Potholes problem after cold weather

While driving around the city of Huntington over the past week, it feels like I am in a demolition derby with all of the potholes I have to swerve and miss. As the snow has melted and I don’t see any crews out putting the “dry fill” in as the city says, I wonder, can I, when I hit one of the really deep ones and my car pops a tire or bends the rim, stop and take a picture and send the bill for the repairs to the city?

I realize the city is broke or seems to be, but the pothole situation is beyond desperate in Huntington. You’re doing some good things, Mayor Williams, but filling the potholes is not one of them.

Pet owner griefs for loss of dogs

I was at Heartland Nursing Home in a coma and my son talked to the dog catcher, who said he would hold my dogs for me. I finally got home and tried to get in touch with the dog shelter and went down there three different times, and finally was told that they were shipped to Maryland.

The dog shelter lied to me and I grieve more each day.

I love my animals and know they love me.

After they told me they shipped my dogs to Maryland, an employee at the shelter told me that she had all sort of animals, that I should pick out one and she would sell me one for $47. I had a Chihuahua and she is too small to do any harm, and my Dalmatian is a lovable pet.

I miss them so bad. I wish they had gone ahead and pulled the switch and let me go. I hope they’re safe and taken good care of.

They had a good home. I pray for them.
