For A Time Such As This

It is neither the scope nor intent of this writing to get involved with in-depth scientific explanations of the body. The Scriptures give a foundation that inspires our appreciation of the exquisite, unique, and delicate nature of the body, revealing God’s marvelous works toward us. However, a few aspects of the wonders of our unique design are relevant.

EPA going beyond constitutional authorityDear Editor:Article I Section 1 of the Constitution says the following:All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress of the United States, which shall consist of a senate and House of Representatives. Nowhere does it say that an employee of the Federal Government can write a law. The problem with the Environmental Protection Agency is that they are going beyond their constitutional...

If we’d just send Shelley Moore Capito to Washington, the coal trucks would start rolling again.Oh … wait … we’ve already sent her to Congress and … well, coal is in big trouble.The lunacy of political campaigns would sometimes cause a sane person to crumble. Capito’s ads and campaign pronouncements make it appear her election to the U.S. Senate seat being given up by Jay Rockefeller would save West Virginia coal. I would sugg...

Everybody in Logan County is about to be indicted.I’m operating on the premise that nobody can make it through an entire day without somehow breaking a law or statute. Most will let their vehicle drift left of center. Others will jaywalk, tell a little white lie or worse. This indictment theory seems to be the logic used by those who despise some Logan County officials. Every day, these cynics expect a dozen indictments to be handed down.Those who have been claimin...

A political columnist’s dream come true. That’s Mingo County.Where do we begin? A fight in the County Clerk’s office? A mad scramble to field a candidate, any candidate, to run for county commissioner? Law enforcement officials who, after the fight broke out, don’t seem to know where the courthouse is?

The Rahall Report

The notion that education should be available to all is a classically American ideal — one that George Washington espoused in his famous farewell address.Our Founding Fathers recognized education not just as an avenue to vocations for our citizens but also as a practical investment in ensuring the strength and longevity of the newly formed government and its guarantee of liberty.As Thomas Jefferson once put it in speaking to James Madison, “Above all things I...

It could, after all, have been worse.For example, Federal District Court Judge Thomas Johnston could have ordered disgraced former Mingo County Circuit Court Judge Michael Thornsbury to spend the rest of his life in Hamlin.But the judge did not do that. Instead, he sentenced Thornsbury to 50 months in a federal facility. One of the locations the ex-judge apparently wanted considered was a minimum-security “camp” in Pensacola, Florida. Early this week, it seem...
