Thanks & Spanks

SPANKS, writes a reader, to health care providers for not filling out a VA Disability Form to help a disabled veteran possibly get the benefits he is entitled to receive.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to a local business that is putting in more scan-and-go registers. THANKS, though, to those who do work the registers at various stores. I, for one, enjoy interacting with a human being.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the men and women who serve this country in the various armed forces. I owe everything I hold dear to those individuals, past and present.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to city officials who closed a portion of St. Clair Avenue for months, but did not bother to fix the various potholes there while the other work was taking place.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the various workers (such as postal carriers, garbage men, newspaper carriers) who notice when something is amiss at an address and respond by checking on that person.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to those who think celebrating total coaching victories over a span of many years is necessary. What happened to winning seasons?

SPANKS, writes a reader, to Calcutta Walmart for continuing to keep the garden section doors closed to customers. It is an inconvenience.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the young couple and their little boy, Connor, who paid for our breakfast at the donut shop. We were speechless when the waiter told us. This proves that there are still good people in our area.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the East Liverpool Potters Rebound Club and to anyone who helped in recognizing area veterans during the East Liverpool-Wellsville boy basketball game.

THANKS, writes a reader, to the Pizza Hut employee who helped lift a car out of the snow at the Moose Club.

THANKS, writes a reader, to whomever was responsible for having the East Liverpool High School winter homecoming court dress up for the group photograph. It’s very refreshing to see this.

SPANKS, writes a reader, for the condition of the downtown East Liverpool streets (lack of proper snow removal) by early afternoon Wednesday. A sad statement on the city.

THANKS, writes a reader, for the additional self checkout registers at Walmart in Calcutta. I love the convenience of being able to get in and get out quickly.
