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 look at the labs while they’re still under construction.

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.

Editor’s Note: We’ve updated this article to show the actual email sent out by Mark Warner’s office and the reply sent to people who RSVP’d. You won’t be surprised, folks.

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.

By the way, if you were looking for other local media coverage of this week’s meeting… forget it. No other source covered it (except for Mark Aron and River City TV, but that’s the government channel). Heh. Let’s get to work.

Hee hee. Just a quick one for this edition of RottenReporting. WSET’s reporters may know Southside VA (well sorta once they stay in Southside for more than six months), but their morning news producer in Lynchburg who updates their website is quite clueless.

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.
