They talk about it every year, but the Nottoway Board of Supervisors and School Board are finally going to hold a joint meeting -- for the first time in more than six years. I hope they set aside ample time for introductions, because some officials may have forgotten one another. “Oh my gosh, you look great! Haven’t seen you since 2014!”

Of course, the meeting is next Monday night, which conflicts with Blackstone Town Council. And they’re going to hold it in a ‘convenient’ location -- Burkeville Elementary School. But I digress, and I’m glad both boards are finally going to meet face-to-face.

Looks like I’m going to have to play some more golf in Crewe to find out what’s going on with that town’s search for a new police chief. I love the folks in Crewe -- including the elected officials -- but come on. You can’t even tell this newspaper the NUMBER of applications for the position? Who are you protecting? Is Jim Comey among the applicants?
