On the morning of July 11, crews were dispatched for a motor vehicle rollover on Interstate 77 at the 41 mile marker. This vehicle was carrying a paint additive that is not classified as a Federal DOT regulation hazardous material.

The product moved into a drainage ditch and along a creek in the Chapman Road area of Wytheville. Crews have been working since 3 a.m. and continue to work to contain and clean up the product.

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality is on scene as well as a state hazardous material officer. Clean up crews will continue to work to clean these areas.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you have any questions, please contact Curtis Crawford at 276-223-4521.

WYTHEVILLE, Va. – The spring Shape Up Wythe Sheffey programs finished up with excellent results for participants.

Carolanne Shockley took part in this year’s program.

“It’s an excellent program with certified instructors and trainers,” Shockley said. “I loved the program. I’m very proud of how they have started it from the ground up. I had a great nutritionist.”

The twelve week program provides students with three days per week of exercise and nutrition education. The program concluded in June with a revealing of assessments and a healthy dinner for participants. The spring program included two classes, Shape Up Wythe Sheffey and Shape Up Step Two.

“It’s a free program funded by the Wythe-Bland Foundation,” Wythe County Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Williams said. “Several organizations make this program happen: Jinger Covert and A Step Above Concepts, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Heartland Rehab Services and the Virginia Department of Health.”

Within the two classes, 27 people participated and lost a total of 159 inches and 111 pounds.

The program is held at the Sheffey Community Gym. Williams said a fall session is starting after Labor Day. For more information about the program please contact Williams at 276-223-4519.
