You may have heard about a recent discovery of bacteria in the Ohio River.

If this is something you have questions about, there's a meeting Wednesday night where you'll have that opportunity.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, along with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, are sponsoring a meeting Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Williamstown City Hall.

It's to inform the public about a study being done with the bacteria in the river, and the public will have a chance to ask questions.

    Bacteria in the river? Oxygen in the air? Birds have feathers? Bears poop in the woods? It's amazing what new discoveries are being made by modern science these days!

    Is there anyone who REALLY ever thought that there wasn't bacteria, among other things, in that river? Quite the discovery there, not.
