Stanly County Commission meets new lawyer for ALCOA suit

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 — In a strange coincidence, Stanly County Commission met with its new legal counsel for the ALCOA cases Tuesday night just as a neighboring county was giving the company a “thumbs up” of sorts.

The meeting had only one regular item agenda and there were only four people in attendance outside of the commission and staff.

Those four were two members of the media, a deputy sheriff and S.C. Kitchen of the Turrentine Law Firm.

As seems to be a normal part of the commission’s meetings as of late, the members met in closed session after the regular business was finished.

However, this closed session lasted for only minutes and after it was over, Chairman Gene McIntyre introduced Kitchen to the media.

For more on Tuesday night's meeting and how Davidson County plays into ALCOA developments, see Thursday's SNAP.

  • 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.
