Lincoln County Carpenter Passing Skills To a New Generation


Thinking back on a tradition that’s been carried on in your family probably isn’t too hard. The Thanksgiving Turkey, or celebrating Christmas morning, or even just watching cartoons with your siblings on Saturday morning.

For one family in Lincoln County, West Virginia, the tradition is building furniture. Inside Appalachia folklife reporter, Caitlin Tan, visited the shop and brings us their story.

Also on today’s show, U.S. Senators from the Ohio Valley have reintroduced a bill that would use money from the Abandoned Mine Lands Fund for local reclamation projects. The Ohio Valley ReSource’s Becca Schimmel has the details.
