On this West Virginia Week, West Virginia residents were united by Monday’s solar eclipse, spreading out across college campuses and community parks to observe the astronomical event.

Meanwhile, decision-making over last week’s storms has proven more divisive among state officials.

We’ll dive into these topics, plus changes to a pair of West Virginia sawmills, how Muslim residents celebrated the end of Ramadan, and the much-anticipated return of the American chestnut to Appalachia.

Jack Walker is our host this week. Our theme music is by Matt Jackfert.
