Letter to the Editor
The county is certainly in need of a blood transfusion
web posted April 4, 2006
I do not make it a habit of writing letters to the editor, but the recent opposition to bringing ANY changes into Edgefield County has set me to thinking. First it was animals--chickens, hogs, and dairy cows. Now it seems it is a race track.
Pondering this, I have come to the conclusion that the "haves" don't want the "have-nots" to have a way to make a living locally.
The county is certainly in need of a blood transfusion. We have too many empty buildings on our Main Streets. Our school needs are mind bogling. Let's wake up and smell the roses here. Without some type of economic boost, Edgefield really is ENDANGERED!!
This is a sanctioned race track with a million dollar a year budget.
Mr Rupert, I'm glad you like Edgefield, but don't try to prevent it from seeking a better economic future. I would love to see our little town busling several times a year, with excitement in the air, and businesses flurishing in all the empty store fronts. I would think you would like to see your B&B booked far ahead with CEO's etc.
I hope the good people of Northside will think long and hard before lining up to oppose this endeaver. I ask you, would Darlington or Bristol willingly give up their race tracks?
