Stanfield announces environmental pick up days

Thursday, October 4, 2012 — With Mayor Kevin Barbee and Commissioner Larry Sides both absent, the remaining commissioners and administration of Stanfield met Thursday evening, voting on a number of items, while announcing key dates for the town's citizens.

As all municipalities within the county work to maintain a visibly appealing environment, trash and debris can seem to overwhelm their efforts. To help alleviate that struggle, while urging citizens to refrain from littering and dumping on the town's property, Stanfield announced their public pick up days.

The first leaf pick up was announced for Nov. 6, with the others following on Dec. 4 and Jan. 8, 2013.

White goods, such as appliances and scrap metal, should be placed out for pick up on March 12, 2013.

Brown and bulky goods such as furniture and television sets are slated to be picked up on April 9.

The final pick up days are set for each Tuesday in April, as the town will be collecting loose limbs.

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
