    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) endorsed a Democratic mayor to replace him in his Senate seat, which Republicans see as the top pick-up opportunity for this year. Manchin threw his support behind Wheeling Mayor Glenn Elliott (D) on Monday, saying in a video that Elliott posted on his X account that he is “proud” to support his candidacy because Elliott has “the determination, the vigor and vitality” to be successful as a senator. “He’ll show up every day to fight for West Virginia, to create jobs, grow our economy and make a better life for our people,” Manchin said of Elliott....

    Please stop, I silently beg the three drivers heading down the on ramp to Interstate 70 from Washington Avenue. I’m driving parallel to them at 55 mph with a line of traffic behind me. I have my turn signal on signifying that I’m getting off at the exit just west of that on ramp. I cannot slam on my brakes and stop on the highway to allow these drivers to merge into my lane. Yet they keep coming down the ramp toward me. Fear has crept into my throat and I cannot scream if I wanted to. Don’t they understand...

    Wheeling, WV -- In more than 2,000 cities across this great country, hundreds of thousands of people gathered to re-make history. Officials estimate more than 1,200 people packed Wheeling's Heritage Port Wednesday evening for this Tax Day Tea Party.

Burgoyne said the five went to his residence Thursday morning - one day after they were released from custody of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and two days after they were arrested by Ohio County Sheriff's deputies as alleged illegal aliens. Burgoyne, who was at home, turned the five away because they had no documents proving their claim to the gold Honda in which they were found early Tuesday. Burgoyne said the five are among...
