Sandhills Area Open Thread

I'm not sure what day the Sandhills people were assigned for an open thread, but I'm putting this up today. (PS Valentine Love to all BlueNCers)

In today's Pilot Newspaper, Mat Moriarty has written another glowing article on Joe Boylan's adventures in Raleigh. Today's love letter is all about Joe's bill,

State House Rep. Joe Boylan has introduced legislation that would make Moore County its own judicial district.

The bill, one of several filed by Boylan in his first few days in office, would give the county its own District Court. Moore County is currently in a district with Montgomery and Randolph counties.

House Bill 163, Divide District Court District 19B. It has been referred to the committee on appropriations. My question to you is....is this good or bad for the people of Moore county?

I like the

way he is operating. Just throw all your bills into the grinder in the first month, watch as none of them get out of committee and get reelected because you tried.

Jail

If it means we'll get rid of the backlog in our county jail and cut back on the need for a newer or larger facility, it might be a good thing.

Where is the outrage?

WHEATON, Ill. - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s daughter was arrested this week and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and child endangerment, officials said Wednesday.

Ann S. Banaszewski, 45, of Wheaton, was arrested Monday evening while driving away from a fast-food restaurant in the suburb 20 miles west of Chicago, police said. Three children were inside Banaszewski’s van when someone called police to report a suspected intoxicated driver, said Deputy Chief Tom Meloni.

Meloni would not release Banaszewski’s blood-alcohol level. He also declined to give the children’s ages or say whether Banaszewski had a previous record.

Stupid question

Does anyone know what counties are "officially" in the Sandhills? Bladen and Robeson are I think. What about Cumberland? Hoke?

Sandhills

Not a technical definition but a working one from Sustainable Sandhills

A sustainable region was the next logical step. It was crucial for the survival of Fort Bragg to partner with the six counties - Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Moore, Richmond and Scotland (Lee and Montgomery were added in 2005 to bring the total to eight) - abutting the installation and to promote sustainability on a regional level.
