NOTTOWAY CITIZEN LAST NIGHT TO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS: The expression 'Good ole boy' is more than just about color of faces and gender of those in charge: "It's an entrenched system of favoritism and only being transparent when it's convenient." Another citizen tells Supervisors that yes, the County has money in the bank, but "at the expense of needed services like fire & rescue, law enforcement, and trash collection to name a few..." ALSO: Letter writer offers partial retraction to findings on Nottoway election yard signs. He says that upon further review, signs for all three candidates for Sheriff comply.

THE LATEST FROM NOTTOWAY: Rt. 460 is clear, and normal traffic patterns have resumed at the Cox Road intersection. Recapping this morning's accident: At about 6:05 a.m., a tractor-trailer was traveling east on Rt. 460 when it collided at the Cox Road intersection with an armored military humvee. The tractor-trailer driver suffered an ankle or leg injury. Two persons inside the military vehicle were seriously injured. Both were conscious and very alert at the scene. We believe one was MedFlighted as a precaution. Firefighters and others at the scene said the durability of the humvee likely prevented a fatality or two.

Due to profanity -- as well as what the editor believes were several inappropriate comments -- we have decided to delete the two threads reporting yesterday's tragedy on the RR tracks. We do NOT like to take such "parental" action, but we have long urged those commenting on our page to be civil, respectful of one another, and to refrain from profanity. We WELCOME all opinions on issues, and we welcome feedback on the newspaper--especially negative, constructive feedback. Our sympathy to the family—and also our prayers for those who witnessed the tragedy—and let's all try to be better.
