Many helped make concerts a success

To the editor: The sound of music from the Berkman Amphitheater has died away, but the memories linger on. I and Old Fort Steuben Project President Jerry Barilla want to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors, volunteers and faithful audience members for another great season of the ...

Utility series hits home

To the editor: Thank you, Herald-Star, for Paul Giannamore’s four-part series on the challenges facing the Steubenville utility system. His reports provided the depth and scope that only a newspaper can provide. The challenges ahead are many and complex, but at least I now have a full ...

Someone like you for Congress

To the editor: Her name is Shawna Roberts and her mantra is “A New Leader for a New Future — Someone Like You!” Roberts was born and raised in Chicago. She’s a midwesterner like us. She always dreamed of living on a farm. Her dream was realized in 2002 when she and her family moved to ...
