I moved to rural Surry county to escape "drama" of the cities, but when it happens here it just hurts even more.

I was driving by the Jonesville PD this morning and saw a news van out front. The murder of Sgt. Greg Martin in 1996 has haunted the community. Newly printed wanted posters hang in local restaurants around Jonesville and neighboring Elkin, so the capture of a suspect in his death is good news for the area.

Unfortunately that "good" news is tempered by the deaths of two children from carbon monoxide poisoning in Elkin.

I've driven past that house numerous times, and know people who know the victims. This morning the makeshift memorial had grown, with teddy bears and burning candles.

I've lived in big cities but news like this just hurts more here in Surry.
