Panhandle Live for August 28, 2012

Martinsburg-Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Tina Combs was in today to shine the “Chamber Spotlight” on Around the Panhandle Magazine with publisher Mike Hornby. We got a history of the periodical and what has been happening there for the last four years.
Next was former delegate Craig Blair. He was gearing up for a big day at the Republican National Convention. The republican national platform was to be adopted and Blair offered some insight on what areas he feels the GOP has right for West Virginia.
And after four years, the board in charge of the electric grid in the Mid-Atlantic States, PJM, decided to remove the Potomac-Appalachian Transmission Highline (PATH) from their regional transmission plans. Karyn Newman and Patience Wait have been waiting to hear those words for all that time. Joe Ferretti joined me in studio to talk with these members of Stop PATH and find out what is next for their cause.
