2 thumbs up for local production of 'Pirates of Penzance'
If you are looking for something wonderful to do this weekend, I would highly recommend you attend the play "The Pirates of Penzance" at the old Huntington High School auditorium. It is a fantastic show superbly done.
The music, acting and costumes are outstanding. With all the remarkable local talent, it makes you proud of our community and Tri-State area. New York might equal it, but could not exceed it and for less than what it would cost to park your car in New York. Bil Neal and everyone having anything to do with Art Resources for the Tri-State are to be congratulated for providing such a fabulous entertainment opportunity.

A fond thank you and farewell to Jay Rockefeller
As I sit here reflecting back on my life, I remember very well all of the 50 years Jay Rockefeller has been in West Virginia. Starting out as a VISTA worker, onto the House of Delegates, Secretary of State, governor and finally U.S. Senator, Jay Rockefeller has always stood up for the working men and women, senior citizens, veterans and the youth of West Virginia.
Simply put, my fellow West Virginians, there will never be another man to replace Jay Rockefeller. As West Virginia celebrates her 150th birthday, we should all remember and appreciate Jay Rockefeller for his life of service to this great state and its people.
Thanks, Jay, for the great ride and the life that you helped me to achieve along the way!
Answers sought on state of bridge
Anybody traveling across the 6th Street bridge is very aware of the missing blacktop in the expansion joints of the bridge. You have no choice but to either risk tearing your car up or slow to a crawl to cross these areas -- I get honked at a lot.
After several phone calls, I was, finally, told the West Virginia Bridge Department handles repairs on the bridge. But, when I called the number for the Bridge Department, nobody answered. Does anybody know of any other department to contact?
I know that the pothole problems persist, but I do not want to have expensive repairs to my vehicle if it can be prevented.
