A wrap to an interesting week locally and statewide. Invitations are coming in to planned marriages — many from loving couples of the same sex.
Opponents of the ill-advised natural gas pipeline that is proposed to run from a fracking field in West Virginia to a distribution center in Chatham celebrated a decision by the Mountain Valley Pipeline partners to avoid Floyd County.
Assuming another route change doesn’t put it back in Floyd, the gas fight is over here — for now — but Roanoke and Montgomery county residents now face the problems.
Football returns to Floyd County Friday night after a bye week with the Buffaloes facing a tough fight against Radford. The Buffs are currently 1-4 and looking for a change around.
A rare break this week from Circuit Court’s normally unrelenting glut of drug cases and worse. The docket currently sits nervously quiet next week as well — just as well since the county board of supervisors meets on the same day next Tuesday. Circuit Court returns with a vengeance for the third week of October.

October is upon us. Not much time left for 2014.
