Castle in the sand

Members of the Halifax County Board of Supervisors, County Administrator Jim Halasz, the county attorney and others have worked very hard to shape the future of the Halifax County Courthouse, drawing up a modernization plan for the building that brings years of back-and-forth negotiations with a restive judiciary to an end. But will it fly with the public?

Compare and contrast

When we last touched base with the Mecklenburg County Republican Party — in this space last week, as a matter of fact — the joke was on our neighbors to the east. Why?

If the song got it right and freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose, then Virgil Goode is truly the most liberated politician in America.
