Letters To The Editor

Unkempt cemetery

Editor: This letter is written because I am so upset at the condition of Columbiana County Memorial Park. My mother has been buried there since 1982. In all that time I have never seen the section she is in in the condition it currently is which is absolutely deplorable. Last summer I ...

A big success

Editor: Thanks to everyone — book donors, buyers and volunteers — who helped make the recent benefit book sale at Northside Community Church a success. The sale raised in excess of $2,500, all off which will be forwarded to the Tenwek Mission Hospital in Kenya, as promised, to provide ...

To God be the glory

Dear Editor: To God be the glory, great things He has done. I was in a department store when I met a lady from our church and she said, “Oh Don, I am glad to see you. I need prayer.” I said I can do that. She asked, “Can you pray for me and don’t know what it is?” I said yes I ...
