Women’s March on West Virginia

In solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington January 21, there was a march at the State Capitol in Charleston that drew almost 3,000 people.

When the march got going, it extended completely around the Capitol Complex. The beginning of the line reached the starting point before the end of the line got going.

Flood Cleanup

Went to Clendenin WV to participate in some cleanup work following the recent flood. It’s not just water in houses, the river left mud and debris inside and out. Lots of outside help happening in this town, and the folks here appreciate it. Lots more to do.

This 1948 newspaper was behind the drywall of one house; the lead article talks about flooding on the same Elk River that wrecked this community a couple of weeks ago.
