I think the people that stand around protesting women’s health care could find something else to keep them busy, like maybe being a foster care parent. That is if they could pass the background check.

How many times do we have to see a crowd of defenseless people die to realize that keeping people defenseless isn’t the answer?

When is the state going to patch the holes on W.Va. 817 through the the town of Winfield, the Putnam County seat.

Pool memberships used to be good for three months. Now it’s little more than two. It’s no longer worth the expense. Summer jobs don’t last long enough to really earn anything. Hard to schedule a summer vacation with kids now. Thank you, teachers. Hope you enjoy your winter and spring breaks.

Who is so demented that they believe that there’s any comparable racist ideology to white supremacy? What utter nonsense.
