Welcome to the jungle

That old-time feeling

So now we’re talking about replacing Halifax County High School?

Fall harmony

It remains to be seen how the Mecklenburg County School Board and Board of Supervisors will resolve their differences over how to structure Mecklenburg County’s secondary schools — one big high school/middle school complex or two smaller ones? — but the first rule when trying to track down answers is to “follow the money.”

Coming home to roost

There are a million ways you can dissect Donald Trump’s disastrous debate performance Monday night.

Making book

It was quite a nice surprise to pick up the Halifax County Historical Society’s new book, “An Architectural History of Halifax County, Virginia“ and see our family’s South Boston residence listed on page 256: “The West-McLaughlin home.” Never heard it referred to that way before; wow. It reminded me of the moment in the Charlie Brown Christmas Special when Pig-Pen tells Lucy Van Pelt to show some respect because that could be the dirt of Nebuchudnezzar swirling around his person. Even our beagles are impressed. They’ve used the bathroom indoors only once this week.

Moment of truth

It’s hard to believe sometimes, but Mecklenburg County appears to be finally ready to move forward with the construction of new schools — provided that the powers-that-be don’t screw everything up.

Back to the race

It’s been awhile since we checked in on the presidential race. Maybe now might be a good time? We are past Labor Day, after all.

Tales from flyover country

It’s always great fun whenever The New York Times or some other bigfoot media operation sends a reporter down from the big city to check out life in the local honey hole.

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?

The fire this time

Lately I’ve fallen into the habit of making references to the summertime heat every time I ramble on in this space.
