Thoughts While Shaving for July 2

The Annual July 4th Sidewalk Sale is underway in Elizabethtown … Shop outside and inside with local merchants. … No idea how long this event has been held … but a long time.

Don’t know of any place around better equipped to have such an event and good food galore. … Shop ’til your hearts content, then enjoy a delicious snack or a meal … great variety.

If you are new to the area, visitor or resident, come see for yourself.

Thinking back over the years of retail outlets, some great promoters … no longer here … Fowler Simmons, Parker Farris, Mann’s Department Store, Dossenback’s, Vann Electric, DeVane Jewlers, Western Auto, Corbett’s Men Store, Bladen Ace Hardware, Clark-Jessup, all no longer on the scene, and I have named only a few … Still great businesses. … I know I missed several … Memory is fading. … Oh, yes … Belks, but they departed the scene years before the first sidewalk sale.

Charlotte and Mecklenburg recently announced a Fortune 500 company, Centene Corp., coming to that area … Average wage $100,189, a billion dollar investment, 2,590 new jobs in the area, and they received $465.5 million in incentives.

Help me understand … Why would you ‘defund’ law enforcement? Dang, I want law enforcement funded, good law enforcement … weed out the bad duds, but don’t cut the staff…

July 4th weekend fast approaching … different this year but, still a good reason to visit the local lakes … White, Jones, Bay Tree, Singletary … to mention a few. … Be Safe…
