Stay tuned Carnell is scheduled to appear on Express Yourself with Reuben Blackwell and Tony Stephens Monday July 23 at 6:00 PM.
Dunn leader: Pull up pants or pay – WRAL
Did you know?
Sources say a special call meeting was called today in Princeville saying it was going to be the regular monthly meeting but when the members arrived it was said it was a workshop. However some questioned how was it a workshop when no work was done.
Sources say Maggie Boyd interim Town Manager was suppose to read the budget statement in full concerning the budget which included a tax increase, water/sewer increase and trash pickup increase. They think the Mayor probably told her not to read that part because everyone would know and scream. I am assuming those who read the paper because they didn’t know about the meeting.
Sources say Boyd was asked what is a debt service and she said it was something they use when the town are in debt. They say she was asked what was the human services line and she said it was for human services.
Sources say citizens and reporters should have gotten a copy if they wanted to be prepared for the public hearing. This way there will be no time to change it.
Sources say the regular monthly meeting has been moved from Monday, July 23, 2012 to Monday July 30, 2012. This is to take care of the 10 day public notice that must happen to present the budget to the citizens.
But what happened to probationary period that began Tuesday July 10 and will end on Tuesday, July 24? I would assume the deadline was set because they were suppose to meet on Monday July 23. Obviously they are asking LGC to move their deadline to Tuesday July 31.
The best thing they could do is to go on with the meeting next Monday July 23 so that they can have another week to deal with issues before July 31. But they think they are so smart.
Citizens of Princeville you better start asking some questions. From what I understand LGC didn’t ask them to do increases but that is something they said they would do on their own.
It looks like the Princeville 3 is in over their damn heads.
So will Victor Marrow file a lawsuit against them for slander? Oh that may be coming soon.
So there you have live and in full color from The DCN News Blog/Online TV the first in news in Edgecombe County.

And see my response:
Curmilus Butch Dancy II So that "boy" speaks for you because damn if he speaks for me.
I will never get over race as long as it is more than one race living in this world. What in the hell is it to get over? Please explain.
Getting over race? How ignant!
Anyone who has a problem with talking about race will have a problem dealing with issues that concerns a person of a different race.
Please respond if you will.

CARY — Wake County students are dealing with longer bus rides in the new school year because of a transportation plan that cuts costs by putting fewer buses on the road to serve more riders.
Some families at the year-round schools that started this week are seeing bus rides of 75 minutes or more to schools that are less than two miles from home. School officials say they’re working to streamline the routes to reduce times. But they concede that, on average, students will be riding the bus longer than they did last school year. (More)
