NOVEMBER/DECEMBER,
2009: "The best way to select
a lawyer is to find a friend or
acquaintance who has been
through a similar problem
and has employed counsel.
If your friend was satisfied,
it is a pretty good bet you
will also be pleased with that
attorney." -William Poff,
top-rated attorney in the peerselected "Top Attorneys 2009."

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER, 2008: "For
more than a century, the Jewish community of Roanoke has felt at home
in this beautiful city. We value our
many friendships with area churches
and feel committed to contributing to
the depth of spirituality found here.
Through prayer, study and good deeds,
we recognize God's blessings among
us." -Rabbi Kathy Cohen, Temple
Emanuel, quoted in Marie Hodge's "Roanoke's Many Faces of Faith."

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER, 2007: "We'd
make better use of
the [Blue Ridge]

JULY/AUGUST, 2010: "Q.
For awhile, there was all
this hoopla about Roanoke having a sister city
over in Korea; how come
you never hear about that

Wonju take a survey and
find out?" -Ace columnist Gossipman, revisiting
a sophomoric "highlight"

City Seer.

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER, 2011:
"All businesses are interested in
their survival, and if I thought
it was a threat to our survival to
be in Roanoke, we'd certainly
remedy that." -Meridium owner
Bonz Hart, speaking to writer Rob
Johnson in his piece "Meridium:
Bringing the World to Roanoke."

MAY/JUNE, 2012:
"I went to get
my $50 business
license and parked
in front of the
Municipal Building, a 15-minute
zone. Had to go
to three different
offices but decided to chance the
five minutes I was
going overtime.
Lost! Forgot to
pay it. With fines,
it came to $45. So
I started my business with a $95
deficit." -Jane
Gabrielle, talking
to Dan Smith in
his piece "Parking: There's Plenty,
There's None."

12 | NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2017

MARCH/APRIL, 2002: "I don't think so. Everywhere I've been, people think their area is the worst
. . . whether it's Richmond, Winston-Salem or
other places." -Dr. David C. Walton, responding to
Norma Lugar's question on if Roanoke is a hotbed for
allergies in the piece "Living in the Allergy Zone."

30

MARCH/APRIL, 2013: "She was the
dearest, sweetest little person we have
ever known. She could sense when
we were a little down and would try
to cheer us up. She had a big heart,
an even bigger soul and a very sharp
mind. We loved her totally and always
will. This is among the worst experiences of our lives. We can never fully
recover." -Warner Dalhouse, from
his piece on the loss of his dog, "Lucy:
Because She Looks Like Lucy."
