The Page 1 article "Sale threatens Paint Creek," by Rusty Marks (Nov. 18), should serve as an early warning that another out-of-state company represented by Craig Kaderavek and no doubt guided by preconceived notions regarding West Virginians has arrived, and that they are flexing their muscles to see what they can get away with.
For all practical purposes, about 100,000 acres of our state has fallen into a black hole controlled by an out-of-state company. Will any of these acres be available for sale to the private sector for housing or economic development? Will permits be issued to our citizens for recreational purposes and at what cost? Unless our citizens act, only the elite few will benefit and the rest of us will be treated with contempt.
The Legislature will be in session soon. It is past time for a committee in the Senate and the House of Delegates to be working on legislation suggested by this situation. The people should use those no-trespassing signs mentioned in the article to their advantage. They should point them out to their neighbors and ask them to call their legislative representative.
GOP, tea party ready to buy Jay's seat
Fundraising lead? The Oct. 25 story that Rep. Shelley Capito's fundraising has far surpassed that of candidate Natalie Tennant could very well be a very slanted view of what the whole truth is.
Capito said "the fact that thousands of West Virginians have donated both their money and time to this campaign is truly humbling." Did this money really come from West Virginians or did it really come from outside interests, just like it did for Patrick Morrisey?
We, the people of West Virginia, need to know just where all this money is coming from, now, not six months after the election. Don't let the money make you think she is the best candidate. The Republican Party and the tea party are dead set to spend any amount of money to get Rockefeller's seat in the Senate. If money has ever bought an election, this will be the one.
