No such thing as a bad family portrait
No such thing as a bad family portrait

If you were in the southern end of the county last weekend, and drove past a yard teeming with people in black shirts and blue jeans, don’t be alarmed.

You can imagine how much copy we process  here at The Graphic  every week including hundreds of e-mails, faxes and walk-in requests. We type, edit and write articles to complete an average of 20 - 24 pages of local news, sports and advertising each week – and sometimes almost double when we publish special editions. We work on all that copy while also  attending meetings and functions and taking photographs.

Donnie Deans (left) of the Deans Community and John Astor Winstead of Nashville compare tickets from sales on the Rocky Mount Tobacco Market. Donnie and his father sold 600 pounds for an average of 65 cents per pound. Winstead sold 1800 pounds for an average of 62 cents. Both farmers said they were pleased with their sales.

Nash County Animal Friends’ Notebook

To leash or not to leash…that is the question many dog owners ponder.  The Nash County Animal Friends volunteers recommend using a leash at all times when taking your dog off of your property.
