Excellent! That was a bunch of hard work and dedication! Thank you all for all you do to represent our area. I have heard many proud people comment on your achievements.
Dave, (oldspook), You ask reasonable and intellegent questions. I don't know if S.S. will increase their numbers from the ranks of our county. I would just cal them and ask to get the best answer. I do know for sure that they have hired a lot of Sandhill's Community College grads and kept them here in Moore County. That's a good thing.
There are so many people who blog and I think it really is a neat thing. I mean that. I can understand die-hard opponents being mad at me because I used reason, and with that reason, say the jail is needed, and belongs with close proximity to the courts.
My original Column was pointed at telling the truth. Asking good questions and formulating an opinion based on broad minded research is much better for our community than hot-head drama.
Abraham Lincoln used to get others mad at him because he would listen, and ask direct questions, rather than chime in with opinion. Once, someone said to him(paraphrased) "Mr. Lncoln, How can you remain silent on this very important topic?", to which he said, "My dear fellow, on a topic a man knows little about,it is better to keep his mouth shut and let people perceive him as a fool, than to open it and prove it!"
Almost Unbelievable! I ask for truth, and instead of any knowledge whatsoever preceding the pen, we get more lies. For those of you who have read the comments above, please let me answer the ones that are plumb stupid. Let's see...PlumbsLevel seems to be the most in need of repair, so there I will begin.
I have represented this Window Manufacturer for almost 12 years. Your accusation would have made sense, except for the minor FACT that we don't make or sell commercial windows or doors for that grade of Commercial project. A simple phone call to me with a towel muffling your voice would have saved you the necessary apology. I accept. Bless your heart.
Secondly, Plumblevel is worried about a Tatto Parlor.( I own the Marion Building next to the house he is refering to. The house is beautiful inside and out. When they bought it , the Marion Building was trashed.(next door) Someone had a pool hall in it and then it was used as a rummage sale place with trash all over the floor. I have photos for all to see. I am a Republican. I rent to the Democrats. They are very good tenents and I am blessed to have them. I am also blessed to have each and every other tenent. There is a really nice Dance Studio in the back. We have a Karate Class that shares a space with her. A small Government office is in the building. Across from that is a Facial and Massage therapist. The Tattoo Parlor recently moved to the front. It is a really clean and well run business. Roger is a really neat guy to talk to if you would like to actually know about the business, rather than run it down.
The same Moody house was bought with a really shabby house across the corner that has gotten no better (currently refrigerator and other appliances on front porch) NAPA, a nice business is across the street and the government has put a day reporting center, where people hang out and smoke. (Now how is my building, which I allow no loitering, bringing down their home?) I also cleaned up a back alley which was rat infested. Does anyone know this? You do now. I invite you there to see it.
PlumbLevel stated that I worked for the Carthage Museum. NO, Dr. Factoid, I do not. I was a volunteer and served on the comittee for about 10 years. I currently am not on the committee. I enjoyed it and respect the work done by others in the past and present. If you are not involved in anything that helps the town, give the Museum a try. You will find that homes and business's have been co-existing all over Carthage. I accept your apology...bless your heart.
Yes! My wife works for the County! You got one right! Way to go! Unfortunatly, it is about as relevant as growing watermelons and skydiving. no need to apologize...but bless your heart anyway.
Ok...so you have the information corrected now. I have a copy of the county's presentation at hand if anyone wants that. Either way, my point is that you not lie, exaggerate, dramatize, or create fiction. This holds true for all issues.
