Momentum continues to mount behind local food and local economic development efforts in the Northern panhandle. Wheeling was one of the top picks in a national Local Foods, Local Places Competition. As a result, local organizations are receiving technical assistance from multiple state and federal agencies to help capitalize on the growing demand for local foods.  Meetings with federal agency representatives began last week.

Work is underway to reset the headstones at Wheeling's oldest cemetery.
Most of the headstones at the city-owned Mount Wood Cemetery have fallen, either due to shifting land or vandalism. 

The Restore Mount Wood Cemetery project is being funded by donations to the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley. Monument company Rock of Ages donated its time to reset four large obelisks.
