Now, nothing is left

To the editor:

What a claim to fame – a spot on the national news.

Unfortunately, all that this close-knit community had was the mill and the football team.

Now nothing is left.

I could go on and on, but that would lead into a bitter discussion about why I decided to leave my birth city at age of 17 years plus three days. I could not see myself spending the rest of my life in a sad depressed city.

Life does go on outside of the Ohio Valley.
