Two Missing

Most of the new slate of Blackstone officials were sworn-in last week at Town Hall by Nottoway Circuit Court Deputy Clerk Kay Hartwill and began their terms of office July 1st. Because the At-Large Council race is being challenged -- with a hearing not until July 9th -- Town Attorney Tessie Bacon recommended not swearing-in either of the two At-Large Councilmen-elect, Eric Nash and Lonnie Morgan.
