Letters to the Editor

Constitution is clear

To the Editor, I hear too many supposedly constitutionalists giving the president a blank check on his rights. There are no ifs, buts or maybes in the Constitution. It’s written what the founders decreed as law. Yet today the Alan Dershowitz’s in the judiciary try to imply what the ...

The pain of loss

To the Editor, Have you ever been in a situation where someone close to you has died? A friend, a neighbor, a family member, a co-worker, or just a mere acquaintance, or a cousin, grandparent, an aunt or an uncle. It comes sudden, without warning. And it is usually when you least expect it. ...

Transparency needed in county

To the Editor, In July 2016, the Hancock County Commission refused to renew their animal shelter operation contract with the nonprofit who had operated the county shelter for over twenty years. Then, they immediately requested a legal opinion from the W.Va. Attorney General’s Office ...

A bad game of chess

To the Editor, President Donald Trump is playing a bad game of chess on the world stage. With his leadership and the backing of some conservative pundits on the Fox News Channel and some Republican senators, he is backing America to the edge of being recognized as the bad guys on the ...

Crisis in the church has been addressed

To the Editor, I don’t know who writes the daily editorial for The Weirton Daily Times, but I take issue with the one written on January 3, 2020. The writer claims “The church’s sexual abuse crisis is not going away until Roman Catholic leaders get serious about cleaning it up” and ...

Urban Mission extends thanks

To the Editor, On behalf of the Urban Mission, its staff and board of directors, I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation to the Ohio Valley for the loving generosity it demonstrated toward the care of so many people throughout 2019. “Love Works” was the Urban Mission’s theme ...

Cable not worth the cost

To the Editor, I sit trying to figure exactly what are we all paying for. I have seen our TV commercials go from three now up to seven while watching programing. Our bills don’t give us a break for wasted time. Yep, we are paying for stupid bird and animal commercials that are like the ...

Resistance is just beginning

To the Editor, Transgender women — biological males who “identify” as female — are being allowed to compete in women’s sports, in which they usually dominate. This is due, naturally, to their frequently larger size and greater muscle and bone density, often giving them advantageous ...

A successful Thanksgiving dinner in Weirton

To the Editor, There was another miracle on Main Street in Weirton this year! The annual community Thanksgiving Dinner, which is organized and sponsored by the Weirton Ministerial Association, was held on Thanksgiving Day at the Greater Weirton Senior Center. The WMA would like to thank ...

Veteran offers thanks

To the Editor, I would like to say thank you to all the people who made the clothing drive for veterans and their families another huge success. Helping out people who honestly need a helping hand like the veterans and their families has always been a priority with me. And thanks to all ...

Holiday bazaar a success

To the Editor, I would like to thank the folks that attended our Holiday Bazaar and Lunch at St. Thomas on Saturday, November 23. In spite of the rain, we were successful. We offered three soups and three sandwiches. We ran out of the bean and ham soup and sloppy joes, which was a good ...

Expand recognition of coaches

To the Editor, I am writing to express my concern about our community’s recognition of coaches and their hard work from the past and the present. I would like for this to be in response to the annual hall of fame inductions that takes place at Brooke High School. My name is Jenna Cooper, I ...

Let’s hope they don’t succeed

To the Editor, In an ongoing saga of fighting for what is right, an opportunity once again arises for the industrious ant to experience the joy of being of service to the grasshopper disinclined to work. To paraphrase an old saying, let the ant toil whilst the grasshopper delights us all with ...

The fall of America?

To the Editor, Yes, it’s true. It is all Hillary Clinton’s fault. If the Democratic Party had not chosen to try and elect the first woman president in American history, Donald John Trump would still be selling real estate. Let’s hope the president that was not to be is not the chosen ...

Watching our history

To the Editor, Cal Thomas’ column, 11-19-19, “Forgetting our own history.” The problem with teaching America’s history? Up until the 1950s, everyone was teaching the mythical history of America. “Who chopped down the cherry tree?” The Civil War, Andersonville, Sherman’s March ...

Thanks for help with breakfast

To the Editor, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Steele and Wolfe Funeral Home, its employees and Basil’s for sponsoring a Veterans Day breakfast. It was a wonderful event and very much appreciated. William Yacos Weirton

Thank you for Scouting for Food

To the Editor, I would like to thank Boy Scout Troop 334 and Cub Pack 334 of Weirton for collecting 1,311 food items for our food pantry this weekend. These items will be used to prepare Thanksgiving food baskets and food baskets throughout the year for needy families in our community. The ...

U.S. now a rudderless ship

To the Editor, There is a rudderless ship in the world today, and it’s called the United States of America. President Trump’s eccentric behavior cannot continue to be shielded as that’s Trump being Trump. He has vowed on several occasions to take the oil in the Middle East. Coming ...

Help those in need this Thanksgiving

To the Editor, The Bible tells us that we are to love and take care of each other. The Bible clearly teaches us in James 2:14-18, “14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and ...

November is National Hospice Month

To the Editor, The concept of hospice started in Europe in the 11th century. Hospices were originally a place of hospitality for the sick, wounded or dying and even travelers or pilgrims on a journey. It wasn’t until 1967, when Dr. Cicely Saunders established the first hospice in the United ...
