Christians must rebuke immorality

I rarely waste the time and effort to respond to flaming liberal columnists like Milt Hankins, but he stumbled across something last week that I believe is very significant in Christendom and American society in general.

Milt Hankins: Hillary isn't short of accomplishments

A reader challenged me to name one Hillary Clinton accomplishment. I took the dare! I researched her life and career, and I came up with 65 bona fide accomplishments. Lists are so dull; therefore I'm summarizing in this piece some of her important early achievements.

Editorial: Merely patching highway funding doesn't hold up

Another Band-Aid is being placed on the federal program that pays for maintaining the nation's transportation infrastructure, and it won't be sticking around long.

Mark Caserta: Job numbers represent smoke and mirrors

Look around you. Do you see good paying jobs being created? The cruel truth of the matter is that the official unemployment rate cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed, as well as the underemployed. If you give up and stop searching for a job, the U.S. government stops counting you in the work force.

Health problems that cause pain do not vary much from place to place, according to the Center for Disease Control.

Thumbs up: New group makes first investment

A group of angels is at work in the Tri-State, and the result could be a blessing for the region's economy. The Tri-State Angel Investment Group, based in Ashland, Ky., was formed a few months ago with the purpose of injecting money into business ventures that could lead to more jobs.

Diane W. Mufson: W.Va. should open up to ride-sharing services

Blame it on our grown children. My husband and I keep being introduced to innovative technologies and experiences because our younger family members try new things.

Thumbs down: Report outlines state's road conditions

Anyone who drives on rural roads in West Virginia can figure out that they are not in the best of condition. But if there was any doubt, a research group has issued a report reinforcing that notion.

Hankins wrong on law enforcement

Today, May 8, 2015, I read a column in The Herald-Dispatch by frequent contributor Milt Hankins. I do not usually respond to editorials, whether I agree or not. But, I could not let this go without a response. Suffice it to say that Mr. Hankins' comments may very well be the most imbecilic, racist diatribe that I have ever read from a supposedly educated individual.
