From AP Members:


SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. _ It was pouring down the rain - the kind of frigid, wet drizzle that only comes from raindrops on the cusp of becoming snowflakes. They were almost there. It was also a school night, and with the weather, darkness had come early. By Maria Young, Charleston Gazette-Mail.


FAIRMONT, W.Va. _ Xander Hayes was trying out for the part of King Louie at the auditions for Disney’s “The Jungle Book Kids.” “My favorite animal is monkeys, and I just thought he would be a cool part to do,” he said. By Eric Hrin, Times West Virginian.
