“What kind of backyard is this?” asked Ja’Leah Whitehead, a seven-year-old Princeville resident, as she walked down partially flooded streets of Tarboro. “It’s more like a swimming pool!” She jumped over puddles and asked her older cousins, Jeremiah Sellers, 9, and Elijah Sellers, 12, for piggy-back rides.

Malfunctioning gate discovered at Tar River Reservoir – Rocky Mount NC

The Watch Dog response: What folk need to be focused on is getting back to normal whatever that is. For me it is to use all the resources that are and will be available to them to get back to their homes.

What folk don’t need to be worrying about is the floodgates because even if they wanted to open the gates they could have but I ain’t going to get into that.

Folk if there was a problem with the floodgates the Town of Princeville and their resources will deal with that, that is a governmental issue.

Folk you better be worrying about getting back in your home and then you can deal with other issues if their be any but don’t get caught up in mess that you have no control over. The water has come and gone so now FLOOD RECOVERY is the issue.

The DIKE did it’s job. The water came around the dike.

Folk don’t need to be worrying about if the Town of Princeville is going to rebuild and other you need to let the town and their resources deal with that.

What you need to do is to focus on getting back because your insurance companies and other will be watching what you say and do. It is like suing an employer you have to say you want your job back in order to make the suit real whether you want to go back to the job or not.

What I am having a problem with is folk who have been through this and/or very much familiar with the process need to help folk who are suffering now to focus on the main thing.

I have received calls from Florida, Greensboro and other talking about what is Princeville going to do by it being a historic town. Well I tell them to focus on the folk getting back home and the historic piece will work itself out.

I know some folk don’t want to hear it but then again the numerous folk I have talked to understand they have to be patient.

This is just my ignant opinion and if anyone don’t want to hear it then delete me because I refuse to allow people to mislead folk when I know what I know.
