one of every five West Virginians is poor, including a lot of people's
attendants. This year's Kids Count Databook compiled a list of
opportunities and services from which poor families are often excluded.
Inspired by the Kids Count report, five Gazette writers picked one topic
each - banking, transportation, computers, education and recreation - to
explore in coming weeks in the Gazette's Community section.
This week, staff writer Susan Williams explores the trials of working
people in search of a simple checking account.
