The recognition is nice and I commend her effort and dedication but find it very sad that officials couldn't have done a better job investigating her son's death. R.I.P. Scott.
It's a nice thought. I suppose we can all hope as much of him.
So was the vote even valid with less than 4 votes ? Wasn't the property perc tested before such an enormous purchase was made with taxpayers' money or was it acquired with full knowledge of lack of buildable area ? I wonder. I've a feeling the circle of friends includes other members as well. Been past some naturally fertilized fields recently that were quite aromatic, but nothing so pungent as this.
Am I missing something here, or is there a relevant factor that's not mentioned ? I found the link added to CSmithson's post yesterday very interesting and what was politely described as ironic I find to be foul and smelly.
Now that's putting the cart ahead of the, well, you know ............
I wondered the same thing .....perhaps the club owners are hoping for delays or for the sale to go through and make the payoff a little less painful. Maybe it is just poor planning, but I rather suspect that it is cunning built into the plan.
The original point-n-click interface was a Smith & Wesson and the high grain 9mm rounds loaded in it have plenty of stopping power. Never have cared for a trigger lock myself, but to each his/her own. And, sorry, but bad guys don't get the courtesy of hearing one rack into the chamber to think twice about what they're doing. Neither will they be carded to check to make sure that they're not juvenilles. Toyotas aren't the only rejects that can be recalled by their maker.
I still haven't found mention in The Pilot of the upcoming Springfest in downtown Southern Pines, not even in the Extras !! Tour de Moore and all that. Whazzup ? I've seen the signs for parking, so they must still be holding it. Geez, and I thought it was a big event for SP !
Many moons ago when I attended Pinecrest before "approved" pranks and fencing around the parking lot existed and there was still a STUDENT smoking area, some senior pranksters spray painted passing-zone style dash lines up the ramp. As I recall, they were made to clean up the paint and given in-school suspension. They were from affluent families. I, on the other hand, was harshly threatened by the assistant principal with out-of-school suspension if I got one more tardy note. The following week I crossed paths with a state trooper squawling my tires around a curve trying to get to school on time. He gave me a warning ticket and a promise for a speeding ticket if he ever caught me driving in that fashion again. I hope the law is as just in its discretion in this instance. I learned a lesson that day: there are consequences to your actions. I feel certain that the pranksters that pulled this off have learned one, too. Shame on them for what they did and my sincere respect to them for owning up to it. Although I hate to admit it I found it amusing and am happy to know that ingenuity and good spelling still thrives.
@protectingmine, This, too, shall pass.
Sounds like a fun and interesting workshop, but at $180 I wouldn't think most people would call 2 six hour sessions affordable.
