Federal money thats great.

Federal money thats great. Pender county commissioners should just do like brunwick county commissioners tax and tax` then add a fire fee thats attached to your property tax. Then you will see nice new 12000 square foot buildings and $500.000 trucks all the while firemen will get no pay. Thats the way it is in brunswick county maybe pender should follow.

Mr. PORK himself is like a

Mr. PORK himself is like a little kid with his hand in the cookie jar, he talks a good game but he just can't get it out of his system to keep doling out taxpayer dollars at a time when the private sector is drowning in government debt, is there any way to get them message into those democratic politicians, we want to get spending under control before it sinks what is left of this ship.

Good news

Nice job Mike McIntyre.
Good for Surf City.

Of course if you are against spending money perhaps we need to look at Homeland security's budget for potential cuts, as they hand out money like it was candy.
But Mike secured a portion for NC - which is what he's supposed to do.



Where's the big card board check, I love those big card board checks.

So much for all that

So much for all that sequester disater talk.
