BreakDown: Danville School Board (4/16/15) – Part #1

You might say “How can you have a BreakDown article when you haven’t even covered Thursday night’s Danville School Board work session?” I’ll answer you by saying “Why don’t we do both at once?”

This was a very interesting meeting. Let’s get the first part of it done now.


Never Let A “Crisis” Go To Waste

Danville’s local Coca-Cola sales staff wants extra sales and there’s nothing wrong with that. So “Have a Coke and a AAAAAIIIIEEEEE!!!!!!!!!” Heh.

PhotoCentral: Inside CAPSTONE (Part #2)

Let’s finish up our PhotoCentral tour inside the new CAPSTONE project at the Institute for Advanced Learning & Research. There are millions of dollars that’s been put into this project and it will produce a workforce with the skills that industries want.


PhotoCentral: Inside CAPSTONE (Part #1)

Today, the Institute of Advanced Learning & Research showed off their new CAPSTONE project. This is a project that will train people to use highly technical machinery. The belief is that once a sizable workforce is trained, industries will want to locate their new factories in the Southside region. Today, we’ll going to take a […]

Crazy Coalash Crusader Cardiologist Conspiracy Crap

There’s a reason that Danville Vice-Mayor Gary Miller didn’t invite SouthsideCentral along on his Wednesday river expedition. I’d have told him that he was a conspiracy-spouting nutball who should know better than to spread unsubstantiated theories that stupid people will actually believe.


The Lies Of Norhurst

On Sunday, the Danville Register & Bee ran a feature article about Norhurst, Inc. It was a trainwreck because Tim Norton lied to Vicky Morrison (the reporter) and she didn’t challenge him on it.

Let’s take a look at what went wrong.


Danville Utilities: Opportunities & Threats

In our last article, we showed you what the Danville Utilities Steering committee came up with regarding strengths and weaknesses of the business. Now, we’ll finish up this meeting by looking at their boards of Opportunities and Threats.

TROTS: The Security Camera That Isn’t

We guessed wrong.

For only the second time in SouthsideCentral history, I’m putting an article in the “Errors & Omissions” category. Thanks to some great City of Danville folks, we’ve gotten the full story on the security camera on Main St. Let’s look at “The Rest Of The Story”…


Utilities Steering Committee – LIVE! (3/16/15)

We’re LIVE! at Danville’s City Hall for today’s Utilities Steering Commission meeting. We’ve got some photos from the meeting here, but we’re going to do separate articles on the results since we have 11 pages of results from the brainstorming. We’ll keep this article published since it’s already been indexed and the newspaper didn’t send […]

They’re Watching You!

I think I’ve found the City of Danville’s newest security camera… and they didn’t make it easy to find, either.

Danville City Council (2/17/2015)

You’ll notice that the headline doesn’t say “LIVE!” and that’s because I believe it’s potentially unsafe to hold tonight’s regularly scheduled meeting and I’m not going. I’ll just tell you what will happen so you can protest with me by staying at home like they should have done.
