Marijuana - Maxton, NC

In my opinion, it should have been legalized 40 years ago! Alcohol was legalized and of course taxed! Alcohol is one of the top 5 killers in the country! Regulating the sale and use of marijuana; controlling the strength would benefit every taxpayer in country. This is a multi-billion dollar business that is not taxed! Nontaxable income in the trillions per year is made without any benefit to John and Jane Q Public! We need the money to pay for the many social programs, create jobs, not be World Police! The use of the drug has pros and cons, but people still buy it, whether legal or illegal, people go to prison for sale, use and transfer, people are killed, etc. If this drug was legalized, the results would be so overwhelming it would make every citizen angry. Think of the money we would save eliminating the marijuana as a crime the agencies could spend more time dealing with the cocaine and meth sales and use. I also realize that there will be some that will still sell marijuana (just like cigars and cigarettes)but they will not be able to compete with the regulated prices. Economy has been so bad in the past 8 years (or longer) I am willing to support legalizing marijuana as soon as possible so that I can see the tax dollars rolling in to reduce the country's debt!  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #11)

Maxton mayor loses reelection bid

Congratulations to the winners of the elections held in the Town of Maxton! The official count of provisional votes will be held Monday and the results will be the response of the citizens of Maxton. The unknown paid political ad caused a stir with the election board, however it was determined to be an oversight and procedures have been implemented to ensure that this does not occur again! The old Maxton High School Gymn is still being used for storage of school supplies! This facility and land for some reason never been utilized to benefit the citizens of Maxton, especially the youth!  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #1)

Marketing

BMW keeps certain ads from black media: Rev. Jesse Jackso...

This is an automobile, something that depreciates in value each year. These expensive autos are mostly leased in fleet to corporations and provided to their corporate officers, execs, secretaries (you know why she gets one). This is a perk. After the lease up, it is returned to the be classified as "certified " (another word for not being New). Example: 2 yr old high end auto selling for 55K, originally cost 80K, with the principal, interest, taxes added to the total cost will be 80K or more. I see so many high-end cars in low income areas than in the estates. If you keep them long enough you will have replaced all the working parts because they are replaced like parts in an airplane. If you can't make planes you make BMW. I wasted enough time on this smoke screen anyway. BUY AMERICAN, try and keep the money and jobs here, this is what we really need.  (Aug 31, 2009 | post #85)

Aaron McEachin - Up and Coming Prep Football Player

As I was reminded, Robert played for Maxton High School Eagles as a Defensive Back, which was the first integrated football team in the history of Maxton, NC. Now, Aaron is playing two positions, Running Back and Defensive Back and playing them well. This is an indication of being a chip off the old block.  (Sep 16, 2008 | post #2)

Fire Rages, Burns Homes Near Fairfield

I have passed the vacant lot where the fire began, and have wondered why the lot had been neglected for so long. The grass was (and still in areas not consumed by fire) over 3 feet high. I was getting a haircut and one of the barbers saw the flames and said, I just saw a car leave that area. The barber called 911 as we all walked out to observe the small brush fire. Little did we know at that time what the brush fire would become! The fire trucks arrived and we thought it would be over. The fire was out in the brush area and some of the trucks began returning to Travis AFB. The brush fire started again and began to scorch the storage area walls, a few minutes later more trucks arrived and we could see the roofs and one of the vacant houses burning. I now truly understand how difficult it is to fight flames that strengthen by strong winds. More sirens were heard from a distance, help was coming, Cordelia, Vacaville, Benicia, Napa Marked Fire Engines and the Solano Emergency Mobile Center! I proceeded to return home and on my way west bound 80, more emergency vehicles and fire trucks going east bound to assist the other firefighters. I checked the internet news on about 1730 to discover that 40 vacant homes were destroyed, then 120, this morning it was totalled at 80. I thought about the fire that was on Highway 12 a few months ago (an associate's personal vehicle along with an unknow number of vehicles)was destroyed in the church parking lot), That fire started in a vacant lot! How many more vacant lots, houses, buildings, etc. pose the same threat! What can be done to ensure that this will not happen again! Fortunately, no one lost their lives or their homes. Kudos to all the local firefighters, police officers, TAFB security forces & police, TAFB FD, and to the other departments that provided their services from other neighboring cities.  (Aug 17, 2008 | post #2)

NC Teen Wants to Wear Sacred Eagle Feathers at Graduation

I grew up Maxton with the knowledge that Pembroke was the "Town of Native Americans", had a Native American College, now a University! Pembroke is Native American,every Locklear, Hunt, Chavis, etc. (can't remember all the names used) should stand up and recognize! Remember the mistake made years ago, do not add this one. Just like in California, we had to vote to keep English as the official language; almost had to learn to read and write spanish! This is a no brainer!  (Jun 19, 2008 | post #2)
