because if you push a negative hard enough, it will ...

Feeling wronged

Dear Editor: I would like for someone to explain to me why the Welfare Department has the right to say a person is a bad person because they have a 23-year-old domestic against them. Because of that, he isn’t allowed to see his grandchildren or talk to them. But yet, the welfare left ...

Blessed event

Dear Editor: I am writing this letter of thanks to the Calcutta Health Care Center and all its employees. They had set aside all their duties and time with their families to hold a fantastic Flag Day Picnic for the families of their patients. This was a very blessed event and it was greatly ...

An ode to dad

(I am Joe Wollam and I used to live near Calcutta. My mother taught school in the Beaver Local School District for several decades and retired as Dean of Women there. Dad was a staunch Republican until the Nixon years. He had a farm on the Old Fredericktown Road during all of his working life. ...

Graduation

Dear Editor: 2017 Graduation is over. It went well despite all the controversy over the color change of the robes. A white stole was added to the red robes with BL embroidered on it. Hopefully, Beaver Local school officials will make better decisions in the future about changing things ...
