“One Heck of a Guy” blogger Allan Showalter has done it again.
Applying his advanced sense of humor to the efforts by Cary Village President Steve Lamal (who calls himself “Mayor”…did you know village presidents got a law passed allowing them to call themselves “Mayor?” Thanks to a municipal attorney for cluing me in.) and village trustees to approve a gravel pit west of the Fox Trails subdivision to match the one south of the development, approved by the Village of Algonquin has resulted in an article longer than this run-on sentence.
(I blame my convoluted sentences on having taken German.)
In any event, Showalter thoroughly examines the Cary gravel pit opponents’ “chamber of commerce” video and decides it’s worthy of
“While it’s painful to admit, I’m unable to camouflage the fact that this post falls into the do-good and community-oriented classifications.”
“Oddly, the residents of Cary, particularly those with homes near the company- picked site – an area zoned for residential use only – are not unanimously in favor of the proposal. Some, in fact, are perversely opposed to a mine operating across the street.”
You should really watch the videos, prepared by Cary’s Bruce Janu:
the 4 minute and 12 second one about the threat, viewed 789 times and
the 7 minute and 34 seconds one “chamber of commerce” one, viewed 515 times.
