Wild kingdom

Seems to me we didn’t have so many wild critters to contend with in Halifax County when I was growing up down U.S. 501.

Individual honor

Some very interesting observations were made this past weekend during the various Veterans Day observances around the area.


Quick, raise your hands, have you been as annoyed and agitated as I have been with the slew of automated phone calls and brochures in the mail promoting one presidential candidate or another?

Former South Dakota Senator and 1972 presidential candidate George McGovern died Sunday at the age of 90.

The forgotten holiday

We’re at the time of year where time goes fast, what with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas upon us already.

George Santayana, the noted Spanish-born American philosopher, once said, “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
