Letters to the Editor

Think of others

To the Editor, This is ridiculous that people are so greedy and selfish, that they have to hoard food and personal things. Leave some for other people. Do your once-a-week shopping and don’t hoard. That’s the problem, the media blows everything out of control. It’s nice to know ...

President has to remain calm

To the Editor, Every president has his moments; some good, some not so good. Responsible for both. The travesty under the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Mistep after mistep, tweet after tweet, is starting to take its toll. Trump is doing what he did best in running his business, filing ...

They want us to panic

To the Editor, I work in an elementary school. Last month, there was a period where fully one-fifth of our student body was out with the flu. Staff was getting sick. It was bad, and not much different, in schools around the country. Like any other virulent illness, flu infects schools, work ...

A chance to reverse our priorities

To the Editor, The first Commandment says, “I am the Lord your God, thou shall not have false gods before me.” God is talking about false gods or idols being substituted for and therefore taking the place of our authentic God — our Creator and Father. The first three Commandments are ...

Too much spending

To the Editor, In 2016, the Hancock County Commission offered the nonprofit, which had operated the animal shelter for 20 years, a total of $188,000 to operate the county animal shelter consisting of $88,000 from the “County General Account” and $100,000 from the “Shelter Excess Levy”. ...

Bloomberg’s disappointment

To the Editor, Imagine the bitter disappointment Mike Bloomberg must now be experiencing after his dismal performance in the Super Tuesday primaries. Except for the American Samoa caucus, he did not see a single first-place outcome. During his brief campaign, this Democrat spent enough to buy ...

Stay dry and keep calm

To the Editor, Thoughts from the wild side: ¯ “Nature Pharmacy,” Smithsonian, Jan.-Feb. 2020: Strains or streptomyces bacteria have been found in soil grown in a lab at Swansea University in Wales. They are so new to science they haven’t been named. But scientists are zeroing in on a ...

Help those who defend

To the Editor, A few weeks ago, a former boss of mine approached me and asked me to write about veterans who served our country. So...here goes it. I served for a short time at the age of 19. Others served their time, and served it well. As young men and women signed to do their duties ...

Another reason Weirton’s special

To the Editor, On Feb. 22 I witnessed the most beautiful thing in Weirton. May he rest in Peace and my condolences to Nick Cosenza’s family, for the recent passing of Nick. Sadly Nick Cosenza passed away on Feb. 16. For those who are like me, and didn’t know Nick personally, I wish I ...

Destroying our democracy

To the Editor, President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial was acquitted, but he is not vindicated. Trump had his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani working behind the scenes with other government representatives to influence the new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to find dirt on ...

Salvation Army appreciates support

To the Editor, Thanks to the community for your support on the recent “Just in Time’ Feed America food program. With your help, we were able to serve over 100 families in our area with fresh apples, oranges and pears. Included in the food boxes were several pounds of frozen, precooked ...

Trump has another option

To the Editor, If Donald J. Trump wins a second term, we the people deserve whatever kind of discombobulated government we get. When asked, Ben Franklin replied, “We are leaving you a republic, if you can hold it.” Trump’s version of his presidency is “I did it my way.” Forever ...

Technology, lifestyle not for all

To the Editor, That is ridiculous what’s going on out in Iowa. Go back to the old-fashioned method. That’s the trouble with this modern technology, and then I wonder about the old-fashioned method also. Don’t tell me there isn’t corruption going on sometimes. I can’t believe how ...

Thoughts for the 21st century

To the Editor, Welcome to the 21st century. Fracking: We are changing the contour of Earth, leading to grave consequences. 21st century and civilization: New technology is moving at warp speed with no solutions to the basics. What are we to do? Combat the destruction of the planet from ...

A bunch of government waste

To the Editor, This is ridiculous with the Senate hearings on TV. They have been going on now for a long time. I’m sick of it, as nothing is going to come of it! That’s the trouble. Our government just takes over everything, without any regard to our citizens. They are just throwing ...

Prepare to see consequences

To the Editor, Recently, I learned that Sen. Joe Manchin is undecided on the matter of impeachment of President Trump. While this may appear to be leadership by many, I find it a bit disturbing. I have contacted Manchin on a number of matters to learn of his opinion but have always been told ...

Constitution is clear

To the Editor, I hear too many supposedly constitutionalists giving the president a blank check on his rights. There are no ifs, buts or maybes in the Constitution. It’s written what the founders decreed as law. Yet today the Alan Dershowitz’s in the judiciary try to imply what the ...

The pain of loss

To the Editor, Have you ever been in a situation where someone close to you has died? A friend, a neighbor, a family member, a co-worker, or just a mere acquaintance, or a cousin, grandparent, an aunt or an uncle. It comes sudden, without warning. And it is usually when you least expect it. ...

Transparency needed in county

To the Editor, In July 2016, the Hancock County Commission refused to renew their animal shelter operation contract with the nonprofit who had operated the county shelter for over twenty years. Then, they immediately requested a legal opinion from the W.Va. Attorney General’s Office ...

A bad game of chess

To the Editor, President Donald Trump is playing a bad game of chess on the world stage. With his leadership and the backing of some conservative pundits on the Fox News Channel and some Republican senators, he is backing America to the edge of being recognized as the bad guys on the ...
