The City of Henderson is currently soliciting applications for persons interested in serving on:
We’re still waiting for those Letters to the Editor to pour in. Maybe when our council-folk and commissioners realize what a great way Home in Henderson is to get their message out, they’ll send their letters to email@example.com. Summer school is halfway over today, and we’re looking forward to the Relay for Life tonight! See you there!

We would have given anything (except our paying job) to have attended the Human Resources Committee meeting yesterday. If anyone has any insight into what happened, please be sure to let us know. We apologize for the gap in service yesterday. Someone forgot to put money in the meter. There’s lots to talk about, so we won’t even attempt to steer the conversation. En garde!
During the committee reports portion of Monday’s Henderson City Council meeting, council member Mary Emma Evans expressed a desire to come back to the council with a proposal to raise the salary of city council members.
The Human Resources Committee will meet today at 9:oo a.m. at City Hall. We truly wish we could cover this meeting, as the pay raise for council members broached by Mary Emma Evans at Monday’s council meeting will be the topic of conversation.

Send your musings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This evening’s Henderson City Council meeting could promise fireworks.

The Vance County Board of Commissioners will meet in their chambers in the old courthouse at 6:00 p.m. for another budget work session. Lastly, the Henderson City Council will meet in chambers at City Hall at 7:00 p.m. this evening. Does this all have to happen at the …
All Vance County Board of Commissioners except Eddie Wright were present at a Thursday evening work session to discuss the fiscal 2007 budget.
