Next week we’ll get back to fun stories and information about Appalachia. This week, I’m reminding you that you can continue voting for me for Best Author in the Best of West Virginia poll through October 11 (you can vote daily). THANK YOU to everyone who’s already been voting and for everyone else? Here’s hoping you can spare a few minutes to chime in.

P.S. Vote for my friend Dale Hawkins for Best Chef. Because he IS!
