Letters to the Editor

Only in America

To the Editor, Only in America will we stop a football game, drag out measuring chains and look at a play 15 times from six different angles to make sure we make the right call, but we won’t verify the integrity of an election for the highest office in our nation. Only in America will top ...

Bring school back full time

To the Editor, What was the 4 to 1 vote to send the students in Hancock County back to school on the hybrid system based on? Thank you for the one board member who voted against it. Did you consider all the data? Students, ALL grades 1-12, have a very low percentage of catching and ...

We must respect one another

To the Editor, I have never been very political. I am 59, Roman Catholic and come from a devout Irish family whose grandfather, father and brother served in law enforcement. I was brought up Democrat, raised to respect my faith, my family and my country. What guides my vote more than ...

Looking back at bloomers

To the Editor, As one of the foremost crusaders for woman’s rights during the 19th century, Amelia Bloomer championed causes such as women’s suffrage, temperance and a greater role for women in the everyday affairs of running the nation. She became the deputy postmaster of Seneca Falls, ...

Rooting for the Ohio Valley

To the Editor, As subscribers to the Weirton Daily Times, we want to comment on your column “It’s not just about the red and blue.” We appreciate the fact that you are working to promote unity in Weirton-Steubenville, a place where we once lived. But, it’s important to stress that ...

Will Biden provide the answers?

To the Editor, What is it the brain stormers and geniuses of the world don’t understand? Why can’t they understand it’s the population of the world that is the problem? The Earth can only support 9 billion people. We are getting close. Then what? There are many possible scenarios ...

A tragedy in our country

To the Editor, The invasion of the United States Capitol on Jan. 6 by Trump supporters was appalling, disgusting and heartbreaking. They rioted under the banners of “taking back our country,” “stop the steal” and “being patriots.” They are insurrectionists, anarchists and domestic ...

Kids are better off in school

To the Editor, Last year, when we began to hear and learn about the COVID-19 pandemic, there was very little data to support the decisions made, both locally and nationally, to shut down schools. The “experts” asked us to remain inside for two months and flatten the curve. How did that ...

Weirton museum a blessing for the city

To the Editor, Often I hear, and see on the internet, folks lamenting the changes in Weirton. The mill is slowly disappearing, businesses are closing, and buildings crumbling. I agree, it is sad to see the past slowly disappearing. But things are renewing as well. On my recent visit to see ...

A warning for the future

To the Editor, I am sorry to report there are no ghosts or goblins or devil that has caused the upheaval in the world. It’s plain and simple. There are enough evil people in the world to end the world as we know it. It’s not a question of whether Trump is good or bad. He is neither. ...

Bringing a light of hope

To the Editor, Last Saturday, the Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce held its first Christmas Luminary Night with Santa visiting neighborhoods, a drone flying overhead, and fireworks to cap off the night. To see so much of Weirton lit up in such splendor was uplifting after the year we have all ...

Organization helps greyhounds

To the Editor, I was disappointed to see Senator Ryan Weld misrepresent the work of my nonprofit organization when it comes to greyhound adoption. As a matter of fact, we have provided more than $250,000 to greyhound adoption groups since 2018, and are likely the largest funder of ...

Christmas has returned

To the Editor, Thanks to Chad Hines for bringing back the Christmas decorations to the Flood mansion. As a child, my biggest part of Christmas was getting to go inside the front door and stand in the foyer waiting for Dr. Flood to come down and I gave him the present from our family. For ...

What has happened to our country?

To the Editor, What’s happened to America? Why the reason the average person is not happy with being an American? How can some cuckoos on Fox News push the idea of a deep state peeking in our window and Trump’s dictatorial ideas better than democracy. Fox News’ big three, Carlson, ...

Be an informed voter

To the Editor, Friends and neighbors and all those concerned about the outcome of the Nov. 3, 2020, election: The news media has been pointing out that “Sleepy Joe Biden” has 6 million more votes than Donald Trump. Trump claims this result was brought about because of massive voter ...

Election thoughts

To the Editor, Hallelujah! Decency, dignity, honor, respect, compassion and character won on the ballot for Joe Biden for the presidency. Promotion of hatred, divisiveness, lying, destruction and poison vitriol has been rejected of President Donald Trump by the majority of the American people. ...

Disappointed in election

To the Editor, What a three-ring circus. People in this country don’t even know how to vote. I’ll bet those other countries are all having a good laugh. As far as I’m concerned, they need to go by the popular vote. Well, I won’t be around when the next presidential election is. ...

Veteran banners bring pride

To the Editor, I would like to thank all those responsible for the Veterans Banner flags that are so proudly displayed throughout our city. To Mrs. Timothy Connell and her husband for taking care of providing the process to have the banners displayed, to those who hang and remove the ...

The dream is at risk

To the Editor, The great American dream is at risk for all our children of the world if Donald Trump tries to stay in power as a dictator. The Christians of the world should be elated. The election proved Jesus is alive and doing well. Defeated incumbent President Donald J. Trump’s ...

Learn more about diabetes

To the Editor, World Diabetes Day is on Nov. 14. One of the conditions that puts you at increased risk to get COVID 19 is diabetes. In West Virginia, more than one in eight adults (13%) have diabetes and one in four don’t know they’re diabetic. This is considered to be of epidemic ...
