Praise for the Port Authority and those behind it

To the editor:

The recent article announcing the inclusion of our Columbiana County Port Authority in the creation of the Mid-Ohio Valley Port District is tremendous news for our region.

In our ever evolving statistics-driven business world, we — Columbiana County — are ideally located with us bordering the West Virginia Panhandle and Western Pennsylvania, for growth in interstate commerce and manufacturing. The Wellsville Terminal is a great springboard for this growth with its river loading and unloading capabilities and it being directly adjacent to Route 7 and in very close proximity to Route 11.

Thanks to the diligence of our Port Authority and the tireless efforts of Executive Director Penny Traina and her staff plus the continuing support of our county commissioners, regional, national and international private business interests will now be more aware of what our county has to offer.

Another job well done!
