    What? This is part of the Stimulus money according to WTAP report.. I thought that money was to go to "shovel ready projects". This does not create jobs- the number 1 objective of stimulus money. I'm all for money for the Ohio Valley but lets get real with stimulus money! CREATE SOME JOBS!!!

    This shows the community what respect that the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department has in Charleston and Washington DC. I hope that this money has its intended impact. Wittberg should be congratulated in receiving this for our community.
