The on-going problem of coal ash at Little Blue Run, located on the border of Pennsylvania and West Virginia at the top of WV's panhandle, has been around a while (I last wrote about it here). Little Blue Run is . . .

Which side are you on, Intelligencer?

The morning "newspaper" lectures the UMW

The lead Intelligencer editorial, "Planning Future for Miners," takes the United Mine Workers to task for having endorsed Obama in 2008.

"Intelligencer Deemed Historic" proclaims the Intelligencer front page

And the editorial page agrees!

We were due. Long overdue. It was early April when the Intelligencer last asserted how immensely important Wheeling's two "newspapers" are to the Ohio Valley.

Reading the Sunday "newspaper"

A surprising story on the front page: "Research Links Living Near Fracking to Illness"

In the year and a half that I have been doing this blog, I have never seen a story on the front page that connects fracking with health problems. I've noted on my blogs during that period the numerous studies that dealt with the . . .
