Letters to the Editor

Trumpitis a bad ailment

To the Editor, A quote from comedian George Carlin. God: “I am convinced he is a he, because no woman could or would ever screw things up this badly.” President Donald J. Trump is living proof there is a disease in the world worse than COVID-19, and it is called Trumpitis. Mary Trump, ...

Looking for answers

To the Editor, After attending the council meeting on Monday 7-13-20 I am disappointed on how I was treated as a 80-year resident of the city of Weirton. There were questions I had intended to ask under Citizens Remarks and was told by the city manager that questions and answers could not be ...

A lasting impression

To the Editor, There are times in our life that we run into folks that influence us. Doctors, nurses, lawyers, emergency workers, warehouse workers, industry folk...and all other work aspects that as children, or when we grow older, influence us to choose what we want to make out of our ...

Consider whole of Byrd’s work

To the Editor, As it has been announced recently that Bethany College, an excellent institution of higher learning, has decided to remove the name of former West Virginia U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd (1917-2010) from its student health care building, which had been named in his honor, as result of ...

What are we sacrificing?

To the Editor, I am writing this letter as a spectator predicting the future. There isn’t a single word, or many words, that can explain or solve what is happening in America or the world. The COVID-19 spread to every nation in a matter of days. COVID-19 should be a wake-up call for what ...

Pittsburgh influence?

To the Editor, Does this appear in the Pittsburgh media? “This” being the national piece on one of the most disorganized cities in the country. I know this is a one-party town so why not elect competent Democrat leaders? From the disastrous economic policy of the civic arena decision ...

Take care of your properties

To the Editor, This is about people who don’t take care of their property. If you can’t take care of it, you shouldn’t have it. It’s a shame neighbors have to endure your ability to not keep up your property, and they surely know their property needs taken care of. And there are ...

A nation in chaos

To the Editor, At first it was a protest over the execution of a black man by a white policeman. That horrifying scene was played over and over on American television. Have black Americans been hurt through the years; of course, there can be no denial. The “protests”, however, have now ...

The big bang boom

To the Editor, Okay. Catchy title for my little tidbit. But as you folks are reading this, its the 4th of July. The celebration of this nation. The rockets red glare. The bombs bursting in the air. Moms apple pie. Hot dogs. Cookouts. Family and freinds get together. But there will be those ...

Save the store

To the Editor, What a sad day when the news was heard about the closing of our downtown Kroger. This store has been a go-to for over six decades, and because it is splotched with red ink, down it goes. I’m sure not every store in this conglomerate can pull their own weight, but there ...

A leader with no clue

To the Editor, Donald J. Trump is the president of the United States and his actions and words are those of a spoiled child who would not be allowed out of the house in fear of what he might say to embarrass the family, yet his handlers let him out to embarrass America to the world. Racism: ...

Learning to love Big Brother

To the Editor, What is love? Love is preached everywhere. Among its manifestations are filial love, love of nature or love of one’s occupation. For many it is pure sensuality culminating in amatory congress but in most instances, this is nothing but lust. Exclusive of an abiding love for the ...

Editor’s Note

(Editor’s note: Today will be the final date letters will appear concerning any of the races in West Virginia’s June 9 primary elections. No additional letters on election topics will be accepted for publication.)

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 ...

Editor’s Note

(Editor’s note: May 31 will be the final date letters will appear concerning any of the races in West Virginia’s June 9 primary elections. In order to be published, letters must be received no later than noon, May 28)

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 ...
