    Ashley Sigman says her kids were playing in the front yard of her St. Albans, WV apartment when she received a phone call from her neighbor that made her heart drop. "I have someone calling me saying you need to get out front like there is a strange man exposing himself for one and not to mention trying to lure her out the gate," said Ashley. As she ran to her front yard, the man got into his burgundy GMC Sierra and quickly drove off. She did take down his license plate number that read "WVRDNECK".

    A Grafton couple was arrested after their children were found walking by themselves along U.S. Route 50. An 8-year-old girl, 6-year-old girl and a girl young enough to not know her age were walking down U.S. Route 50 across the Fetterman Bridge, according to court documents. The clerk at the Go-Mart on Weaver Street was able to bring the girls inside and call law enforcement. Once a Grafton Police officer arrived on scene, the girls told him they were going to their grandmother's house because their mother, Dalena Austin, and their father, James Cain, didn't want them. They had three...

    WEST VIRGINIA (WVVA) West Virginia will soon be among seven other states where residents can carry a concealed weapon without a permit. This comes after West Virginia Lawmakers voted this weekend to override Governor Earl Ray Tomblin's veto on House Bill 4145. The override on Tomblin's veto means that if you're older than 21 and live in West Virginia, permitless concealed carry will be law in 90 days. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin originally veto'd the bill with safety concerns. The West Virginia House and West Virginia Senate both voted to override Tomblin's veto.
  • WV: Legislature Overrides Governor Tomblin's Veto. Constitutional Carry Becomes Law

    The West Virginia legislature did not waste any time in overriding Governor Tomblin's veto of HB 4145, also known as "Constitutional carry" or permitless carry. Governor Tomblin vetoed a similar bill in 2015, but the veto occurred after the legislature had adjourned, making a veto override difficult. This year, the Constitutional carry bill was passed early enough for the legislature to vote on a veto override if necessary. Governor Tomblin received the Constitutional carry bill on 26 February. He waited to the last possible day to veto it, 3 March. The House of Delegates overrode his veto on 4 March,...

They posted the following graphic: IMAGE ON LINK Here is a late term abortion. WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE ON LINK (Photo of Baby Malachi) It is a twisted organization that says that BANNING this (not DOING this) is cruel.

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. Across the country Saturday, pro-life supporters got together to protest Planned Parenthood with the goal of getting the federal government to cut funding for the organization. Closer to home, a group gathered at the Womens Choice Clinic in Charleston. Dozens gathered outside the clinic Saturday afternoon and were just a few of the thousands protesting Planned Parenthood nationwide. They are harming unborn children, and even the parents in the meantime. Theyre harming the mothers who come in. Not only physically, but emotionally, Amanda Perkins said. Planned Parenthood has been in the spotlight recently when videos of employees...

    Dr. Bryan Calhoun, vice chairman of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at West Virginia University, explains why abortionists should have admitting privileges. We commonly (I personally probably at least weekly) see patients at Womens and Childrens Hospital in our emergency room or ultrasound center with complications from abortions at the centers in Charleston: so much for safe and legal. These patients are told to come to our hospital because the abortion clinic providers do not have hospital privileges to care for their patients, so we must treat them as emergency drop ins. No other medical providers are allowed to care...

    After more than a century of ministry and service to West Virginia, the Capuchin friars are leaving the Mountain State this month. Vows as Capuchin friars require they live together in community as brothers, sharing a prayer life and meals. A minimum of three brothers is necessary to fulfill this supportive environment. The area has two Capuchin friars serving five Catholic parishes in Kanawha and Putnam counties. The Rev. James Kurtz serves St. Anthony on Charlestons West Side and Our Lady of the Hills in Elkview. The Rev. Joseph Tuscan serves Holy Trinity in Nitro, Christ the King in Dunbar...

    For more than 100 years, an order of Capuchin Franciscan priests has prayed and preached in the Kanawha Valley, celebrating baptisms and marriages, comforting the bereaved, ministering to the needs of generation after generation of Catholics, always based in a small church on the West Side of Charleston. As of today, the Capuchin presence on the West Side, in Charleston, in the Kanawha Valley and in the state of West Virginia, is no more. The orders provincial minister, based in Pittsburgh, made the decision to reassign the two remaining Capuchin priests in the state after concluding the community here could...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) A Democrat has refiled a proposal banning abortions after 20 weeks gestation in West Virginia, despite its veto last year. On Tuesday, Fayette County Del. David Perry reintroduced the bill that Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed. It bans abortions after 20 weeks, except for when expectant mothers have certain serious medical emergencies. Leading up to last year's election, the Democratic-run House and Senate passed the proposal overwhelmingly.

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. A lawsuit is blaming a restaurant's bad meatloaf for the deaths of a former West Virginia state lawmaker and her husband. Former Delegate Virginia Starcher's family filed the lawsuit last month against New Albany, Ohio-based Bob Evans Farms in Jackson County Circuit Court. Bob Evans spokeswoman Hinda Mitchell said Friday the chain will vigorously defend itself in the matter. Starcher and her husband, Harold, ate part of their meatloaf meals from a Bob Evans in Ripley in October 2012. Their takeout dishes included meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli and a roll, the lawsuit says.
