Table of Hope gives much

To the Editor, Congratulations to the Table of Hope for achieving five years of feeding the community's hungry with having served over 38,000 meals. Table of Hope has been a blessing for those who come for the free dinners. The free dinners are served by volunteers who not only dish up the ...

A strategy for the future?

To the Editor, Stephen Hawking, the British astrophysicist, is at it again, suggesting we have to find another planet to live on. “It started in 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue,” answered questions to the Queen. Is the world flat or round? Fountain of Youths do not exist. Year ...

The naive and the unscrupulous

To the Editor, The appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was not only an absurd one, but also an absolutely unjust one. After nearly a year of the Senate not doing its job, members neither advised nor consented to President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland without so much as ...

It’s time to think outside the box

To the Editor, Every year, Hancock County Schools cut their budget for the next year. Of course, they start at the bottom with the aids, teachers and service personnel. These are the very people that have daily interaction with Hancock County children. Getting rid of some of these employees ...

Women deserve respect

To the Editor, One of the best things to happen for women's rights is the official unveiling of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly's disrespect and sexual harassment of women employed at Fox News. Women deserve more respect than being just an item when working for powerful men anywhere, anytime. The ...

Comments about animal shelter inaccurate

To The Editor, I am writing in response to Carol Village's April 23 letter regarding the Hancock County Animal Shelter. Ms. Village states: "Animals no longer have a five-day stay of execution." Untrue. Chapter 19 of the WV Code requires that animals taken in as strays at county shelters ...
