Eric Eyre and the people at Knollwood Drive are real jerks. Seems to me that a low-income housing project for the elderly and disabled is a good thing. But they seem to want to cause headaches for Mr. Pauley because they are worried about wheelchairs on Knollwood Drive.
Hoppy Kercheval quoted Cecil Roberts that "Osama bin Laden was killed with a single shot and the EPA killed coal without firing a shot." Statistics do not support this statement. In 1950, total national coal production was 560 million short tons. In 2003, when G.W. Bush was president, it was 1.07 Billion short tons. In 2010 under President Obama national production was 1.05 Billion short tons. A decrease of 0.02 Billion tons ... does not make the death of the coal industry. It is noteworthy that the UMWA-member-mined share is 16 percent. In the 1970s before Roberts and Trumka killed the UMWA without firing a shot the UMWA share of total production was 56 percent.
I am confused. When G.W. Bush railed against the activist Supreme Court, Fox News and all right-wing media cheered him. Now that President Obama did the same, the same pundits are chastising him. Is there a double standard?
I just read the article on the front page of April 10 paper about Carol Fouty. I live in Greenbrier County, and I was in Charleston at one time and she helped a friend and me. She is the most honest, good person that I have ever met. I just don't understand this.
Joe Manchin is a better senator than he was a governor. Besides, as a senator he won't be able to appoint all his family members to serve on government committees.
To the person [who] stole the battery cables at Willow Tree in Hurricane, please bring them back. They belong to a good person that doesn't live there that helps people all the time. We know who you are. You were seen taking them. Please.
Anyone running for political office is breaking the law by putting their signs on state property. Don't vote for them. They're already illegal.
WCHS Channel 8's Jim Barach, billed as the area's first certified broadcast weather prognosticator, never really forecasts anything for sure. He uses terms like possibly, maybe, might be looking at, could occur, and a chance of in his reports. The only thing he knows for sure is the temperature, but he is entertaining.
What makes me happy is Sean Hannity is going to have to live four more years of President Obama. That makes my day.
To the person who was looking for someone to repair a clock, a wall clock, call Dale Fines on Capitol Street.
It does not surprise me one single bit that Kanawha County Schools' cooks are being difficult. What a joke.
To the person who said that every bill in the Senate requires 60 votes doesn't know what they're talking about because there are plenty of votes that go to the Senate that require only 51, the majority.
I've been looking for a little boy who is collecting shoes to give to people, all types of shoes, and if anyone knows who this little boy is if he would call the voiceline number and maybe they can give him my name and my phone number. I would like to reach this little boy. I have lots of shoes.
I would like to know why The Charleston Gazette put the article on the soldier who died saving the Afghan boy of April 3 ... on page 9A? It should have been on the front page. We need the positive of our military and what they're doing, and I feel The Charleston Gazette do a disservice.
