If anyone causes the death of a child either by intent or neglect; they should get a life sentence with no possibility of ever getting out.

By all means students who take learning seriously should get more opportunities than do students who just try to get by. I went to school with kids who studied hard and those who just wanted to play. The ones who studied hard made something of themselves and the ones who played work at non-skilled jobs, if they work at all. You reap what you sow.

Two things are going down that should make Americans happy. 1. The unemployment rate. 2. CNN ratings.

Residents of Jackson County, what did the citizens of the State of West Virginia do to you that you would vote into office Mitch Carmichael? He makes Barney Fife look good.

Wouldn’t it be nice this summer to see our friendly city police officers all over the state once again dressed in light blue short-sleeved shirts? Being dressed in long-sleeved black uniforms must be uncomfortably hot and makes our police forces look like ISIS fighters.

Poca Elementary School had a wonderful graduation on May 22 for the kindergarten class. The kids were great and the teachers worked hard. Thanks to the teachers Poca is the best!
