One West Virginia University professor is hoping the conflict in Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula is able to come to an end soon. Documentary photographer Roger May launches a project aimed at evaluating what Appalachia looks like 50 years after President Lyndon B. Johnson launched a 'War on Poverty.' Juice bars, which celebrate all things organic, are becoming more and more popular around the state.
