It seems to me that the building owner's claim would be against the Dore Company,who caused the damage, not against their own insurance carrier. Knowing that the building shared a common wall was an open invitation to a law suit, and was most likely the reason the building was not sold to the city. The building is worthless except as an insurance loss.

" City Council has yet to decide what it will do with the space as it prepares to market the land for future development. Options include temporary parking, green space or a combination of the two."


Parking for what? For Whom?

Bulldoze the entire town and get it over with.

It won't be long before Wheeling is nothing more than vacant lots and federal government buildings.

Only in government can you put aside $400,000 to plant grass on an empty lot while you try and come up with a plan for said lot.

In the REAL world, you will already have a plan for the lot and you will proceed with all haste to make that plan a reality. Time is money in the real world.

In the world of government, money is a simple computer entry. With no motivation to turn a profit or increase the tax base, what do $100,000 per year Herron and his pals care about your money?

Downtown Wheeling has become a series of vacant lots. Amazing that local government has not developed a plan for attracting business to downtown area. Interesting that a "complete loss" of a building is at $700,000. The town is dead and there is not hope of it coming back. We should vote to disband the city government and be done with it. So many empty building and so little guidance. We don't need gardens downtown (we have Wheeling and Oglebay Parks) we need businesses!

whgfleeing, sounds like you should be worrying about your OWN {bleeping} crib:


Which is the most STRESSED OUT state???

"No. 1: West Virginia. With 47.1 percent of residents reporting stress 'yesterday,' West Virginia has the highest stress level in the nation, according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.

The Mountain State also has the lowest levels of enjoyment and one of the lowest levels of overall well-being. (Wikimedia/Analogue Kid)"

I "feel" sorry for ya, 'Feeling.
