I think there's a lot more to learn and find out about this before judgement prevails. And, keep in mind, it is not up to us to cast judgement. The media does a wonderful job pitting us against one another....anything to keep us looking to them for "more info." It's sick really. My own personal feelings are there are more things we can do as a community for "our own" than hold a vigil for someone before the truth is told. How about we hold vigils for the children in our own community who have unfortunately passed? Or help educate our "community watch" programs and get more people involved and prevent "misunderstandings." Maybe we would have less break-ins or criminals running around in our own backyard. While I think it's great to want to support something you believe in....I think it's better to wait until we have all the facts first, or you may end up looking pretty foolish. Happy Easter-
I would have taken one for a tire swing :)
First, I hope the little boy gets better soon. I have a daughter his age and I cannot imagine what the parents are going through right now - prayers for all. Second, I think a lot of people need to repeat drivers ed. I don't care that the school "red" lights and stop sign was not out yet. The fact of the matter is the flashers were on and the bus was slowing down. That means there are children around and you need to slow down and stop a good distance away from the bus anyway...it doesn't mean "oh, I better hurry up and try to get by this bus before they put that stop sign out.
@ emb6683: I can understand trying to say if we had changed the clock back an hour already that there would be more visibility, but really, when you are in any vehicle you need to drive cautiously no matter what time of day or night it is....and the driver already admitted seeing the flashers go on.
I'm sorry if this sounds like the blame game, but there has to be accountability and there needs to be consequences or else...well, you see and read everything that's happening these days, where are the consequences to make people think before they act, react, or don't react in this case?
This makes me so sad. I hope and pray the child is okay.
Well, for that, I thank YOU for your service; I have many friends who are both married and in the service, I know it is not easy (and a path I almost took as well). I still stand by the "doing your own research" and get that your husband picked the place for you to live, but it sounds like you've been so busy you never got a chance to meet up with some of the great people in this area. Your closing comment seemed a bit harsh so it's understandable you would get the replies you've gotten. I have lived in both Fayetteville and Pinehurst, and while there are a few nice, safe places over there, this area is so much better. I have never worn my husband's rank and don't have the nice leisure lifestyle you might think I have. With that said, I hope you have a safe move and find a place to live that has the lifestyle you are craving and deserve.
Wow, Fightfirewithfire.....bold words. I am also supporting my military husband and love the area. You did have an absolute choice where you lived while you were stationed here, it's called doing your own research via internet, realtors, friends, and wait for it....making a trip or two to actually check out the area first hand. Sounds like I should be glad you won't be back...you're probably one of the wives who makes trouble while her husband is deployed so he's more worried about you than the task at hand.
There is a lot of bashing going on toward our elderly neighbors, but there's a lot of bashing about everyone on here. I take everything with a grain of salt, because after all, all these comments are just people's opinions. Some people get so worked up and just need to lighten up. Have a great day everyone!
Nothing like being caught with your pants down....
Agree. Thank you to Dale Black for voting against this budget proposal.
No, last I checked, I'm not nuts. I'm just agreeing that no matter where the AH students decided to go, if the BOE did not pass this new and quite sudden proposal, there will be overcrowding. It was all poor planning way before WPE even opened. I'm also saying, by closing AH and distributing the YR program between PES and WPE, it doesn't really save much money in the end - does it? We have another YR program in the county that would have worked just fine for those wanting to keep with that curriculum. But now, by adding the YR to PES and WPE, less money will be available for the REST of Moore County students and has to come from somewhere; still sounds selfish to me.
Yes, they would; however, the money that we don't have to fund this YR program in BOTH PES and WPE, could have (and should be used) to keep programs and teachers as well as help accomodate the influx of students. Poor way to reallocate lacking funds.
