The resilience of Rainelle

RAINELLE, W.Va. — Driving down the main drag in the Greenbrier County town of Rainelle, you’ll notice some empty store fronts. The town has suffered the same struggles most small towns in Appalachia have endured as their biggest industry pulled up stakes and left the town with no new source of income. But there is still spirit in Rainelle and when you consider what the town endured five years ago, it’s hard to imagine how anything is still open or anyone is still living there at all.

Rupert Elementary Has A Mindfulness Success Story

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), including abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction have been significantly associated with poor emotion regulation, worse mental health, and worse physical health outcomes (e.g., drug use, heart disease, liver disease; Centers for Disease Control, 2019; Cloitre et al., 2019; Felitti et al. 1988). In the state of West Virginia, the majority of children under the age of 18 (52%) have experienced at least one ACE, compared to 46% nationally (ACES Coalition WV, 2018). Adverse childhood...

WVDA To Conduct Aerial Black Fly Treatment

The West Virginia Department of Agriculture will be conducting aerial treatments for biological suppression of black flies on the New, Bluestone, and Greenbrier Rivers on Wednesday, June 23, weather and water levels permitting. Potentially, the treatments may continue into Thursday, June 24. The West Virginia Department of Agriculture Black Fly Control Program has the responsibility of significantly reducing the black fly population in southeastern West Virginia without adversely affecting non-target aquatic organisms within the area of treatment. This is accomplished by monitoring black fly larval development in certain southern West Virginia river systems for the purpose of determining the optimum time to conduct black fly control operations. Suppression activities target problem areas of the New, Bluestone and Greenbrier Rivers. The post WVDA To Conduct Aerial Black Fly Treatment appeared first on West Virginia Daily News.
