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!

At present, it looks more like a landing strip.

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.

Critics should show some respect for the president

As any reader should be, I'm disturbed by editorial writers who take every opportunity to announce their "Christianity," who use Bible quotes to justify their "holier-than-thou" attitudes. Occasionally, they find themselves adrift in a wash of hypocritical rhetoric.

Scout reserve amendment would boost state

West Virginia took great pride as the Boys Scouts of America unveiled its world-class outdoor adventure facility near the New River Gorge in 2013.

Evan Jenkins delivered a speech to approximately 300 highly conservative business people at the Greenbrier on Aug. 28. Mr. Jenkins, a skilled melodramatic politician, capitalized upon Congressman Rahall's necessary absence to hurl innuendoes concerning Nick Rahall. West Virginia's plight, poverty, health care and the environment were topics of Mr. Jenkins' concern.

Mark Caserta: President should not ignore military advisers

President Obama has certainly given the world plenty of reason to question his ability to address the war on terror.
