Did you ever notice how many of today's problems never happened until they stopped putting toys in cereal boxes?
To the [reader] who stated: "If that gas pipeline runs under the interstate, they built the road over it." Reports state the gas line was put in during the 1990s. As well as I can remember, I-77 was constructed in the late '70s or early '80s. And the gas line does in fact run under the interstate and a gas line also runs under the Crossings Mail at Elkview. . . . Welcome to the real world.
More guns, more guns . . . that seems to be the NRA and the Republicans' answer to problems in our society with massacres using firearms. It's time for this country to engage the NRA and Republicans to help with real solutions, not repetitious rhetoric.
The only way I see the great Obama to ever cut spending is for us to go over the financial cliff. So if it makes him cut spending and gets even some of these deadbeats off of the working people's backs, then I say here we go! I'm ready to go off the cliff!
How many union workers does it take to dig a ditch? One to bring the shovel. One to push the shovel into the soil. One to lift the shovel out of the soil. One to dump the shovel. And four to hold the shovel while the other four take a break.

This terrible tragedy in Connecticut has not changed my views on gun ownership one bit. I have no problems with regulation or restrictions. I have no problem with registering my guns, I have no problem with background checks or waiting periods, or even having to have a license for certain types of weapons. But I would never support nor abide by an all-out ban.
The second paragraph of the Union Mission story started out with a dangling what?
Anybody that lives in St. Albans knows they light the cemetery on the first Saturday in December. It's been that way for years.
If Eric Nelson gave to charity a half of what he spent to buy the election, this community would be a far better place.
It seems so despicable for politicians to introduce anti-gun legislation while the rest of the country is in mourning. I may be forced to join the NRA.
