A warning shot

To the Editor, The coronavirus has done more damage to the soul of every human than a nuclear bomb being dropped on every city in the world. This pandemic has threatened 7 billion people on earth, not one nation was spared. With the rules of survival social distancing being the new normal ...

Sheriff candidate outlines goals

To the Editor, In response to “Time for you to choose” from last week, the author’s analogy and logic are wrong. It was witty and entertaining, and I enjoyed their compliment of me “being quite a popular fellow.” But the facts are that being a deputy for years does not automatically ...

Time for you to choose

To the Editor, I have heard of a man who, after working all his life and saving every dime he could, was ready at long last to build his dream house. Now there are three gentlemen offering to build it to his specifications at a most reasonable price. Each of them claims they will erect a ...

What is the president thinking?

To the Editor, Now, people have heard of hydroxychloroquine. Well, at least, some have heard a tongue-twister like that from the news, or, the dearest, Mr. Trump. Currently, he has made the decision to take the drug. Hydroxychloroquine is in a drug class called antimalarials. It is ...

Draconian measures don’t help

To the Editor, What I am about to write may seem a little inhumane, but has happened throughout history to save humanity from war, disease and other catastrophic events. Just think what it has taken to make America the greatest nation in civilization. Lincoln, some say the greatest ...

Global economy not an excuse

To the Editor, There’s nothing wrong with building a solar farm on Brown’s Island (“International companies aren’t the enemy.”) Our community may have a deep history in steelmaking, but it isn’t the only industry out there, and the author is right. Investment and development ...

“Where health comes first” appropriate theme

To the Editor, At Trinity Health System, we make the healing presence of God known in our world by improving the health of the people we serve, especially those who are vulnerable, while we advance social justice for all. Trinity’s Mission is carried forward by all employees who support and ...

Biden not up to the task

To the Editor, In February, Trump asked for funding to fight COVID-19; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ignored him, flooring instead a frivolous bill, banning flavored tobaccos. She later, naturally, accused him of not taking COVID-19 seriously enough. As Americans suffered financially under this ...

Gittings right choice for sheriff

To the Editor, During the past year in which I’ve come to know Scott Gittings, I’ve recognized merits in Scott befitting a man seeking the office of sheriff of Hancock County. As such, Gittings is a quiet, unassuming devoted family man with superb qualities needed of a sheriff. A large man ...

Postponed event stills helps TEAR Fund

To the Editor, The 10th-annual Campbell-Dickinson 5K, the Noah Long Kid’s 1K and the St. Baldrick’s Shave Off scheduled for March 21 were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The events will be rescheduled in August or September. The Campbell-Dickinson 5K Committee would like to thank ...

COVID-19 prayers needed

To the Editor, I believe in science. The health and safety guidelines established by the doctors advising President Trump recommended good practices to thwart the spread of the coronavirus. In our area, we are lucky to have minimal cases of COVID-19. I greatly appreciate local businesses ...

Thoughts about COVID-19

To the Editor, In the 1973 movie “Papillon, a true story that starred Steve McQueen, convict Henri Chamere — Papillon — on one of his many escapes from prison stumbles upon a leper colony. One leper offers Papillon a puff on his cigar. Papillon accepts, and the leper asks, “Did you ...

Trump immoral and idiotic

To the Editor, And here we go, since President Donald Trump is so fond of giving nicknames I intend to write this letter using various nicknames for him. Throughout “Dumb Corleone’s” campaign and three years into his term, he has proven himself to be immoral and idiotic. Here, for ...

Let’s shine for our seniors

To the Editor, To the Weir High School Class of 2020 and especially our senior athletes: As we left school over a month ago, I put three words on the whiteboard in the team locker room — “Adapt, Adopt, Adjust”. This was advice given to me by a coach/mentor many years ago. It is no ...

A different kind of campaign

To the Editor, Recently, I was surprised during an online “house party” with good friends from the Northern Panhandle they had not heard of Stephen Smith. They also told me they have not seen many yard signs for his campaign. As a former Weirton resident, I encourage you to get to know ...
