BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — Surviving assault and coping with the death of her child was not easy for Amanda Barbo-Vezinat during her time overseas serving in the United States Army; however, her resiliency led her to persevere through those traumatic events and she now says of her service that she would “do it all again.” Amanda Barbo-Vezinat, now 35, decided to join the United States Army at the age of 24, and served for roughly 10 years. By Sarah Goodrich, The Inter-Mountain.


PINE GROVE, W.Va. — Despite years of designing clothing for the Hollywood elite, Matt Van Dyne is adamant: he never has forgotten his roots, and he never will. Van Dyne will return to his native Pine Grove in Wetzel County for the Shortline Alumni banquet. He will serve as this year’s Honored Alumnus. By Lauren Matthews, Parkersburg News and Sentinel.
