Early arrivers get choice seats at W.Va. inaugural

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Some of the best seats for Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's inauguration went to those who arrived early.

Amanda Davis of Lenore and four relatives are getting a front-row view of the celebration Monday at the state Capitol.

Davis' 9-year-old daughter, Olivia Osborne, is performing with the Appalachian Children's Chorus, so she came to watch an inaugural for the first time.

A part-time gas station cashier married to a laid-off coal truck driver, the 38-year-old Davis also hoped to hear Tomblin talk about how to help with her family's biggest need - health care. Davis says government needs to make health care more affordable and easier to obtain.
