Letters to the Editor

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 ...

Early voting was easy process

To the Editor, Kudos and hats off to the Hancock County Board of Elections for a great job for early voting at the courthouse. On Oct. 23, we arrived shortly before the courthouse opened. Voting had not started but about 10 people had already been screened for temperature checks and had ...

Support the Dunbar Center

To the Editor, The Dunbar Recreation Center (DRC), located at the corner of Weir Avenue and Kessel Streets in Weirton, is a vital part of our area’s history and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, making all donations to its preservation fully tax deductible. Since its official opening on ...

Ujcich was a class act

To the Editor, This past weekend, the entire sports community, along with the Brooke Bruin community, lost a very close and dear friend. We were all saddened and shocked to hear of the loss of Ron Ujcich, Brooke High School coach and mentor. I am sure I can speak for all local sports ...

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?

To the Editor, Commission President Joe Barnabei recently posted a video indicating what he plans to do as a commissioner. In the video, he talks about how difficult it was to submit a balanced county budget this year. Submitting a balanced budget is a state requirement. Since in 2016 he ...

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

To the Editor, In the gubernatorial election November 3rd, you have a choice. If you are satisfied with the present failed state policy for COVID-19 that has resulted in business closings, high unemployment, children and adolescents denied the benefits of in-person education, and the ...

McGeehan an honorable representative

To the Editor, Delegate Pat McGeehan is a rare breed in politics: a man of his word. He has demonstrated time and time again the four cardinal virtues of courage, wisdom, temperance, and justice. He never gives in to political pressure from party bosses. In this time where politics are ...

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 ...
