Letters to the editor

Keep growth going

We’re writing in response to last week’s letter regarding proposed gaming machines on property we own and plan to develop in Williamstown. First, we feel like we all agree on one goal: we all want the best for Williamstown. We hope, over our years with the restaurant, residents have seen ...

There’s still a chance

Reminiscent of a third world dictatorship was the 2020 election, with illegal ballots, rigged voting machines, etc. Reportedly, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, in violation of federal election laws, spent millions of dollars in select liberal cities — $500 million in Atlanta alone — to bribe ...

Getting back to the truth

Our national nightmare is over. Our conservative-leaning Supreme Court has affirmed our democracy by refusing to overturn our election results. The election was not “rigged” and we can now work to heal rather than to tear our country apart. Perhaps Congress can again learn to work together ...

Please share your memories

I would like to take the opportunity to THANK all of my students over the past 21 years for enriching my life with memories I will hold forever and for those staff members who I call my friends. With my retirement from Parkersburg South High School, my plan is to write a book called, “If The ...

Take time to do research

As I put pen to paper this week, I want to say how fortunate I have been to have three uncensored letters printed in letters to the editor. In these letters, I have voiced a lot of my own personal opinions, and I thank those who took time to read my letters. This week, I ask you, if you have ...

Trump lost — get over it

I am an Independent American voter who has voted in every election since the fifties. I have voted both parties, believe in justice and fairness for all, and that we, as united Americans, are entitled to be free thinkers. I have, for a long time, been scanning a letter to the editor ...

‘Build back better’

If you think ‘build back better’ is a cute saying that Joe Biden came up with, you’d be wrong. It has been around since 2015 when the Third U.N. world Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction adopted it as a framework for “disaster recovery, risk reduction and sustainable ...

An illegitimate president

In a Newsmax/McLaughlin poll, 34 percent of people polled who voted for Biden were unaware of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against him and were unaware of the allegations Biden, his son Hunter and brother James received illegal money from China, Russia and the Ukraine. In the same ...

Another gambling place?

Petitions are being circulated to citizens requesting the Planning Commission deny Christine Bender, owner of DaVinci’s restaurant a variance to add a gaming facility in the proposed development on the restaurant lot, bringing in buses. We do not want our town to be known for ...

A message to vandals

To the lily-livered, crooked as a dog’s hind leg scoundrels who destroyed the Christmas lights and display at Southwood Park this week: The volunteers and personnel who donated their time, money and creative skills to make the display a festive and heartfelt happy holiday feature deserve ...

Socialism is no threat

The Dec. 5 News and Sentinel printed a letter to the editor about socialism. Most of that letter was dictionary definition and nothing else. It didn’t include a word about how socialism originated and not a word about socialism’s successes or failures. Why was that letter even written? ...

Georgia runoff is vital

The slaughter houses jeopardized workers lives when they were forced to work in dangerous conditions due to the COVID-19. Others, will be facing those lingering effects of the virus that survived the infection, now that side effects from the infection have been discovered. If the Republican ...

Remember Scrooge and the Grinch

Remember the favorite Christmas tales: “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “A Christmas Carol?” Even the Grinch relented and brought back the Christmas items. Even Scrooge remembered Christmas and gave Cratchit a living wage. Only Congress and the president remain heartless, immovable, ...

What about voter fraud?

This is a follow up to a letter in the Sunday, Nov. 29 newspaper titled “Where to begin?” Obama never did release his birth certificate. During a press conference, Obama once waved a paper in his hand claiming it was his birth certificate, but Obama has never been a paragon of ...

Divided we fall

I ask myself, “Why are we so divided by discrimination?” I believe a lot of this starts with ourselves. Instead of saying we are Americans, we choose to say, “I’m African, Irish, German, Mexican, Jewish” or any other ethnic group we choose. What we don’t ask ourselves is why does ...

Crime and punishment

The local paper printed several politically-oriented letters to the editor on Nov. 28. A couple of those letters were mailed in from Far-Right-Fantasy-Land and they repeated much of the Donald Trump conspiracy nonsense and covered nearly all of his lunatic lies about voter fraud and fake ...

A look at socialism

Every week I read a letter saying how bad the Republicans are and how evil they are, but compared to the Democrats, they seem like they are the party for this country. It is sad when one person has to go back to 2007 and call Trump a liar because he questioned the birthplace of Obama. Oh! I ...

Trump kept promises

Liberals claim President Trump lies every time he opens his mouth, while ignoring Biden’s lies (and his gaffes) and the lies against Trump reported by CNN, MSNBC, etc. No one is without faults, but Trump is the most transparent and honest president we’ve had recently. Some of the promises ...

Hungry Hook

I live in a holler known as Hungry Hook A piece of Heaven now invaded by crooks; A place known for its peace and beauty — To rape is now corporate America’s duty. Hickory, hazel and walnut too, add flavor to a venison stew; While turkey, squirrel and rabbit with ramps all supply ...

Where to begin?

On Nov. 21, the News and Sentinel printed a letter titled “Real loss if Biden wins,” which was in response to a letter I wrote on Nov. 15. I love it when I am challenged to defend my position. Gee whiz, where do I start? Let’s start with the truth, which was sadly absent in all 14 ...
