Letter to the Editor

Editor,   It’s hard for me to grasp that our mountaintop will be filled with trucks … not only going east and west over or under Rte 32, but also traveling north and south along Rte 32, which will be turned into the “Truck Route.”  When DOH chose the ROPA...

Letter to the Editor: Preserve our Slogans! 

Editor, Preserve our Slogans!      During the 70s, I sat on the porch of my Ritchie Co. grandparents’ house in Ellenboro WV watching Corridor D being chiseled into the hillside overlooking US 50. The promise then was, ‘economic development”. In a lifetime since, all I’ve noticed is Pete’s Dairyette is gone, replaced with a Dairy Queen. The numerous locally owned glass factories,...
