To the caller complaining about their city water tasting like sewer, you wouldn't happen to live in Pratt would you? We have the same problem here.
Hey buddy, if you lived in South Charleston, down by Oakes Field, and had to put up with the crap that all the residents have to put up with down here, you would understand why we have to put cones out to reserve parking spaces in front of our houses so we have a place as residents . . . for our vehicles. So next time, leave the cones alone.
To the reader who put in that Rusty Casto was the best mayor Nitro has ever had and will go down in history that way: That's true, the new mayor, Dave Casebolt, is never out milling with his constituents, with the crowd. What's he afraid of?
Thank you, so very much, for the beautiful pictures in the paper. Lots of older folks, like myself, are not able to get out to see this beauty. Thank you for caring about us. Thank you to those who take it and for you to print it.
One candidate says coal kills people one day, but he loves coal another day, and leads the party that wants to cut black lung benefits, and force miners to pose for his ads. The other is enforcing MSHA rules to save miners lives. But the UMWA is sitting out the election!
Surely, clueless Republican attacks on social justice can't dumbfound us anymore. Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri speaks of "legitimate rape" and Arkansas Rep. Jon Hubbard calls slavery "a blessing in disguise." Romney's statements regarding "the 47 percent" are no different.
Those of you blaming Obama and the EPA for the downturn in the coal industry refuse to believe the truth: Coal jobs were at an all-time high during the Obama administration and more mining permits were issued. Coal executives don't want you to know the truth: decreased demand for coal because of increased use of natural gas and a milder winter.
The Sunnyside riots, after the game, were a disgusting act of vandalism. They should have a mass arrest of everyone in the streets and all should be arrested and process that day in magistrate court. Everyone found guilty receives 30 days in jail and, if they attend a state institution of higher learning, they should be expelled.
Does the state get bids for hotel conference space? $150 per attendee? When shopping for a hotel, I look for free Wi-Fi.
