Thanks, writes a reader, to Chester officials for listening to the citizens here and banning golf carts in town. The city's a much safer place for both pedestrians and drivers.
Thanks, writes a reader, to Westgate school officials for a well-planned program for Grandparent's Day. Everything was great including the wonderful lunch that was prepared for the grandparents. It was a very enjoyable day, not only for us, but for our grandchildren as well.
Thanks, writes a reader, to the nice man at Wendy's who surprised me, my son and my 93-year-old grandpa by paying for our meal. He noticed my pap's US Navy hat and wanted to pay him back "a small token of appreciation" for serving our country years ago. My pap has dementia and didn't seem to understand what this stranger had done, but it is a moment I will never forget.
Spanks, writes a reader, to those who fail to take their shopping carts back to the cart corrals. Your laziness is not only a potential danger to my car, but you also make someone else's job harder. THANKS, though, to all the "cart cowboys" who clean up after these rude people.
Spanks, writes a reader, to the man sitting on the top row of bleachers at the East Liverpool-Cambridge football game who was screaming at our kids that they were an embarrassment. You are the embarrassment. Football players or not, they are still just kids. Thanks to the kids - football, cheerleading, and band - who give considerable time and talent to the game.
Thanks, writes several readers, to Hancock County Board of Education members John Manypenny and Laura Greathouse for your show of integrity. We are extremely proud to have you represent us. Spanks, though, to those elected officials who are put in office to represent the people and the good of the people but who allow greed to determine decisions! You have disappointed many.
Thanks, writes a reader, to the anonymous donor who was willing to loan $250,000 to keep the former Oak Glen football field for community use as it was intended.
Spanks, writes a reader, to all area drivers who do not turn on their headlights on foggy mornings, who do not turn on headlights when windshield wipers are in use, and who do not understand that "right on red" is to be used with caution.
Spanks, writes a reader, to the young clerks in an area grocery store who don't put the groceries in the cart for elderly people.
Thanks, writes a reader, to the honest person who found my cell phone on Oct. 6, outside Jo-Ann Fabric and gave it to the store, who called my daughter to come pick it up.
Spanks, writes a reader, to those people who continue to park half on the sidewalk, half on the road facing the wrong direction on Bank Street coming from Avondale. This is an accident just waiting to happen.
Thanks, writes a reader, to the officials at Wellsville High School for allowing customers of the Gateway Clipper Fleet to park their cars on school property. The river cruise was a big success for the Save Immaculate Conception Church group.
THANKS, writes a reader, to Moose Lodge 122 and administrator Butch Duke for the fundraiser held for Donna Malone.
