He was once billed as the most powerful, the wealthiest man in Rockingham County. He was once on the Board at RCC and practically every other board in the county. He ran a loan company. He ran the Economic Development Commission. He was a Rockingham County Commissioner. He ran for state office. Dubby Pryor ruled Rockingham County.
Sadly Dubby Pryor is reported to have fallen on some hard times. Things are not what they once were for Dubby Pryor. A bankruptcy may be involved, a heart attack, and unrelenting abuse from the Neely Chronicle who suspected Dubby was always up to no good.
Now things have gone from bad to worse. Dubby is suspected of involvement in an illegal gambling operation on his Ruffin estate. Rockingham County sheriff's deputies raided Dubby's ranch and confiscated evidence of a sweepstakes operation.
Rockingham County District Attorney Craig Blitzer will present his case to a grand jury on October 5th.
I hope Blitzer can keep The Zero and Dubby cases straight.
