Thanks & Spanks

THANKS, writes a reader, to the Beaver Local High School “Leos” for providing local nursing homes with adult coloring books for Valentine’s Day. Leo Club members Konnor McCoy, Kenzie Delposen, and Kayley Long were warmly-welcomed and appreciated during their visitations.

THANKS, writes a reader, to Chester First Christian Church ladies and congregation members who provided, prepared, and served a wonderful meal to our family after our father’s funeral service Monday. It was delicious and so appreciated. Bless you all.

THANKS, writes a reader, to Bob and Robin’s Flowers and other donors for making Marques McHaffie’s Project ROSES a success.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the councilman who stated there was only one person on the Board of Public Utilities with experience.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the local policeman, firemen, EMTs, postal worker and librarian who visited North Elementary kindergarten classrooms to talk about the importance of their jobs. The students and the teachers enjoyed the visit.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the Liverpool Township Police Department for diligently checking on the custodial staff at LaCroft Elementary when they arrive early.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to local youth volleyball coaches that play their own kids all game, every game. Also, SPANKS to the lack of organization, the waste of practice instruction, and the ridiculous amount of money charged compared to other teams.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the city of East Liverpool for forcing an elderly person to tear down a vacant house in the East End that only needed painted and the yard’s brush cut. SPANKS, too, to the city for the structures at the bottom of Bradshaw Avenue? Those are two hazards that a coat of paint won’t help. Do something!

Special THANKS to Jimmy Joe Savage for taking the picture and the East Liverpool Rebound Club.
