Coming Sunday in the Salisbury Post: Tattoos, tomatoes and town taxes

Summertime, and the tomatoes are ripening. Here’s some of what’s coming up in Sunday’s Salisbury Post:

• Tattoo taboos: There are things you simply should not do when getting a tattoo. Learn what a couple of local tattoo artists advise, as well as what a dermatologist recommends you consider.

• More resolutions: The Salisbury City Council will look at two proposals Tuesday as it tries to acknowledge the injustice of lynching while bringing healing to the community.

• Tomato time: See coverage of the Woodleaf Tomato Festival, a Rowan County tradition.

Rustic Edge Soaps: One goat leads to another for a Rockwell family that decided to make all-natural goat’s milk soap.

• Your favorite novel: Book Editor Deirdre Parker Smith updates readers on PBS’ “Great American Read.”

• Who has the highest town taxes of all? Finances of Rowan County towns and cities will be compared.

Opinion: The Rev. Olen Bruner writes about bridging the racial divide. Letter writers touch on the Wil-Cox Bridge, false equivalence, too much technology and the danger of 3-D printer guns.
