Down the River Road

Without a doubt, we are a very festive people here in the Yadkin Valley. We have festivals for wine, for pumpkins, for fiddles, for farming, for leaves, for apples, for a television show, for a deep-dish pie…you get the idea.But is there room for more? Of course there is, and I have a few suggestions for some new festivals.

What follows is an accounting of where Elkin town leaders place their allegiance and loyalty in a poor economy that is here to stay for a painful, lengthy span of time. You, the readers, must decide if these revelations constitute frugal spending in difficult times. Those responsible for the public’s funds do not consult the same dictionary that I do in defining thrift and economy.Her...
