Special Session, County Fairs And KY Small Businesses, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the West Virginia Legislature returned for its special session after introducing 44 bills in each chamber on Sunday. Several bills were sent to the Finance and Judiciary committees for further consideration. Briana Heaney has more.

Also, in this show, much needed federal dollars could be headed towards small businesses across rural Eastern Kentucky soon through a new technical assistance grant. Shepherd Snyder has more.

And county fairs bring out the cooks and the crafters hoping to take home the coveted blue ribbon. Few have been as successful as Linda Skeens from Russell County, Virginia. She’s won hundreds, which has made her a social media sensation and a cookbook author. Inside Appalachia Bill Lynch spoke with her about county fair contests and collecting recipes.
