HILLSVILLE — Utility projects in Fancy Gap still await the approval of Rural Development before going to bid.
The Carroll County Public Service Authority members received an update on the status of the Fancy Gap water and sewer projects at their regular August meeting Monday.
Paperwork in their board packet noted that the water portion awaits final authorization from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to advertise for construction bids.
INDEPENDENCE — In a surprise move, Grayson County Board of Supervisors’ Vice Chairman Doug Carrico said Wednesday morning that he will not seek re-election as the board’s at-large member.
Carrico, now serving his second term, announced last week that he would run as a political independent after losing the Republican nomination to David Sexton during a mass meeting in July.
Cancer patients and their caregivers have questions, and a volunteer organizer hopes to provide the answers.
Pete Bramley of Fancy Gap continues to seek assistance from volunteers to compile a directory of services to meet the needs of patients and their families.
He’s put out a call to those who can help contribute the information needed to help people at a time when they don’t need any other kind of stress.
The disease is all too common — Bramley counted 22 people on prayer lists from his church alone who have some form of cancer.
