Backwoods comment

I take exception with someone from Columbus County calling it backwoods! While I now live in Wilmington, my hometown is in Columbus County. Wway didn't call it backwoods, you did! This leads me to believe that you think that about your community. Shame on you. Instead of criticizing, why don't you volunteer your time or money to improve your surroundings.

As far as the educational resources, I can say that I received an excellent education while growing up there. I was well prepared to succeed in college and graduate school. I moved on to have a successful well paying and satisfying career. I know many folks that have done the same.

So, if you want to use the term backwoods as an adjective, use it while looking in the mirror.
