More environmental regulations are being trashed by Trump so his billionaire buddies can become richer and our environment will continue to degrade. What a guy.

I guess Ms. Gilmore has blocked out the part of her arrest where she was actively resisting and fighting with the officers. She was the one in the wrong. Not the police. And the arrest was in no way brutal. I support our police. They did nothing wrong.

Note to Putnam county. Nobody is taking your guns. And, people are shooting each other in America because they have guns.

That standing invitation to Fredrick County to join West Virginia is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Talk about opening a can of worms, what if Virginia extended an invitation to Jefferson and Berkeley Counties or PA an invitation to Monongahela County?

I do believe Couch Huggins makes enough money to pay his own fine. There’s no need for a “Go Fund Me” page. Get real!

President Trump often proclaims he has been successful, but that is far from being a “liar.” What about “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”? Our elected officials are an imperfect bunch, but then so am I. What I like about the president is his devotion to doing what is best f…

Americans have always felt like they could trust and believe their leaders and national security/intelligence agencies. Trump’s Fake News claims on any true fact that he doesn’t like, plus the thousands of documented lies he has told, has completely destroyed confidence in government of the …

It would be mistake for the Macy’s building to be presupposed as a casino. If you think there are problems now with drug people and crimes in the Town Center, think if what happens when a casino is added to the mix. The Town Center needs more department stores. The basketball tournaments wil…

The main reason that Trump has failed to drain the swamp that is the federal government is that the swamp runs deeper than anyone ever thought possible and controls everything. I don’t think one man can drain the swamp. It will take citizen patriots to finally drain that swamp and to restore…

A street with two names is just ludicrous. Why not just pick a street that doesn’t inconvenience people and let taxpayers vote on it. It’s not rocket science. Well unless you’re the city of Charleston.

Democrats are complaining the president did not “prove” to them how he knew the Iranian general was planning attacks on U.S. interests. In the past, such information given to the House and Senate got out, and the bad person escaped. That is why Pelosi and Schumer were not told.

I’d like to know what exact hateful messages Trump has said or done? Securing our borders? Holding illegals accountable? Putting people to work? I don’t care about what he says about politicians. That’s irrelevant. I care about what he does. Sure some things I don’t necessarily agree with; b…

Hateful words and hateful actions no longer begin at the bottom and filter up. Nowadays they start at the top with Trump’s hateful tweets, with his hateful actions as president and at his campaign rallies, they filter down. He is the worst possible example for decency and respect. He should …

It baffles me that every time a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy after they “only” kill a few people that the argument is never why the bad guy should NOT have a gun, but why more good guys should. Sickening.

There is a process for “refugees” seeking political asylum in our country. We must follow procedure. You can’t just open up the border. Research. European Union opened up borders allowing Middle East “refugees” to migrate all across Europe. Now in many cities it isn’t safe to visit or live.

I’m very antisocialism. I have worked and paid into Social Security since I was 15 years old. Retired now and pay $149 per month out of Social Security for Medicare. Socialism is crap. Work for what you get!

No matter if you don’t like your Christmas present, the least you can do is say thank you. It’s disheartening to give a gift and never hear thanks.

Of coarse the White House refused to cooperate with the Democrat kangaroo court. The verdict was in three years ago before President Trump was even elected. They’re already saying they’ll try again when this attempt fails. President Trump isn’t the problem. It’s the Pelosi led Congress.

So you’ve always voted for the person and not the party and will never vote for a Republican. Why not just say it? Make it simple. You’re a liberal Democrat.

I would like to thank both Judy Crookshanks and David Grubb for their articles in Saturday’s paper. We need more articles like this to explain to the public what is really happening with regard to this president and the Senate Republicans. Thank you so much for doing your job without fear of…

Kudos to the Christmas Tuba Concert and Charleston Metro Band Concert at the Town Center on Saturday. Excellent musicians and beautiful Christmas music.

The liberals were out to stop Trump before he ever got started. Of course they were because they could see clearly that Donald J. Trump is, was and always will be unfit to be president. To pretend like he is not a habitual liar is lying to yourself.

I agree that legal ads need to remain in the local newspaper. However, there needs to be something added. Even in the local paper they are too easy to ignore, and people miss very important information. I’m sure there was something that the Jefferson County folks missed early on in the Rockw…

So you’re telling the Republicans how to run their part of the impeachment process. Comical. Did you watch how Democrats ran theirs? If there was a legitimate case for impeachment, it would have been a bi-partisan vote.

I was a registered Democrat for over 25 years. I was never a liberal. That party chose to leave people like me in favor of the far left liberals. When I vote I am always an anti-liberal voter. I will never vote for nor support a liberal. Never.

Global warming should concern us all. Understanding what is going to happen is hard. If you trust the likes of Don Blankenship over the overwhelming majority of scientists, then you should vote accordingly. Just ask yourself if Don would benefit from misleading you.

Having the right to a job, home and marriage shouldn’t be a special right. But like previous racist laws, laws must be passed to ensure gays have these rights too.

I have figured it out! Trump supporters aren’t as thrilled with him as they are repelled by so-called liberals. This is where their fuel is coming from. It is a vicious cycle that is being fanned by manipulators of our emotions.

Trump’s Twitter behavior shows a total lack of class. He can’t stoop much lower with his disrespectful remarks about people. He is a total disgrace to his elected office. He can dish it out but he sure can’t take it.

The president is displaying his adolescent mind again. Thunberg won Time’s person of the year, so childish Trump immediately projects his anger issues onto the actual child. It is called coveting and used to be considered sinful.

Tax cuts to coal companies for a fund for miners with black lung; tariffs affecting West Virginia exports in hardwoods and automobile parts. Why do West Virginians like Donald Trump?

Richard Nixon wanted to be king, being president wasn’t enough for him and being president is not enough for Donald Trump either, he wants to be a life long dictator like the leaders of the world he most admires: Putin, Kim Jong Il and China’s Xi, ruler for life, people who are brutal murder…

We have verified documented evidence for slavery, Sandy Hook, 9/11, Holocaust, etc. There is none for impeachable crimes and climate change, which indicates hoax.

Republicans no longer believe in democracy. Today it seems they prefer oligarchy, government by a despot supported by the ultra wealthy. Sure, the rich know best, just look at how well Russia runs.

Our democracy is certainly at risk. If the president is allowed to barter tax dollars to help win elections when will we ever have another non-corrupt election? This is why Capito and Manchin must vote to impeach Trump. If they do not their oath is worthless.

I’d like to know when the last time was that the venter who complained about “special protections” because we are “all equal” was fired from a job for being heterosexual or denied an apartment rental because they’re white?

The Constitution provides that we are all created equal. If that is actually true then I believe it’s wrong to ever give anyone special protections because of who or what they are. When you give special treatment or protections to some we create a divide. We are either all equal or we are no…

If your job is outsourced you might’ve been forced to take SNAP or other safety net help from the government. If you are a wealthy farmer like Jim Justice you might get a $125,000 welfare check from the government. Talk about a welfare queen.

Hong Kong protesters displayed American flags. I think their trust in America as a defender of democracy is woefully misplaced nowadays.

Republicans aren’t “allowing Trump to destroy our government.” We are supporting President Trump trying to save it from the socialist Democrats.

Kate Mishkin’s article on the effects of climate change is outstanding in describing the effects of climate change on West Virginia and on the reasons for state-wide resistance to facing it. I pray providence and the voters find state leaders with the vision to make West Virginia remarkable …

Which came first. Chicken or the egg. People claim climate change is caused by fossil fuels. Didn’t climate change create the fossils that later became fossil fuel.

In response to Crouser’s editorial about the wall. If you were on a lake in a boat with 100 holes in the bottom and you had 90 plugs. Wouldn’t plugging 90 holes make more sense than letting all 100 holes flow freely?

My sincere appreciation and thanks to the three individuals that helped me when my wife fell last Monday in the Chick-fil-A parking lot. God bless you.

NASA reports 97 percent of actively publishing scientists agree that humans are causing global warming and climate change. The denial of 3 percent of scientists is not persuasive. Facts are not hard to find.

I support boys playing on girls teams for one simple reason — my liberal feminist pro-choice Democrat cousin that drags her daughter to rallies and protests will freak out the day her daughter has to share a locker room with a boy.

The entertainment is not supported by the taxpayer. The race tracks are subsidized by the taxpayers. They don’t need to shut down to be profitable, just adjust their payroll to be in the black and not depend on taxes to keep them afloat. Fix the roads!

Loud exhausts on these new Mustangs are not flattering to an otherwise good-looking sports car. They actually cheapen them. They remind me of those that have to wear a big belt buckle.

Note to Putnam county. Nobody is taking your guns. And, people are shooting each other in America because they have guns.

Congratulations to the folks who were instrumental in building the great sports complex in our area. Top notch and first class. Question — why have all the scoreboards and never have them operational?

I agree with Chuck Landon, we don’t need four sports classifications. Leave them at three and regarding football, only allow eight teams for the playoffs. That increases competitive games and also shortens the season for the students.
