Do any kids attending Shoals Elementary School ride the bus? In the mornings the line of cars is backed 10 deep on Pennsylvania Avenue with parents dropping kids off. Afternoons are worse because they are backed 20 deep -- each way -- and traffic is at a standstill. Why are the police allowing this road to become a parking lot every day? I can't get in to my home in the afternoons.
Apparently the U.S. isn't satisfied with supporting al-Qaeda in Syria. Now we're supporting Nazis in Ukraine. We never stop meddling.
I am a senior citizen living in West Virginia and benefiting from the Affordable Care Act. When election time comes, I will vote against every politician who opposes it and continues to oppose it. It is that simple!
Yes, the water crisis has affected my visiting the Kanawha Valley. I may come for a show at the Clay Center or Civic Center, but will not drink the water, stay in a motel that uses the water or eat in a restaurant that might use the water. In other words, I eat and drink and vacation outside the affected water area.
I agree with those who have expressed concern or anger with trucks on our highways. The vast number of today's truckers are neither courteous nor good drivers. I once tried to emulate the skill of a truck driver. Now I try to avoid them at all costs.
After listening to Kercheval I inadvertently heard the start of Rush. Rush began ranting about a woman reporter at the Olympics whom he derisively referred to her as an "info babe." Rush's misogyny is so blatant there is no other group so frightfully blind as his female fans.
Not every truck accident is caused by the truck speeding. Somebody else can do something stupid causing others to hit brakes hard and lose control. A truck gets involved in that and car that caused it moves on.
To those who are stirred to action against future water pollution, contact the U.S. senators and congressmen from the states who are and will eventually be affected by the Kanawha's flow stream and see if they can get nonpartisan laws through congress, as the coal and chemical industry money won't allow the West Virginia legislature to do anything meaningful.The $1000 across-the-board raise for teachers is fine. What about state employees and state retirees? State early retirees have had two small raises in over 25 years.
