It is unlawful to drive at posted speeds when road conditions are dangerous. I see many who know nothing about safety while driving and when there is ice or puddles of water on the roads. It’s a sad thing living with maiming and killing.

I’m afraid some of the Fox propaganda got into the hen house and the easily fooled were affected. Social Security is fine and if rich paid their fair share it would be good. They want control so they pay nothing.

Another draft-dodging president making preparations for war! We need a constitutional amendment that states very simply: “No person can be elected to the office of President of The United States that has not served at least four years in one of the four major branches of the armed forces of the United States of America.”

If the State of West Virginia wants the best education reform possible, it needs to step back and let Debra Sullivan write the specs. She is a gifted genius educator with a proven record of turning out well-educated students.

I don’t like Mark Sadd’s columns and almost never agree with his point of view. I was not moved to comment, however, until I read his attempt at humor. Loved it!

I wish you would put all the yard/estate sales back together, this way is very confusing. I am scanning total of two pages trying to see if I missed some.

Apparently the person who determines the comfort index is a northerner. That person rates a cool, cloudy day as eight and a warm sunny day as three. What gives?

There is one roundabout in Columbus that is part of a heavily traveled four lane highway and it works beautifully. Of course, all traffic circles require patient, courteous, and attentive drivers and also maintaining the proper timing on any traffic lights in other parts of the area so it probably will be a disaster here.

Thank you to the kind gentleman in the red truck who brought water to the senior citizens bus that was broken down at the Goldtown Exit on I-77 on Friday afternoon. Many prayers of thanks were offered for you. You were one of only two people that stopped to help us in the two hours we sat along the road. God bless you.
