The scathing review of The Capitol Steps by Autumn Hopkins seethed with a hostility that was clearly not felt by the large and appreciative crowd of laughing and applauding West Virginians in the Clay Center.
True, Ms. Hopkins is entitled to her opinions and, true, she can choose not to see the troupe in the future; the outrageous (outrageously hilarious for most of us) humor of The Capitol Steps is not for everyone. But I'm willing to bet that the other thousand or so folks in the room that night left there wanting more and headed to the Steps' website to purchase a couple of their CDs or to find them on YouTube, just to be able to have a few more hearty laughs.

Thanks to cyclist for help after fall
One Tuesday afternoon I tripped on a sidewalk on 46th Street and MacCorkle Avenue in Kanawha City and fell onto MacCorkle Avenue. A lady dropped her bike and helped me.
Nobody got out of his car to help. I'm 80 years old and she was like an angel. I thank her so much for her help.

Humane Association needs outside review
The Kanawha Charleston Humane Association Board of Directors has a responsibility to see that the association is run effectively, humanely and stays financially solvent. If these conditions are not met and maintained, the stability of the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association would be affected.
Policies and procedures should be followed and maintained to ensure these objectives.
A review of operations by an outside source would provide the Board of Directors with a total overview of what needs to be done to keep the facility and organization solvent and stable for many years to come. Bio security and infection control have already been addressed by an outside source. This is not "the old" versus "the new," just good business.
