'Republican nutcases' right on the mark
I have to say Perry Mann has completely articulated the angst that I have felt for years at the state of the "white man's party" ("Republican Party full of nutcases," Nov. 4). His article rings truer than the Liberty Bell itself. I wish it could be printed and dropped in leaflets all over the country!
Thanks to him so much for writing that. He has inspired me to keep trying to get others to see the raw truth and to allow parity for all men in this great nation. He makes me proud to be a (displaced) native West Virginian!
W.Va. should be leading in energy efficiency
West Virginia is a leader in energy production, but there are few policies in place for wise use of the energy we create.
Recently, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy released their Energy Efficiency Scorecard, where West Virginia dropped from 46th place in 2011 to 49th place in 2012. West Virginians deserve better. Not only should our state be a leader in energy production, but we should also be a leader in energy efficiency.
The ACEEE report, found at aceee.org, highlights key strategies for states aiming to improve energy efficiency. Most of the top-ranked states have an adequately funded Energy Efficiency Resource Standard, which sets energy savings targets for utility companies.
