Skaters get $10,000 closer to a skate park

Marlinton – “There’s nothing to do in the northern part of the county.” Those are the words of one Durbin teenager trying to get a skateboard park built on an old tennis court at Widney Park, near Durbin. The young skaters are getting close to their goal, after Tuesday night’s meeting of the Parks and Recreation board.
