YOUNGSVILLE — Members of Franklin County’s Committee of 100 are optimistic that the area’s economy is poised for a turnaround.
During the business organization’s annual banquet on Thursday night, area educators said they are focused on providing the workforce they believe will attract industry to this region.
Should this one be filed under: 1) What were they thinking? 2) Are they nuts? or, 3) No good deed goes unpunished?
Whichever answer you’ve selected is probably the right one, but the details of a brewing controversy in Florida show just how well-intended regulations can run amuck.
Way to go, Wake Forest.
At least the Wake Forest Parks and Recreation Committee!

GOOD MORNING: Add another 5.5 inches of rainfall to the 3.8 inches we received a few days earlier this week and you’ll come close to erasing our September rainfall deficit.
I’ll be frank with you, however, although I was aware that we had probably received quite a bit of rain during the night Wednesday, I was totally unprepared for the sight that greeted me when I drove down to the mailbox to get the morning paper shortly after 5 a.m. Thursday and found the bottom on both sides of my driveway under water - a sight I haven’t seen in a long time.
