Check to see how well you did.</span></p> Editorial: Risk from aging gas pipes requires more attention The Herald-Dispatch 2014-09-29T00:00:00-04:00 <p> A report appearing in USA Today last week cast a spotlight on an infrastructure problem that poses a danger to people across the country, including our region.</p> Voice of the People The Herald-Dispatch 2014-09-29T00:00:00-04:00 <p>I have been watching politics for a long time and am very interested in the race between Jennifer Garrison and Bill Johnson for U.S. representative from the 6th District of Ohio. It is amazing to me that Mr. Johnson calls himself a leader when he has accomplished so little in the four years he has been in Washington. While he has said that he is satisfied with the work that Congress is doing, I can't agree. This has been the worst do-nothing Congress ever -- and he is satisfied! </p> Editorial: Cargo center in Prichard holds great promise The Herald-Dispatch 2014-09-28T00:00:00-04:00 <p>At present, it looks more like a landing strip. </p> Tom Miller: State's high court steps into candidate dispute The Herald-Dispatch 2014-09-28T00:00:00-04:00 <p>The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals will wade into the dispute this week about an effort by the State Election Commission to prevent the Kanawha County Republican Executive Committee and the state Republican Party from replacing Delegate Suzette Raines, R-Kanawha, on the November general election ballot with Marie Spouse-David. </p> Voice of the People The Herald-Dispatch 2014-09-28T00:00:00-04:00 <p>Previously, in this column, I pointed out that the federal Department of Education had unilaterally appointed a task force of college administrators and summarily directed them to come up with recommendations for preventing and responding to rape on college campuses. This was followed by the announcement that 55 named colleges and universities were under investigation by federal authorities for the way they handle allegations of sexual abuse on campus. </p> Voice of the people The Herald-Dispatch / 2014 urn:uuid:b16cc152-a197-4a98-b1ed-d6e3c8f9ec33 2014-09-26T06:58:54-04:00 <p> I enjoyed the recent article about Lynn Fruth of Fruth Pharmacy.</p>
