Stanfield backs funds for parks and rec

Thursday, April 4, 2013 — Although budget cuts are coming throughout the state of North Carolina, the Stanfield Commissioners voted to pass a resolution that supports keeping current funding available to parks and recreation departments across the state.

The Commissioners unanimously passed the resolution in support for the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) Thursday night inside Town Hall.

Governor Pat McCrory’s latest budget proposal would cut funding to the PARTF by 44 percent.

Mayor Kevin Barbee remarked that funding for parks and recreation is important because it can be enjoyed by everyone and is not limited to specific groups, which may be the case with other grants.

  • Smartphone kill switches are coming

    Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!
