Letters To The Editor

Holiday spirit

Dear Editor: The holiday season is well underway with the parades, light-ups and sales events seemingly attracting larger numbers this year. As a long-time member of the EL area alumni band, I thought both Chester and EL parades played to bigger and more appreciative audiences. Perhaps one ...

Let’s stop forgetting

Dear Editor: While out in the Calcutta area on Dec. 7, I was made aware that some businesses still fail to observe the proper way our flag is to be flown on days on national observance. We should know and never forget 12-7-1941, the day our country was attacked by the Japanese at ...

Similarities

Dear Editor: The similarities of the instant background check that is required when buying a firearm and the presidential election recount effort is striking. First, the background check conducted by the National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS) isn’t instant for a large ...

NCST great addition to city

Dear Editor: We toured the New Castle School of Trade —what a beautiful building inside and out. I was especially amazed at the original hardwood floors upstairs. What a wonderful addition to our city. We are becoming quite the college town. I have been in business here in the city for ...

Managed TNR program works

Dear Editor: The management of free roaming, stray, and feral cats is a serious issue facing our communities. On one hand, there are those people who love and care for these cats; on the other are those who hate the cats and want them eliminated. No matter which side of this issue you are on, ...
