Thanks & Spanks

THANKS, writes a reader, to Mr. Stowers, Mr. Hogue, and their helpers for cleaning up the trash along Second Street in East Liverpool. The area now looks great.

THANKS, writes a reader, to students, staff and families of Garfield Elementary School for being recognized as an Asset Building School in Columbiana County. This is a great example of what can happen when you have collaboration, communication and commitment for the sake of the kids. The community of Wellsville can be very proud!

THANKS, writes a reader, to whomever paid for my meal at Bob Evans on Friday. It was greatly appreciated.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the East Liverpool Street Department for not replacing the broken/fallen stop signs in downtown at the intersection of West Sixth and Monroe streets. Two of three signs there are missing. One, on a tripod, falls whenever the wind blows. This is a busy intersection with ambulances coming and going from the Emergency Room of City Hospital. This is an accident waiting to happen.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to drivers who have no clue as to what “yield” means.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the commitment of individuals in our communities willing to serve on school boards or councils. It is appreciated.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the area weather that is 70 degrees one day and into the low 40s the next. Please make up your mind. Most of us, most likely, prefer the warmer temperatures.
