This morning we welcomed Thomas Rodd back on the program. He shared some very interesting information regarding the history of West Virginia and the Eastern Panhandle. Turns out the panhandle has always been a very important part of the state. He highlighted a play at Shepherd University featuring J.R. Clifford, an African American resident of Martinsburg who had an historic role. Learn more about the J.R. Clifford Project to see exaclty how important this man was!
Ken Collinson and Jane Yearout stopped in to chat about the Berkeley County Democratic Association. I am always interested to find out what role the party faithful play in an election. Their big dinner is set for this Thursday. Tickets are available at their website.
Jefferson County Commissioner Frances Morgan in studio to make her case for reelection. The incumbent Democrat is facing a rematch against Republican Jane Tabb. You can learn more about Commissioner Morgan's positions at her website.
