Tie-breaker vote needed at Board of Education meeting

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 — Chairman Melvin Poole of the Stanly County Board of Education was required to cast his vote to break a tie at Tuesday’s regular board meeting.

The vote was on whether or not to reimburse the Endy PTO for $3,500. The organization recently purchased and installed playground equipment.

A representative from the Endy PTO appeared before the facilities committee at an earlier date and made the request which was brought before the board Tuesday night by Board Member Grant Allen. The request had already been approved by the finance committee when it was brought to the board.

The Endy PTO raised over $11,000 for their playground equipment, and only requested a partial amount for reimbursement.

    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.
