Thank you, John Webster, for your article regarding Pinehurst growth. Instead of more growth, why not take care of the existing problems with traffic at the circle, N.C. 5 and heavy traffic on Linden Road. Large delivery vehicles have a hard time and cannot sit in line at the circle.

Yes, it was beautiful in the early years and even in the 1970s, 80s and early 90s. Now? It’s more people, more vehicles, more accidents.

And as for N.C. 5, the problem is the backup at the golf cart crossing. When this was done and questioned, we were told, “No problem, this is only a temporary situation until we make a decision to go over or under the road.” How many years does it take to make this decision?

Yes, golf and tourists are a very important part of Pinehurst, but so are we residents. We pay taxes, we support businesses, we assist in keeping Pinehurst inviting for tourists.

Please slow down and let us enjoy what we have.

Um, most of the "golfers" you cite crossing the road are "residents".
