Could Mister Rogers' neighborhood be relocated to another state?
(commented on November 20th, 2012 @ 4:43 pm)
If he really wants to move, let him. And then show him just how tough our regulators can be. Or perhaps give him a taste of it before he goes just so he will know what to expect after he's gone.

Washington considering low-income housing project for Downtown
(commented on December 11th, 2011 @ 8:47 pm)
Which other cities did the Committee study to prove this is a good idea. It does not sound like low income residents will bring the needed vitality to the downtown area. Are the owners of the buildings just trying to unload their property at the expense of the citizens of Washington, this project needs more study.

Rural Center's ineptness cost the Washington and Beaufort County taxpayer's over $200,000
(commented on July 19th, 2013 @ 3:10 pm)
Maybe Civitas can use my research find an answer to your question. Brian Balfour is using it in today's Blog - almost word for word.

Civitas was able to use the info (attachment 990 Info) that I shared with you. Both De Luca and Balfour are using it to dig deeper into the Rural Center.

"...Within hours, Pope’s office hand-delivered to Hall’s replacement the order that demanded the agency stop spending state money.

Pope wrote that the administration is considering “the further step” of seeking recovery of all state funds now held by the center, an amount that may top $100 million.

The order includes a halt to any state money going to grantees or to the center’s employees. It was not immediately clear, according to a Rural Center spokeswoman, whether the funding freeze affected Hall’s severance pay...."

An open response to Larry Britt on Al Klemm's betrayal of conservative government in Beaufort County
(commented on December 6th, 2012 @ 2:13 pm)
What a wonderful opportunity Mr. Britt has opened up to readdress Al as the self serving boob he is.

Instead of lying low and letting the dust settle, Britt has put the target right back on Al.

For the next two years Al should be objective #1....If Jay reruns in 2014 then Jay and Al will be fighting for the Britt wing votes of the RINO party...while Ed Booth sweeps the Democrats and Stan works the right and middle.

Long story short, Al has no friends and even his old allies, i.e., Jay and Britt are now rivals.
New study points to a way for economic development in Beaufort County
(commented on June 19th, 2012 @ 12:53 pm)
Cost of Doing Business in Beaufort County is Electrifying
June 19, 2012 | 08:39 AM

With respect to discussions on the city council about utility rates versus customer usage: the electric rate is overwhelmingly important.

The point of generating electricity is to make the product affordable to consumers for a wide and growing number of uses. Lower rates encourage new commercial and residential users and greater economic development in the community being served. The single best indicator of economic well being in a modern community is strong and rising use of electricity.

Electricity rates are the "elephant in the room" concerning economic development in Beaufort County. Businesses are acutely aware of all manufacturing costs. They are already actively involved in restricting needless uses of electricity at their facilities. Plant managers, manufacturing process designers, selection of efficient machines and motors which are scaled to their best need all contribute to best use of only essential KWH useage. However, various manufacturing processes do have their own most efficient and particular basic KWH requirements and that cost is controlled only by the utility rate.

Our rates are an all prevailing hurdle to our local economy. New business is deterred from locating here. Old businesses are at a disadvantage to competitors being served by lower rate utilities. Residential customers need to direct dollars to utility bills which could go to home repairs. This results in a depreciating housing stock. The distortions to the local economy are all intrusive and pervasive. No amount of EDC scheming or industrial park nonsense can overcome the burden of utility rates. What new development does come to Beaufort County seeks out areas served by alternate power providers.

While it is a service to customers to educate users as to "smart use" strategies, it is not the government or the generating company's place to discourage usage. Discouragement of usage leads to two problems:

1) As utility usage falls the limited KWH hours generated and sold become less able to spread the fixed costs of plant and equipment across a broad sales revenue base. This causes the portion of fixed costs allocated per KWH to rise, this in turn requires moth balling plant and equipment or increasing rates.

..this is a death spiral for business and for customers.

2) The logical progression for reduced customer usage through recommended thermostat settings, etc., is for the regulators to move into mandated temperature settings and then onto rationing. Regulation by central authorities replaces business and personal decision making

..this is the death spiral of the business environment.
City Council hears from new chairman of the Committee of 100
(commented on June 15th, 2012 @ 1:20 pm)
I just watched the city council addressed by Jim Chesnutt and Dot Mote. It is hysterical. Do these folks even believe this stuff themselves?

Mr. Jennings has rightly pointed out that planning needs a great deal more work than anecdotal meanderings about random data.

It is more of the same unsupported and imaginary correlations masquerading as "market studies and evidence" which led the EDC and C100 to propose industrial parks and Quick Start buildings. Notice that neither speaker made any reference to either project....better forgotten and avoided as embarrassing failures...$6,500,000 simply ignored and abandoned.

Just what is it that Mr. Thompson has laid as ground work for our future? Empty real estate? Debt? Higher taxes? $500,000 in clawbacks on grant guarantees?

After 10 years of sending $1,500,000 to salaries in Craven County, $6,500,000 to empty industrial parks and $4,000,000 to Committee of 100 favorites, the self-appointed leadership of economic development feels that Beaufort County and the City of Washington need a plan!

As to the regrettable "negativity"...what is more negative than selling of assets and reducing business exposure in a community?

National Spinning is actually divesting themselves of assets and financial exposure in Beaufort County, yet these same folks want taxpayers to accept the Committee of 100's "vision" for our future.

Mr. Thompson refused to even live here.

ARE THEY SERIOUS? You cannot make this stuff up.

Of Washington Daily News and the Mob
(commented on January 11th, 2011 @ 8:02 am)
Stan, I believe that your financial analysis only looks at the short term impact and not at the long term. The analysis should include where our health services in the County will be in 10, 20 or 30 years and how it will impact the financial wealth and well being of the County. Would choosing UHS over CHS increase the tax base by encouraging businesses and families (including retirees) to stay in or to move to Beaufort County because we had an excellent health care system that delivers high quality healthcare? Analyzing present facts is easy; trying to predict what might happen in the future and do a discounted cash flow is more difficult and requires vision. Needless to say I believe that UHS will do a better job.

Voter Fraud
(commented on March 18th, 2012 @ 9:43 pm)
Much of this great country is currently embroiled in the Voter Photo-ID question, an issue that could easily decide the results of a close election. I grew up believing that the United States was founded on certain principles that set it apart from the rest of the nations of the world. In addition to our basic rights, two of these principles stand out above the rest. The first of these tenets i...s that a person accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and the second is the right of all citizens to vote in free elections.

It has often been said that it is better to let 1,000 guilty parties go free than convict a single innocent person. Using the same premise with regard to elections, isn't it better to allow a dozen voters without IDs to cast ballots than to deny even a single person who is otherwise entitled to vote? If we are to err on this issue it should be on the side of over-inclusion, and not unjust exclusion.

Why would Gary Brinn oppose Limited Voting? Why would any Republican do so?
(commented on October 18th, 2012 @ 6:44 am)
Editor's (Beaufort Observer) response: Stan is correct in all that he says. We differ only on the obvious soft assumption that DOJ could be convinced. Not the current DOJ. Jerry Langley and David Moore would see to in one phone call. A Romney DOJ would be irrelevant because any Pre-clearance would be appealed to the DC Court of Appeals and it would be killed there, not on a constitutional issue but on the factual basis. Hood's plan of 2 minority districts and 5 at-large would address the retrogression issue but would not likely fly because it would be statistical packing with a very distorted gerrymander. But you are precisely correct, without virtually unanimous agreement among the BOC, the current system is not going to change.

Did you and Steve evaluate preferential voting?
