Well Considered  

We do encourage opinion pieces from people, who are well respected, and can provide provacative and well considered outlook on our world.


Here it is Tuesday evening, Sept 24, and I am driving into the quiet little town of Belhaven located in one of the most rural areas of northeast Beaufort County.
I want to take this opportunity to address the issue of building a new jail in Beaufort County. Building a law enforcement complex that includes the jail has been a topic for more than fifteen years, and will probably be for another fifteen years.
Donald Dixon has told the Beaufort County Commission how to solve the jail problem: Elect him Sheriff. He appeared before the board at its regular monthly meeting Monday (10-7-13) night and spoke during the public comment section of the agenda.
