In regard to the comics and puzzles in the newspaper, we are puzzled as to why would you replace good comics with anything like "WuMo," "Pearls Before Swine" and "Tundra." "The Flying McCoys" need to work on their captions -- they don't do justice to their illustrations.
They are doing all this water testing after the spill in the Elk River. What is the "baseline" -- the testing results of the water in the Elk and the water lines before the discovery of the chemical leak?
If the liberals would tune in to the unbiased reporting of Fox News, they could learn some things. The problem is that the liberal Democrats are too loyal to their party, and nothing else matters.
Are others having Waste Management trash pickup 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?
It's a shame the water company won't be honest and tell the truth, unless the governor is trying help cover his and their butts.
A recent Venter said President Obama had violated the Constitution by his appointment while the Senate was not in session (or was in session). That matter has yet to be decided by the Supreme Court. And as for invading Libya without congressional approval, I remind everyone that every conflict we have been in since World War II has been against the Constitution, which specifically gives the power to declare a state of war to the Congress, and Congress has not declared a state of war since World War II.
To the Venters that asked what it will be like when coal is gone and can we count on solar and wind: Look north. The Canadian province of Ontario, that used to buy their coal from West Virginia, realized in 2005 that coal is more expensive when you add the environmental and health-related costs, so by 2013, the province shut down all their coal-fired plants, expanded their renewable energy systems and brag that they are now "coal-free." Oh yes, and they have lowered their utility rates.
West Virginia doesn't have a legislature -- they have a law-making machine. As of Feb. 1, 1,472 bills had been introduced: 1,009 in the House and 463 in the Senate. I wonder how many of these bills are necessary and how many are taking care of their buddies.
