Superintendent deal was handled badly

Let me preface this column with there are ALWAYS two points of view to every situation.
If there has ever been a time for a governing board to address the public with specific reasoning behind its actions -- the time is now.
The eruption of anger and dissatisfaction regarding the recent decision to indirectly boot out the Nash-Rocky Mount School Superintendent, in my opinion, is mostly due to school board members leaving a huge window open for assumption.

Working for the common good, creating milestones

LIFE, may have been TIME, once devoted a page or two in each issue to Milestones. Dying, having a birthday, or getting married were the most commonly reported milestones.
Getting a driver's license is a milestone. Back in the day, 99 percent of pre-puberty males in Pamlico County knew how to drive a car long before they enrolled in driver's ed. I learned how not to ride the clutch on Burton Farm Road. It was a dirt road then, under the radar of the highway patrol. Boddie-Noel purchased the land and the farm is now Arlington Place. Upscale homes and cottages have replaced tobacco barns.

Nash County could benefit from running of the bulls

Most of us are familiar with the old expression about eating oysters: it was a brave man who first had the idea to taste one. Oh, how he was rewarded. If you ever had steamed oysters or shrimp at the old Atlantis restaurant in Rocky Mount, you know what I mean.
But in contrast, one has to question the man who came up with the running of the bulls in Spain.
You've seen the film footage: a bunch of fools running through what appear to be already quite unsanitary and unsafe streets while being chased by what appear to be a herd of Schlitz Malt Liquor beer bulls.

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

NOT for BOARDING!!
Buddy was surrendered to the Nash County Animal Control Shelter because his owner was going to leave town for a few weeks and wasn't able to board him. In order words, he risked his dog dying or at the least, he put another dog in danger of dying due to space being needed. What a shame that this person didn't have any family, any friends that could help him out. There was space in boarding too! We know, because we had to board him to save a life.

VICTORY LAPS

NASHVILLE -- Nash Rec appears to be peaking at the right time as the Sharks prepare to defend their Nash-Halifax Swim League Championship.
The Sharks improved to 3-0 overall on the summer season with a team victory last Thursday at backyard rival Birchwood Country Club.
Nash Rec, coached by Wendy Wilson, was a 634-150 winner to finish off a two-match season sweep over the Barracudas.
Nash Rec has had four contests this season, but one of them -- a much-anticipated event against Roanoke Valley -- was shortened due to poor weather and will not count toward the final standings.
