Letters to the Editor

Remembering The Greek

To the Editor, Sept. 9 marks what would be the 99th birthday of Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder, who was taken from us at the young age of 77 on April 1, 1996. The Greek was a big part of my life growing up here in the Ohio Valley. As a CBS Sports commentator, he ranked right next to Howard Cosell as ...

Thankful for good influences

To the Editor, Bob Gill...Bill Zanieski...Joe Farran...Guido Magnone. These names may not mean anything to you, but they did mean a lot to me. Mr. Magnone drove me and my freinds from the neighborhood to a few Pirates games at Three Rivers Stadium. Mr. Gill and Mr. Zanieski taught me in ...

To the Editor, On behalf of All Saints Greek Orthodox Church, we wish to extend our sincerest and most heartfelt thanks to the entire Weirton and surrounding communities for their patronage at our 30th Annual Weirton Greek festival. This was a very special year for All Saints as we ...

Socialism bad way to go

To the Editor, The ongoing chaotic, destructive collapse of Venezuela is, increasingly, taking on the appearance of the onset of the zombie apocalypse. Many on the left are beginning to make pleas for assistance for the helpless, hapless Venezuelans, victims of the corrupt and self-serving ...

Weirton looks terrible!

To the Editor, Sad to say I've never seen our town look so poorly. First, look at Pennsylvania Avenue. Been down for over a year, and in that time, after a decent paving job, our city forgot all about weeds growing up along the hillside, and the cement culvert filled with debris. It's a ...

Party switch will not benefit West Virginia

To the Editor, Deception is a form of mendacity, and under that umbrella untruthfulness holds the handle. Some months ago, I wrote a commentary praising the current West Virginia governor. If I could find the back issues of the publication, I would chew the words off the page and spit them ...

A generational divide

To the Editor, Generations: The Greatest Generation has seen its best days. The Baby Boomers are retiring. We are now confronted by the Millenials and hte Z Generation afterwards. What's next for the Z Generation in the next 50 years? A generation with no immune system. We are being ...

A health care solution

To the Editor, Before affordable health care, a.k.a. Obamacare, hospitals, by law, had to serve anybody who came through the emergency room doors, whether insured or not. That means they ate the costs of the non-payers! Isn't it interesting, now that they are being reimbursed via Medicaid for ...

Great event at senior center

To the Editor, The Greater Weirton Senior Center would like to thank the following for a great benefit dance that was held in our honor on July 9. I would like to personally thank Pam and the Sands of Time. The turnout was great, and everyone had fun. It raised a significant amount of money ...
