Area Youths 'Above the Influence'

After a month of hard work, a group of Ohio Valley kids have an important message to share, and they've been working with adults to put on a street youth forum on Wednesday.

Aimed at prevention, the forum will be filled with activities, interactive stations and a video that will show the dangers of substance abuse. There will also be "above the influence" T-shirts that teens can spray paint and make their own.

Leaders of the youth group hope the forum will give kids a better understanding of the affects and dangers of drugs and alcohol.

The forum on Wednesday is open to the public from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Laughlin Chapel in Wheeling. It is free for everyone but please call Alyson Hehr at 304-233-2045 if you are planning on coming tomorrow to ensure there will be enough activities and t-shirts for everyone.
