IN THIS ISSUE...
WHEELING AND THE LAW
Since its earliest days, Wheeling has made a sizeable contribution to law. INWheeling explores twelve legal cases and regulations which have set significant national legal precedent, caught the attention of the national media, or both. This in depth article, our largest to date, spans from the 1849 landmark Wheeling and Belmont Bridge Company case all the way to present day cases. The article celebrates the impact of Wheeling’s legal community and will serve as a valuable synopsis of our city’s role in defining the law of the land.
AN ENEMY WITHIN
Most of us are familiar with the dark period of political paranoia in the 1950’s that was spearheaded by Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. However, few of us know that the short lived but high impact movement had its roots in a speech the senator made in Wheeling. Guest contributor David Javersak sheds light on this dark era of our national history, and Wheeling’s unsuspecting role in it.
YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD COPS
We’ve all seen them around town, but few of us know them in person. Wheeling’s police force is a diverse body of trained professionals that are doing much more than writing parking tickets. From serving in elementary schools to educating the public about safe driving to checking for explosives, the city’s police take on more of a proactive role in keeping the city safe and sane than you would ever guess. In this photo editorial, INWheeling introduces you to some of your best friends whom previously you might not have known.
