Is this really a Wheeling “newspaper”?
Maybe it’s time to switch the quotation marks
Another day and two more irrelevant Ohio editorials for the readers of Ogden’s local West Virginia “newspapers”
The first of today's Wheeling Intelligencer editorials is about juvenile crime in Steubenville and Jefferson County, Ohio. Neither Wheeling nor West Virginia is mentioned in the editorial. (Steubenville is 29.4 miles . . .

Mike Myer knows his audience: Yes, it's another column that scapegoats Obama
Today’s Mike Myer column, "Picking Winners and Losers," is mostly an attack upon the Obama administration’s supposed “war on coal.” Of course, Myer totally ignores the obvious – that market forces, especially cheap natural gas, is the primary cause for coal’s decline.
