Grow Ohio Valley is a new non-profit looking to help revitalize Wheeling. A new gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender center on North Eisenhower Drive in Beckley hopes to encourage communication between them and the  gay population of the southern part of the state. Also, the West Virginia Public Theatre looks back as it begins its 30th season, while its founder considers stepping away.
