West Virginia has one of the most unhealthy populations in the United States, and the state's relatively high smoking rate plays no small role in that.
Williams should rethink city's needs
The mayor of Huntington seems to be in a quandary over how to provide the needed equipment to clean the winter streets. How about not paying a spokesman over $50,000 plus benefits to do what the mayor should be doing himself and quite often does?
When I was small, I spent seven or eight summers in Wisconsin's North Woods, amid tall pines and shimmering lakes, as my father was field athletic director of Camp Eagle Crest on Found Lake. I loved the travel between our urban home on Chicago's northwest side and the clapboard cabin the camp assigned to our family.

Community leaders come in many forms.
We have official leaders - the elected office holders, CEOs of area businesses, the heads of large local institutions, the pastors of churches and leaders of civic organizations.

And some make a difference as "connectors" who bring people together to find their common ground and help move the community forward.

Purchase a misuse of taxpayer money
There is no way such a small lot, the small store site plus small parking lot and not really in the business center and on a street where many businesses have either closed or moved to 3rd Avenue, is worth $765,000. The purchase of the 4th Avenue property by Marshall University was made with state money, not Marshall's, so apparently the price was "right" as well as unimportant. That the lot will be used as a parking lot in the foreseeable future and does not adjoin Marshall property was also apparently unimportant.
