    Well at least this guy became decent enough to drop her off at the hospital. Thank God for that.

    Praying for the woman and her loved ones.

    God bless.

    Halifax County has been very busy in the news lately. We have the "Toot-Toot" stabbing saga, "Apples", who was missing but turned up safe, and now this. I'm sorry, but without a clever nickname, I can't get behind this. How about "Stabby"?

    Hollister...a good place to raise a family. Not.
