    As the N&R says, City Council member Mike Barber “isn’t horsing around.” But does Mayor Keith Holliday have to be so enthusiastic about the idea? A horse patrol downtown is a great idea. From a conceptual basis, I love it. I think it’s a great image for our…

    Somebody help me out here. Greesnboro police chief Tim Bellamy writes a letter to the U.S. Attorney’s office telling them he is “very disappointed that you do not feel the public release of such information requires any action by your office… There is no question in my mind that the…
