What's wrong with this city? Every building that gets demoed is replaced with a parking lot. For what? Whats there to park for? There's always a empty space on the street, or in one of the hundreds of parking lots. And there's unease buildings that should be sold to franchise, and there's too much vinyl. Someone save downtown!

And someone needs to tell the mayor not to tear down any more buildings unless he has a plan to develop it, blacktop doesn't count.

Wellsburg is dead. Drugs, poverty, no jobs. I'm so glad I left.

I'm glad I left too. I only miss Drover's and DiCarlo's.

When you have no jobs people leave for other cities so they can find work. Sad thing is the people that don't want to work stay in Wheeling and sit out on their stoops or roam up and down 12th St to 16 st.

It's not that people don't want to live and work here, it's because the steel industry owned by greedy republicans wanted to "save money" by moving everything to china. Now there is no money or jobs since everything is going out of the country instead of circulating throuought the country like it did when everything was made here.

The steel industry "owned by greedy Republicans" just don't care about you, do they "NightFury"

If they --own the business-- then they get to decide --where to operate it--. It's theirs. They owe you or me nothing.

But Hell, if you think we need a steel mill here, then you just go ahead and start one up. This is America -- you still can.

One of the reasons there's no business here anymore is the incompetent, clueless doofus in the White House that you voted for.

If you want to start getting the economy back, stop voting for that socialist loser.

What do you mean "this city"? Widen your view a bit, it's not just Wheeling. It's the whole state. Then widen it again and look at the whole country...

Amen, Joe. My fiance' and I come back once a year at Christmas to see our families. The only good part about coming back to Wellsburg is getting Drover's wings and a tray of DiCarlo's to take home.

Blaming either political party for the world global economy is silly. Many democrats as well as republicans have investments in steel, coal and other industries.If you manufacture a product here in the US, people won't buy it when they can get the same product at Walmart for half the price thanks to Chinese labor costs. If you eliminated unions the product would be cheaper but still not as competitive. That's why so many companies have moved overseas, US labor is too high to compete globally.
