Home runs

Maybe it’s just the heat, but the world sure does feel unglued these days.

Twists in the road

A couple of weeks ago, the Halifax County Board of Supervisors convened for a regular monthly meeting and board members refrained from their usual moaning and kvetching. (For the supervisors this year, this seemed like a first.) To the extent any ill will was evident in the room, it mostly arose from the audience. A sore point was the state of the county’s roads. People have a right to complain.

Waiting in the wind

It’s amazing how calm everything seems to get during transitional periods— in Mecklenburg’s case, the pause between Jim Thornton’s departure for Isle of Wight County and the hiring of a new school superintendent to take his place. One suspects the School Board will set aside its fussin’ and fightin’ long enough to quickly lay the groundwork for a new superintendent search (although a School Board meeting this week to consider a consultant had to be cancelled for the lack of a quorum.)
