People have a short memory span. Sen. Manchin resigned as governor after winning a special election to take Sen. Byrd’s vacancy.

The Obituaries page without color pictures looks hollow. Charge a little more and bring back color pictures.

AG Barr stated he hasn’t read the entire Mueller Report. How long does he need? He’s had more than six weeks. Less than 450 pages. Maybe he is like his legal client, he just doesn’t like to read.

On April 30, two older women in a light colored Buick, were dumping kittens in the alleys of Kanawha City. They were dumped out of cages. I may not know your names, but I’m sure God does.

I hear that the latest excuse for not helping the ‘16 flood victims is that FEMA requires environmental assessments. This requirement is neither a secret nor new. And it is not particularly complex. These assessments could have been done more than 10 years ago. There’s even suggested language for parts of them if you bother to look.

First time in 10 years we have an Attorney General do his job and enforces the laws as they’re written versus how a political party told him to enforce them. Democrats can’t stand it.

Yes, roundabouts work in certain areas and situations. Just how big and wide will this roundabout be? Jefferson Road has a lot of truck traffic. Many from out of area. You’re asking for accidents to happen.

We are tearing up the Earth to make more stuff we don’t need, which pollutes the Earth even more. Humans are a sorry excuse for the dominant species of a planet.

I couldn’t understand why Mueller didn’t write an Executive Summary of his report. Now we know that he did write one, and that it is being hidden from both Congress and the public. Do you think the administration would hide it if the report concluded in complete exoneration?
