Don't forget to tip your server

Recently, due to lack of jobs in our area, I had to take on a part-time job. Although I am not a server, I have come to see that some of these people really need your help.

An average server makes $2.15-2.25 per hour. They depend on YOUR tips to feed their family, pay their bills. Being a server is not an easy job. I watch them, and they work hard, for whatever their reason for being a server.

So when you go out to eat and enjoy your food, family and friends, please remember your server. Times are hard all the way around, and they (most of them) need your/our help. Tips feed them and their children. Thank you.

WVU chant is urban legend

In response to the letter about the alleged "plane crash chant" at the WVU-Marshall football game, I was there and I never heard any such chant!

I understand Marshall fans not wanting to play WVU anymore, but I think it is unhealthy to make baseless accusations. These types of claims have been made since the football series was resumed seven years ago, most often without any proof, just hearsay from someone trying to stir up the "rivalry"?
