We are very excited to hear of the two grants that have been awarded to Tyler County. Despite ever-expanding technology and societal advancements in general, West Virginia is still very much behind when it comes to the projects related to these two grants.

In rural West Virginia it is not at all uncommon to meet folks who still rely on dial-up internet service or - more pressing - well water. For folks who utilize well water, the necessity of rain is always at the forefront of one's mind.

The carefree, yet dry, days of summer can turn into days of anxiety, wondering if there is enough water for a simple load of laundry. Swimming pools and car washes are luxuries.

Concerning internet, faster speeds are now more important than ever. Whether one is taking an online college course, or applying for a job online, a stable internet connection is a must-have.

Thus, the news of these two grants makes for a good day in Tyler County. We only hope they are the beginnings of more advancements as we look to build a stronger and better community.
