Time is one of life’s precious commodities, even though sometimes we feel that we don’t have enough of it. Could it be that we are trying to live life too fast. When we do this, we tend to miss out on a lot of good things life has to offer.
I am writing to you in hopes that the public can render some help in solving a safety problem in the community of Cluster Springs. That safety issue happens to be the intersection between Highway 501 and State Route 658, or commonly referred to as Huell Matthews Highway and Cluster Springs/Cherry Hill Church Road.
Each year there are events and holidays that many of us wait for. For some it is a birthday, for others a major holiday. And for still others it is the opportunity presented each year at a church or civic get together.
I was honored when I was asked to write this letter to the paper. A letter that is meant for the voters of Halifax County to read before you all go to the voter’s booth. I’m sure some would use this chance to try to convince you to vote one way or another, that’s not my goal. My goal is to tell you about what I have observed from one of your neighbors, Kathy Fraley.
On Tuesday, citizens will have the opportunity to vote on an additional 1% sales tax to support school construction projects in Halifax County.
We have all heard that “good news” just doesn’t sell. I submit to you though that good news does matter. Too bad we are not all programmed and determined to make every effort at “catching things done well” and bringing it to the attention of everyone.

This is in response to a letter from Pat Wingler regarding the sales tax referendum. Ms. Wingler is either completely unaware of how the 1-cent referendum came to be, what it is, what the money can be used for and how long it would last, or she is just opposed to any kind of tax for any reason.
I’m 19 years old. I am a Halifax resident. I’m currently stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, attached to 82nd Air Borne Division, but I am truly inspired to be a musician.
As owners and operators of Halifax County businesses, we write in support of the local option sales tax referendum on which Halifax County citizens will vote Nov. 5, 2019.
There are times we feel like we are living in a perfect world. We get up each day and take everything in stride. We pray each day that things will be better than the day before. We don’t live in a perfect world, perhaps we never will. So much has happened in today’s world that we might not be able to change.
