Museum turns tables on challenge of fund raising

Banister swept up by River Rubbish Rampage

Halifax County school board ups monthly salaries


Comets pick up shut out win over William Campbell





All eyes on the water

Maybe the news isn’t quite as thick as the pollen nowadays, but there’s still plenty of activity out there to sift through. Let’s take a sniff:

Power play

Since snow jobs are on everyone’s mind at the moment, can we go back to state Sen. Frank Ruff’s column on this page last week? Ruff took time out from his busy schedule denying health care to poor people to write about Senate Bill 1349, which also isn’t for poor people. Instead, the legislation is designed to meet the needs of Dominion Virginia Power, which is pretty much the antithesis of poor. Unless you buy what Sen. Ruff is selling, that is.

Checks and imbalances

Last week in this space I mentioned — as an aside — how little I think of James Edmunds’ bill to create a ninth, at-large seat on the Halifax County Board of Supervisors.

Change of pace

It’s welcome change with the Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors to be able to give credit where credit is due — however belatedly.

Gone mad

Following the extreme unpleasantness that raged previously in the evening, at some point late Monday or early Tuesday a feeling of serenity finally pierced the darkness of confusion and doubt.

Against the flow

Quick slant or bull rush up the middle? Either we’re debating the Super Bowl or contemplating the gist of the day’s news.
