Editorial: Perry leaves legacy of leadership, service

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. Others provide community leadership as "catalysts," providing respected perspectives and opinions that influence our decisions. 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.

Milt Hankins: Will we be nicer to GOP president?
