— — A selection of reader comments from our Facebook page this week:

On what attraction you would like to see locally:

• It is crazy how proactive Princeton and Bluefield, Va., is with businesses. Bluefield could utilize the 1st exit off I-77 and have a gold mine. There is nothing from Wytheville, Va., to Princeton, W. Va. A lot of money drives by our town ... even small Bluefield, Va., has a Wal-Mart ... — Robert S.

• Chuck E. Cheese’s would be nice. IHOP. — Robin S.

• Promote and support small local businesses. If a place is known for unique small local businesses that attracts people more money stays in the community. — Dave H.

• Would love to have an Italian Bakery. An Indoor water park would be great! Chuck E. Cheese’s, Target, Ross's , IHOP, Barnes and Nobles, Red Lobster for starters. There is nowhere from Beckley to Bristol. — Lina A.

On getting a tattoo to represent your region or state:

• I have a Power T on my lower back for the Tennessee Vols. — Kari C.

• I have the flying WV on my shoulder. — Carl S.

• I have a Flying WV on my chest, 304 on my forearm, state outline on my back. So  yes, I’d say I would get a tattoo representing my state. — Jeremy B.

• I don’t like them. — Angie C.

• I’m from Tazewell and in 2007, I got a Tazewell Bulldog tattoo on my right forearm. — Christy R.

•  I have a coal miner’s daughter tattoo with the outline of W.Va. on my left shoulder blade in remembrance of my daddy, a W.Va. coal miner. — Sandy L.

• I love my tattoos and plan to get more. One of which will represent W.Va.! — Jess W.
