What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Is the Piedmont Shopper making its bid to take over?

The Dan River Regions favorite newspaper, The Piedmont Shopper, is so easy to view on the net.....just click on paper and it comes up full screen ...click again and it comes up big enough to read each page...or pick one up at your favorite store. And now they're starting to make their bid to kick R&B butt. Readers are invited to send in their news and stories about local events.

Do you have a photo, a community event, news? If you do, don't forget to send it in to The Piedmont Shopper. We all love stews this time of the year. Share your favorite recipe. Send in a photo of your favorite team, officers in your club...action shot from a little league or one of the many different high school teams or an award, etc...any aspiring writers who want to cover a game, your stories are welcome.

The Register & Bee likes national and state news. Danville readers like LOCAL news. So just send in your story and photo or an exciting story about someone who perhaps was a Danville trolley conductor,fighter pilot,or anyone with a story to tell.

Did you notice the Piedmont Shopper has a column by Mr. Leigg who for years taught at GWHS.....look on the back page for all the happenings ...I see a pancake breakfast this Saturday.....the South Boston Speedway has an ad here with a coupon buy two general admissions and get the third one free.....this Saturday March 7 they have an open pratice from 10 - 4 and it is Free and the next Saturday the 14th the season opens with racing beginning at 2pm.....and while there enjoy the great food...Yummmmmmy........excitement is on every turn..... ... even if you aren't a race fan you might just like it here....
