Chief Justice Hassell comes to Wise County

Last night, Chief Justice Leroy R. Hassell of the Virginia Supreme Court was the guest speaker at the 30th Judicial Circuit Bench/Bar conference in Big Stone Gap. He arrived early, before dinner, spoke with everyone who approached him, had many kind (and some hilarious) words for Judge Coleman and Justice Kinser from our area, and gave a speech which showed, if nothing else, his determination to know about Southwest Virginia.

I'm glad he was there, and that I was, too.
