…DOT workshop provides forum for traffic circle opinion
I think a stoplight would be the answer as well as dropping the speed limit! I would hate to see all the mass confusion a traffic circle out in a dark country intersection would produce. The traffic circle would be a lot more expensive for the taxpayers as well as seeing Grahams Grocery perhaps having to close? More money for the NC DOT…..it took us 4 yrs to get speed limit sign put in our development. Imagine how many years this project would take!!!
of course she thinks itís ěa step in the right direction!î ..cause thatís what she wants.
1/2 million $$ is a lot of money to spend on a roundabout. What a waste of tax payer$ $.
… Really makes you wonder what kind of pull some people have. If they think sighting is a problem here, they should have ěsafety concernsî for the intersections at Sherrills Ford Rd. and 801…
From topsy turvee:
Something also should be done further down Sherrills Ford at 801. Iím not thrilled about the roundabout, but at least it will slow down traffic and minimize the danger when unalert drivers (including drivers under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or diabetes) smash into other vehicles.
… Coach Scott Young suffers heart attack
From Angela Benfield Harkey:
Our thoughts and prayers are with Coach Young and his wonderful family. He is a good man and a wonderful baseball coach as well as football!
All the best to coach Young and his family. Not only is he a great coach, but anyone who has listed to his postgame comments on the field know what a gracious man he is. Get well soon!
My heart and prayers go out to the Young family. As a former football coach at Salisbury and South Rowan we played Coach Young many times. He is a fierce competitor on the field he will fight through this too, get well quick Coach Young!

… Reservists doubt they will be home by year end
From Hunter Shue:
God bless you guys (and gals)- hurry up and come on home!
YOU MEAN THE PRESIDENT LIED!!!!!!!! No that canít be, he wouldnít do that!
No, Obama wouldnít lie about the end of the war anymore than Bush lied about the causes for it in the first place. Our government lies to us and we tend to forgive them or not based upon political preferences when, in reality, we should be holding all of our elected officials to a much higher standard. They have peoplesí lives in their control. Whether Republican or Democrat they should govern ethically and honestly or be held accountable.
… Medical care $5,896 a year per inmate
From Michael Trangaris:
While educating children is a choice we make providing inmate healthcare is a constitutional mandate. The figures are skewed because we are unware of true distribution; who gets what when. It is convenient to think we can release the ěnondangerous inmatesî but many of these inmates have proven then are a perpetual nuisance and menace in society. The bottom line is there is no easy answers short of a constitutional ammendment.
From Brittney Plowman:
I think it as kind of crazy that we spend more money on inmates then on children in schools. We cut education budgets but can pay almost $6,000 per inmate? This must be the No Inmate Left Behind Act, more money should go to students and teachers. We should invest in our children and their future because when it comes down to it they are the future of our country and world.
