Ujcich was a class act

A choice for US Senate

To the Editor, It boggles the mind, but in this year, the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, we currently have a Senator who has repeatedly voted against equal pay for women, raising the minimum wage, health care, and women’s reproductive freedoms. While women have been ...

Weld fights for constituents

To the Editor, More than a decade ago, I relocated my family to Wheeling from the Boston area to continue my family’s business in greyhound racing. I own and operate one of the greyhound kennels in Beech Bottom, where we care for up to 84 dogs and employ several full-time and part-time ...

Is Hancock County in financial trouble?

Points to consider while voting

To the Editor, Don’t believe President Donald Trump’s claims that there will be massive cheating in the upcoming election. Only people who are “registered” voters can vote. He claims cheating will occur with mail-in-ballots. For people requesting those ballots, only one ballot is sent ...

West Virginia offers nothing

To the Editor, What is it with this state when it concerns senior citizens? They have no programs for us. For transportation to doctor visits, it’s only if you have a doctor in Weirton. I go to doctors in Ohio and they have great opportunities for people living in Ohio. I was born in ...

There is no health plan

To the Editor, I am going to be judgmental about Trump. I can’t put my finger on it, but I am going to try. There is talk of Trump’s base, which includes many well-known in the middle class that speak well of Trump and will vote for him. Don’t kid yourself. He is the incumbent and ...

Weld’s service applauded

To the Editor, Over the past 10 years, I’ve watched as the opioid crisis in West Virginia has invaded every community and touched nearly every family in this state. As a retired pharmacist, I’ve paid particular attention as to just how our legislature has tried to address what I believe to ...

West Virginia has an option

Blood on our hands

To the Editor, As Americans and Christians, I feel we have a very important responsibility, and that is to vote. It also is a privilege when living in a free country. It is necessary to know the platform behind the candidate. While it would be beneficial to have a person with the perfect ...

The state of the nation

To the Editor, The media reports of “chaos” and “both sides” come far short of describing the sheer disregard and disrespect for the American people on display in the presidential debate. If you haven’t watched it yet, do your country a favor and subject yourself to this unpleasant ...

Don’t let the swamp win

To the Editor, The Clinton era ushered in a new level of corruption in American politics. The Clinton Foundation became a means of funneling money for government favors. As revealed by the Director of National Intelligence John Radcliffe, Hillary Clinton’s $10 million Steele Dossier became ...

Pray before voting

To the Editor, At this critical time in our nation’s history, I decided to pen a very different letter to the editor. As America embarks on a very delicate process of deciding their choice of candidates, in the upcoming elections, I ask for a simple request. Please select candidates that ...

Does anyone care?

To the Editor, After finally getting my internet connection back and periodic power loss and begging for some street lights to be repaired, I have come to a conclusion. we have no one in our town who cares about the citizens. At least once a month power goes out on Marland Heights for five ...

The American nightmare

To the Editor, The debate: The Trump activists shouldn’t be happy. All the questions asked and the president’s answers had to do with what President Trump did or didn’t. Biden’s answers pertained to what he would have done differently. What is happening in America right now, good ...

Donald Trump is shameful

To the Editor, A few weeks ago, presidential author Bob Woodward released excerpts from his tapes of conversations with President Donald Trump that he made for his book. Trump related to Woodward early February that the novel Coronavirus was deadly and dangerous. Trump said, “I always wanted ...

Barrett will prevent mischief

To the Editor, What does it matter? Justices form their own opinions once on the Supreme Court. Some liberals lean to the conservative and some conservatives tend to be more liberal. Chief Justice John Roberts, anyone? I know there is plenty of foot stomping (ever notice Chuck Schumer’s ...
