Dec 19 p Forgot to mention something
in the morning post
Dec 19 p As game changers, there's
one biggy. Gas prices. Adding unemployment extensions, lowering taxes on
the wealthy, none of that boosts the economy like gas prices dropping by
a dollar or more in just a few weeks. Instead of families coughing up $100
or more weekly to get to work or the store, that dollar per gallon savings
is a huge pay increase.
Dec 19 p Down in Cross Lanes, the Go
Mart price was $2.49/gallon on the 17th. Not quite that good here but none
the less, we're seeing our paychecks stretch much further.
Dec 19 p The lower barrel price
is having another effect. A big chunk of Russia's GNP is from the sale
of oil and gas. After two months of prices below $60 per barrel, Russia
Dec 19 p Those same low prices is also
slowing down the deep oil drilling business and fracking.

Dec 12 a Each county in the state has
a civil service commission that works behind the scenes in securing qualified
Black Shirts. Stuff like public notices, testing, and additionally, any
grievances that the pubblic or employee may hold. One Commissioner is appointed

Dec 12 a At issue is the appointment
by the Deputy's Assoc. to the Civil Service Board. Linky said he would
never approve that choice. When they looked at Queen Smiley, she at first

Dec 12 a One problem. If you read State
Code 7-14-3, the County Commission has NO say in who the Bar Assoc.

Circuit Court to remove a sitting member.

Dec 11 a Commissioner Bob Weaver has
a darn good historical expose from 10 years ago on Murder Mountain. Oh
how the newspaper business longs for those days of old.
Here's the hurherald link.
Dec 11a While exploring the horrible
badge tactics of recent months, the Charleston Gazette's Monday Dec 8th
editorial included these snippets on local out of control Badge overkill:
....Last year, a heavily armed State Police SWAT team and federal drug
agents went at daybreak to the Clay County mobile home of a disabled man
suspected of trading pain pills for stolen goods.
His family said a fusillade of
bullets apparently was fired through his front door before he opened it
and the door evidently was pried open afterward. The body of Richard Dale
Kohler, 65, was so riddled by wounds that he had a closed-casket funeral.
The police report says officers
were forced to break open the door, and Kohler raised a rifle at them,
so they fired in self-defense. But relatives say the man hobbled on a cane,
which might have been mistaken for a weapon.
How could he be holding a cane
in one hand and raising a rifle with the other? his daughter told a Gazette
reporter. Dad wasn't that strong, he was disabled.
In the past, she said, her father
had welcomed officers into his trailer. He never was known to possess a
gun, she said.
Later, troopers went to a Clay
County magistrate and obtained a search warrant that was backdated before
the shooting occurred.
Clay County prosecutor Jim Samples
said this week that the state-level warrant was for stolen property a
different topic not covered by the federal-level drug warrant that launched
Dec 11a On that part about a "backdated
Dec 11 a After the murder, we
asked Magistrate Mike King about that backdated warrant.
Dec 11 a From our memory: the aging
Kohler was murdered around 6am. Magistrate King was telephoned around 6:30
that same morning. At 7am King went to the Courthouse and issued the warrant.
According to King, there was no mention that someone had been killed or
that the SWAT assault was already in progress.
Dec 11 a Raise your hand if you agree:
the Ninja Turtle clad Green Shirts were actually at the wrong Maysel trailer.
Instead of the Kohler trailer, they meant to be at the near by Beasley
trailer. Beasley is also a senior citizen. Why do we think that? Just a
short time latter, Beasley was arrested for selling drugs.

Dec 8 a Full scoop over at www.wyap.com
Dec 8 a The norm is for WesTest scores
to be made public in August of each year. The idea is, see where
the problems are and then make changes in the program before the kids come
back to school.
Dec 8 a In 2014, teachers were provided
the WestTest scores while the public was not. When asked, the scores have
to be checked over and over to make sure they're accurate.

Dec 8 a after six months of massaging,
here's a sample of the best they could present after spending millions
on education in West Virginia
Dec 8 a Clay Elem is considered a premier
school. Parents often drive their wittle darlins to Clay Elem for the best
education.. At that center of learning, extra services are provided. An
example of their scores: 60% of the students are not on grade level in
math; a full 50% fall below grade level in reading; in science 63%
of the rug rats are below grade level in science; and 61% are not up to
par in social studies
Dec 8 a At Clay Middle School 55% of
the students are not at grade level in science
Dec 8 a Over in high school land, after
years in the public school system, 52% of the pupils are not at grade level

float: the test takers deliberately provided bogus answers. For those purveyors,
