Cheers … to the Board of Education for coming up with a creative solution to the missed days from the snowpocalypse that descended on Rutherford County in February.
Jeers … to the thieves and vandals who have sacked the old Ruth School.
Our detractors are waiting. So, too, are our allies.
United States action, or lack thereof, will trigger the planet’s dominos even while the real battle is between Russia and Ukraine. Our full-time role as the world’s policeman is yet again center stage.
It may seem like a lot of money to put down but, in the end, it may be well worth it.
Monday, the Rutherford County Commission approved spending $100,000 of county funds to match nearly $800,000 in grants to generate economic development possibilities.
It was $310,000 that could have been used in other places.
Cheers ... to Matt Blackwell and the EDC for snagging a new business for the county. Team Air will invest over $4 million in the county and will create 70 new jobs paying well above the county's current average salary.
Jeers … to individuals who commit senseless acts of vandalism and theft. Sadly these crimes are often carried out against institutions such as churches, schools, and community centers ... the very places that would gladly help the malcontents if they would only walk-in the front door rather than break-in a side window.
