Letters to the Editor

Farewell to Donald Trump

To the editor: I am sorry to report there are ghosts and goblins or devils that have caused the upheaval in the world. It’s plain and simple — there are enough evil people in the world to end the world as we know it. It’s not a question of whether Donald Trump is good or bad. He is ...

Daughter’s desire to honor her father

To the editor: I want to first of all say thank you to the community for the outpouring of condolences and support for my father, Dr. Frank L. Petrola — it is very much appreciated. My father was an extraordinary man whose work ethic far exceeded all others. In the many capacities that he ...

Adena Lions say thanks

To the editor: The 2020 Adena Lions Club Christmas Giving Tree Project was very successful — 51 children received generous Christmas gifts, and 20 hams were distributed to their families. Thank you to the Adena Branch of Consumers Bank, the Harrisville Post Office and Mrs. J’s Country ...

Choosing country over party

To the editor: My thanks to Chris Gagin, former chairman of the Belmont County Republican Party, for choosing country over party in his letter of Dec. 13 (“Don’t ignore facts: Trump lost election.”) As for the Trump followers, they seem to enjoy the notoriety that comes from ...

Mourning and distress

To the editor: I read a local Steelworkers union building could be demolished. It’s sad to know its only significance is the legacy of the Clintons, Obuma and Biden favoring foreign workers over our own. I wonder if Hunter Biden will be awarded the contract to raze the building? The ...

Feel free to join parade

To the editor: On Saturday, Nov. 7, the state of Pennsylvania announced that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had secured enough legal ballots that his statewide vote lead was insurmountable, and that he would therefore be the recipient of all of that state’s electors. This ...

Don’t ignore facts: Trump lost election

To the editor: Being a Republican used to mean being rational. We were more concerned with facts than feelings. But there’s one fact some Republicans are having trouble with: Donald Trump lost this election fair and square. Now he seems hell-bent on bringing our party and country down with ...

A Browns resurgence

To the editor: As a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League, I am pleased to report that after an extremely long, and quite discouraging drought, the Browns currently have achieved their best record since their 1999 return as an NFL expansion team following the ...
