Letters to the Editor

It’s about community and teamwork

To the Editor, Bidell, why here? It's the little things…It was a proud day in Weirton this past Friday. The W.Va. Secretary of Commerce announced another international company entering the U.S., and Weirton was its platform. Its new home. Why? While our public officials, residents, and ...

Concert was true blessing

To the Editor, We were privileged in our small community to have exceptional artists give a concert. Kathy Troccoli and Michelle Margiotta performed for a capacity crowd at St. Paul's Church in Weirton on Feb. 2. Tickets were given out ahead of time at no cost. I wondered how it was that an ...

Later start times needed

To the Editor, Schopenhauer's three stages of truth: "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." At this point of time the Hancock County Board of Education is strongly anchored at ...

March 4 rally was a success

To the Editor, On March 4, a roadside rally was held in Weirton supporting President Trump and his polices. This rally was part of a nationwide effort, Spirit of America, of approximately 80 such rallies, and an effort to counter opposition to Trump in the Democrat (and some GOP) "leadership" ...

Trump really digressing

To the Editor, Journalism 101: Don't mess with the press. Opinionators and analysts are just busy-bodies who feed off the hard work of journalists. President Trump is digressing rapidly without help from an inept transition team that seems to be babying him instead of calling time out and ...

Rally showed the best of America

To the Editor, I swung by the "Pumped for Trump" rally that was held in Weirton on Saturday, March 4th. I couldn't stay long, due to having to get my daughters to a birthday party, but the time that I spent there, I honestly have to say that I would have liked to have stayed longer. To me ...

Burgettstown mayor wants to continue service

To the Editor, A slogan from the 60s comes to my mind when I think about our town: "power to the people." We control our own destiny. Your right to your opinion by Democratic vote. The proper response to the present situation is not withdrawal and noninvolvement, but expression of your ...

Health costs getting out of hand

To the Editor, President Trump's character flaws are so blatantly obvious they don't need enumeration. He is a loose cannon that I wouldn't be surprised doesn't last a full term. However, he was elected by a tide of frustration that he identified with and promised to address. And I believe ...

Regulation change would benefit West Virginia

To the Editor, It shouldn't be difficult to change state rules that are stricter than those recommended by a left-leaning 2014 EPA and that have been adopted by neighboring states. Yet that is the strange situation we find ourselves in as we debate House Bill 2506 in this year's ...

Trump has the wrong goals

To the Editor, What's happening in America with Trump's helter skelter transition team? Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and the Republicans keep saying Obamacare would collapse on its own. We must repeal it. The reason Obamacare exists today. The good old boys' health care plans collapsed ...
