When it comes to smoking, there is not much good news in West Virginia and Kentucky.
The collision of a car and a tractor-trailer truck on Monday in Huntington had serious consequences, the most significant being that the car’s driver was badly hurt. Others included damage to the truck and the fact that the intersection of 5th Avenue and Hal Greer Boulevard was closed for five hours, forcing additional traffic congestion in that area and increasing the risks of more accidents. But considering the location of the accident, the repercussions could have been worse. The intersection where this happened is one of the busiest in the city. 5th Avenue is the eastbound route through the city for U.S. 60, while Hal Greer Boulevard also is W.Va. 10 and brings in large volumes of traffic to the downtown area from I-64.

"A classic," said English essayist and philosopher G.K. Chesterton, "is something everyone wants to have read, and no one wants to read." That said, I have not only read a fair number of classics but am currently rereading one of my favorites.
I have lived in the Huntington metro area my whole life. There is only one other place in the country I call home, and that is Ann Arbor, Mich. However, that is not why I am writing to you. I am writing to you about Chuck Landon, that so called Marshall football expert who runs his piehole every week about Marshall.
Breastfeeding is a gift that can last a lifetime. Babies and children who receive breast milk have lower rates of respiratory and ear infections compared with infants who drink formula. People who were breastfed as infants and children are at a lower risk to develop chronic illnesses such as obesity, certain types of cancer and heart disease.
