Letters to the Editor

Sharing a different perspective

Dear Editor, At first, after reading the letter to the editor, “Restrain Netanyahu,” I had no intentions of responding, but the more I thought about the opinion of the writer and how much I disagreed with his assessment of Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel, I decided I wanted to look at ...

Solution To Roads

Dear Editor, All Martins Ferry needs to do: Declare our city a third world country for at least a year. Federal money (our money) will pour in at a fantastic rate. But first, our congressman will need to have a fact-finding mission to Martins Ferry by way of Paris, London or other favorable ...

It’s My Turn

Dear Editor, Isn’t life a bowl of cherries? Everything is fine and all is well, when suddenly it begins to happen. You know what I mean: You haven’t had a toothache for 20 years or the fridge has lasted since the stone age. The washer and dryer have been operating fine since Nixon was ...

Keep working toward Medicare for All

Dear Editor, Big Pharmaceutical companies are at it again. Already this year, 60 pharmaceutical companies jumped prices of over 300 drugs, some by as much as four times the rate of inflation. And the worst part is, it’s perfectly legal. If a pharmaceutical company wants to inflate the ...

Jesus still heals

Dear Editor, I am here to tell you that there is nothing too impossible for the Lord to do! He is still in the healing business. On June 7, 2012, I was told that I had stage 4B sinus cancer. That was a day that I will never forget. Six different doctors at UPMC in Pittsburgh told me I was ...

Letters to the Editor – Ninja Warrior

Dear Editor, I’ve been watching American Ninja Warrior from my lair on the sofa. Soft drink in hand and a bowl of chips handy, I’m inspired by the athletic prowess of these beautiful people. As most Americans, I’ve let myself go, falling prey to a fast food lifestyle and poor diet like ...

Letters to the Editor – A few quotes

Dear Editor, I would like to share a few quotes with you. First one from Theodore Roosevelt: “To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” The second one is from Marcus Cicero: “A ...

Letters to the Editor – Stephen Miller

America has betrayed our founders

Dear Editor, America has betrayed our founders! America has betrayed our God! Christians escaped religious persecution in Europe and with God’s divine intervention, created our great nation. Ten-plus miracles by God sustained our founders during our Revolutionary War. We were outnumbered 10 ...

The National Media

Dear Editor, At the end of the presidential campaign of 1960, President Eisenhower gave a cryptic and prophetic warning to the people of the United States. He said, “beware the military-industrial complex.” Now that we have come almost 60 years from that date I would believe President ...
