Wet or dry…time to decide.

...the information.

…the information that was left on my porch this weekend.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you know that West Liberty will be holding an election this Tuesday, January 22 to decide on the sale of alcohol within city limits.  I had thought that maybe I’d not write anything about it.  I know where I stand…I know where others stand…and I know that probably no matter what anyone says at this point, minds and votes are already decided.

Then I started thinking that if I ever want this site to grow and become a reliable source for news and …

This seems like a very neat and very worthwhile project. Hopefully folks will contact Carrie to share their story.  Here is the message from Dr. Coaplen:

Did you survive the Spring 2012 tornado and storms in West Liberty? If you were affected in any way and would like to share you story, I am interested. My name is Carrie, and I teach writing at Morehead State. The project I am beginning to work on involves West Liberty and survivors’ narratives. Specifically, I hope to collect your shared stories, reflections, journal entries, poems, and any writings about that event.

4gfireball

Coming to a town near you...

I just wanted to take a little break from the tornado coverage to share some information about at least one new phone headed to Appalachian Wireless soon, and an approaching announcement about another.

Door-to-Door Alert: Interstate Subscription Services

We were visited at our home yesterday evening by a door-to-door magazine salesman, working for Interstate Subscription Services.  The young man was nice as can be, and he explained that we could purchase a magazine subscription for ourselves or have it sent to a soldier overseas, and in return, he would be rewarded points towards winning a trip to Italy.

I looked over the magazines and asked about the prices on some of them.  The lowest prices were all $40 or more, for multi-year subscriptions, which was a significant savings…IF you ever get your magazines.  Several reports online about this …

This morning on the way to work, I noticed a couple of folks kind of pulled off near 1459.  I slowed down to see what was going on, and there he was…his big head poked up out of the weeds.  Unfortunately, i did not have my camera with me, so I have no pictures.  I did, however, make a sketch of him that I feel is pretty accurate… 🙂

yeah...i think this about captures it.…

US next to revolt?

20110202-101322.jpg

“One cause of the revolts in Tunisia and Egypt is popular outrage over the monopolization of wealth by a small cadre of elites. The grievances of the Middle East’s dispossessed probably seem justified to most Americans, who view the the region as a relic of feudalism and stomping ground for despots. But what about America itself? As has been widely noted over the past few days, income inequality in the United States is actually much worse than in Egypt, Tunisia, or Pakistan. Could the US government feel the push of inequality’s domino effect?”…
