Commission hears transportation plan

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 — Stanly County Commission met for a very short and uneventful meeting at their second Monday night session of the month.

The major topic was the subject of different road alignments that could bypass the communities in western Stanly County.

Dana Stoogenke, director of the Rocky River Rural Planning Organization, said the plans for any changes in the roadways “are still in the beginning stages.”

“We have been meeting for awhile in the focus group about the alignments around the western part of the county and the NCDOT staff wanted me to talk to all the jurisdictions about their preferences,” Strooken said.

She explained there was no official action sought from the commission because there was no final plan to put before them.

  • Do White Castle prices tell us anything about the minimum wage?

    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.
