According to your Feb. 22 story about the Quarter-Cent Sales Tax for Education Committee, the committee chairman, Dr. Max Walser, is characterizing the new tax as “an additional 25 cents on a $100 purchase.”
I am writing this because of an observation I made at the Thomasville High School football game on Nov. 1. I am so heavy hearted for the players who were treated so disrespectful on that night.
Thomasville has blessed me beyond measure. I have been overwhelmed and surrounded with love in various forms: phone calls, cards, thoughts, visits, donations and prayers.
North Davidson High School, a school that was originally built for approximately 700 students, has expanded to an enrollment of more than 1,500 students. Ledford High School, which was originally built for a similar number of students, now has an enrollment of over 1,200.
Everyone who lives in Davidson County should once again be proud of our elected officials. I remember a number of years ago when I traveled out of the county, my friends and people that I met were anxious to talk about one of our own who rode around in a spider car and carrying a big stick . Since that time being from Davidson County has attracted little attention.
