New home dedicated for Clarksville police

South Boston News
Clarksville Mayor Kevin Allgood, interim town manager Charles Lee and Police Chief Ricky Wilkinson on Thursday cut the ribbon at the dedication and opening of Clarksville’s new police station. The building is the first upgrade the Clarksville Police Department has experienced with their facilities in more than 27 years. Wilkinson thanked Lee for spearheading the drive to get a new home for Clarksville’s Police Department — one that has the technological capabilities needed by a modern police force. He also thanked the town for their support of his Department and the men who serve.

A County Divided

South Boston News
Under a Republican election map introduced Monday in the General Assembly, Mecklenburg County would be divided into two state Senate districts, including a minority-majority district stretching from Danville to Petersburg to Sussex (outlined in red). The district would include South Hill but not Chase City and Clarksville, which would land in the new 19th district (in green) represented by Clarksville Republican Frank Ruff. Ruff would also represent the northern half of Halifax County, a portion of Danville, all of Martinsville and parts of Henry and Chesterfield counties. Virginia Democrats immediately attacked the plan as unconstitutional, and Gov. Bob McDonnell said it was “not a good way to do business.” The proposal must pass the House and gain the Governor’s signature to become laws. The new districts would go in effect with the 2015 Virginia Senate elections.
