Hodgesville Elementary's first-graders are thrilled with a visit from the West Virginia University Mountaineer this week. WVU senior Jonathan Kimble serves as this year's Mountaineer mascot, and he is a sports management major from Franklin. Kimble came to visit the class Monday. He also met with Maj. Brian Lundell, who was on leave from service overseas.
