TossUp!: “We give up” or “You pay up”?

Thumbs! (3/27/14)

The red zone is for unloading only. The white zone is for Thumbs! Let’s see what we have today…

Thine Holy Nuclear Fireball?

“God said Nuke ‘em” was the other headline I was considering using. Anyway, let’s look at a “letter to the editor” that contains a quite bizarre analogy…

It’s not like they were going to use their credit limit anyway…

The Halifax County Industrial Development Authority is only allowed to borrow $6,000,000 for the rest of the year. I’m here to tell you that this will definitely not be a problem in 2014. In other news, furniture coating isn’t really a hot and fabulous attraction. Who knew?

Time Machine: Is he still missing?

Normally when we hop in the SouthsideCentral Time Machine, we go back at least a few years. Not today, kids. We’re going back about two months to a Halifax County missing person search that seems to have gone missing itself…

The man who’s not resigning has resigned.

Earl Womack’s adventure of resigning his job but not resigning his elected position then resigning that one too slipped under my radar for a while. Let’s fix that now…

Endorsement: James Edmunds for 60th District House of Delegates

In the last two elections, James Edmunds has had no competition. In this election, James Edmunds has an opponent but still has no competition.

Endorsement: Fay Satterfield for Halifax County School Board

We’re moving to District 6 in Halifax County where we have one-term incumbent Fay Satterfield and challenger Rita Best campaigning for a four-year term. We’ve made our decision on who we’d vote for if we still lived in the district…

Endorsement: Kim Farson for Halifax County School Board

Halifax County’s current school board chairman, Kim Farson, is running for her second term on the school board. After knocking off a two-term incumbent her first time, this time she’s unopposed.

Tom McLaughlin’s Week Off

This is not to be confused with “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, which is actually entertaining.

Our favorite left-leaning local columnist takes the week off and is promptly replaced by his own Mini-Me.

60th District House Race – Update #2

This really isn’t a race. James Edmunds will win and win big.

The October Surprise that wasn’t.

We now have an “October Surprise” in the Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Race that’s about as bland as a slice of white bread. Of course, WSET’s Heather Rosenbaum is on the story with bad investigative reporting. Let’s take a look at this big chunk of nothing…

Hey John Cannon, Chris Lumsden & Ted Bennett?

If you want $5000 for lobbying purposes, write the damn check yourself instead of trying to get taxpayers’ money. Trust me, you won’t miss it.

This one isn’t going to take long to analyze…

Halifax County’s $60,000 Prizery Question

South Boston/Halifax County’s The Prizery got a no-interest $60,000 loan last year from Halifax County. It’s time to repay the loan and it looks like The Prizery doesn’t have the money.

WOW! Didn’t see that one coming…

A “Growing” Mold Problem…

We touched on this in Saturday’s “Thumbs!” article and we got slammed with stories of people who have gotten sick during this mold problem timeframe at Halifax County High School…

Halifax County Commonwealth Attorney’s Race – Update #1

It’s election season and we’re going to get back into what established SouthsideCentral’s reputation… the political scene. Let’s get started by analyzing the upcoming election for the unexpired portion of former Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Kim White’s term…
