Weirton, West Virginia

Junction, Ohio . Parissi graduated from Mingo High School in 1968. Rob formed the band Wild Cherry in 1970 in Steubenville, Ohio, one mile north of Mingo Junction along the Ohio River. The band's name "Wild Cherry" was taken from a box of cough drops while Rob was recuperating from a brief hospital stay. The band played the Ohio Valley region, Wheeling, West Virginia and the rest of the Northern West Virginia panhandle, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The original lineup included: Ben Difabbio (drums and vocals), Louie Osso (guitar, lead and background vocals) from Steubenville, Ohio, Larry Brown (bass, lead and background vocals) from Weirton, West Virginia, Larry Mader (keyboards, lead and background vocals) from East Springfield, Ohio, and Rob Parissi (lead vocals and guitar). Over time, the band members changed, with Osso, Brown, and Mader leaving the band, and Rob's cousin, Coogie Stoddart (guitar, lead and background vocals), Joe Buchmelter (bass), and Buckie Lusk (bass) joining (with Buchmelter leaving again in the 1970s). Andrews was born in Holiday's Cove, Virginia (now Weirton, West Virginia). He moved to Kentucky, where he found employment as a house painter and singing coach. During the Civil War, he was engaged in buying contraband merchandise (including quinine) and smuggling it between the military lines. While serving as a secret agent and scout in Nashville, Tennessee, for Major General Don Carlos Buell in the spring of 1862, he devised a plan to take eight men to steal a train in Atlanta, Georgia, and drive it north. They would disrupt Confederate (Confederate States Army) communications in western Tennessee and burn the long railroad bridge over the Tennessee River at Bridgeport. The mission failed when the required engineer failed to show up at the designated meeting place. On July 22, 1853, the president of the S&I deeded right-of-way he had bought from 36 landowners across the Virginia Panhandle to the P&S. This allowed the railroad to build without a charter, which was required to use eminent domain; the powerful city of Wheeling (Wheeling (WV)) had opposed the P&S, which bypassed Wheeling. The private "'''Edgington and Wells Railroad'''" (named after its owners, Jesse Edgington and Nathaniel Wells (Nathaniel Wells (Virginia Panhandle)) of Brooke County (Brooke County (WV))) opened July 4, 1854 but failed later that year, as it did not connect to any other railroads. The '''Holliday's Cove Rail Road''' was chartered by the Western Transportation Company on March 30, 1860 in Virginia to build across the Panhandle near what is now Weirton, West Virginia; the charter was only used to build the Steubenville Railroad Bridge. The next day the Wheeling Railroad Bridge Company was chartered by the same company, as a political promise to allow the incorporation of the HCRR. Established in 1972, WVNCC delivers a comprehensive, two-year degree program for all six counties in West Virginia's Northern Panhandle (Northern Panhandle of West Virginia). In addition to the main campus, WVNCC has branches in Weirton (Weirton, West Virginia) and New Martinsville (New Martinsville, West Virginia). The college is known throughout the Ohio Valley to have very reasonable tuition while still maintaining a high quality of education. On June 23, 2000, work began on a project that widened WV 2 from two to four lanes from Weirton (Weirton, West Virginia) at US 22 (Robert C. Byrd Expressway) (U.S. Route 22) south to CR 8 near Follansbee (Follansbee, West Virginia). The project length was just 0.9 miles.

Wheeling, West Virginia

in the City of Charleston (Charleston, West Virginia). History Rob Parissi (lead vocals & guitar) was raised in the steel mill town of Mingo Junction, Ohio. Parissi graduated from Mingo High School in 1968. Rob formed the band Wild Cherry in 1970 in Steubenville, Ohio, one mile north of Mingo Junction along the Ohio River. The band's name "Wild Cherry" was taken from a box of cough drops while Rob was recuperating from a brief hospital stay. The band played the Ohio Valley region, Wheeling, West Virginia and the rest of the Northern West Virginia panhandle, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The original lineup included: Ben Difabbio (drums and vocals), Louie Osso (guitar, lead and background vocals) from Steubenville, Ohio, Larry Brown (bass, lead and background vocals) from Weirton, West Virginia, Larry Mader (keyboards, lead and background vocals) from East Springfield, Ohio, and Rob Parissi (lead vocals and guitar). Over time, the band members changed, with Osso, Brown, and Mader leaving the band, and Rob's cousin, Coogie Stoddart (guitar, lead and background vocals), Joe Buchmelter (bass), and Buckie Lusk (bass) joining (with Buchmelter leaving again in the 1970s). Transportion and hospitality magnate In 1839, he began the construction of the first of three Neil House Hotels at a cost of $100,000, which stood across from the statehouse until 1974. He also ventured into the stage coach business, owning lines to Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia), Cleveland, Sandusky (Sandusky, Ohio), Marietta (Marietta, Ohio) and Indianapolis, and at one point said to own all of the stage lines from Cumberland, Maryland to St. Louis. By 1845 he had ventured into the railroad industry, the new transportation technology from that time. "Columbus: the story of a city", Ed Lentz. Arcadia Publishing, 2003. ISBN 0738524298, 9780738524290. p. 56. He was involved in the construction of the first rail to Xenia, "History of the city of Columbus, capital of Ohio, Volume 2", Alfred Emory Lee. W.W. Munsell & Co. 1892. p. 251. and would operate rail lines to Cleveland and Indiana. In 1789, historic Nemacolin Castle, trading post, and tavern was built up on the bluff about 0.75 miles to the east along Burd's Road (the western stretch of The Nemacolin Trail through Brownsville and across Washington County (Washington County, Pennsylvania) to Wheeling, West Virginia eastwards to the junction with Braddock's Road in Uniontown (Uniontown, Pennsylvania) by Bowman near Redstone Old Fort and this crossing (Ford (crossing)), at what became a major link in the first National Road (aka U.S. 40 twenty years later) at what is today the towns of West Brownsville (West Brownsville, Pennsylvania) and Brownsville (Brownsville, Pennsylvania) of (Washington and Fayette Counties respectively), the joint sites of the first Iron Bridge built in the United States. The early settlement around the fort also came to be called Redstone, but eventually became eponymously known as Brownsville, Pennsylvania after its farsighted developer Thomas Brown (Thomas Brown (businessman)). The use of "Redstone" devolved to apply to just one of its neighborhoods. The 1861 '''Wheeling Convention''' was a series of two meetings that ultimately repealed the Ordinance of Secession passed by Virginia, thus establishing the ''Restored government of Virginia'', which ultimately authorized the counties that organized the convention to become West Virginia. The convention was held at what became known as West Virginia Independence Hall in Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia). The Restored Government was recognized by the Union, including President Lincoln (Abraham Lincoln), as the State of Virginia with its capital in Wheeling. In part motivated by early Union successes, including the Battle of Philippi Races, it was preceded by the Clarksburg Convention and led to the Constitutional Convention (Constitutional convention (political meeting)) of West Virginia. He made frequent appearances on the Louisiana Hayride and Wheeling, West Virginia's WWVA Jamboree (renamed Jamboree U.S.A. in the 1960s), as well as the Grand Ole Opry, but was never invited to join the latter. '''WesBanco Arena''' (originally '''Wheeling Civic Center''') is a multi-purpose arena, in Wheeling, West Virginia. It was built in 1977 at a cost of $ (United States dollar)7 million. It is home to the Wheeling Nailers ice hockey team and the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference wrestling tournament. After Sen. Joseph McCarthy publicized this in his 1950 speech in Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia), West Virginia, she was dismissed. The Keeneys refused to answer questions regarding membership in the Communist Party. In 1952, they were convicted on contempt of Congress (United States Congress) for refusing to answer questions before a Senate (United States Senate) committee, though their convictions were later reversed on appeal. In 1999 the school was forced to play a year of games split between Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia), Charleston (Charleston, West Virginia), and the gym at nearby Fairmont State University due to asbestos removal. *West Liberty, WV (West Liberty, West Virginia) - WGLZ, West Liberty University *Wheeling, WV (Wheeling, West Virginia) - Cardinal.FM, Wheeling Jesuit University - After the FCC's ''Sixth Report and Order'' ended the license freeze and opened the UHF band in 1952, it devised a plan for allocating VHF licenses. Under this plan, almost all of the country would be able to receive two commercial VHF channels plus one noncommercial channel. Most of the rest of the country ("1 2") would be able to receive a third VHF channel. Other areas would be designated as "UHF islands" since they were too close to larger cities for VHF service. The "2" networks became CBS and NBC, "+1" represented non-commercial educational stations, and "1 2" became ABC (which was the weakest network usually winding up with the UHF allocation where no VHF was available). However, Erie and Youngstown, Ohio were both sandwiched between Pittsburgh and Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia) Steubenville to the south, Cleveland to the west, Buffalo (Buffalo, New York) to the east, and London, Ontario to the north. This created a large "doughnut" in Northwestern Pennsylvania where there could only be one VHF license. WICU was fortunate to gain that license, and as a result has been the market leader in Erie for most of its history. Channel 12 held a monopoly on Erie television until WSEE-TV signed-on in 1954 as a CBS affiliate. The then-two separately owned stations aired ABC programs until WJET-TV (channel 24) signed-on in 1966. "The later turnpike was planned and constructed by Virginia partly as a result of the rival activities of New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland to secure the advantage in transportation facilities for the trade of the West; and was especially regarded as a rival of the National Road which was opened from Cumberland (Cumberland, Maryland) to Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia) in 1818, and with which parts of Virginia obtained better connection in 1830 by a stage line established from Winchester to Cumberland. It was built across the Appalachian Divide with the hope of securing commercial superiority, and was the main thoroughfare between East and West through northern Virginia." The '''Ohio Valley Greyhounds''' were a professional indoor football (indoor American football) team. They began play in 1999 as the '''Steel Valley Smash''', a charter member of the IFL (Indoor Football League). After the league folded, they moved to the NIFL (National Indoor Football League), became a charter member, and renamed themselves as the Ohio Valley Greyhounds. After four successful years in the league, they moved to the UIF (United Indoor Football) in 2005 and became a charter member to the new league. However, the Greyhounds failed to reach the same level of success from the NIFL years. Their home games were played at the WesBanco Arena in Wheeling, West Virginia, which is also the home to the ECHL's Wheeling Nailers. After three dismal years in the UIF, the team folded in October 2007. http: www.wtrf.com story.cfm?func viewstory&storyid 30248&catid 3 airdate October 24, 1953 location Wheeling, West Virginia Steubenville, Ohio callsign_meaning '''T'''wo '''R'''adio '''F'''requencies (referring to AM and FM stations with same calls) '''WTRF-TV''' is the CBS-affiliated television station for the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia and the Allegheny Plateau of Eastern Ohio that is licensed to Wheeling, West Virginia.

Television * Argent appeared in the ''Teen Titans (Teen Titans (TV series))'' episode "Calling All Titans" voiced by Hynden Walch. She meets Starfire (Starfire (comics)) and becomes an honorary Titan, but she is soon captured by General Immortus of the Brotherhood of Evil. Argent can fire crimson energy beams, and can use that energy to form objects similar to the abilities of the Green Lantern. The Argent in this series appears to be a New Zealander rather than an American (United States). Argent has also been shown to have an interest in fashion when she asks Starfire: "''Does this come in black?''" when the yellow communicator clashes with her dark clothes. When Más y Menos unfreeze all of the captured Titans during the final battle of "Titans Together", Argent joins the fight. She is seen sending two energy beams in the form of hands after a fleeing Johnny Rancid (List of minor characters in the Teen Titans animated series#Johnny Rancid). Later, she is seen in Titans Tower and before the "battle" against Dr. Light (Doctor Light (Arthur Light)).
