Good grief children; The cases cited were sheer stupidity and carelessness, but we have that with knives sticks, and fists as well as feet. "Teen punches soccer ref, ref later dies." I agree, Mr. Heim did not call for banning guns but how do you ban stupidity? So the argument is not about gun control or banning guns but banning said stupidity?
Mr. Heim, every so often you or somebody else revisits this issue, is there a personal reason except to foment heated debate?
??? Does Hayter have a Structural Engineering license, an Architectural license? For 160+ units, you are looking at a lot of sq ftg, I sincerely doubt you cost estimates are anywhere close to reality. $365,000.00 might cover ground and foundation costs. The liability of a structure to hold rolling loads and impact loads? .rethink.
I see already the Dustys of the forum jumping with glee. yes those trolls as you are want to call them are those very people who gladly and proudly speak their minds, their beliefs and with their freedoms which is exactly what Dusty and company don't want. All that being said, the printed media IS fast phasing out as the internet moves in the fill the void. Be that as it may This paper was much more community minded under Mr.Ragan and his predecessors. Mr Woronof seems to have brought a more worldly view and far more liberal bent. Yes, newspapers are losing relevancy and the Pilot having moved all of its operations out of Southern Pines thereby losing it's local flavor and local jobs is soon done. It does not represent the many conservative voices in Moore county, [it may tolerate them as a gesture of bipartisanship] but it is a progressive leaning rag.
David it may have taken awhile, but you truly did bring down a time honored Moore County institution. Congratulations !
Of course you would Dusty, that IS, after all your style.
And mr Russell, We could do that but you know in yur heart of hearts THAT is not going to happen. The air traffic controllers in actually had MORE finds available, this whole sequester on their part was completely contrived.
Dusty don't you think the President of the United States should or is required to submit a budget EVERY YEAR? is THAT NOT RIGHT? So who is the braindead ignoramus? The Budget IS REQUIRED and you know that.
Why, for heaven's sake, are you worried about the Wake issue. Every state congress after an election will look to redistrict areas. That is politics. Just follow up on Moore That should be your concern. This little table practice has gone on since districts were set.
My concern is , does the republican majority and the administration follow through with the agenda they were voted in with.
As you can see, Mr May, the progressive consensus here is spend and more spendin the better. Give away the store. After all the fed can print all the paper it wants, set values all they want and we can entitle the population until after this and the next generation are gone, and then ---------who cares.
I have never seen a greedier bunch. let the grandchildren deal with the resultant trash pile.
Because of the background of HOW the village was designed and laid out not so much by Tufts directive bit from the landscape planner there is a certain amount of historicity that should be preserved. Problem is, few actually understand or study planning histories of towns like Pinehurst in it's proper context. Pinehurst, in the overall scheme of things, is not that old nor historic except for the reason of who designed it and it's golf beginnings.
A basic issue here, Pinehurst was NOT designed for the automobile of today and the type of business trade of today. It was NOT designed for the expansion over the years of all the extra golf courses. So some capitulation must be made.
But all this being said, IF the floundering continues, do nothing. BECAUSE you have a town full of people who have no idea what they are doing and to keep up this folly, will cause serious division and strife in Pinehurst, which we already see happening.
SOMEBODY in that town SHOULD know history, SOMEBODY in that town SHOULD KNOW architecture, SOMEBODY in that town SHOULD KNOW common sense. Let's use it. don't guess
yep, could be. makes one wonder after all these years from 2009 till now??? and nobody figured it out?
we talking stigmatize or stagnate? In this day in age with the drug culture so set in the welfare community as well as elsewhere, when government is going to "entitle", government should place certain sense of responsibility to the recipient of entitlements to show their ability to assume a societal place in that responsibility.
It would do the county good to review the water issue in terms of what Moore County has, how to replenish it, and properly utilize it. There are underused system and a waste of potable water through extreme runoff. Moore needs to look at better wildwater retainage and wiser choice of hydronic engineering. As to the school issues, where has all of this come from? The children of today are actually behind in the learning curve even with all of these electronic devices. GET BACK to 3R's in elementary, base advancement through middle school then by high school get to the twitterverse of tomorrow. Children need to be taught discipline of learning and concentration skills. not electronic gadgetry. As to the Munis program, who investigated it to begin with? who parsed it, who actually saw progressive results? sounds like nobody had a clue. Immediately dump it and sue. goback to bean counting as you find a reliable accounting firm to advise you.
