Meal volunteer deserves recognition
So often in our busy, impersonal world, we fail to properly thank individuals in our community who so freely give their time and resources to help their fellow citizens. One such individual that I and my sister Beverley Kellogg would like to recognize is Polly Horan, who volunteers with Meals on Wheels. She has been a "breath of sunshine" in helping two sisters, who live out of state, obtain life-sustaining nutrition for our ill brother.
In this time of reduced budgets and general cutbacks for all community endeavors, Meals On Wheels has been a "beacon" in holding the line on the price of their daily deliveries. I urge your readers to consider making a donation of their time and/or money to this most worthy community service in the Kanawha Valley, so Polly and her colleagues can continue the life-saving work they do so well!

Tennant would make a good senator
I read Melody Potter's letter about Natalie Tennant and how she would be a puppet for Sen. Reid and the president if she were elected to the Senate instead of Shelley Moore Capito, and that this would be a terrible thing for our state, etc. I beg to disagree. I think Natalie would be a good senator and would work for the best for our state regardless of the circumstances.
Remember, Mrs. Capito voted to shut down the government during the recent turmoil putting thousands of federal workers on furlough just because her leadership said she should do so. Who do you think Mrs. Capito was thinking of then? To accuse Ms. Tennant of being a puppet for Sen. Reid and the president when Mrs. Capito was so openly willing to do what her leadership ordered is hardly fair.
