Thanks & Spanks

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the East Liverpool police who are sending citations to drivers on Route 11, only yards away from the 70 mph sign.

THANKS, writes a reader, to Blue Line Solutions for giving me another reason to avoid Route 11 in East Liverpool and using alternative roads, leading me to spend my money elsewhere.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the gentleman in Tractor Supply wearing the Ohio State sweatshirt who offered to carry the bag of bird seed I was taking to the register and then held it for me. Nice to know there are still gentlemen in this world. THANKS, I am very much appreciative of this man, who was a customer.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to East Liverpool City Police for running the traffic cam at 12:15 in the morning (twice in the last week), standing on the overpass and directing the device toward the highway, obviously thinking safety of our “streets.”

SPANKS, writes a reader, to those who opted for the “politically correct” phrases “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Holidays” banners in downtown East Liverpool instead of “Merry Christmas.”

THANKS, writes a reader, to the group of volunteers who cleaned the Diamond area of debris and leaves in anticipation of Saturday’s Christmas celebration in East Liverpool, which includes the parade and light up night. SPANKS, though, to city officials who fail to clean the city streets on a regular basis.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to our social media “friends” who toss about fake news from made-up websites and sources before doing what amounts to only mere minutes of investigating the obviously false accusations.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to America who is quick to pick and chose who gets condemned in this “holier-than-thou” society we seem to live in these days.

THANKS, writes a reader, to organizers of Wellsville’s “Christmas in the Village” event. Well done!

THANKS, writes a reader, to those who toss their loose change and more in the Salvation Army’s red kettles.
