County Commission Meeting, April 2

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 — The Stanly County Board of Commissioners met Tuesday night instead of their normal meeting date on the first Monday of the month. The reason for the move was that Commissioner Peter Ascuitto held prior engagements with the April Fools Run.

Sharon Scott, director for Stanly County’s department of Social Services,  appeared before the board and requested that the Commission recognize April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.

“We planted our pinwheel garden today... Thats one pinwheel for every child reported to have suffered abuse,” said Scott.

She read a proclamation before the board and, further, called on the community to help increase awareness and efforts in preventing child abuse.

The commissioners unanimously voted to pass the proclamation declaring April Child Abuse Prevention Month.

    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.
