Light winter dusting

South Boston News
Much of Halifax County woke up Sunday to find a light coat of snow on the ground after flurries started coming down Saturday around 10 p.m. The accumulation wasn’t nearly enough to create problems on the roads, but it did leave early risers with the task of clearing the ice and snow off their car windshields.

Praying for the community

South Boston News
People gathered at the North Main Street playground basketball court on a chilly late Saturday afternoon to participate in a candlelight prayer vigil for the community. The event brought together parishioners and representatives of six local churches who prayed for better economic times, safer streets, more educational opportunities, the well-being of America’s armed forces and brighter days ahead for those struggling with personal hardships. Speakers injected a special note of concern for the North Main Street community. Religious leaders who spoke at the vigil included Pastor Brandon Smith of Mt. Olive Baptist Church; Ernest Vass, a deacon at Mt. Olive (seen addressing the crowd in the photo below); Evangelist Lillie Hunt of Mayfield Apostolic Church; Pastor Ed Riggs of Main Street United Methodist Church; Pastor Richard Terry of Memorial Baptist Church; Pastor Keith Mitchell of Wesley Chapel CME Church; Sherry Cowen, missionary with Mt. Olive Baptist Church and principal of Clays Mill Elementary; and Pastor Andrew Williamson of Ebenezer CME Church.
