Letters To The Editor

City program praised

Dear Editor: Kudos to the city of East Liverpool and its campaign to revitalize itself. We were not able to take any items to HTS on Earth Day because they were too heavy and bulky for us. I called City Hall, and Robin, the Mayor’s secretary, told me about another free service the city ...

Out of touch

Dear Editor: Would it be insensitive to equate the United Steel Workers Union Leaders to having “battered womens syndrome” over their meeting with Senator Sherrod Brown (D) and Senator Tim Ryan (D)? I’m not mentioning the rank-n-file members, just the leadership who are the ...

Ticket equals loss of business

Dear Editor: Congratulations to the city government of East Liverpool! You have reached a new height in lows. Today, I opened my mail to find that the city of East Liverpool has sold out its police force duties to some money-grabbing company out of the Cincinnati area. Apparently, the city ...

Wrong decisions

Dear Editor: Every year, Hancock County Schools cut its budget for the next year. Of course, they start at the bottom with the aides, teachers and service personnel. These are the very people that have daily interaction with Hancock County children. Getting rid of some of these employees have ...

Support appreciated

Thanks all around

Dear Editor: Thanks with Easter seasonal blessing greetings to Kaval-Levine Management, Property Manager Kathy Buzzard, Paula Criss of Lexington Country Homes, Maintenance Manager Mark Stewart, along with maintenance workers Tammie Hill, Ron Pyles, Charles Keyes and Randy Simmons and families ...

‘Shaking Hands with Opium’

Dear Editor: “Shaking Hands with Opium” Raised by a nightmare, I stood in a dream I visually glare at the faces unseen I’m swallowing in, and losing my breath Addiction places me in a dance with death Entranced by the judgement of your own conviction I’m asking you now, ...

Healthy start times needed

Dear Editor: Schopenhauer’s three stages of truth: “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” At this point of time, the Hancock County Board of Education is strongly anchored at ...

Pitch in, clean up

Dear Editor: I would like to address our terrible litter situation in Hancock County, W.Va. I know the problem is all over this Ohio Valley, but I live here and am working to help fix this issue locally. This litter is a problem. It costs all of us time, money, energy and misery. It is ...
