People are tired of having their property taxes raised and nothing resulting from it. The reason the library is a failure is because people can't afford it anymore. They want to build a fancy showcase library so all the people in South Hills can have a place they can brag about.
It sounds like we need some new board members on the Putnam County Board of Health since they're obviously not concerned with the health of Putnam County but they're more concerned with their political or personal agendas.
To the one who vented about Coach Huggins' clothes he wears to the basketball games, he doesn't wear suits. He wears his other outfits, but he has a good record. They ought to concentrate on his record instead of the clothing he wears.
The data is there to show that educational preschool programs do prepare young children, especially those from disadvantaged homes, to achieve in public schools. Programs such as Head Start are worth their weight in gold.
Jorea Marple should run for governor. I worked under her supervision when she started the first Head Start programs in West Virginia. She knows how to serve the people.

Does anyone at the tax department work? Federal tax returns have been deposited like weeks ago and state return just says "in process." Wow, how slow them people are.
John Kerry recently told a group of German students, "In America, you have a right to be stupid." It should be made clear that Americans are not required to exercise that right.
Teachers, union workers, unemployed, and more upper- and middle-class citizens are becoming dissatisfied with the right wing of the distasteful Democratic Party, or as I call it, the shysters taking over the party to forward an agenda of the GOP.
People on welfare are not freeloaders. Many were upper or middle class before their jobs were taken. I see no joy or benefit in taking away their food and housing. There are no living-wage jobs available.
Would someone at the Gazette please list each position in the state Department of Education, the salary of each, and each position in each of the RESAs and their salaries? Do not mention names, it is not their fault the money is being wasted. I think the average taxpayer would be amazed at the waste of money ... feathering the nest of a few.
The Kanawha County school board president calling public libraries parasitic is the pot calling the kettle black.
Has the state Tax Department issued any refunds yet?
