Danville City Council – LIVE! (9/20/16)

We’ve got the bugs (hopefully) worked out of our new SouthsideCentral system and we’re going to try it again at tonight’s Danville City Council meeting. We’ll be LIVE! at the meeting, so refresh this page often for the latest photos, happenings and commentary. Be sure to check our SouthsideCentral Facebook page for Facebook Live videos.


Danville City Council – LIVE! (9/6/16)

(Editor’s Note: A new phone, a new version of WordPress on the phone, incompatible settings on the website, photos archived to somewhere that I can’t find and a Facebook Live attempt that looked like Amateur Hour. That’s the reason that this article is a complete mess. On Wednesday night, I’ll start rebuilding this article from […]

BREAKING: EcomNets head pleads guilty to visa fraud charges

Hey, Your Ice Cream Is Bitter!

So you’re a small business owner that now has three ice cream shops in the area (up from one this time last year). What’s the best thing that you can do when a new specialty ice cream shop opens in Danville?

The wrong answer is “Bash them on your own business Facebook page”.

Danville City Council – LIVE? (7/19/16)

Yep, you read that right. It’s LIVE with a question mark, because tonight’s meeting is quite void of “hot” or interesting content. These types of meeting happen around this time of the year. So, I’m seriously considering passing on going to the meeting.

But don’t worry, I’m going to tell you everything that will happen. […]

Let’s get back in the saddle again (after being shot off of my horse) with a semi-detailed recap of what’s happened at three local government meetings this week.

Let’s take […]

Danville School Board (7/7/16)

SouthsideCentral didn’t cover Thursday’s Danville School Board meeting LIVE! but we were there.

SouthsideCentral was the only media source to project a change in the chair & vice-chair of the school board… […]

Danville City Council – LIVE! (6/21/16)

SouthsideCentral was LIVE! at the dam Danville City Council meeting on Tuesday night. This article is now complete, so enjoy the recap!


SouthsideCentral’s Dam Opinion

The discussion about what to do with Danville’s dam at the old White Mill location has been blown way out of proportion by a lot of people. On Tuesday night, Danville City Council will vote on a resolution authorizing the demolition of the dam.

SouthsideCentral strongly urges a “No” vote on this resolution and asks […]

Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Ben Davenport?

I’m not, but other people are because they won’t mention his name in the latest dam conspiracy theories.

Oh yeah, those conspiracy theories are horsecrap.
