Are others having Waste Management trash pick up issues? We have gone two to three weeks several times without pickup and it is contributing to litter by animals and terrible odors. Is this breaking a public health sanitation rule? Why are we required to pay for a service we are not getting -- just like the water issue?
If schools require water with no odor, less than 1 ppb MCHM, then all the water produced by WVAW should meet this standard. Flushing with less pure water is not effective. Are there any other water impurities needing tighter standards?
From your editorial, "Republicans have become enemies of the poor ... why, for heaven's sake, do folks like these support the GOP?" Because folks like these know that the war on poverty started under President Johnson and continued since then has failed them. Instead of being lifted out of poverty the war on poverty has sunk them into more poverty.
Some of us didn't curl up and panic during January. We lived life as normal by going to work as usual during the harsh weather and water crisis. We have good reason to be concerned about our vacation schedules.
Gov. Tomblin has had four months to appoint one judge. What has he been doing to keep him so busy that he could not get to it and now others have to cover for that judge?
I'm a Democrat, who resents the extremists (right and left) who portray all Democrats as anti-gun nuts.
Why is the speed limit 55 mph through the Southridge area? Many cars travel at a speed higher than that. If the speed limit were 45 people would still speed but at a lower speed. With all the stop lights and all the traffic 55 is too high.
Blaming the chemical spill on the coal industry makes as much sense as blaming the auto industry when the gas in your lawn mower catches fire.
The goofballs who continually poke fun at global warming would not see the humor if they were cattle farmers in California, but I doubt they have much sympathy for anyone.
Concerning the law that leaving a car running unattended, your remote start will not work unless the car is locked.
Our form of government as crafted by the founding fathers, while not perfect, is the best in history. However, incremental abuses of power by both parties has turned it into a circus. It's our fault while we have a president who dictates law, thus shredding the Constitution.
My opinion of West Virginia American Water is they are as guilty as Freedom Industries. They are supposed to protect the water they receive free from the Elk River.
Really, these older women wearing tights and inappropriate attire really ought to be addressed. It's just terrible to see them dressed like that representing the town.
Illnesses on cruise ships is nothing new. In the 1990s my husband and I became very ill on a cruise. Everyone got ill, including the doctor and nurse. We came back with pneumonia sick for two weeks.
Someone in the Reader's Voice faulted the water company for not shutting the water off as soon as they knew there was a problem. Can you imagine how much worse our problems would have been if we had not been able to flush our toilets?
