Hey, it’s front page favorite week at the Wheeling Intelligencer
Capito PR today, Capehart PR yesterday: This is what passes for news?
With accompanying picture, today’s Shelley Moore Capito article covers half of the front page. There is no news in the article and the article is filled with bland statements such as:

Capito indicated she is happy with the Republican party’s platform at this point in time, and she hopes that it continues going forward.

A look at the connections between Robin Capehart, Jim Justice and Bill Cole
The paths of three West Virginia Republicans, Robin Capehart, Jim Justice and Bill Cole, continue to intersect. With recent developments, I thought it might be worth noting where they overlap. Here's an annotated list of important events:

Reading the Wheeling News-Register's story about Bluefield’s engineering program
Mostly for selfish reasons, I have tried to stay away from writing about the Bluefield State College proposal to bring engineering courses to the former OVMC medical facility in Wheeling. Writing about that proposal, despite its simple appearance, takes in a lot of topics and territory and I figured that a post on the subject would be hard to . . .
Updates on Myer/racism and Capehart
Away for a few days to a warmer climate (yes, it was nice). I’ve done some quick catching-up on recent topics. (The Republican education bill will have to wait for more developments.)

“School Could Be Out Indefinitely”
With pictures of Ryan Ferns and Robin Capehart
The accompanying pictures explain a lot
This morning’s top-of-the-front-page story in the Wheeling News-Register is, of course, the West Virginia teachers strike which looks like it may continue. Under the headline are two pictures which probably say more to answer the “why” of the school strike than the 700 words that follow.. . .

Can’t get enough of that dated Koch propaganda
I’ve spent part of the last two Sundays checking the publication dates of Sunday News-Register opinion columns to see how badly out-of-date they were. (Most of the columns were at least a week old – I wrote about them here and here.) No sense documenting the obvious, I thought, and so I . . .
