College should return pool money to county

I think it is a crying shame that the college will not return the money illegally given them by the county commission. It’s just plain that the commission should not have given the money to them for renovation of an area for a swimming pool without being sure they were on solid (legal) ground. Obviously the county needs the money to use for the welfare of the Greenbrier County citizens for the current year.

Perhaps the only way to regain the money for the commission is for those who gave the money away — to repay it!

Joe Manchin is an embarrassment

Joe Manchin is a middle-of-the-road politician who seems to think only of himself.

Any good thing he does is ultimately for his benefit. He loves the spotlight. Ever notice how he seems to appear on television whenever possible?  

He quit his job as governor, leaving our state in quite a predicament. I think he is an embarrassment to our state.
