Letters to the Editor

Show your carrier kindness

To the editor: Have you looked at the news stand price of the Herald-Star at the top right corner of the first page lately? If you would buy your newspaper at your local store, it would cost 75 cents a day for Monday through Saturday. The Sunday paper would cost $2 at the newsstand. That ...

Entertainment center good news

To the editor: I’m excited there’s going to be an entertainment center in Jefferson County. The entertainment center will be a great addition to our area. All ages will enjoy themselves there. Unless you travel to Pittsburgh or Robinson Township, there is not much to do around here. ...

There’s some scary stuff out there

To the editor: Bye-bye Biden and his drug-addicted, dishonorably discharged from Navy son Hunter. Demshevik presidential candidates want us to be vegans, yet they flip and eat steaks at county fairs to solicit votes. Hypocrites, but that’s their modus operandi: Do as I say, not as I do. Not ...

Johnson brings common sense

To the editor: On Nov. 5, the residents of Steubenville will decide who will represent the city for the next four years as council at large. I believe Michael R. Johnson is the best choice. During his term as 2nd Ward councilman, Mike was constantly searching for ways to improve the city. ...

Reed right for Edison

To the editor: Knowing David Reed for 30-plus years, I can confidently cast my vote for him for the Edison Local Board of Education and suggest you do the same. He is a very involved father of two who serves the public as a volunteer firefighter with the East Springfield Fire Department, had ...

Predictions prove to be inaccurate

To the editor: The next Ice Age. Acid rain. Global warming. I have lived through all of these predicted changes that were going to destroy the Earth as we knew it. None of them occurred. Now global warming has been renamed climate change. What is the science behind the claims of climate ...

More questions about diocese

To the editor: Why are federal authorities involved in the Diocese of Steubenville criminal investigation of one person? Diocese of Steubenville attorney Tom Wilson said in the Oct. 5 edition of the Herald-Star that federal authorities had been involved in the investigation. How long have ...

Your carpets can harm you

To the editor: Beware of your carpet — this is a brief breakdown of my experience. I had new carpet installed in October, 2017. Then the nightmare began through May 2019 and beyond. Within a month, fatigue set in and weakness, which got worse as time went on. Then severe sinus ...

Hahn deserves second term

To the editor: I urge Steubenville voters to retain in the office of Councilwoman at Large Kimberly Hahn, who worked so tirelessly to promote changes and projects for the betterment of our community. Hahn, the only woman on our City Council, has served for the past four years, but four ...
