Mtn. News: Early October News

In this episode we bring you two recent stories from the Ohio Valley Resource, and, we dust off a piece from our archives.  

First, we learn about a recent lecture at West Virginia University by David Zatezalo – Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health Administration.  Zatezalo lays out the Trump Administration’s priorities for MSHA. Then, we learn about the challenges facing one West Virginia woman in recovery. Wendy Crites was stopped for driving under the influence of suboxone – even though it’s a prescribed medication aiding in her recovery.  

And last, from the archives, we’ll hear a 2014 interview that Sylvia Ryerson did with Tom Brown – an apple grower from Clemmons, NC who has saved hundreds of varieties of Heirloom apples.  To learn more about Brown’s work, and the apple varieties he has preserved so far, visit his website

Music on this episode is Owen Snake Chapman with a tune called “In Come A Little Bee” from the June Appal recording.
