Parade Grand Marshal to be Sentenced

Greensboro News/Reidsville Review reporter Taft Wireback (yes, that's his real name) is reporting former Reidsville Christmas parade Grand Marshal, and the owner of Rockingham County's now-defunct #1 tourist attraction Chinqua-Penn, Calvin Phelps is facing up to 43 years in prison when he is sentenced in September.

Phelps was convicted 15 months ago of dodging surcharges on cigarettes manufactured in his Mocksville plant.

Taft's Reidsville Review accounting of Phelp's adventure fails to mention Phelps was honored as the parade's Grand Marshal.
