tarar@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Washington County might not buy Charmin, but for a government that tears through 48,000 rolls of toilet paper a year, the price fits the budget. The county will spend $11,125 this fiscal year on toilet paper, which is enough to buy 500 cases. At 96 rolls per case and 1,000 sheets per roll, that's 48 million sheets of one-ply toilet paper the county estimates it will use in a year. The county typically buys some items in bulk to save money, such as paper towels, copier paper and other daily supplies.

For real savings, cut bureaucrats,not toilet paper To the editor: The Western Correctional Institution (WCI) administration has converted the already inferior-grade toilet paper distributed to the inmate population to smaller rolls, and about the same time stocked the prison commissary with toilet paper at 80 cents per roll. Now, not surprisingly, the officials are refusing to provide toilet paper (claiming not to have it) when the inadequate weekly provision is depleted.

Some stores in Washington County were fast running out of essential bad-weather supplies such as generators and flashlights Monday, but grocery store shelves for the most part held what people were seeking. After a hectic weekend of grocery shopping in preparation for Hurricane Sandy, the rush appeared to slow down at some area grocery stores Monday. The Martin's grocery store on Wesel Boulevard had bottles of water, bread, batteries, ice packs, paper towels, toilet paper and milk all in stock, but it was running low on water, paper towels and toilet paper.

I've tried to keep this politically polarized world of ours straight as possible, but I've finally gone off the map. So I quit. You can pay attention if you want, but I'm done. And it's all Bradley Manning's fault. I admit, I was pretty much there already. It's grown incredibly wearisome to listen to people being pigeonholed based on party. You like peanut butter, so you must be a liberal, or you like chocolate, so you must be a conservative. Have Reese's Cups taught us nothing?

Davie burst out of his trailer, sopping, a towel clutched around his waist, "Dmitry! You fool!" The cat flopped on its back and batted the long roll of paper wound around his neck. Toilet paper? No! "It's a string of bills! Money! Taped together!" I cried. "My money!" P. Jaybody, the circus owner shouted. "This is great!" ValJohn, the clown, clapped his hands and laughed. "I'm going to steal this act. " Stricken and hysterical, Davie's skeletal, ivory body flushed blood red. He froze for a second, before making a vain attempt to disentangle Dmitry from his paper scarf.
