Corrections Crisis, Burnwood Trail And A Civil Rights Tour, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, lawmakers say bills passed in the special session to help solve the state’s corrections employment crisis are not a cure-all. And a lawsuit demands the state spend more than 10 times the funds allocated. Randy Yohe has more. 

Also, in this show, travel can be a wonderful teaching tool. Some tours spend time focusing on specific aspects of our world, like journeying through America’s southern states to learn about the country’s racial legacy and the impact of the civil rights movement. Us & Them host Trey Kay joined an immersive tour that offered multiple perspectives from diverse leaders.

The New River Gorge National Park and Preserve inducted the Burnwood Trail into the Old Growth Forest Network last Friday. Briana Heaney has the story.
