Our View: Heralds of spring

Thumbs-up: to shoring up the 24th Judicial District district attorney posting with the selection of former N.C. Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr. Orr's qualifications and experience position him well to tend to the district's affairs until this year's election can solidify a permanent candidate.

Thumbs-up: to the opening of trout season -- is there any more fitting herald of spring in the High Country? Kudos, also, to Blowing Rock's annual trout derby last weekend drawing dozens of fishermen and children to opening day.

Thumbs-up: to voter registration. It's your right and responsibility to cast a ballot, but 5 p.m. today is the last day to register to vote in the May 6 primary. For more information, visit the Watauga County Elections Office at 842 W. King St. in Boone.
