FOOD BANK WORKING TO REBUILD TRUST: A new leader and revitalized board of directors have created a renewed vision at the Huntington Area Food Bank. But newly named executive director Tiffany Tatum said she understands the public’s guarded perception of the organization, which this year is celebrating its 30th anniversary. “Sure I do,” Tatum said, when asked if she thought the community has lost some trust in the agency. “The loss of trust from the public is obvious and expected, but I’m trying to ensure we’re taking measures to regain that trust.” Read more about the changes at the food bank in Sunday's edition of THe Herald-Dispatch.
FOUR DECADES OF SHARP DUDS: They’ve gone from powder blue tuxes and ruffled shirts to the “Miami Vice”-style jackets with the sleeves rolled up and the “Dynasty” look, to today’s theme of anything goes. In 40 years of selling tuxedos for weddings, high school proms, galas, musical performances and other formal events, Skeffington’s Formal Wear has sent men of all ages and sizes — from the tiniest ring-bearers to size 70 gentlemen — out looking their finest.

DOCUMENTARY ON W.VA. RIVERS TO PREMIERE ON WVPBS: Russ Barbour may live in Huntington but in the past few years the documentary filmmaker has been wandering like a kid, chasing stories he found floating along the New, Gauley and Bluestone rivers. Fresh off of his coal-camp, Gorge-based documentary, “The Winding Gulf: Stories from West Virginia’s Coalfield,” Barbour, who has worked for West Virginia Public Broadcasting for more than 30 years, found himself immersed again in the stories flowing through the deep gorges of our ancient Appalachian Mountains. Premiering at 8 p.m. today, March 3, is the 90-minute documentary, “Three Rivers: The Bluestone, Gauley and New,” that was produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting, with assistance from the National Park Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and the Department of Agriculture, organizations charged with protecting portions of the New, Bluestone and Gauley and the lands through which they flow.
