To the groundbreaking for the Venters fire substation by volunteers, Ayden town officials and community members. Ayden fire department officials said the facility will put all residents closer to a station and save them money on insurance along the way. The project, to be situated on donated property, will cost about $150,000, officials said. Comprehensive fire protection is critical for a community’s safety and growth, making this addition a long-awaited and important improvement.

To shameless scofflaws — or worse — who used a “blunt object” to break into three vehicles during last weekend’s Beast of the East soccer event. Total damages were estimated at $600 while property reported stolen from the vehicles was valued at nearly $2,500. Increasingly it is becoming more difficult to hold such large-scale and popular events without the scourge of petty criminals arriving to spoil the moment. Visitors to our community easily could feel disgust as a result.

To county resident and nature lover Irene Cannon, who continues to follow and document the flight and fervor of the bald eagles and other wildlife that frequent the ponds, fields and forests near her Cannon’s Crossroads home. Her photographs, long a fixture on Reflector pages, remind a community steadily growing more crowded of its rural roots and the beauty and wonder of the natural world just outside its collective doorstep. Keep those eagles flying, Irene.
