"I enjoyed your story on the high performance boat on Smith Mountain Lake but do we really need a 140 MPH boat or boats on an already crowded lake? I hope whoever buys these uses great caution."
The two-day walkout by workers at G-E over rising health insurance costs prompted this response from a viewer in Radford (Robert Hipps):
"As a retired engineer who has seen his (supposedly company paid) insurance premium increase more than 360 percent in eight years, I find it difficult to muster up any sympathy for the striking GE workers. Also, I'm sure that the 1.7 million people who have lost their jobs in 2002 would be happy to replace them at GE."
The state is looking over two proposals for widening Interstate 81, and financing it with vehicle tolls. That brought a comment from a viewer in Fincastle (Griffin Overstreet):
"Truckers play a big role in my life, bringing me food, clothes, my bed, almost everything I can think of. Now we are told truckers may have to pay a toll of $10 versus $3 for cars. And they already pay big taxes when they purchase diesel at the pumps...Give them a break!"
