  • Trial by media, not how it is drawn up

    Ben Roethlisberger’s guilt remains in question. If nothing else, he is guilty of extremely poor judgment and of being too big for his britches. However, no state or federal laws contain any punishment for poor judgment, being a jerk, or any other things that are known for sure about Big Ben. 

    We can speculate about what he actually did with the young woman who was in the bar though she was under age. Of course, I know that being underage is not reason enough to be mistreated, I am just saying she was somewhere she wasn’t supposed to be.

  • Kuster is ‘best possible choice for District Court Judge’

    To the editor:

    I am happy to endorse Bill Kuster, candidate for District Court Judge. Bill has been a practicing attorney for 26 years in Harrison County and surrounding counties. As an active member of this community, he has held the positions of Assistant Commonwealth Attorney under Jack Keith, Assistant County Attorney under Bill Probus, and has served three terms as the Harrison County Attorney. His vast knowledge, integrity, and experience dealing with thousands of cases certainly qualifies Bill Kuster to be the best possible choice for District Court Judge.

  • County attorney is wasting time filing political complaints

    To the editor:

    Your “Sign Dispute” story on the front page of your newspaper left me wondering if Bill Kuster doesn’t have a lot better things to do with his time as our County Attorney other than filing a complaint against his political opponent for having a campaign sign larger than his. Shouldn’t he be prosecuting criminals and getting the drug dealers off of our streets downtown?
