Warfare, real and imagined

The Marines will be making touchdown Saturday at South Boston Speedway and the Halifax County Fairgrounds, part of a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) urban training exercise to prepare for tasks ranging from combat operations to search-and-rescue missions.

Going long

In the aftermath of South Hill’s stunningly successful Dixie World Series hosting experience and championship run by the All-Star Belles, it might just be time to update the town slogan from “You’ll Like the View From South Hill” to something more timely.

Doing it his way

Who could have guessed the tenure of Superintendent of Schools Paul Stapleton would draw close to the end not with a bang or a whimper but a reorganization?

Weaving a better welcome mat

It’s been a bang-up summer around Mecklenburg County, what with the Dixie World Series unfolding this week in South Hill and one of the better Lakefest celebrations in memory taking place in Clarksville several weeks ago. Plus, there’ve been a bunch of other events going on that are too numerous to mention here. One question: Can these bursts of activity sustain the local economy, or are they one-off deals? Is it really true what they say — that one-time exposure creates lasting value?

Tuning out

Gotta say, the news of the world is either terminally dull or numbingly dreary, and no one in his right mind — least of all a newspaper columnist guilty of inflicting his fair share of these same miseries — could blame the masses for choosing to tune out. This week’s excitements include Rupert Murdoch doing his senile act before a Parliamentary inquisition into the crimes of his news organization and the little ones in Washington, DC fighting again in their sandbox, plus it’s gosh-darn blazes hot outside and Al Gore is still fat. What’s a pundit to do?

People power

You know the weather has gone haywire when the hottest stretch of the year is supposed to fall on the weekend AFTER Lakefest.
