Mingo Family Build On Their Hatfield History To Boost Business

On this West Virginia Morning, the Hatfield and McCoy ATV trail system that runs through southern West Virginia is an example of how people are using the well-known history of the infamous feud to boost the economy.

Other businesses in the region have cropped up in recent years with the name -- most of them catering to trail riders. Inside Appalachia host Jessica Lilly met one family in Gilbert who are attracting visitors by sharing a piece of their tradition, craft, and even their story.

Also on today’s show, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources has selected Aetna Better Health of West Virginia as the company to oversee their management of foster care in West Virginia. Roxy Todd reports.
