    What's up with Halifax county??? This county makes the news almost everyday. And it usually isn't good news. I used to work in RR and go through there. I wouldn't dare go through it now unless I really had to. I know that bad things happen every where, but this place has gotten really bad.

    anonymous i just about agree with you. drug use would probably go down because some people just like breaking the law.
