Nitro Lake to Allow Boats for First Time

A lake in Nitro will be allowed to have boats for the first time. Residents actually asked for it, and went all the way to the state legislature for the okay to put boats on Ridenour Lake. With the approval now, boats will be allowed on the lake for a fee, and only small boats like kayaks, canoes, and small john boats will be allowed. WCHS TV reports the mayor anticipates everything will be ready by July 1, just in time for the big 4th of July holiday.
