Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

About God & Governance

After wondering and worrying about the issues and those who seek our election validation and votes in 2018, especially after my previous Facebook page posts about good governance, a prayerful poem by Meade McGuire came into my thoughts:

"Father, where shall I work today?"

And my love flowed warm and free.

Then He pointed out a tiny spot

And said, "Tend that for me".

I answered quickly, "Oh no; not that!

Why, no one would ever see,

No matter how well my work was done;

Not that little place for me."

And the word He spake, it was not stern;

He answered me tenderly:

"Ah, little one, search that heart of thine.

Art thou working for them or for me?

Nazareth was a little place,

And so was Galilee."

And so, this 2018 election season, as we grapple with the issues and the candidates, let us do so prayerfully, that Providence may chart our choices.

And may God bless you all real good!

"Footloose"?

A previous editorial in our local "The Journal" daily newspaper, which lamented "loose spending" by West Virginia legislators and inaccurate guesstimates regarding the unintended consequences of new laws, was and is right on target.

This is a major problem, and I pledge to continue to press forward to demand independent cost analyses of all legislative proposals.

It's only right, and Mountaineers deserve better.

After all, "Footloose" should only be a movie, and not a means to defraud West Virginia citizens.
