Even though he is an English instructor at Morehead State University, Dr. Matthew Sutton has had two life-long artistic loves.  

Growing up in Georgetown with a father who was a high school band director for more than two decades at Scott County (Kentucky) High School, Sutton spent almost just as much time reading as he did, learning to play musical instruments. Those instruments included woodwinds and percussion in his school band or acquiring a "garage-band-level competence" on instruments like guitar and bass.

The Black Lives Matter movement of 2020 put a new lens on Morehead State University’s celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. week.

The Eagle Diversity Education Center paid homage to King’s influence during the Civil Rights Movement through week-long festivities across campus. EDEC hoped to educate students about King’s work and impact on society.

If you go to a West Virginia restaurant and order a hot dog with “everything,” most of the time you’ll end up with the same thing: a weenie in a bun topped with a beef-based chili (no beans), mayonnaise-based coleslaw, diced onion and mustard.

Some places leave off the slaw. Some places make the chili spicier than others. Some places put ketchup on it, much to the horror of slaw dog purists. But no matter these slight variations, the flavors remain more or less consistent.

State Supreme Court Justices, elected officials and Gov. Jim Justice were sworn in this afternoon, marking a subdued -- and socially distanced -- inauguration ceremony that was held outdoors at the state capitol.

It was an occasion to thank West Virginia’s public servants and reflect on the struggles of the past year.

Members of the state's coronavirus task force thanked essential, medical and military personnel, while remembering those lost to COVID-19. More than 1,800 people have died in the state since the pandemic began.
