Trump decries immigrants from ‘shithole countries’ coming to US – CNN

The Watch Dog response: Nothing surprises me that this guy says. The folk that continue to support this guy got to feel some type of way. Folk don’t call these countries ‘shithole countries’ but say the countries that ignant call ‘shithole.’ To refer to these countries as ‘shithole’ as he did and then if he read it he could say oh well you call them the ‘shithole.’ That guy is the ‘shithole!’

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump expressed frustration behind closed doors with people coming to the US from “shithole countries,” sources told CNN on Thursday.

One of the sources briefed on the Thursday Oval Office meeting with lawmakers confirmed Trump asked, “Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?”

A person familiar with the meeting said Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and South Carolina GOP Sen.

A Moment In Education: Rocky Mount Haters

The haters in Rocky Mount that current live there or have moved a way why are you just mad?

You haters keep talking about Rocky Mount is just a bad place to live, work and play. Really!

I find it quite interesting that ya’ll continue to hate when construction continue downtown and throughout the city. New businesses continue to open and/or relocate.

The haters keep talking about crime. Crime in Rocky Mount is no different than crime in other areas.

The problem is the haters continue to mislead folk with half-trues putting out mess that ain’t right especially on WHIG-TV, Community Council and Rocky Mount Telegram via comments be it following articles, Letters to Editors and Speak Up. The haters do not know how the Rocky Mount Government works. They don’t do any homework just get sound bites from the sources I just mentioned.

Folk stop listening to the haters without doing your own research but all means listen to them so you can see who the haters.

Jan. 10, 2018 (252) 972-1333
Work begins on sewer outfall 
Rocky Mount, N.C.-Part of the 5.1-mile sewer outfall that runs from the Fire Training Grounds at 955 Atlantic Ave. to the Tar River Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant near the intersection of NC 97 and Cool Spring Road is undergoing rehabilitation. The Public Works and Water Resources department is overseeing the rehabilitation of 2,000 feet of the 54-in pipe, which transports sewage to the plant for treatment.
The contractor, Layne Inliner, has crews working, weather permitting, to reline the concrete pipe. If all goes as planned, the relining work should be completed by the end of this week.  The work to rehabilitate the manholes and related infrastructure has started this week and will likely extend into next week. 
As part of this work, bypass pumps have been installed at Stith Talbert Park, the Fire Training Grounds, the NC 97 Pump Station and the treatment plant. The contractor will be on site 24 hours a day to ensure that these pumps are operating as intended.
Pumps equipped with sound reduction features will be used at Stith Talbert Park to help minimize sound related concerns for residents in the area. The project is expected to last three weeks or less, depending on the weather.
