    2 hrs ago | Spring Hope Enterprise

  7. School split the best optionRead the original story

    Thursday Apr 28 | Spring Hope Enterprise

    Nash County commissioners, and Nash County citizens, have had enough of the political shenanigans and absurd accusations of racist Rocky Mount council members and spineless Edgecombe commissioners over the subject of equitable school funding. After productive meetings between the commissioners of the two counties, adding Rocky Mount representatives to the discussion completely torpedoed any progress as city figures trotted out claims as tired as they were inaccurate.
