I was disappointed to read that the Live After 5 concert series will be moved off-site from the village to the Arboretum. Seeing people converge into the village for special events is a benefit to the local businesses and makes all of us feel part of the special community that is Pinehurst. It’s energizing, vibrant and creates a “heartbeat” for the village.

I understand that events take time and effort to set up by staff, police and others who are employed by Pinehurst taxpayers and business owners. It sounds like the work to hold this event downtown, drawing hundreds of locals, is no longer worth the effort to our local administration.

Pinehurst's Village Council is obsessed with pursuing solutions looking for problems. And it also appears that village staff is obsessed with trampling the will of those who voted council members into office. But let not your hearts be troubled: the 2023 elections for mayor and two council seats are going to bring about a new era of accountability during which a number of village staffers will be looking for jobs.
