— — On a story about three people being shot at a Bluefield playground:

• So sad when things like this happen. No place is safe anymore. Criminals are everywhere and use all kinds of weapons to defend their self instead of learning how to talk to each other as human beings. Disgusting. Hope the victims will be OK and get education to deal with life instead of verbal conflicting and this shooter realizes that his weapon of choice in using a gun only makes him a criminal committing a crime. — Cindy C.

• What kind of worthless pig shoots people at a playground? — Derek Z.

• As I was reading this today I thought of us holding our Bible study there on Sunday morning and then the master’s grill. I realized this is what we are called to do. Reach out into the surrounding community and tell others of God’s saving grace through His Son Jesus. — Susan B.

On a story about the West Virginia University Mountaineers playing the Virginia Tech Hokies in 2021 and 2022:

• I’ll be too old to go — Charlene L.

On a question asking if you have ever visited the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank:

• Took the trip several years ago .... very interesting. Enjoyed it very much — Betty H.

• It would be cool to see more people take an interest in astronomy — Derek Z.

• Yes. Loved it — Bev O.

On a story about an investigation at the Mercer County Fire Board, and East River Volunteer Fire Chief Nelson Short mooning members of the Bluefield Daily Telegraph staff at the courthouse.

• He mooned them? At the courthouse? A grown man mooned them? — Donna M.

• This is uncalled for in the courthouse or anywhere else — Charles B.

• There are seven volunteer members of the fire board, but only five are named? And, I guess Mr. Short will be getting a remedial course from the board on how to conduct himself in public. Was it a full moon or just a half moon? So many questions — Ted L.

• OK. It says he was helping them load boxes. Well if you are helping them load boxes how can you moon someone? — April R.
