Homegoing Celebration For Ms. Annie Lee Randolph Pinetops NC

My condolences goes out to Alphonso, Earl, Ada and the entire family of the late Annie Lee Randolph Pinetops, NC.

I have been knowing Ms. Annie Lee nearly all of my life. We used to live in the same community from the time I was growing up until the flood came. I used to do her garden.

What a rejoicing time 92 years young. God has been good to the children to have had a mother to live so long. And the good thing about it, the children were there for her all of their lives also. Now she is in God’s care.

Event center awaits funding – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Watch Dog response: This will be great for Rocky Mount and surrounding areas. I totally agree with Tom Betts this just makes a whole of sense.

Even though officials are in a stall pattern awaiting news of funding for the proposed downtown community facility, residents continue to debate the merits of the estimated $32 million project.

“I am very much in favor of it,” said longtime city resident Tom Betts. “I was initially opposed to it, but when they changed the emphasis to athletics it made a whole lot of sense to me. It doesn’t take a genius to look at what has happened with the success of the Sports Complex and realize the intelligence of the project.”

Few residents question the wisdom of building the Sports Complex with its annual direct economic impact of more than $9 million, but Rocky Mount Mayor David Combs said before the city developed the complex, officials didn’t do even a fraction of the due diligence current staff is undertaking for the downtown community facility.
