EXCHANGE-DISASTER KITS

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. _ For Joy Buskirk, the memories of a fire her family experienced years ago prompted her to do something for families who are impacted by the devastation of a fire now. The Parkersburg resident is putting together After The Disaster Kits and has begun distributing them to a couple of the local fire departments. By Brett Dunlap, The Parkersburg News and Sentinel.

EXCHANGE-WVA ARTIST

CHARLESTON, W.Va. _ The message came in October, completely out of the blue. “I received an email from someone ... They said they saw ‘Gravity,’ loved my work and asked if they could send my website info to the curator for the U.S. Embassy in Sri Lanka,” said artist Kelly Scudieri. By Maria Young, Charleston Gazette-Mail.
