Let’s worry about important stuff rather than old guy at courthouse

Still don’t see any evidence that activists are ‘soft’ on natural gas

To the Editor:

I do not know of any advocates or activists for renewable energy who would claim that natural gas is cleaner than coal. That's the point of my letter. It's not cleaner than coal, as activists and renewable energy advocates know unless they've been asleep for five years.

Lifetime emissions of natural gas worse on climate than coal

To the Editor:

Your recent OU pipeline story contained a misleading statement about climate impacts of natural gas. No activist I know considers natural gas clean, as claimed by your reporter.

Just love the off-road trail on Richland Avenue in south A-town

To the Editor:

As a 22-year resident of Athens, I must preface this letter by saying I love this town; I have traveled extensively from coast to coast, and I honestly can't say I'd rather live anywhere else in this country (at least anywhere I could afford to live) but that's by the by.

Area highways should warn slow drivers to keep to the right

To the Editor:

I just have one question for the ODOT officials: Why is there not signs along U.S. Rt. 33 toward Columbus or U.S. Rt. 50 East toward Parkersburg that say: "SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT."
