Hollywood comes to Halifax

To the editor:

You are cordially invited to a red carpet event for the special preview showing of the new documentary “Hot Water” on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Halifax County High School auditorium.  

Liz Rogers, the producer, will introduce her dramatic documentary film, and she is bringing her film crew to add a segment on our uranium mining fight right here in Virginia.  

This riveting film graphically exposes the uranium mining industry in a shocking way — it will make you fighting mad — it will make you want to do something about it.  

So, come see this provocative film and meet the Hollywood producer.  Let’s show the world how strongly we oppose uranium mining — let’s fill all 1,000 seats.  

All regional groups fighting uranium mining and all major donors will be recognized at the event.

As you know, we were able to turn back VUI in the last General Assembly session — but rest assured they have not gone away; in fact, VUI has ramped up its efforts. 

Daughter Sarah and Liz have become very good e-mail/phone pals, and when Sarah contacted her, she was ecstatic about visiting with us and including us in this documentary.  

We have definitely found a new friend. So, y’all come. Let’s welcome Hollywood to Halifax — with real southern hospitality.

This event is sponsored by We The People of Virginia and co-sponsored by the Roanoke River Basin Association, Virginia chapter of the Sierra Club, Keep the Ban, The Virginia Coalition, PRIDE and others.

See you there, 

Jack and Sarah



Very close to electric company

To the editor:

I read with great interest the articles concerning REA electric service. The development has been accomplished by the courage and determination of dedicated people. 

The problems were many and you would not accept no for an answer.

I feel very close with your company, as I spent 35 years with another electric company. Being around linemen, servicemen and etc., all the people were nice. My idea, give everyone a chance. Learn all you can, then the job is done quicker, cheaper, better and safer. 

 Good luck and keep the wind at your back.

There is always a better way. Find it.

I have wondered what 100 percent from everyone would produce.
