Garner: Opinion

Editorial: Growth can’t stop during planning process

Implicit in that request was the suggestion that the town ought not to act on the request until after the town’s comprehensive planning process is complete.

It’s time to fill some empty bowls

A group of selected fourth-grade students at Vandora Springs Elementary have spent the better part of this school year making bowls they will give to patrons who bring 20 or more cans of food as a donation to this year's Empty Bowl project. The students will be on hand at the school Dec. 8 beginning at 6 p.m. to accept donations and allow supporters to select the bowl of their choice.
