Each week lately it seems there is a new terrible crime to report on the front page of the Wetzel Chronicle. While this week is no different, we're thankful that this week the stories are about alleged crimes that resulted in arrests and no physical harm.
So this week we would like to take a moment to thank our area law enforcement officers for their hard work fighting crime in an area that most think should be rather crime-free. Obviously that isn't true, but you work to keep it quashed as much as possible and for that we are thankful.
This week in particular we are impressed that a murder-for-hire scheme was exposed and the source of bomb threats was revealed. These seem like they would be particularly hard cases to solve, yet you did so. Now, like the popular television show Law & Order, it is up to the court system to provide fair and just consequences.
