Thanks & Spanks

THANKS, writes a reader, to the man at Walmart who helped me unload my items at the cash register and then load them back into my cart while I tended to my 6-week-old daughter. You even offered to help me to my car! Your generosity was greatly appreciated, and congratulations on your first grandson due in November.

THANKS, writes a reader, to Donnie Murray for watering the planters along Carolina Avenue that were donated by the Chester Garden Club.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the honest person who turned in the money I had lost at Walmart on Saturday. My husband has been ill and not been able to work since last August. Every dollar is precious. God Bless You.

THANKS, writes a reader, to Kim, a pharmacist at Rite Aid, who went above-and-beyond to obtain my prescription for me. It was very much appreciated.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the Wellsville landlords opposing the possible fees discussed by council. Many rental properties in town are an eyesore, making life miserable for decent homeowners who live near them. This is a nominal fee and is for the good of the town.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to a local establishment for harassing a gentleman by telling him he had to leave because someone complained of him wearing a catheter bag that could barely be seen under his clothes.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to those businesses that hire those who are financially-secure for jobs that require no special schooling or skills. It’s these types of jobs that could lead someone away from welfare or allow them to supplement income for their family.

THANKS, writes a reader, to East Liverpool city officials for using common sense and allowing the street department to work overtime to clean the downtown streets after the weekend festivities for the All-School Reunion. Great job. It certainly is nice to have people in charge who will work with the people in town to help make it look better for all of us.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to those who jump to conclusions before receiving the entire story.

THANKS, writes a reader, to those law enforcement officers who worked together to safely end the dangerous chase/standoff near the city limits in East Liverpool. SPANKS, though, to residents who were attempting to get a closer look, thus putting themselves and others in a bad situation.

THANKS, writes a reader, to East Liverpool’s Josh “Sandman” Stansbury for his effort in The Ultimate Fighter 23 competition. Residents of the entire area should be proud of his accomplishments.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to Kenny Chesney concert-goers who again trashed the area surrounding Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. It shows a total lack of respect.

Thanks & Spanks

SPANKS, writes a reader, to coaches who allow players to use foul language and bully tactics toward other teams even after the official has warned them to stop. THANKS to the coach who did not allow players to be subject to this abuse and stopped the game.

THANKS, writes a reader, to members of the St. Clair Township Road Department, who – while replacing a concrete culvert on my road – inadvertently damaged my mailbox. The crew reported the damage to me, telling me they wold return to repair it. True to their word, they returned and put in a new post and cross post.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the Hancock County Animal Shelter Foundation for finding homes for the animals who have been in their charge the last several years. THANKS, also, to those who adopted these great “fur kids.”
