Uneless Grant Money

Cut the fat! Not just North Carolina but all states, including the US Government.

They want to cut down on teachers and that is one of the most important departments we need to maintain. It’s not like we are leading the nation in education!

Teachers go through a four year degree to become a teachers knowing the pay is not that great but they have the desire and determination to become one only to finish school with no future due to possible reduction in the school system.

The state and federal government have certain USELESS GRANT MONEY available to all areas.

I know of a fire department that received a $60,000. grant for hanging exhaust hoses from the ceiling that automatically disconnect when the truck leaves the bay. Is that a necessity????
Sure it is nice to have, but how many years have they survived without them. Not to mention the cost to maintain them!

How about county parks? A county park was recently built with some state grant money.
Yes parks are needed, but after some fancy architect draws up some elaborate plans for the buildings you could have built twice that many buildings with the same cost.
Why do park buildings need split-faced block, laminate wood beams, etc. to be functional?

I’m sure this is only the tip of the ice burg for un-necessary state funding that goes on fruitless needs. If you think I’m right pass it on so.
