A once famous County Commissioner

A miniaturized W.L. "Dubby" Pryor presents a $100,000 check to Rockingham County Community College.  Dubby was once famous for his good works, vast wealth and for being a super wonderful human being and County Commissioner. 

Dubby was the first person to receive free money from Rockingham County for connecting his housing development to the W.L. Pryor Memorial Waterline that quite coincidentally runs past Dubby's property from Reidsville to the Dynegy gas turbine power plant. 

Although Dynegy protested the waterline, saying a well on the Dynegy property was adequate, the Commissioners were certain a 20-mile waterline was needed for Dynegy.  Millions of gallons of water are poured out onto the ground weekly to keep the water from going stale in the little used line.  It seems few people wanted to connect to Dubby's waterline.

Dubby is also the first person to accuse the Neely Chronicle of being a front for a Communist propaganda machine (Russian or Chinese) because the Chronicle criticized the Rockingham County Commissioners.

Note that's RCC Presudent Bobby Keys on the far right.  This is a rare photo of Bobby without all his turquoise bling.

The News-Record and the Review have thus far protected Dubby's elderly fan base from the news of his possible involvement in an illegal gambling operation.  Only Star News, RCENO, and the Reidsville Review Review have reported the raid on Dubby's Ruffin Ranch.

It would have been much better if Dubby were suspected of defrauding the elderly out of their pensions, but a gambling charge will have to do in a pinch, if he is convicted.

    Just below Shane Woodall's award for SRO of the year.
