Kanawha County residents last night got a better understanding of how the January 9th chemical spill affected the community  as results from a scientific survey were released. A competition on Concord University’s campus sprang folks into walking more than 42,000,000 steps, the equivalent of going across the United States almost 6 ½ times. Efforts continue to help save Hemlock trees in Preston County's Cranesville Swamp from an invasive insect.
