Among various items scheduled for tonight’s city council meeting, Attorney Charles Davis, who has been retained by the Henderson City Council to investigate allegations made by Dennis Tharrington, may make a report to the council.
Forgive us if we’re stating the obvious, but what is the point of going through the time, trouble, and expense of hiring an attorney to get everything out into the open if he’s going to report in secret? If anyone would like to explain what we’re missing, our ears are open. Otherwise, this space is yours. Happy Monday.

This week we have taken it upon ourselves to solicit recipes involving the ubiquitous bird in all forms. Frankly, we’re running out of ideas on how to cook it and serve it, and unlike good beef, it doesn’t cost $8 a pound; at least, not yet.

Bush expands that very …

Legislators were extremely busy in Raleigh all week as we tried to wrap up our remaining work so we can adjourn for the year.
The record for the greatest number of comment posts under a single article is 287 under the article City to park cars for savings posted back in February of this year. The article Rev. Dale arrested for domestic violence, at 239 comment posts at time of writing, seems poised to meet or overtake that number. However one may feel about Dale, his personal life, his methods, or the battles that he chooses, the reaction on Home in Henderson clearly demonstrates …
This week the Corner Kitchen will be focussing on beverages (potent or not), snacks, desserts. As you post your recipe and mix ideas, think cool for the summer!
There are no government meetings of which we are aware, so don’t feel like your missing anything today.
