We don't put slaw on Coleman's fish either. Slaw is a side dish in these parts, not a condiment.

With the traffic and congestion, the seemingly precariously placed row houses, and high taxes you'd have to have a very special reason to want to live there.
Good news for the Wheeling, WV metro.

4.4 percent growth and manufacturing is robust. Look at the income in Marshall county

Weirton has mixed news. Overall decline of 1.7 percent but manufacturing is up 3.8 percent. The decline in utilities and trade is puzzling.

Overall it looks like manufacturing is back in the Valley. Thoughts?

That's great news! It will take a long time to replace tens of thousands of high paying lost steel and manufacturing jobs lost in the 1980s+ open borders insanity, but it can certainly happen when the cracker facilities come online. The UOV has the potential to return bigger and better than ever.

If the second plant comes online down across the river from Wheeling you have to think the office buildings in downtown will be filled or converted over to residential. There will be a lot of demand for housing and establishing small business.

The manufacturing in both wheeling and Weirton is impressive. While nearby Pittsburgh declined 2 percent in manufacturing. The northern panhandle May grow despite stagnation by Pittsburgh. Yes?

My opinion … the Pittsburgh area will also experience a major increase in manufacturing as a result of regional cracker activity, it just won't be in the Burgh proper. The Ohio River Valley from Pittsburgh to Parkersburg, including all of the Northern Panhandle, is poised for major growth due to proximity to natural resources and crackers.

ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS AGREE TO STEP ASIDE

The proposed multi billion dollar ethane cracker facility directly across the Ohio River from Moundsville received a huge shot in the arm today as environmental groups withdrew their objections to the facility. One has to believe a decision on the development will be forthcoming shortly.
