Hello, Review, there are three recognized parties in the state

Hello, Reidsville Review, you might want to check with the guys at the Greensboro News.  They have a video that mentions three parties in North Carolina, not two.  You left Libertarians out of your poll.

Mayodan charges three with speeding.

The Reidsville Review is reporting the Mayodan Police Department charged three people with speeding this week.  Don't linger here, click on the Greensboro News for more news.

A new newspaper low

The Reidsville Review does a special interview with Ziggy the Piggy.  I swear I'm not making this up.

Flag at quarter-staff

The photographic skills of the Reidsville Review's Jessica Alexander.

God spoke it

The rally was designed to drum up support for Phil Berger and Bert Jones who are both running for state office.  It was a shameless show of partisanship.  There's nothing either man can do to change things.  I especially loved it when the crowd broke into a hymn.

One hundred years ago Rockingham County magistrates were refusing to marry blacks and whites.  Mixed marriages were against their religious beliefs.  I'm not sure what else to say about this story.

It's a hell of a lot more attention than the Reidsville Review gave the legal decision regarding gay marriage, but if you notice the page address, you'll see it's not actually posted in the's a Greensboro News story linked to by the Review.

Halloween costume poll

The Reidsville Review's Halloween costume poll doesn't seem to be attracting much attention.

Feel free to vote, if you are so inspired.

Bethany Community Middle School Trunk or Treat

Granny and Raggedy Ann won the costume contest.

Rockford Peach Jennifer Moore Miller won the cutest adult costume contest.  Believe it or not, Ms. Miller is 37 years old.

Per standard procedure, some kid dressed up as professional "rassler" Kane.

The referee, the baseball player and the football player. 

Gangsta style

I think this little one was dressed as a skeleton.


Quiet please.

Not sure who or what this kid was, but he was cute.

As was this fellow.

Debbie Moore likes Split P

Cute kid

Fairy princess gone wrong

Nasty cut

Another satisfied customer

County Commissioner candidate Craig Travis had the scariest booth.  He was also the only politician who came to Trunk or Treat and the only person out of hundreds who wasn't afraid to smoke on school grounds.  Who's afraid of the law?  Atta boy, Craig!

Saunders Hardware to close

With little fanfare, the Reidsville Review has announced it will be closing its 75 year old store, Saunders True Value Hardware.

Noted for its customer service and fair prices, Saunders will become the latest victim of Chinese importer Walmart and Lowes Home Improvement.  The store will close by the end of this year to coincide with the closing of Walmart's K-Mart.

In positive economic news, Garth Brooks will be performing an unprecedented five shows at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Reidsville Review possessed by demons

I've waited a week to see what the Reidsville Review would say about what is probably the biggest civil liberties decision made in decades.  The Greensboro News was all over the story, but the Review very delicately avoided discussion of the issue.

A small note about the first gay couple in Rockingham County was posted for two days on the Review's front page and then was very quickly taken down and hidden away from view.  Most stories last more than a month on the Review's front page, but not a gay story.

A graph showing how disgusted the citizens of Rockingham County are with the legal decision to allow gay marriage reflected the 70 percent vote to adopt the ridiculous constitutional Amendment One passed in North Carolina a couple of years ago.  That graph stayed up for days and days on the Review's web site.  If anything, Rockingham County is now even more disgusted than when Amendment One was approved.  And so is apparently the Reidsville Review.

This week a Rockingham County magistrate resigned in protest over the gay marriage issue.  He didn't want to marry gay couples.  The Greensboro News posted the story.  Hell, they even posted it in the Review's web folder, but the Review has declined to mention the event.

The Review is a pathetic excuse for a newspaper.

Giving back mulch and paint

"Giving Back" photo from the Reidsville Review

It's been a few weeks, but the Reidsville Review has not forgotten its grand tradition of "giving back".  This time it's a story about Duke Power "giving back" mulch and paint to Eden.
