Monday Open Line


We hope everyone had a great weekend.  We went to watch NC State baseball Saturday and enjoyed the great weather.

A bill has been introduced in our state legislature to create a Root Out Poverty task force. The bill aims to fund this task force with $300,000 for it’s first year to the Department of Health and Human Services.  The purpose of the task force is to hire 2 new personnel positions in that Department dedicated to interdepartmental collaboration among State agencies, departments, and institutions to advance poverty reduction and economic recovery in the State.   Is this a good idea?  What do you think they would find when visiting our county?

In other news, could it really be, Osama bin Laden is dead?  Now what?
