HUNTINGTON, W.Va. Huntington Mayor Steve Williams predicts people wont recognize Hal Greer Boulevard in five to seven years.

We have rezoned that entire corridor of that highway commercial and thats going to invite investment to the area, Williams said.

The changes to Hal Greer Blvd are much needed and past due. This certainly lends more credibility to the rumors about the new pharmacy/drug store coming to the Hal Greer/Charleston Ave intersection.

Huntington gets props for its social media presence:

City governments in West Virginia range from the extreme ends of the “connectivity” spectrum. Some cities, like Cedar Grove, don’t even have e-mail access (at least not as of 2013), while others, like Huntington, have a very active media presence.

In Expeditionary Learning, students learn by conducting learning expeditions rather than by sitting in a classroom being taught one subject at a time. The school district has partnered with the Harless Center to offer teachers in Cabell County and throughout the state training on that type of learning approach.

The board also will vote on a measure for testing and balancing of the school that includes a $10,340 bid from Thermal Balance Inc.

The incubator school is projected to open near the start of the 2015-16 school year, and its student population will come from the consolidation of Peyton and Geneva-Kent elementary schools.

In other business, the board will consider a second Innovation Zone Grant by Huntington and Cabell Midland high schools in collaboration with Marshall University.

That grant also is for $300,000, and it will help establish the Marshall Early College Academy at each high school.

HUNTINGTON -- Huntington Mayor Steve Williams released a statement Monday narrowing the candidate pool for the city's top cop position down to two men.

After a background check process that took nearly three months, Williams said former Huntington Police Department officer and retired FBI agent Joe Ciccarelli and Chicago Police Department Lt. Maurice Richards are the two men being considered to step in as the city's next police chief.

Williams said he will be interviewing both candidates this week, but there is no time frame set for a decision.

Cassey Bowden, marketing director for the Nick J. Rahall Transportation Institute, the lead agency for the PATH, said Sunday's event raised an estimated $60,000 to $65,000.

"Things are actually better than expected," she said. "We've spread out the events, and we've been posting on social media today to try and get more people to come out, and they've been coming out."

The event is a big draw because it gives kids and families a chance to be outdoors together, but also because of the cause, Bowden said.
