Thanks & Spanks

THANKS, writes a reader, to the late Jack Clutter for the dedication of time, work and money to make the Broadway Wharf a nice place to visit. We hope his friends, who helped along the way, continue to do the same. Rest in peace Jack — you deserve to.

The Hancock County Museum sends a THANKS to the sponsors of its 5th annual Car Show and Bake Sale, which was a great success: Auto Zone, NAPA and Tender Touch Car Wash, all of Weirton; Rock Springs Auto Parts of Chester; and the CVBC. THANKS to Lonny Boyles, who did a great job as DJ, as well as those who entered their cars and supported us and the festivities.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the caretakers of an area cemetery for the terrible condition of its grounds.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to every official in the city of East Liverpool — administration, council, police and fire — for the obvious lack of communication as to street closures on Friday, June 16, in our downtown streets. It’s actually very disappointing. THANKS, though, to THE higher power that saw to it no accident/emergency took place during this time as accessibility would have indeed been hampered.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to city officials in East Liverpool for failing to clean up the downtown streets — weeding along sidewalks and parking lots, collecting trash and litter, and removing gravel leftover from winter — prior to the Pottery Festival, which attracts many, many visitors to the downtown.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to those who place signs along our roadways and then don’t find the time to pick them up following the event.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the organizers of the Pottery Festival. It is enjoyed by many individuals and families.

THANKS, writes a reader, to pottery collectors Bill and Donna Gray for sharing area history through the pottery on display at the EL Community & Learning Center.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to those who don’t take care of their yards and homes. THANKS, though, to the people who take pride in keeping their property clean.

THANKS, writes a reader, to local business people who donate to numerous events and fundraisers throughout the year. SPANKS, however, to those who ask for the donation, but never patronize the business.
