FAIRMONT — As the demolition of the 400 block on Adams Street continues, Fairmont inches closer and closer to the construction of the new state building and the potential for increased job opportunities.

“It’s been a long time coming,” said county administrator Kris Cinalli. “We are excited for the demolition phase and construction to begin.”

The state Department of Administration made the decision to close the old West Virginia State Office Complex on the 100 block of Adams Street in February 2009 due to structural issues. Once Marion County acquired the 400 block of Adams Street, and Fairmont’s Reclaim Inc. won the bid to tear it down, plans for the new state building were able to be put into action.

  • Taste of Heaven ‘A Taste of Heaven’ While undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, 8-year-old Christopher Riley hardly wanted to eat anything. So when he would ask his aunt Rhonda Riley, Fairmont General 3B ward secretary, for a special dessert. She made it gladly.

    She remembers baking things like a pistachio dessert or fudge.

    “What he really liked was my peanut butter fudge,” Riley said. “And when you have a child taking chemotherapy and radiation, you’ll give them anything. And just a little piece of candy just meant the world to him.

    “You do anything, you give them anything they want ... because to tolerate food is unbearable.”
