"Statistics show that about 40 percent of our students have no access to computers or to online learning at home..." Stop right there. It looks like we are right on track. The more kids stay away from technology, especially the kind that enhances person to person communication, and start applying themselves in real life situations with hard work and creative thinking, the better off everyone will be.
Gotta agree with RD28327 on The Pilot's lack of accuracy. Vass is clearly not in northern Moore.. When The Pilot goes fee based on the web that will be the end for me and everyone else I talk to. I love how all these businesses are trying to force the $9.99 a month economy on all of us. I cancelled all my subscriptions like that and I certainly won't be paying to read this paper online when it had previously been free. There are plenty of other free sources still available. Newspapers are nostalgic and I used to enjoy them greatly but they are really dinosaurs in today's world, especially if they think they can charge for their biased and inaccurate news.
Landopines you hit the nail on the head. The government bureaucrats are totally disconnected from reality.
We all understand that there are people with legitimate needs. The problem has become that the legitimate need line is way out of control. Every time I go to the store someone in line with me, if not everyone in line with me has an ebt card. In fact, seeing a person in line that is actually paying themself is the exception. What this tells me is that it is becoming way too easy to just not work and get a card instead. My problem is when young, able bodied people use these cards, it is really not fair that those of us who work 40-80 hours per week are paying for their groceries. Also, it is quite frequent to see people using an ebt card that have alcohol or cigarettes in their cart as well and sometimes they present other features of misuse of money. All these handouts will come to an end in the near future when the government runs out of money. Then everyone will be paying.
Everyone wants cuts but no one wants their pet project cut. This is why we are in the trouble that we are in. We should all be prepared to sacrifice for the greater good.
Pastor Matt is a wonderful person. It is good to hear he is recovering.
I have often wondered...what exactly is a Lady Rebel Bull?
No surprise here as North Moore has owned softball in Moore county since Coach McNeil came on the scene at least 10 years ago.
Just a strange quote. Didn't understand the meaning.
“The Arts Council board is to be commended for taking on the project,” Blake said. “And – can you believe it? – 15 people are coming from High Falls for the concert.”
Exactly what was this comment implying?????????????????
