to all of the groups that held Veterans Day ceremonies over the past week in the Tri-State area. Some great events were held to salute our veterans and thank them for their service to our country.
to Thanks! Plain and Simple, a group that organized an event last week honoring West Virginia "Rosie the Riveters" at Shepherd University. Lt. Col. Martine Dierckx, a Belgian official, thanked the Rosies for their efforts. Some much-deserved recognition for the women who worked on the home front during World War II.
to Washington County officials for waiting to do something about the stretch of Eastern Boulevard that has been the scene of at least six accidents in the last six months. The county's traffic engineers studied the intersection of Eastern Boulevard and Chartridge Drive and determined it had visibility problems, heavy traffic volume and speeds too high for the sight distance. The time for talking is over. It's time to take immediate action.
