Letters to the Editor

A successful Thanksgiving dinner in Weirton

To the Editor, There was another miracle on Main Street in Weirton this year! The annual community Thanksgiving Dinner, which is organized and sponsored by the Weirton Ministerial Association, was held on Thanksgiving Day at the Greater Weirton Senior Center. The WMA would like to thank ...

Veteran offers thanks

To the Editor, I would like to say thank you to all the people who made the clothing drive for veterans and their families another huge success. Helping out people who honestly need a helping hand like the veterans and their families has always been a priority with me. And thanks to all ...

Holiday bazaar a success

To the Editor, I would like to thank the folks that attended our Holiday Bazaar and Lunch at St. Thomas on Saturday, November 23. In spite of the rain, we were successful. We offered three soups and three sandwiches. We ran out of the bean and ham soup and sloppy joes, which was a good ...

Expand recognition of coaches

To the Editor, I am writing to express my concern about our community’s recognition of coaches and their hard work from the past and the present. I would like for this to be in response to the annual hall of fame inductions that takes place at Brooke High School. My name is Jenna Cooper, I ...

Let’s hope they don’t succeed

To the Editor, In an ongoing saga of fighting for what is right, an opportunity once again arises for the industrious ant to experience the joy of being of service to the grasshopper disinclined to work. To paraphrase an old saying, let the ant toil whilst the grasshopper delights us all with ...

The fall of America?

To the Editor, Yes, it’s true. It is all Hillary Clinton’s fault. If the Democratic Party had not chosen to try and elect the first woman president in American history, Donald John Trump would still be selling real estate. Let’s hope the president that was not to be is not the chosen ...

Watching our history

To the Editor, Cal Thomas’ column, 11-19-19, “Forgetting our own history.” The problem with teaching America’s history? Up until the 1950s, everyone was teaching the mythical history of America. “Who chopped down the cherry tree?” The Civil War, Andersonville, Sherman’s March ...

U.S. now a rudderless ship

To the Editor, There is a rudderless ship in the world today, and it’s called the United States of America. President Trump’s eccentric behavior cannot continue to be shielded as that’s Trump being Trump. He has vowed on several occasions to take the oil in the Middle East. Coming ...

Help those in need this Thanksgiving

To the Editor, The Bible tells us that we are to love and take care of each other. The Bible clearly teaches us in James 2:14-18, “14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and ...

November is National Hospice Month

To the Editor, The concept of hospice started in Europe in the 11th century. Hospices were originally a place of hospitality for the sick, wounded or dying and even travelers or pilgrims on a journey. It wasn’t until 1967, when Dr. Cicely Saunders established the first hospice in the United ...

Socialism brings stagnation

To the Editor, What will happen if socialism ultimately prevails here in the United States? Some say we’re there already. But not quite. For all those who’ve swallowed the promises of peace and prosperity, qualities supposedly inherent in socialism, a brief glance at history is in ...

Support appreciated

To the Editor, On behalf of the Fritz Williams Memorial Scholarship fund, I would like to thank everyone who sent donations in memory of Nick Dragisich Jr. Your donations and support for the family was very much appreciated.. Willlam Curenton Chairman, scholarship committee

Wreaths coming to Paris Cemetery

To the Editor, Noon on Dec. 14 will mark the first year of Paris Cemetery’s participation in the Wreaths Across America’s annual campaign as they join in remembering the fallen, honoring those who serve and teaching the values of freedom. The original laying of the wreaths began by an ...

Liberals turn to emotion over logic

To the Editor, “Liberals never understand that what they’re doing is wrong, or doesn’t work; they just think they haven’t been allowed to do enough of it, yet.” — Jim Quinn California is on fire, in the dark, has the largest homeless and illegal populations in America and has ...

To the Editor, I’d like thank all the members of the Top of WV CVB, the board of directors, the county commissioners, Weirton interim city manager, city council members, and the mayor of Wellsburg who attended the Top of WV CVB membership meeting on October 22 at the Weirton Millsop Center. ...

Neighborhood in need of a deli

To the Editor, I see going on almost four years our deli has been closed down and turned into a storage building which should never be allowed. The people on Marland Heights need a deli, especially now that bad weather is coming on fast. Why should seniors be forced to go down the steep ...

Needing a better deal

To the Editor, Under President Trump, America is headed for a train wreck and is picking up speed. William Barr, attorney general, traveled across the ocean on some kind of cockeyed investigation of investigating the investigators of Russian collusion in the 2016 election to help Trump ...

UNICEF support appreciated

To the Editor, I would like to publicly thank the Weirton Shop and Save for allowing the Church Women United to collect for UNICEF outside their store on October 25. The money not only helps children in foreign countries, but the U.S. also. It can provide clean water and medicines in poor ...
