Letters to the Editor

25-Year Club thanks sponsors

To the Editor, This is a special thank-you to all the sponsor of the Weirton Steel 25-Year Club. The picnic was held on July 13 at the Serbian Picnic grounds and was very well attended. This was the 73rd picnic, and the members look forward each year to gathering with their co-worker and ...

Pathetically desperate

To the Editor, The mass shootings recently in Gilroy, Calif., El Paso, Texas, and Dayton have elicited the predictable cries for ever more gun regulations. Once again, a few crazies go off the deep end and incite a senseless tragedy, and the typical knee-jerk reaction of the American left is ...

Background checks for all

To the Editor, America fought the Civil War with muskets and tamed the Old West with six shooters. There is something wrong with the system when one person can walk into a Wal-Mart in Dallas, Texas, and kill at will 22 people, injure 30 more and nine hours later the same thin happen in ...

The wrong roads are getting attention

To the Editor, Every road paved but the right ones! Well, I see city officials throwing our money away like candy again! Paved from downtown Pennsylvania Avenue to the state line and the all the money invested and our road in front of city building looks like a diasater! Mind you in front of ...

Food Truck Festival a success

To the Editor, What a great day we had last Saturday at the Weirton Food Truck Festival! Despite the hot temperatures, our community came out and supported the class of 2020 at Weir High School and it’s very much appreciated. There are so many people that had a part in the success of this ...

Thankful for community support

To the Editor, On behalf of All Saints Greek Orthodox Church, the Rev. Frank Milanese, our faithful volunteers, parishioners and parish council, we wish to extend our sincerest and most heartfelt thanks to the entire Weirton and surrounding communities for their patronage at our 32nd-annual ...

Time to stop crying wolf

To the Editor, When I was a youngster my mother told me a story of the little boy who cried “wolf.” Briefly, it tells of a young lad who knew that all the neighbors would come running to the rescue if a wolf should be threatening the flock of lambs each of them had raised. The boy called ...

Why are you not seeing and hearing the truth?

To the Editor, I can no longer sit back and not say anything. For too long I have seen our president say lies and the public buys whatever he says, hook, line and sinker. The letter last week from Gail Wickstrom has me shaking my head. Did you not hear what Mueller said in his report. ...

Follow the money

To the Editor, In 2016, the Hancock County Animal Shelter Excess Levy account balance had grown to over $365,000. Many county taxpayers believe the commissioners’ desire to gain access to this money motivated them to not renew the shelter contract with the nonprofit that operated it for the ...

Be careful what you wish for

To the Editor, All parties must think progressively, whether Democrat, Republican or independent. It’s the 21st century, not a century of covered wagons — we are going to the moon. There are 330 million people and issues need to be addressed promptly if America is to survive, including ...

Looking for a witch doctor

To the Editor, In an orgy of frustration to remove President Donald Trump from office, Democrats have stopped at nothing to keep costly investigations going. After the $25 million Mueller report found Trump innocent of Russian influence, litigious liberals and a biased media doggedly persist ...

Issues not being addressed

To the Editor, It’s happened. Headlines in all the local papers. Church in crisis. So, let me add my humble comments. Big question asked by many. How did Bransfield get away with it? Lay Catholic Voices for Change asked for two new rules demanded by Archbishop Lori’s investigation. ...

Theocrats and hypocrisy

To the Editor, I’m way past having been done with these hypocritical evangelicals and religious nitwits attempting to force their indoctrination onto people of other beliefs and scientific disciplines. They try to claim some sort of moral high ground by invoking their belief structure onto ...

Accusations are a tiring game

To the Editor, As I write this, Internet liberals are afire with outraged sympathy for 75-year-old E. Jean Carroll, the latest in President Trump’s apparently endless slew of victims. According to Carroll, Trump raped her in a Manhattan department store dressing room in 1996. Typically, ...

Marina brings joy

To the Editor, I am elated to hear about the new water pipes that are going to replace the old ones throughout the Steubenville Marina. I so enjoy the peaceful beauty of the marina’s wildlife and nature surrounding me, the rabbits, geese, chipmunks, ducks and the gentle breeze rustling ...

Widespread corruption

To the Editor, Ms. McCasky in her letter to the editor two Sundays ago chided Steubenville’s Bishop Monforton for not speaking out about what I presume was the moral and financial malfeasance of former bishop Bransfield of the Wheeling/Charleston Diocese. She said the diocese was a ...

Let’s teach true facts

To the Editor, Consider sexual orientation for America from the colonial days to the 20th and 21st centuries presidents. Ben Franklin, the debaucher’s limerick: “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” He was let into the bedrooms of many women after the ...

River sweep a great event

To the Editor, A wonderful Ohio River Sweep took place on June 15 at the Steubenville Marina. As a frequent visitor I would like to say thank you to all who have participated in the event, and to also say what an amazing job that was done. Now, if only the fire trucks could come in and hose ...

Questions about the church

To the Editor, Wake up, people of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Follansbee, before we lose two good people. Everyone can see that we have two of the best people in the church, ones who any church in the Ohio Valley would love to have, namely Joel John and Attillio Boni. Our church at ...

Don’t forget Allegiance Sunday

To the Editor, The George Washington Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution is once again asking churches, synagogues and spiritual organizations to take part in Allegiance Sunday. Allegiance Sunday is a special day, unlike any of the other days we observe. Memorial Day specifically ...
