Romney says he's not concerned about the poor because they have a safety net. He says he is concerned about the middle class. What he doesn't understand is that many who were in the middle class are now part of the poor.
Problem-solving using positive conflict resolution is stressed to the students in Kanawha County schools. It is sad that the adults involved in the conflict regarding the addition of the name Mary Snow to the name West Side Elementary are modeling for the students the negative aspect of the practice of conflict resolution.
The boy in Hurricane used headphones to block out comments made by others. By listening to music he could escape into his own world without bullies. Yes, some of his classmates drove him into the situation that took his life.
I'd love to see Clint Eastwood give the keynote address at the next Democratic Convention. "It's halftime, America. Hear our engines roar."
A group of us in Putnam County have really been concerned over who was watching the bond money. We knew the raises were going to start. Look out. This is just the tip of the iceberg. They need to be investigated.
