Beckley, WV -- Lynn Collette's Welch home rested uneasily in 16 feet of water this last May; another seven feet of water had visited her last year. Since then, she and her family of five have been getting-by, staying in a motel in Princeton. They were greatly relieved to meet with Gov. Wise this afternoon. He gave them keys to a mobile home in Premier where she and her family can finally call home.
