Letters to the Editor

Good riddance

Dear Editor, There are not enough joyous words to express my joy that Trump has been defeated as President of the United States. It is not only being rid of Trump the fraudster, liar, grifter, cheater, impostor, swindler, and on and on that makes me so happy and relieved: It is the ridding ...

Twitter bans

Dear Editor, I would like to comment on the controversy surrounding the media entities who have banned Donald Trump from their platforms. I read an article where an Editor stated that this sets an alarming precedent. I think not! Trump was banned from Facebook and Twitter for speech that ...

Ohio Valley Republicans, keep the faith

Dear Editor, Anti-Trumpers have been looking to remove him from office since his inauguration in 2017. They impeached him over nothing last year and this year, days before his term ends, they want to try to remove him again. Why? They say he called for an insurrection? He did no ...

It is what it is

Dear Editor, It is my belief that Attorney General William Barr resigned his post because to stay, would have made him vulnerable to being goaded by president Trump into jeopardizing his license to practice law. The election debacle in Georgia involves others, including Mr. Raffensperger, ...

Ballots And Batons

Dear Editor,        What a week!  The Times Leader and other scribes read as thriller novels and children stories.  Both seem as whimsical.          My thought to the first idea, “ballots” (thriller) is there must not be enough forensic evidence to prove a fraud or ...

Do you not want fair elections?

Dear Editor, How can we, the American people, sit back and watch as our country is being stolen from us? I am not talking about just an election, which is horrible enough, but our entire way of life will soon be changed, if we sit back and allow our election process become corrupted. ...

An extraordinary public servant

Dear Editor, As an unfortunate result of term limits, Dec. 31, 2020, marked the completion of the tenure of Bellaire native, Ohio state Rep. Jack Cera, serving the 96th Ohio House District, which includes Jefferson, Monroe and parts of Belmont counties, a most impressive legislative career ...

Couple expresses appreciation

Dear Editor, We would like to give Dr. Pollock and his staff at Schiffler Cancer Center a thumbs up. They are kind, respectful and go above and beyond to give the best care possible. We are so lucky to have doctors, nurses, aides and receptionists like this at our local hospital. ...

Fraud

Dear Editor, The evidence presented, with regard to irregularities and illegalities, in the 2020 Presidential election have been brought forward. It has not received legal actions, as it would not merit “Fraud”. The MAGA masses have been dwarfed by the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ...

Time for Change in Ohio Marijuana Law

Dear Editor, My name is Matt Saxton. I live in Knox County. I work in IT and was a journalist prior. I also was in an SUV crash at 3:16 p.m Sunday, Aug. 10, 2003. Since then, I have suffered from degenerative disc disease. I also have chronic radiculopathy. A few years ago, I took opioids ...

Thank you volunteers

Dear Editor, St. Clairsville Area Council of Churches Food Pantry thanks all the volunteers that helped with the Christmas Giving Services held at the First Presbyterian Church and Food Pantry held on December 3rd an 10th at 9:30 am and 1 pm. We served 120 families of the St. ...

Fascism: A major threat

Dear Editor: I was about 12 when I first learned about the holocaust — the slaughter of 6 million Jews — and I have wondered forever more how the German people, a supposed civilized people, could allow a madman like Hitler lead them to commit the greatest crime in the history of the ...

Time remains

Dear Editor, The founders of this nation wisely provided measures for a time such as this. Given three possibilities, honesty, courage, and reason will be necessary for the rectification of this brazen attempt through the election process to overthrow the United States as founded! ...

Reader reacts to letter

Dear Editor, One of your self-ordained religion experts recently shared his Bible research concerning present day events; this has allowed him to determine the November election was stolen. He is distressed that 50 or 60 million people voted to murder babies, to “deny” Israel, to ...

Trump lost

Dear 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 ...

Let them eat cake

Dear Editor, “Let them eat cake,” is what Marie Antoinette said about the starving Parisians in 1789. While unlike late 18th century France America currently has not had cases of actual starvation, but it has, however, been shown that one in eight Americans reported they often didn’t ...

Many thanks for grants

Dear Editor, The students of St. Clairsville-Richland City Schools will have the benefit of new and exciting hands-on activities because of grants like the one supplied by the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio and Gulfport Energy. Several grants were awarded and will be used in the following ...

An attempted coup

Dear Editor, Why is it that current President Donald J. Trump continues his unprecedented, and futile, efforts to attempt to overturn the results of what has, unquestionably, proven to be a completely lawful, fair and democratic election that he lost quite decisively? Sadly, however, he ...

Readers disagree

Dear Editor, This letter is in response to a couple letters and some totally idiotic statements made by the authors! First, one of the frequent authors has accused President Trump of negligent homicide for the totally negligent killing of thousands of COVID-19 victims! First ,Mr. supposedly ...

The Election

ear Editor, I’ve been reading the book of John and Luke in the Bible. I search the Word of God a lot to see what is really happening around us. One of the main things that Jesus impressed upon His disciples was that he would send the Holy Spirit and that he called His spirit, ‘the ...
