IN Q=Very friendly

((VERY FRIENDLY. NO PROBLEM WITH WALKING DOWN THE STREET AND SOMEONE LOOKING YOU IN THE EYE AND SAYING GOOD MORNING OR HELLO AND THAT MEANS A LOT. QUALITY OF LIFE MEANS A LOT TO ME IN MY JOB. MY JOB CAN BE FRUSTRATING, IT CAN BE TRYING AT TIMES. ON THOSE OCCASIONS WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING TO HELP A CITIZEN OR HELP THE COMMUNITY, MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE. IT'S ALL WORTH IT.))
RUNS=:25
OUT Q=all worth it


Holland is no newcomer to this line of work -- he's wrapping up a stint as Vinton's assistant town manager.
But as the Franklin County seat, Rocky Mount is different -- Holland says business is booming and building I-73 will cement that trend.
He has no big changes in mind -- except to improve relations between town council and the board of supervisors.
He believes in compromise.

RUNS=:17
OUT Q=that way


These newlyweds say they may even raise little Hollands in Rocky Mount.
