Trust me, Bladen County is no better. We have a by-pass in our county seat that is several miles long and our folks won't allow it to be developed because the town council has personal business interests in downtown. Meanwhile we waste millions on revitalizing downtown Elizabethtown to "keep business in Bladen." Sure, it's pretty, but really...the attitude is that of letting the rest of the county DIE in the name of keeping the downtown merchants' wallets fat. I wouldn't want to locate a major manufacturing operation anywhere near here either.
