Please give them a look in the coming days. We heard that Tony Oakes resigned his position at Southern Vance High School yesterday. What are your thoughts on that? Let us know on today’s open line.

The Public Works Committee is scheduled to meet at 9:00 a.m. at City Hall. The County Commission is scheduled to meet at 6:00 in its chambers in the old courthouse. We’ll be unable to cover today’s meeting, so anyone who would like to post their impressions of the session is invited to do so below. We’re especially interested in the next installment of the zoning debate. With that, the floor is yours.
We wonder if there is a third option to ownership of the library: re-privatization. We understand that the library was once an independent entity. Perhaps it can be again. What are your thoughts? Let them be known on our weekend open line.
