Hahaha, would rather be weird than stupid I guess. My father, grandfather
and uncles all worked for the mills. My father still works for weirton
steel and an uncle works for wheeling-pit. My grandfather worked for
bethany steel then back to weirton steel. I would of stayed there if there
was other types of jobs than coal mining or steeling. It's a dieing
industry there and the education system is just as dead. Fear there maybe
little hope for the ohio valley now' days. I took my family back to ohio
in 1998. We stayed for a year and the only good jobs were in pittsburg...
60 miles away. Just couldn't afford to stay.

you find the need for some music. I could ftp or.....
With the asian markets dumping the steel on the global market it's hard
for any one to make a buck with steel. Weirton steel got smart about it
and went to making a lot of specialty steel. That with the fact that they
are the only employee owned steel mill in the world makes it attractive to
buyers it seems. My dad is stil working 5 12's a week with a fat esop
check at the end of the year.
Met as hung out and had a few drinks or met like the Traci Lords kind of
meet? Btw, Traci Lords is from Stuebenville also.......
I'd bet you that she was lieing about being from weirton and she was
really from steubenville. I've met 3 people out here who have claimed to
be from that area and after a little conversation with them they all
admitted that they were from stuebenville. None of them wanted to claim to
be from stuebenville, including myself.
