  • Where our priorities lie, part 2

  • Where our priorities lie

    It was great to see so many animal advocates turn out at last Wednesday’s meeting of the Chesterfield County Council. People in Chesterfield County and many from as far away places as New York attended the meeting to voice their concerns over the conditions at the county animal shelter and about the alleged dog shooting incident that occurred there in March.
    The heart of the matter is that nearly everyone who spoke did so advocating spay and neuter laws that would help control the animal population and help quell the problem at its source.

  • EDITORIAL: Tucker's innovation pays off in jobs

  • Sensationalism out of control

     To the Editor: Enough!

    We as a community have allowed and invited enough silliness into our lives. No more Channel 9 Eyewitness BADnews. No more slack-tivists protesting. How about some common sense? How about we rely on a gentleman who has proven his worth as Sheriff time and again? How about we rely on ourselves as a community to solve this community problem without extra-state interference?
