Facebook Trainwreck Spotting!

Everybody just can’t help but look at a big trainwreck!

We get a lot of submissions to our SouthsideCentral email (southsidecentral AT southsidecentral DOT com) and we try to use as many as we can. We’re going to look at a complaint about a local restaurant that quickly devolved into a trainwreck with people making wild defamatory accusations.

BreakDown: The Halifax County Stalemate

BreakDown articles are in-depth articles where I analyze and comment on what’s really happening. They’re opinion based, and I strongly encourage criticism and opposing viewpoints. I’m expecting to ruffle a few feathers on this one.

After going over the latest developments in the Halifax County Board of Supervisors deadlock over naming a new chairman, I’ve connected enough dots to lead me to the cause of this idiotic situation. It’s Doug Bowman.

SponsorCentral: Are you hungry tonight?

We love our SouthsideCentral sponsors. Texas Steakhouse is the place to go tonight (and any night) , and it won’t break your budget.

Check out their menu at their website.

Two of these dinners and an appetizer. All for $22. Seriously.

There’s other choices on the 2 for $22 menu, too… but this is my favorite. Make your way to 2925 Riverside Drive. Tell your server that you saw this on SouthsideCentral and you’ll get a voucher good for a free appetizer on your next visit!

BreakDown: Halifax County’s Board of Jackass Supervisors

In Pittsylvania County, we had a well-deserved shift of power. In Martinsville, we had a surprise change of power. In Halifax County, we had a stubborn Board of Supervisors who set a new record for dysfunctional stupidity. Let’s look at it in this BreakDown…
