Judy Hoke Sherrill, a long-term official in the justice system in this county, has announced her intention to seek election to the office of Clerk of Superior Court for Catawba County, subject to the May 6, 2014, Republican primary.
Sherrill is a native of Catawba County and a graduate of Newton-Conover High School.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries it wasn't uncommon for towns and communities in Catawba county to slowly disappear into oblivion or meld into larger surrounding cities.
County lines were often changed, crops sometimes didn't grow causing the economy to fail, and families moved away.
