In Wheeling writer Alan Fitzpatrick's new book, A Place of Skulls, he says the city has a dark history. Kids from the surrounding areas were in Huntington this week taking part in Arts and Bots: Exploring Robotics and the Arts. Also, the sharpest eighth graders in social studies and arts from various counties participate in a scavenger hunt in downtown Charleston.
