It is that time of year again, when creepy crawlers come out of the woodwork, fight the dandelions and trim the dead-wood so the trees will bloom. It is also the time when Roanoke County residents have to choose some members of the County Board of Supervisors. In my 70 years plus in Roanoke County, I think we have chosen some of the best ever. Roanoke County saw the light when elected a real jewel, Martha Hooker.

Now we have the opportunity to elect another outstanding gentleman, David Radford. I know he is not as pretty as some of the candidates, nor can he talk you to death and say nothing, but he can back up what he does say. Mr. Radford comes from a family of business developers, builders that have left a legacy in the Roanoke Valley that will remain until eternity. David has the education, ability, integrity and background to be one of the best supervisors ever. If you think you won't get caught, stuff the ballot box.

Thanking you in advance.
