The American Legion is sending representatives to North Central West Virginia this week to help veterans better understand the benefits available to them. A group on Charleston's West Side is working on narrowing down ways they can revive the urban neighborhood. An education summit in Morgantown was focused on redefining college for West Virginia students, and Marie Manilla, a Huntington native, talks about her new book "Patron Saint of Ugly."

Ashton can also be heard Sunday evenings as she brings you state headlines during NPR’s weekend edition of All Things Considered. She joined the news team in October of 2012.
