I STATION PLACE REPAIRS
WE'RE TRACKING PUBLIC MONEY AND HOW ITS BEING USED.
IN THIS REPORT WE'RE FOCUSING ON A HISTORIC BUILDING ON CHARLESTON'S SOUTH SIDE.
EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER KENNIE BASS HAS THE DETAILS.
STATION PLACE REPAIRS
One of those was to Station Place on MacCorkle Avenue at the foot of the Southside Bridge.
Built in 1905, Station Place is one of Charleston's most storied structures. But the building is definitely showing its age. Its owners receivd $30,713 in grant money, which they have to match, to assist with roof repair, the painting of gutters, soffits downspouts and window trim.
Although Station Place is privately owned, Brad Rowe of General Corporation says the grant will help defray some of the costs incurred while dealing with a historic structure and allow more work to be done.
He says Station Place is a gateway to the Capital City that should be protected.
Brad Rowe/General Corporation: It's important to preserve the historical properties so that future generations can enjoy them. When you talk about this building in particular this building was built in 1905 by the railroad. And if you look at the history of the rail industry in West Virginia that coincides with the history and the growth of the coal industry so I certainly think its significant. And what a lot of people don't realize it's actually an operating train station today. Amtrak runs three times a week out of here. So this building is the first thing people see when they get off the train.
Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: Rowe says the repair work at Station Place should be finished by this fall.
And now we want to know what you think. Is the $30,000 grant awarded to Station Place money that is being well spent? Or should the owners have paid for the repairs solely by themselves. Log onto our Facebook page and join in on the conversation.

SOCIAL IMPACT BUMP
INTRO SOCIAL IMPACT
FROM SUN UP TO SUNDDOWN, THEY ARE TURNING TO TECHNOLOGY AS THEIR PRIMARY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.
EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER DARRAH WILCOX RECENTLY SAT DOWN WITH A GROUP OF TEENS AT HUNTINGTON HIGH SCHOOL FOR AN OPEN DISCUSSION ABOUT SOCIAL NETWORKING... TO FIND OUT HOW THEY USE IT... AND FOR HOW LONG.
When I wake up, I generally check Twitter.
FROM THE MOMENT THEY GO TO BED
What did you miss in your sleep?
TO THE MOMENT THEY WAKE UP....TEENAGERS LIKE LUKE COOLEY SAY THEY ARE CONSTANTLY STRIVING TO STAY CONNECTED THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA.
Whenever I have free time I just check it. A lot. NATS laughter
AND LUKE ISN'T ALONE.WE SAT DOWN WITH HIM AND HIS PEERS TO TRY AND GAUGE JUST HOW DEPENDENT THE AVERAGE TEENAGER IS ON APPLICATIONS LIKE TWITTER AND FACEBOOK..AND WHY?
DEW: From wake-up to go to sleep. What are you on Facebook for?
I'm mostly just checking who I'm friends with is just posting and stuff. I usually just ignore a lot of it.
DEW: In the last year would you say you've ever gone a day without checking social media?
If I'm like camping or something!
TEENS SAY THEY FEEL DISCONNECTED WITHOUT IT.
Do you all remember a world where Facebook and Twitter and all these things didn't exist? Brianna- Yeah when we had Myspace! Laughter
THESE DAYS IT'S NOT JUST FACEBOOK AND TWITTER. INSTAGRAM, PINTEREST, VINE, TUMBLR AND SNAPCHAT ARE ALL OUTLETS TO STAY SOCIALLY NETWORKED.
DEW:Why do you think we live in a world who has to be so connected?
"It's just like a habit now. You can't exactly just stop it."
"I don't think it's like at the point where you can just stop now. It's only going to progress."
"Yeah I think we've gotten used to having everything at our fingertips in such a short amount of time and without it we wouldn't know what to do."
WHAT ARE YOU TWEETING ABOUT? ON AVERAGE... 100,000 TWEETS ARE SENT EACH MINUTE... BUT ACCORDING TO THESE TEENS...
"It's usually pretty pointless
"Yeah if I looked back at all my Tweets they could easily go without it."
GRX on time spent online
BUT TIME SPENT ON THOSE "POINTLESS" POSTS AND PICS AND TWEETS... CERTAINLY ADD UP.
Luke Cooley /
I'd say about three maybe. Laughter. Is that a lot? Yes! Alright... um an hour and forty-five minutes!
ACCORDING TO SOCIALLY ACTIVE DOT COM, 70% OF young adults spend almost 17 hours a week online.
ALLTWITTER SHOWS NEARLY 700,THOUSAND PIECES OF FACEBOOK CONTENT SHARED EACH MINUTE.
AND OF COURSE THERE ARE PITFALLS. NEARLY HALF OF ALL TEENS ON SOCIAL NETWORKS ADMIT TO BEING CYBERBULLIED.
A lot of times I just read by it. Scroll by it. You don't really do anything about it. You just see it.
BUT WHAT STARTS OUT AS JUST A SIMPLE COMMENT OR PICTURE... CAN QUICKLY TURN VIRAL.
"People can take screen shots of it. Someone's always going to find out about it."
AND... IT CAN HAVE DEADLY CONSEQUENCES.
"She was sweet and she was kind"
AUDRIE POTT WAS A CALIFORNIA TEENAGER WHO WAS REPORTEDLY RAPED BY THREE TEEN BOYS, WHO ALLEGEDLY POSTED PICTURES OF THE INCIDENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
POTT COMMITTED SUICIDE A WEEK LATER.
"She's missed every day."
SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK YOUR KIDS QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR SOCIAL NETWORKING LIFE.
"You should also make your child feel comfortable enough so that they can come to you if they see something that they don't like or someone's talking to them in a way they don't like because often people aren't going to find out about it.
WHILE THERE IS A VERY DARK SIDE TO SOCIAL MEDIA, TEENS ALSO KNOW THERE ARE PERKS TO POSTING
"Knowing that I was applying to some art schools I was like well if they do check it and I post some of my art on here then that might be cool."
A COMMON HASHTAG CAN UNITE COMMUNITIES AND EVEN THE COUNTRY.
SO, WHILE YOU ARE TWEETING, POSTING AND LIKING AWAY THE MINUTES EACH DAY... DON'T FORGET THE WORLD WIDE WEB DOESN'T HAVE TO BE YOUR WHOLE WORLD.
PARENTS CAN ALSO BE PROACTIVE WHEN IT COMES TO COMMUNICATING WITH KID ABOUT SOCIAL NETWORKING.
G EXPERT ADVISE
ALSO- BE OPEN. THE GROUP WE SAT DOWN WITH SAY THEY ARE LISTENING TO THEIR PARENTS! SO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES FROM SOCIAL MEDIA.
REMIND THEM NOT TO SHARE TOO MUCH... WHETHER IT'S A PICTURE, PERSONAL INFORMATION, OR LOCATION-BASED SERVICES.
TWO out of the train EARLY THIS MORNING.... It's believed the train was carrying ethanol, SO A hazmat team was scent to the scene... NO WORD YET ON HOW THOSE ENGINEERS ARE DOING TONIGHT...

ON CAPITOL HILL
OBAMACARE BY IRS
SARA HALL INGRAM, THE SAME EXECUTIVE THAT WAS IN CHARGE OF THE TAX-EXEMPT OFFICE UNDER SCRUTINY FOR TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS -- IS NOW RESPONSIBLE FOR ENFORCING DOZENS OF NEW HEALTH CARE LAWS.
HERE'S NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT KRISTINE FRAZAO WITH MORE.
WE DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH SARAH HALL INGRAM KNEW ABOUT THE TARGETNG WHILE SERVING AS COMMISSIONER OF THE I-R-S FIELD OFFICE IN CINCINNATI.
THE SAME OFFICE UNDER INTENSE SCRUTINY AND CONGRESSIONAL REVIEW.
INGRAM NOW OVERSEES THE IRS' AFFORDABLE CARE ACT OFFICE TASKED WITH ENFORCING HEALTH CARE LAWS. AMONG THEM --DECIDING WHICH BUSINESS OR INDIVIDUAL GETS A TAX BREAK.

DAVE SWARTZ IS WITH 'AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY.' A GRASSROOTS GROUP THAT WAS NOT TARGETED BY THE IRS.
SOT IN 9:43:05 "She can not be the person that implements our health care. I don't think the public trust is there for that to happen."
[WILL SEE IF I CAN FIND NEWSOURCE VIDEO OF PFEIFFER]
SENIOR WHITE HOUSE ADVISOR DAVID PFEIFFER DEFENDED INGRAM SAYING SHE HAS DONE NOTHING WRONG.
[CAN YOU LAYER IN 56 PERCENT]
A NEW WASHINGTON POST/ABC POLL FOUND THAT 56 PERCENT OF AMERICANS BELIEVE THE IRS WAS DELIBERATELY INTRUSIVE OF TEA PARTY GROUPS.
SOT IN 9:17:38 "Confidence in government has become an oxymoron, trust in government has become an oxymoron. We are at a almost a historic low in terms of the level of trust the average American places in government entities."
AND WITH THE SAME I-R-S EXECUTIVE NOW IN CHARGE OF SOMETHING AS PERSONAL HEALTH CARE -- WELL, THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION'S MICHAEL FRANC SAYS IT WILL GIVE RISE TO YET, ANOTHER LEVEL OF DISTRUST.
SOT IN HOW MUCH ACCESS WILL THE IRS HAVE TO OUR MEDICAL HISTORY? CONSIDER THAT JUST THIS WEEK, A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT WAS FILED AGAINST THE IRS FOR, ACCORDING TO THE SUIT, STEALING THE MEDICAL RECORDS OF ROUGHLY TEN MILLION PEOPLE.
IN 8:58:38 "When government abuses power it effects us more personally and can upset our lives even more."
HOW MUCH MORE?
SOT 9:42:50 "God forbid somebody needs emergency surgery and their birthday is on September 12, 9/12 or they have a patriotic name -- they might be waiting for that surgery for a while."
A JOKE - BUT FOR GRASS ROOTS ORGANIZATIONS ONE THAT HITS TOO CLOSE TO HOME.

THOSE PATIENTS WHO REGAINED SOME OF THEIR WEIGHT.. HAD THEIR GERD COME BACK MORE FREQUENTLY..
