The American Lung Association says air pollution in the state's metropolitan areas has generally improved but there’s more ozone, or smog, in every county where it was measured. Young people that choose to stay in West Virginia often find themselves stereotyped by those who've left for other opportunities. Also, quilts are the primary form of art on display in Berkeley as the annual Delectable Mountains Quilt Guild’s Yard Square Quilt Auction kicks off.
