Steubenville should do more

To the editor:

I am a Steubenville resident, and my husband and I went to Wellsburg for its New Year’s celebration.

They had a disc jockey, hot chocolate and cookies, and a ball drop and fireworks. It was wonderful seeing young and old enjoying themselves.

I would like to know why our city can’t do something like that. We could ask the schools to make the ball and the merchants to donate cookies and hot chocolate or even something for drawings. It would bring people to our downtown.

People say our city is dying – well, maybe something like that would help. Our city needs to do more for its residents.
