Library to screen film

WELLSBURG - The Brooke County Public Library will be showing the PG-13-rated film "Source Code," starring Jake Gyllenhaal, at 1 p.m. Tuesday.

When Capt. Colter Stevens awakes in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he's part of an experimental government program that enables him to cross over into another man's identity in the last eight minutes of his life.
