Historic step for W.Va. education employees

Dear Editor: Back in 1990, West Virginia made historic steps by participating in the first statewide teacher strike that lasted for 11 days. Here we are 28 years later and West Virginia made history again by staging a work stoppage for all education employees. You read about school ...

The best Valentine gift

Dear Editor: When thinking of Valentine’s Day, it’s easy to think of the heart-shaped boxes on store shelves, the flowers and special card to be given to your sweetheart, and/or whatever your choice gift might be for your loved one. The heart has always been a symbol of love and life. ...

‘State of the City’ inspirational

Dear Editor: A big thank you to the great mayor of East Liverpool, Mr. Ryan Stoffel, on the “State of the City” address. I felt that it was very informative and wonderful to hear great things about East Liverpool. We have come a long way in the past few years under his business and our ...

Complexities of the ‘swamp’

Dear Editor: What? The good guys are the bad guys? How can this be? In the USA, good guys wear white hats and safeguard our rights. But what have we recently learned? Corrupt officials in the “Obama Justice Department” and the FBI conspired and then lied to the FISA court to obtain ...

Backstabbers

Dear Editor: Whenever an article appears about the memo, I play the song, “The Backstabbers” by the O’Jays. With that being said, all Mueller need do is hold a presser, announce “I have proof” (of what), drop the mic and leave stage! The main stream media will dutifully roll out the ...

The countdown and resolutions

Dear Editor: In thinking of New Year’s and the big countdown and resolutions that we make today and break tomorrow, my thoughts turn from the traditional New Year’s festivities and all, to a different mindset regarding the New Year. Regarding the big countdown: There is a bigger ...

DACA won’t MAGA

Dear Editor: DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) won’t MAGA (Make American Geat Again)! It is heralded by the political left that America is the land of immigrants so your citizenship isn’t all its cracked up to be. By that logic, America is just an open stretch of land ...
