Posted 9/2/2016 in Local Columns

A down payment on our future.


Lynn Spruill: My front door

Posted 8/26/2016 in Local Columns

I have lots of stickers on the front door of my office. Probably too many. I have the typical "We're Open" sign that reverses to "We'll be back at" with a clock face and moving clock hands so we can approximate our return from wherever.

Lynn Spruill: Wynn-dy City Blues

Posted 7/22/2016 in Local Columns

Lynn Spruill: Moving the goal posts (again)

Posted 7/8/2016 in Local Columns

Just when we thought we had a workable plan. We were so close. And yet there seems to be no end to the Police Department building saga.


Lynn Spruill: Pat

Posted 7/1/2016 in Local Columns

Posted 5/20/2016 in Local Columns

Lynn Spruill: Economic gambles
