With the exception of a sports page editor, apparently no one works at the Intelligencer on weekends. This morning's Wheeling "newspaper" had the following four stories on the front page:
Justice Remembers Wheeling's Place in His Company's History
The WV governor visited Wheeling last Wednesday and told Joselyn King a story about another visit to Wheeling 25 years ago. His irrelevant story is the entire article and it takes up (with photo) over half of the front page. I defy you to find anything newsworthy in the article.
Speakers Explore Wheeling Writer's Legacy
Another article is about the presentation given by two local historians at the Ohio County Library's Lunch With Books. Last Tuesday, Margaret Brennan and Rebekah Karelis discussed 19th century Wheeling writer, Rebecca Harding Davis.
Officials: Plant Would Be A Plus
This article is about a meeting on the proposed ethane cracker in Belmont County which took place last Tuesday. According to the article, 140 people attended which means there is a great deal of interest in the subject. If this was an important meeting about a subject that may be critical to the Ohio Valley (as it appears to be), why wasn't this article in last Wednesday's paper? (To answer my own question, a subject's relevance and timeliness are unimportant when compared to the Intelligencer's higher priority of making sure there will be sufficient material to fill-up the front page of the Monday paper.)
Finally, one front-page article did meet those criteria -- an AP story about the death of former President George H. W. Bush:
Americans Begin Saying Their Goodbyes to Bush
