Letters to the Editor

Accusations are a tiring game

To the editor: As I write this, Internet liberals are afire with outraged sympathy for 75-year-old E. Jean Carroll, the latest in President Trump’s apparently endless slew of victims. According to Carroll, Trump raped her in a Manhattan department store dressing room in 1996. Typically, ...

Let’s put America first

To the editor: Why wasn’t there an American flag at the Democratic debates? The June 26 debate was dumb, the June 27 debate dumber. Tonto y retonto for those that speak Spanish. One candidate wants free abortions for trans-gender men. What? I enjoyed when they all raised their right hands in ...

June has been a great month

To the editor: From 18th century gunsmithing to Greek dancing to the melodies of crooner Dean Martin to the music of the Funk City Band, festival sounds rang out this past month in Steubenville. And those sounds brought folks to the downtown from around the area and beyond — as well as lots ...

Have mercy on their souls

To the editor: In November 1945 the first of the Nuremberg trials was held. They lasted for 11 difficult months, but they were necessary so the world would never forget, never repeat the atrocities of Nazi Germany. But, today it seems as though some have forgotten. They’ve forgotten that ...

Let’s teach true facts

To the editor: Consider sexual orientation for America from the colonial days to the 20th and 21st centuries presidents. Ben Franklin, the debaucher’s limerick: “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” He was let into the bedrooms of many women after the ...

We stood with Dayton

To the editor: When storms devastated the Dayton area the last week in May, I asked the help of the community to collect necessities and other items and transport them across the state. Area residents really responded — we stood with Dayton. I’d like to say thanks to Mount Zion Baptist ...

Postal worker does great job

To the editor: I live on Lincoln Avenue in Steubenville, and I want people to know about a letter carrier named A.J. Williams, who is a very good man. He cares about the people on his route, and he speaks to everyone he sees on his route. Williams is the best we could have, and the Postal ...

River sweep a great event

To the editor: A wonderful Ohio River Sweep took place on June 15 at the Steubenville Marina. As a frequent visitor I would like to say thank you to all who have participated in the event, and to also say what an amazing job that was done. Now, if only the fire trucks could come in and hose ...

Just vote them out of office

To the editor: A letter from a pro-choice, pro-abortion, feminist atheist has advised us to “fight for what you believe in.” Her polemic was obviously meant as encouragement for the local left-wing progressive coven (“Fight for what you believe in,” June 16.) Yet, this advice is ...

A great day for Indian Creek

To the editor: Indian Creek would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for donating their time and making a contribution to our annual golf outing. Thanks to them, the 15th-annual Indian Creek Golf Outing was a huge success. All proceeds will benefit the Indian Creek ...
