Who else thinks the Mingo County state road needs to get out of the vehicle everynow and then and start doing some work around here. All they want to do is ride around and let the people and coal companies take care of cleanup with floods and poweroutages happen and I think its a damn shame!!

Do we even have a state road in Gilbert? I didn't even see them clearing any of the roads when all those trees fell. I don't guess they wanted to give up their Holiday vacation like those other workers did. Private citizens out there doing what they should be doing. What a BIG joke the doh is.

we have the worst state road ever...i think they all need to be fired and get some men that will actually get out and do some work not just ride around. last night we came down horsepen mtn. and it was snow covered and the state road was sitting parked on the side of the road watching all the cars go sliding down the mtn. i think they need to be reported.

I went to Gilbert around 11:30 this morning, and the roads were still terrible...But what did I see when I went thru town?? A scraper truck coming out of Little Egypt!!!! Now tell me, if the main road is still terrible, why would they need to be in that place??? They do everything Butt Backward!!!! And to get them to go up in Slabtown??? Well you think that someone asked them to commit murder...Those people get stuck in for days...GOD FORBID THE STATE ROAD CLEAR IT.

I think the government needs to bid out snow removal and all road work to private contractors. Then they would do the job or lose the contract. We pay a fortune to DOH employees and get nothing in return. If it wasnt for the Sunshine we would have icy roads until Summer

The Gilbert crew hardly works, they expect the bunch on the hill at Miller's Creek to do it all. Call and complain to Charleston, they'll light a fire under their asses.

Whos over the state road in this area. Its sounds like and looks like we need to get someone in that position that can actualy get something out of the men besides what they are doing now which is nothing. You know they have all the equipment they need to do the jobs but you never see them getting anything done. Really if it had not been for Massey and RHCD in this area when the flood came and the trees needing cut people would still be in bad shape. Not only them but the general public getting things done.They still have not done anything to get the trees from the side of the road that has already been cut.This is our tax dollars at work GREAT!

Ray Messer, and no...he isn't good at his job. He's the supervisor and he's the one who tells the crew what to do, he just doesn't tell them to do anything unless it's in the Dingess/Breeden/Naugatuck area.

Today I was in Mercer, Wyoming, McDowell and Mingo county. The Gilbert area had less snow than any of the other counties and yet their roads were the worst. I do feel for those who have to work in this weather, but not doing what you can or even doing your job is just not something my poor ole dad would tolerate.

Even though Gilbert is my home and I love it here, I do wish the roads were more safe.

I think where its so cold that the salt won't melt the snow. Someone told me that they saw one of the salt trucks do a donut on top of horsepen mtn last night while spreading salt.

I bet I can guess where he lives, it has to be in one of the best worked road areas.

Call to charleston. The Gov. of w.va is already having a fit about how everything going around here. He is not only going on about how the power outages were lasting so long because of how unkept they were by the power and phone companies, but how this state is becoming a disaster zone. Call and complain... If it has to be done, it has to be done... No sense in complaining online about it, especially on Topix...
