Welcome to Catawba County, a wonderful community in the foothills of North Carolina that is within an hour of some of the most beautiful outdoor places and metropolitan locations in the state.
But why leave the county?
There seems to be lots of hoopla going on these days about the dire straits of athletics at Maiden High School.
For a few years it seemed as if Blue Devil athletics were on a declining trend struggling to regain the glories of past seasons. In all the debate over coaching, everyone has overlooked what this bunch of kids has accomplished.
Editor's note: The following letter to Catawba County Schools Superintendent Glenn Barger was shared with The Observer News Enterprise.
As a resident of Maiden and a taxpayer in Catawba County, I along with most of the Maiden High School district want to know what is going on with our football coach, and it is OUR coach since this is our community.
As a native of Catawba County, I would like to voice my support for Barbara Beatty for Catawba County Commissioner. Barbara Beatty has worked tirelessly for the citizens of Catawba County. She provides great constitutent service and works to find solutions to all citizens concerns-large and small.
I am writing in response to the editorial written by Thomas S. Kern III (â€śMarriage amendment not about discrimination,â€ť The O-N-E, May 3).
The marriage amendment is not about or intended to discriminate. It is about preserving and protecting an institution that has existed for almost thousands of years.
