If these faces look familiar it's because after 17 years, they still look the same. This is an advertisement in the 1999-2000 Bridgeport High School Ki-Cu-Wa Yearbook that show BHS alumni working at WDTV. From left, front rown, is Cassie (Ramsey) Busdeker and Jody Hinkle, while Alan Dye is shown in the background.
In 1989 the historic Philippi Covered Bridge was laid waste by a fire. The landmark dating back to the Civil War has since been restored and is a tourist attraction for Barbour County and the entire region.
