Letters To The Editor

Wasted dollars?

Dear Editor: Do you know what the figure $88,000 represents? This is the amount of money the Hancock County Commission offered the Foundation if it signed a contract to operate the Hancock County Animal Shelter for the current fiscal year. Adding the $100,000 in excess levy money, the total ...

Drug Court right move

Dear Editor: Being a former law enforcement officer in Pennsylvania, I read with extreme interest, the new court program focused on drug offenders. With my background, at one time, I naturally leaned in the direction of incarceration — even for some first offenders. However, that was of ...

A better description

Dear Editor: For the last eight years, it was unflatteringly obvious that the elected representatives of the Democrat Party had tossed the rule of law aside. Oops, sorry, “unflatteringly obvious” is too PC, so “blatantly criminal” is a far better description. At every turn, when ...

Pink be gone

Dear Editor: No more apologies accepted. By now, because of other pink plumes, doesn’t anyone know what makes the plume pink? By mixing the wrong things with other wrong things. Duh! So, tell your children and grandchildren to go outside and play under the cotton candy clouds. This ...

‘Project ROSES’

Don’t increase water rates

Dear Editor: Council should vote “no” for water increase. Live within your means. Translation: spend only the money you make, not the money you wish you made. You should know from the federal government that this does not work. People on a set income cannot afford this. If ...

Virtues of listening

Dear Editor: The exodus of East Liverpool residents has continued over the years for many reasons, but those who have been elected to our local government over the decades have refused to look in the mirror to see the reasons for this decline. These politicians and appointees have gone out ...

Stand united

Dear Editor: The “Deep State Bureaucracy” is panicking in fear of eviction. Establishment politicians are gasping for air, frantically flailing to keep their strongholds of power. They campaign pleading “send me to Washington to fix the problem.” Yet, once there, they don’t fix it ...

Voters should decide

Dear Editor: I have followed your coverage of the recent traffic camera consideration and approval by East Liverpool’s City Council with great interest. I found two aspects of this process to be very instructive: first that the city is going to go forward with the cameras without any input ...

Program needs reinstated

Dear Editor: I go to the Broadway Wharf every day and feed the animals there. I also pick up all the food container trash left by others who are unable to respect community properties. Today, I extended my cleanup efforts to the roadside on the ramp side of the road. It only took about 40 ...
