Breakfast Sausage: 5 stories to read today

Happy Monday, Early Returns. 

1. Mark Belko reports on the progress to find a new home for a fish out of water -- the Wholey's fish sign on the side of a Strip District building that's due to be turned into condos.

2. And speaking of water, around 300,000 West Virginians are still unable to drink or bathe in theirs after a chemical spill from a coal processing plant. The Charleston Gazette reports that tests indicated the conditions are improving, but there's still no concrete timeline for when folks can turn on their faucets. 

3. Karen Langley offers a catch-all preview of the state legislature's upcoming session. It includes pensions and liquor sales overhauls -- enough to make a reporter want to drink. 

4. Construction means more traffic headaches in the heart of Downtown. 

5. Another nice piece on "citizen artist" Vanessa German. If you haven't seen her mind-blowing performance from Mayor Bill Peduto's inauguration, check it out here:
