Sources Say Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates Business Padlocked Saturday

Dang! Sources say Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates Business padlocked just a few days after her attorney saying he is going to file a $240 million lawsuit against the NC State Auditor, 2 Princeville Commissioners and others.

I did ride by the location and there is nothing in the main street property beside Piggly Wiggly and the old Big Jims.

Big sign out front about property open for lease.

Could share more about what sources say but so good want to keep it to myself.

Well wonder what will be the next chapter?

Rocky Mount NC – Yes, The Location Of The Downtown Community Facility Has Been Named


I am so glad The Downtown Community Facility location has been named. Now it appears that it will happen and the construction will maybe begin soon.

I commend all the council members except the one that voted against it for their support of the vision to make Rocky Mount a better place to live, work and play.

There are some folk who never have wanted and do not want to see Rocky Mount especially on the Edgecombe County side of town have anything. So it is too bad that when the center is up and rolling and bringing much money to the area, I guess the naysayers will be praying that it don’t last. Well I believe, (my opinion) that this is going to be a great thing for Rocky Mount and down east.

Read about it “Officials announce location for event center” what the Rocky Mount Telegram posted about the Rocky Mount City Council meeting on yesterday. I could not be there however I did speak to Bronson Williams and one council member.

I love it!

Former county commissioner, community activist Bishop Randy Royal dead at 63 – WITN 7

A former county commissioner and a community activist in Pitt County has died.

Bishop Randy Royal passed away Sunday from continued complications from a stroke he had in 2005. He was 63 years old.

The New Bern native became pastor of the Philippi Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ in 1982, and helped grow the church to more than 2500 members.

He served one term on the Pitt County Board of Commissioners, and was also on the Pitt County Memorial Hospital board as well as on the county health board. (Source: Read more)

Princeville Town Hall Meeting

The meeting went well however I could not understand why a couple of commissioners voted against having a Princeville’s Founders Day. It will not cost the town a dime. Yes I know the speed bump and some other issues are very important, I don’t get it when the solution is this need to be done first. Well why the commissioners can’t work on all of the things? A board of commissioners must be able to multi-task. 

I understand the plea for speed bumps on Otis Avenue and was compared to where the mayor lives however Otis Avenue is a long stretch versus a cuddle sack. I believe the solution to dealing with the speed issue will be taken care of.

A former commissioner spoke during public comments and I think he just wanted to hear himself talk. He talked about the attorney not being there and he walked in. He talked about when will LGC turn the books back over to Princeville and that question was answered. He talked about filing a complaint against the town manager and talking about he had witnesses. What? Happened after the last month’s meeting and you come to this meeting talking you gonna file a complaint. Crazy! File the damn thang! Probably has no validity so therefore he has not filed it.

Overall a very good meeting carried out without much drama.

Well as I always say, look at the meeting for yourself and put your own spin on it.
