Letters to the Editor

Watching our history

To the Editor, Cal Thomas’ column, 11-19-19, “Forgetting our own history.” The problem with teaching America’s history? Up until the 1950s, everyone was teaching the mythical history of America. “Who chopped down the cherry tree?” The Civil War, Andersonville, Sherman’s March ...

Thank you for Scouting for Food

To the Editor, I would like to thank Boy Scout Troop 334 and Cub Pack 334 of Weirton for collecting 1,311 food items for our food pantry this weekend. These items will be used to prepare Thanksgiving food baskets and food baskets throughout the year for needy families in our community. The ...

U.S. now a rudderless ship

To the Editor, There is a rudderless ship in the world today, and it’s called the United States of America. President Trump’s eccentric behavior cannot continue to be shielded as that’s Trump being Trump. He has vowed on several occasions to take the oil in the Middle East. Coming ...

Help those in need this Thanksgiving

To the Editor, The Bible tells us that we are to love and take care of each other. The Bible clearly teaches us in James 2:14-18, “14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and ...

November is National Hospice Month

To the Editor, The concept of hospice started in Europe in the 11th century. Hospices were originally a place of hospitality for the sick, wounded or dying and even travelers or pilgrims on a journey. It wasn’t until 1967, when Dr. Cicely Saunders established the first hospice in the United ...

Socialism brings stagnation

To the Editor, What will happen if socialism ultimately prevails here in the United States? Some say we’re there already. But not quite. For all those who’ve swallowed the promises of peace and prosperity, qualities supposedly inherent in socialism, a brief glance at history is in ...

Support appreciated

To the Editor, On behalf of the Fritz Williams Memorial Scholarship fund, I would like to thank everyone who sent donations in memory of Nick Dragisich Jr. Your donations and support for the family was very much appreciated.. Willlam Curenton Chairman, scholarship committee

Wreaths coming to Paris Cemetery

To the Editor, Noon on Dec. 14 will mark the first year of Paris Cemetery’s participation in the Wreaths Across America’s annual campaign as they join in remembering the fallen, honoring those who serve and teaching the values of freedom. The original laying of the wreaths began by an ...

Liberals turn to emotion over logic

To the Editor, “Liberals never understand that what they’re doing is wrong, or doesn’t work; they just think they haven’t been allowed to do enough of it, yet.” — Jim Quinn California is on fire, in the dark, has the largest homeless and illegal populations in America and has ...

A note of thanks

To the Editor, I’d like thank all the members of the Top of WV CVB, the board of directors, the county commissioners, Weirton interim city manager, city council members, and the mayor of Wellsburg who attended the Top of WV CVB membership meeting on October 22 at the Weirton Millsop Center. ...

Neighborhood in need of a deli

To the Editor, I see going on almost four years our deli has been closed down and turned into a storage building which should never be allowed. The people on Marland Heights need a deli, especially now that bad weather is coming on fast. Why should seniors be forced to go down the steep ...

Needing a better deal

To the Editor, Under President Trump, America is headed for a train wreck and is picking up speed. William Barr, attorney general, traveled across the ocean on some kind of cockeyed investigation of investigating the investigators of Russian collusion in the 2016 election to help Trump ...

UNICEF support appreciated

To the Editor, I would like to publicly thank the Weirton Shop and Save for allowing the Church Women United to collect for UNICEF outside their store on October 25. The money not only helps children in foreign countries, but the U.S. also. It can provide clean water and medicines in poor ...

Thank you, Delegate Swartzmiller

To the Editor, I just want to express publicly, my sincere thanks and gratitude to Hancock County Delegate Randy Swartzmiller, for all of his efforts in helping get Culler Road in Weirton paved. A road whose physical condition deteriorated over the last two years, has finally been completed. ...

McKinley takes on immigration issue

To the Editor, Hats off to Rep. McKinley for shining the light on the illegal invasion issue and none too soon. Our PA pals have recently promoted programs to encourage illegals to make PA their new home. Why should citizens of the Northern Panhandle care? The cost of living in the ...

Some legacy

To the Editor, Germany left a legacy, Auschwitz and the symbolic Anne Frank. There was a Cambodian in Pol Pot’s tyranny. Surely a Rwandan Sih When Hutus massacred Tutsis. A Gabrielle Maria in Bosnia, Kosovo’s Christian Stefan and surely an Iris Cheng in the rape of ...

There are honest people

To the Editor, I would like to thank the person who turned my coin purse in at Taco Bell last week. I can’t thank you enough. There aren’t too many people around anymore who are honest. May God bless you. You will be rewarded someday. Florence Donley Weirton

Keep your hands off

To the Editor, I am writing this about people who go around stealing stuff off of people’s porches. It’s a shame you can’t beautify your home without someone destroying it, and, best of all, you have no trespassing signs up, which are ignored. They either can’t read or just plain ...

Listen to our youth

To the Editor, The callousness of two adult journalists, Rich Lowry “Don’t listen to Greta Thunberg,” and Cal Thomas, “Knowing it all at age 16.” Lowry, “with very rare exceptions, kids have nothing interesting to say to us.” Thomas, “As their adolescent brains continue to ...

Does Weirton care?

To the Editor, Recently I was told people in Weirton don’t care about issues like the proposed water and sewage expansion anymore than they cared to make the effort to vote in the last municipal election. I care and I believe there are still enough of us who care and will make the effort to ...
