Letters to the Editor

Festival of Nations a special event

To the editor: Is the weather getting you down? Are the children driving you crazy? Escape from your routine. Take a one-day trip to a foreign country. No need for a packed suitcase, passport or travel plans. Just drive or walk by following the flags posted along Weirton’s Main Street ...

Page family says thank you

To the editor: The family of Jonah Page would like to thank the people of Brooke County, along with many businesses, for their support and compassion. The spaghetti dinner held at Beech Bottom Community Christian Church for Jonah was a tremendous success thanks to your generosity. God bless ...

Think about arming teachers

To the editor: Recently this country found itself mourning, yet again, the loss of several innocent lives at the hands of a mass shooter with a semi-automatic weapon acquired legally. As usual there’d been warning signs and as usual there was blame looking to be placed and cries of “too ...

Let’s take control of the situation

To the editor: It seems urgent for all of us Americans to become listeners and to take some serious action on behalf of all citizens — especially our children and youth. If we have eyes to see and ears to hear, we know that our teenagers are now calling us to take real and effective action ...

Democrats back in Jefferson County

To the editor: I am proud to be a part of the “reboot” of the Jefferson County Democratic Party. Last month, I took an oath to serve, along with many others, as we were appointed to the party’s central and executive committees. Many of us will represent the citizens of the precinct in ...

We need real leadership

To the editor: Complex problems are not solved with simple, single-focused solutions, but rather by layering risk mitigation strategies that address their multiple causes. For example, when Americans recognized a growing (and unacceptable) number of deaths and serious harm caused by ...

Love shown to monsignor

To the editor: On Jan. 12, Monsignor William Cornelius left this life, after having served the Diocese of Steubenville for 59 years as a Catholic priest. Monsignor Cornelius had touched countless lives, and was beloved by many, as was made quite evident during his brief illness. Molly, ...

Holy Spirit can help

To the editor: I went to a meeting not long ago and said that Steubenville is a very unique place. The reply was, “How do you come to that conclusion?” The people in this community of less than 18,000 people are more unique than what they think. We cannot continue to operate in ...
