Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and other state officials announce a partnership with The Pew Charitable Trusts to study and improve the state's juvenile justice system. As part of the Turn This Town Around project, Matewan hopes grant funding can help revitalize the community. Also, as part of West Virginia University's School of Theatre and Dance, Morgantown's Repertory Theatre presents an original children's program, The Unlikely Princess.
