I BRIDGE CEREMONY
    A MAJOR KANAWHA VALLEY THOROUGHFARE IS ONCE AGAIN OPEN FOR TRAFFIC.

Return to Story Index




LESLIE @ BRIDGE
    EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER LESLIE RUBIN JOINS US LIVE FROM THE DICK HENDERSON BRIDGE WITH THE STORY OF TODAY'S GRAND RE-OPENING.

Return to Story Index




BRIDGE CEREMONY
    DRIVERS HAVE BEEN FORCED TO DETOUR AROUND THIS AREA FOR MORE THAN NINE MONTHS.

    BUT THANKS TO QUICK WORK BY THE CONTRACTOR AND COOPERATIVE WEATHER, THE SPAN LINKING NITRO AND ST. ALBANS IS BUZZING WITH TRAFFIC ONCE AGAIN.

    Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: After nearly 10 months with a price tag of 24 million dollars, the new Dick Henderson bridge officially re-opens.

    Lorraine Henderson/Dick Henderson's Widow: It means so much for the posterity of the family for what he was working for.

    Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: This project came in on time and on budget, with much of the credit going to the state offering incentives to prospective contractors to get the span finished before the 2013 holiday shopping season.

    Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin/(D) West Virginia: I think the fact that the incentives were added in to get it done in less than a year, I think it's great that in less than 10 months they were able to complete this entire project.

    Paul Mattox/W.Va. Sec. of Transportation: We want to do everything we can to get the contractors to perform more efficiently and as effectively as possible.

    Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: Initially, federal highways officials wanted the bridge re-located. But local government representatives convinced them that building it on the existing piers made financial sense, saving millions of dollars.

    Sen. Joe Manchin/(D) West Virginia: They convinced them though, let us do it here because we can save 75 percent of the money. They saved 75 million dollars and did it in ten months. This is the common sense that West Virginia has that we lack in Washington.

    Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: While the bridge was under construction, both St. Albans and Nitro suffered economically. However, it was the smaller city that took the biggest hit.

    Mayor Dave Casebolt/Nitro: In the last 10 months our community has lost about 12,8 million dollars in commerce. That's over 30,000 dollars a day and that's not including the Marketplace. So, this bridge is very important to the economic stability of our city.

    In St. Albans and Nitro, Kennie Bass, Eyewitness News.

I ECONOMIC IMPACT
    OF COURSE - WHILE THIS BRIDGE WAS SHUT DOWN - BUSINESSES ON BOTH SIDES WERE TREMENDOUSLY AFFECTED. TODAY - WE SAW SIGNS WELCOMING EACH SIDE BACK....

    THOSE BUSINESS OWNERS SAY IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME FOR BUSINESS TO PICK BACK UP, BUT THEY ARE OPTIMISTIC. JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW MUCH THIS 10 MONTH CLOSURE AFFECTED THESE BUSINESSES - WE TALKED TO PEOPLE WHO HAD TO LET WORKERS GO, CHANGE THEIR HOURS, AND SUFFERED LOSSES OF MORE THAN 85-PERCENT IN PROFITS.

    RICHARD STADLER, PROUCE JUNCTION OWNER

    "Over the past year they'v been shopping at Krogers or whatever. So they've got to come back and hopefully we can get some of the new people in, get a younger group"

    SEVERAL OF THOSE PLACES SAY THEY WILL BE HIRING THE WORKERS BACK THAT HAD TO BE LET GO - AND THEY'RE JUST READY TO GET BACK INTO THE SWING OF THINGS...

I CHH STRIKE VOTE
    NEARLY 800 WORKERS AT CABELL HUNTINGTON HOSPITAL ARE MULLING OVER A CONTRACT AGREEMENT BETWEEN THEIR UNION AND THEIR EMPLOYER... BUT IF THEY DON'T GET WHAT THEY WANT... THEY SAY THEY COULD VOTE TO STRIKE.

    NEGOTIATIONS HAVE BEEN ONGOING WITH HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATION TO RENEW THE CONTRACT THAT EXPIRES AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

    IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE THE LAST VOTE... AND UNION MEMBERS SAY THEY MADE SEVERAL CONCESSIONS THAT YEAR WITH WAGES, HEALTHCARE AND RETIREMENT.

    THEY SAY CURRENT CONCERNS ARE PENSIONS AND HEALTHCARE FOR PART-TIME WORKERS.

    "We took major concessions on health care at that point in time, and we feel like we've done our part in 2010, and now that they are growing and doing well, we feel like we should not be in concessionary bargaining."

    NEGOTIATIONS WILL CONTINUE INDEFINITELY, BUT UNION MEMBERS WILL START VOTING ON WHETHER THEY'LL GIVE A 10-DAY NOTICE TO STRIKE AT 6-30 TOMORROW MORNING.

I ELM STREET SHOOTING
    A CLOSE CALL FOR A MAN ON CHARLESTON'S WEST SIDE -- DODGING BULLETS WHILE INSIDE HIS OWN HOME.

INTO 30 MILE MEAL
    A PASSIONATE GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THE HUNTINGTON AREA IS TRYING TO CONNECT MORE LOCAL RESTAURANTS TO LOCAL FOOD SOURCES.

    EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER DARRAH WILCOX TELLS US HOW IN THIS WEEK'S HEALTHY FOR LIFE.

    Bridging the gap between regional food producers with buyers from area restaurants, grocery stores and school systems. That was the goal of the first ever local food expo held in Huntington recently.

    "I feel like we have so much potential with Huntington being a mid-sized city, surrounded by all of this rural land, all of this farming activity, if we could capture that, I feel like it could be a really big input into our local economy."

    People who attended got a chance to taste locally prepared foods and network to find out more about establishing a network that makes buying local more accessible.

    "Maybe you're sitting at a restaurant with this beautiful plate of food in front of you, and you don't realize all the work it takes to get it there."

    21 at the Frederick is part of the 30 mile meal program, incorporating local ingredients into their menu.

    "It's all about the seasonality. Our goal is to get fresh seasonal ingredients, something that's the best around, and get it to the people."

    Chancey said it adds a layer of transparency when you establish more local connections.

    Zachary Chancey / Sous chef 21 at the Frederick

    "You know exactly where it`s coming from. You can have a conversation with the farmer. You can see that these people are passionate. It`s a group of passionate people doing something that we all enjoy."

    sigout

    THEY HOPE TO CREATE A BUYER-GROWER DIRECTORY TO BETTER CONNECT THE TWO...
