Shifts In Power At The State Legislature And Navigating Dementia During The Holidays On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, as lawmakers prepare for the upcoming 2023 regular state legislative session, they do so with a near historic imbalance of political party power. Government Reporter Randy Yohe spoke with the leaders of both state political parties on what brought them to this point and their expectations for the future.

Also, in this show, while the holiday season can be a wonderful time for families getting together, with lights and traditions, it can be a difficult time for people struggling with dementia. News Director Eric Douglas spoke with Jennifer Reeder, a licensed clinical social worker and director of Education and Social Services at the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, to get some tips for families.
