Letters To The Editor

Diminished dreams

Dear Editor: In response to the article of the closing of the coal-fired electric power plants, these workers, plus the others from trucking, mining, railroading, and large hauling, probably means well over 1,000 more jobs gone. The bad days of the closings such as Crucible (5,000 jobs) and ...

‘Yes’ on State Issue 1

Dear Editor: Starting at 17, I battled addiction for nearly a decade, and during that time I was in and out of county jails and state prisons without getting any real help for my problem. Local police officers, who knew me and my family, wrote me off as a lost cause and said that I would be ...

Kudos to KFC

Dear Editor: Saturday, July 7, 2018, was a full day for my wife and I. About 8 p.m., we decided to get a bite at KFC. We pulled up to the drive-thru and ordered. When we came around to the pick up window there was a car in front of us. It was taking a bit of time for them to get their order ...

Their benefit, not ours

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on Congressman Johnson’s article in the 7-22-18 issue of The Review on how great the tax reform bill that was passed is for the people in his district . Take a closer look at the tax reform bill he is bragging about. Most of the benefits go to the richer ...

Successful Olde Guard

Dear Editor: I had planned to write a “thank you letter” to all the people who made the 24th Olde Guard Luncheon such a success, but after reading the “spanks” (in Friday’s opinion page of The Review) that has all been ruined. I want to apologize to the East Liverpool High School ...

Building needs some TLC

Dear Editor: East Liverpool has made great strides in improving the look of the city by tearing down and fixing up many buildings, however it is a terrible shame what you see when you come through the main road of East End in East Liverpool — what used to be the old Columbiana County ...

Great safety forces, caregivers

Dear Editor: On Friday June 29, I fell very ill at my home and I collapsed on my bathroom floor. I was sweating and was short of breath. I thought I was having a heart attack. I could not stand up and my wife called the Wellsville Police Department and Life Team E.M.S. I did not have a ...

Do what’s best for country

Dear Editor: Let me begin by stating that Donald Trump was not my original choice during the 2016 presidential contest. However, he managed to defeat Dr. Carson and to win that election, but before he could be sworn in, “the resistance” began. This is supported by democrats like Chuck ...

Help needed

Dear Editor: Having traveled the full length of W.Va. Route 2, clearly the worst cared for, by far, is the less than 5 miles through Newell and New Cumberland! It’s the same story we who have lived here have heard since I was a young man — all of the money for the state road projects ...

Midland HOF ceremony lauded

Dear Editor: Sunday afternoon my wife and I enjoyed the company of friends and a couple of my former coaches at the annual Midland Sports Hall of Fame awards luncheon. It was a “home run” (pun intended)! The excellent program, in the beautiful Alumni Hall venue, was again professionally ...
