If all the people that complain about climate change would just move off the grid and not own vehicles and live without their luxuries and without electricity and natural gas, our climate would improve.

With safety a high priority in sports parks, why doesn’t the city of Charleston and West Virginia Power do more by adding more safety netting? Add more netting above existing nets to protect fans on the concourse, concessions stands and persons in wheelchairs sitting just above the netting.

Why are we hiding the Shawnee Sports complex? When you drive on I-64 between Institute and Dunbar and look, you can not see it. Need to trim the trees beside the interstate and front of the park itself so you can see the sports complex. If we are so proud of it, let everyone see it! Let residents and anyone driving through see what we have here in the valley.

The article in Sunday’s paper by Amelia Ferrell Knisely gets to the heart of the issue. Our public education system is not broken.

Two miles. We could pave two miles of two-lane road with $2 million.
