Writer captured spirit of mill
To the Editor,
This is a thank-you to Linda Harris for a job well done in writing a fitting, informative and emotionally felt tribute to the imploded BOP, the heart of the long-gone Weirton Steel mill.
I was so glad to see this story as it provided important historical points as well as representations of human connections to the towering steel-making facility. As noted by many, Weirton’s skyline is forever changed, but the impact and the memories of the mill and its many supporting businesses live on for thousands in the Ohio Valley.
Linda’s extensive knowledge and reporting of the local steel industry has served the community well for nearly 40 years.
