September 14, 2010

Dreams for a newly renovated fire department and town hall in Catawba went up in smoke Monday.
Catawba Town Council voted unanimously Monday night to postpone its town hall and fire department construction projects indefinitely.
“I think we’ve all determined that we can’t afford to do this project without a tax increase, and no one wants that,” said Catawba Mayor Vance Readling. “The only way we have to pay for it is the taxes; that’s all we’ve got.”

Summer is almost over, but Amanda Burke’s grandchildren haven’t spent much time outdoors.
Burke said mosquitoes, rats, snakes and other pests from an unmaintained lot beside her father’s house on 110 N. Fourth Ave. in Maiden prevent her family from going outside and enjoying the warm weather.
“If it would have been kept up, it wouldn’t have gotten this bad,” Burke said.
Burke’s grandchildren, ages 4, 2 and 6 months, come back inside with numerous mosquito bites every time they go outside.
