Pick of the day: Keeping up appearances

The City Council made several routine appointments to commissions in its spare time Monday night, including keeping Joseph Mahaffey on the Henderson-Vance-Oxford-Granville Airport Authority, Bennett Perry on the library board of trustees and Kevin Boone on the Recreation Commission and adding Martha Zollicoffer to the library board. Celester Clark received a reappointment to the Henderson Community Appearance Commission as well, but four vacancies on that commission went unfilled because no one applied. The Clean Up Henderson Committee shows that people care about removing the ugliness in the city. Don’t people also care about enhancing the beauty?
