This comment is in regards to the story concerning the removal of the Ten Commandments from Giles Co. Shame on you Sarah McNair. I am proud to say that I am a Christian. As we all know-the end of time is now here. As I write on all of my mail--IN GOD WE TRUST. Sarah you should trust in Him too.
Re: The story on changing the opening of Roanoke City Schools. In Virginia schools must be open 180 days. Roanoke is not asking to be open longer. They just want the flexability to start before Labor Day. Your story was confusing, especially when one man expressed concerns about a longer year. You can do a better job.
I'm sorry to say but WDBJ sports needs some serious improvements. Watching today 2/22/2011 at 6:00 PM. The Seth Greenberg and VT practice was of valuable airtime! I am sorry that the sports team cannot with anything better ie NHL,NBA,Soccer,HS Sports, anything. I am very disappointed in some very talented sportscasters!
I'm not sure reporting that a plain clothes police officer will attend City Council meetings is consistent with a mission to "tighten security." If the officer is in plain clothes, it seems that his identity and presence should be protected to allow him to effectively intervene if needed. Anyone who comes to council meetings with a plan for violence is now aware that that the named and photographed officer must be distracted or otherwise dealt with before following through with the act. What's the point of ID'ing an undercover police officer on the evening news?
We live in a confusing society. For example we take down the Ten Commandments in Giles. Our representatives vote to left the ban on alcohol advertisements on outdoor billboards. Which one would affect our young people in a positive way? It makes be think of the Bible verse that says some strain at a gnat and swallow a camel! By the way why don't the people filing the lawsuit to have the commandments taken down have the courage to give their names?
i love the show. get great news! but the waether has been off. one day you said that it would get into the 40 and it only got into the low 30. I now that God has the final say. but just saying. Thanks for the great show. I'm not mad i still watch in every morning. :) Have a wonderful day. And God bless.
I heard your report on the closing of Direct Buy in Roanoke. As a former employee of Direct Buy of Little Rock, Arkansas and a member, I am disappointed that this location has closed. Contrary to some of your other viewer's opinions, the membership is well worth the investment due to the huge savings. In Little Rock we had numerous members building homes or remodeling and found the memberships saved them thousands of dollars. I personally saved $24,000 on our kitchen remodel alone. I hope that Direct Buy will reopen in Roanoke in the future. We did receive a notification from Direct Buy that the center was closing with details on how to still place orders.
There needs to be more said to encourage flu vaccines. The young and healthy are dying from H1N1. My husband was healthy and 27 yrs old and died in RMH on Jan. 14 of H1N1 and many more are getting that sick. He didn't think he needed the shot because he was super healthy and strong.
I applaud the effort by Roanoke County to jump start the effort to upgrade the performance of existing homes and businesses. But it is misleading to state that a typical audit would be valued at $150 and only take 2 hours to accomplish. That TAP can offer this (partly because it is subsidized through a grant) is one thing, but it is a disservice to the evolving building performance industry, mostly small businesses, to understate costs or time required. True building performance auditing is a professional service that runs, on average across the country, from 2 to 5 times what's been stated - and that's still a bargain for the amount of time and knowhow involved. But it is great to see that building performance is a newsworthy topic!
