Mark Warner: The people of Virginia feel unsafe

Leadership is making decisions based on the best interests of the people you represent, even when it is unpopular. Mark Warner, four ISIS terrorists have been caught at the border (judicial Ebola-infected people could also cross the border. Since 1962, Enterovirus D68 was rare in the USA until mass immigration of 50,000 unaccompanied children from Central America came pouring across our border this summer.

The CDC states that 973 patients are now in 47 states and eight children have died from EV-D68. Why have you not raised your voice? A border fence has been long overdue. Why did you vote against securing the border with a fence (HR 2892) in 2009?

‘Ghosts & More’ tour was a great success

Thanks to many volunteers and sponsors, the 12th annual Ghosts & More event was a great success for Franklin County Historical Society. Thanks to valued media support, we attracted passengers from seven states in addition to Virginia.

A public "thank you" is due to Commonwealth Coach & Trolley Museum, which provided vintage buses. Sponsoring those buses were the Town of Rocky Mount; Bojangles-Dairy Queen-Arrington Enterprises; Franklin Grocery & Grain -- Peggie Foster, president; and a Franklin County Tourism micro grant.

We thank all the sponsors of the event.
