Letters To The Editor

Parents and the election

Dear Editor: In regard to the letter concerning Halloween, I’d be more worried about what my child was watching on TV or the internet than I would be about them dressing up and going out trick-or-treating. The problem is not the children, it is what their parents are allowing them ...

The pain of change

Dear Editor: Anything that takes us from our usual routine tends to make most people a little uncomfortable until a new routine becomes everyday normal. I understand the pain of change, but I also realize the necessity of change when circumstances warrant. Perhaps this explains the ...

In need of apology

Dear Editor: The Democrat candidate for state Representative, John Dyce, recently called for state Rep. Tim Ginter to denounce comments made by Donald Trump. I am and have always been a registered Democrat, and I am calling for Mr. Dyce to apologize to me and my family members who are ...

Get this under control

Dear Editor: The article in the paper on Monday, Oct. 10, describing the three companies that shipped a total of 459.4 million pain pills to West Virginia over a 6-year period was alarming. That is over 41 pain pills a year for every man, woman, and child in West Virginia. I’m ...

Vote Cowey

Dear Editor: Paul Cowey is the only person running for Hancock County commissioner who cares about the issues. I say this because he attends every commission meeting and takes notes. None of the other candidates have done so. He talks to people attending the meetings, asks questions, and ...

Get out and vote

Dear Editor: Let’s talk about Donald Trump, everybody’s doing it. Traveling through the area I see Trump stickers on cars and signs in people’s yards and I’m wondering, Why Trump? People are saying they want change. President Obama got millions of people medical insurance that ...

Why continue to aid addiction?

Dear Editor: Can we take a minute to discuss the ongoing, drastically growing drug epidemic going on in our communities? How ridiculous is it to you that drug addicts who choose to ruin their lives, continuously, have a free drug given to them, and then the ones who have no choice to be ...
