Letters to the Editor

Food a help in cancer fight

To the editor: This is for a very, very special woman and all the people who help her. On the third Saturday of every month, food is given to people who are fighting cancer if they wish to receive it. The food we receive really helps — with all the expensive medication I have to pay for, ...

Pool provides many opportunities

To the editor: The city of Steubenville needs to make Belleview Pool operational this summer for multiple reasons. Not only does it provide something for the city’s youth to do during the summer months while school is not in session, but, looking at the other side of the fence, the pool ...

Sharing more railroad memories

To the editor: This is a reflection of the way things used to be. Recent news reports of the historical construction of the Fort Steuben Hotel brought back memories of my old buddy Harry Sutherin. As you read, you will see his connection with the building of the Fort Steuben Hotel. Known as ...

Coalition misses the point

To the editor: Attending the first meeting of the Jefferson County Progressive Democratic Coalition, I have never seen so many people wrong with such passion. They only like freedom of speech if it’s theirs or you agree with them. Yet I threw no pie, shouted no one down, called no one ...

Buckeye Local needs levy

To the editor: It is a shame that with all the efforts being set forth to inform the public on our upcoming emergency operating levy in the Buckeye Local School District that very few have attended the various meetings. Each building in the district has or will have scheduled meetings to ...

Donor registry offers hope

To the editor: Did you know 85 percent of your fellow Ohioans would want their organs, eyes and tissue donated to save and heal someone in need? Yet only 59 percent of Ohioans are registered donors. Why is there such a gap? How can you help close it? This April, during national Donate Life ...

Holiday Splendor a success

To the editor: Due to illness and unforeseen circumstances, thank-you notes were not sent to all of the merchants and others who donated to make our largest fundraiser a success. The Wintersville Woman’s Club sponsored Holiday Splendor, an annual luncheon with vendors, a 50-50 drawing, ...
