We previewed “A New Home for Liberty,” a play coming up October 20th and 21st at Shepherd University. Thomas Rodd with the J.R. Clifford Project joined us to talk about the show that tells the story of West Virginia's founding through the eyes of Martinsburg attorney J.R. Clifford.

We also visited with democratic candidate for Berkeley County Council Mark Barney. Mark shared some of his ideas for saving money in the county budget. He also addressed concerns that have risen about his full time job as a teacher in Berkeley County. Learn more abut the campaign at his website.
We wrapped up with Jim Smith. He volunteers a lot of his time at the Dillon Farm Museum. This Saturday and Sunday (October 13th and 14th) from 9 to 5 will be the annual Fall Festival. Jim spoke about the importance of the museum and shared some details about new additions to their displays. Check it out this weekend right across from James Rumsey off of Route 9.
