From where did the grant for the test wells come? If it was government funds please don't let the Moore County Planning Board know about it.
So the local planning board wants to dictate the use of federal funding? Maybe another golf course would be a better use. SMH.
The writer lost me at, "our nation considers taking guns away from us." Who is going to "Take" the guns? This is hyperbole designed to stir up the "dumb masses" as Boortz loved to say.
Off the subject, but why are guns legal while industrial hemp cultivation is not? I really personally have no problem with either, but one is able to do more damage than the other.
I do own guns, by the way. They are stored safely where my children cannot get their hands on them. I'm not worried about anyone "taking" them because it just ain't gonna happen.
Moore County sucks. Literally. It's sucking Montgomery County's water, it's sucking Montgomery County's Tier I status for the heart of NC Industrial Park, and now it's sucking in Montgomery County's businesses.
If the tree cutters would make their cuts according to the standards of certified arborists it would be different. As it is now, aesthetics and healthy pruning practices are the last thing to be considered. Kind of like DOT pruning roadside trees with a vertical bush hog. The poor pruning practices opens up the trees to infestations and disease.
"your way of paying for all of this is "taking" it from those few of us that are working"
I've got an idea. How about let's all pay NO taxes and see who starts screaming first?
A great local small business success story. Another great use for grant funds.
I will if someone who knows will let me know when the grant money's gone and the business is operating from profits.
I don't live in Aberdeen, but I pass through often and will pull over to buy a few groceries from a small business person who is going to help his community.
It's sad to see people complain about a local person receiving a perfectly legal grant to benefit a small town. Compare that to the tax breaks that the mega-stores get.
If the complainers were offered a grant to do something worthwhile it's a sure bet that they'd turn it down because they don't want their tax dollars to benefit their own.
Why don't we just spend it on another war? A few cheap bombs will go a long way to make life better for a small town.
Load 'em onto flat rail cars up at Dunrovin' and let the train haul 'em down to
Pinebluff and back.
