    The Embers are coming to town on December 9. People around here past a certain age will recognize that name – a well-known beach band that’s still entertaining audiences across the Carolinas.

  • County Council cools on air-rail industrial park project

    The vote was 6-0. Councilwoman Charlene McGriff was absent that night.

    Vick, a Democrat, won the Nov. 6 general election by 723 votes. Yow, a Republican, claimed there were enough discrepancies in voting procedures in Chesterfield County to more than offset that margin.
