Government could cash in with old rifles

Would you or someone you know be interested in purchasing a vintage World War II and Korean War M1 Garand or Carbine rifle from the U.S. government?

                    County officials warn residents against burning in dry weather

                    County officials were hoping to get an official burn ban in place for Lafayette County this morning at a special meeting of the Board of Supervisors; however, not enough supervisors were at the meeting to reach the quorum needed to approve the ban.

                    Three out of five supervisors are necessary to vote on anything official. Supervisors Robert Blackmon and Lloyd Oliphant were the only supervisors present at the meeting.

                    The item will be placed on the agenda for Monday’s regular meeting at 9 a.m. at the Chancery Building. (September 30, 2010, Page 1)
