    The Moore County Board of Commissioners held their September 4, 2012, meeting at the old courthouse in Carthage beginning at 5:00 P.M. The first item on the agenda was a new item regarding the redrawing of the emergency response districts of Seven Lakes and West End. Citizen concerns over a couple of recent events in which the response times were deemed unacceptable were cause for concern and complaints by the citizens of Seven Lakes. The Council moved and voted to address this issue as a new item first on the agenda. The county emergency response staff first presented the reorganization and new dispatch areas, along with the reasons for the reorganization. They also reviewed the historical data regarding emergency calls and response performance. This was followed by a public hearing where several residents spoke in opposition to the new dispatch areas. The Commission appeared to resolve the issue to the satisfaction and applause of the audience. The Commission held a public hearing - no one spoke. Next came employee service recognitions and approval of the consent agenda. The County Planning Staff presented the final draft of the Working Lands Protection Plan with a history of the process. A discussion followed among and between the Commissioners and Staff. One speaker from the public at large, Peggy Smetana, spoke. The Commission approved the Working Lands Protection Plan with the condition that one change would be made: The plan will specify that any property owner considering a conservation easement must be fully informed and warned of the permanent consequences (e.g. greatly reduced land value, reduced salability, potential effects on retirement planning, and impact on heirs) before they are allowed to voluntarily engage in such surrenders of private property rights. An extensive report on space planning and needs was then given to the Commission. The report contained good and bad news. The good news is that most of the County Departments' space needs for the long term can be met with simple rearrangements and refurbishments of existing buildings. However, the bad news is that construction of a new judicial building must be planned and started relatively soon which will require a County investment of approximately $35M including interest. With the impending construction of a new high school, there will be considerable new capital expenditure pressures on the County budget in the coming years. The Commission had a somewhat spirited discussion regarding the Carriage Oaks properties and the Carthage War Memorial. The Commission decided with a split vote to continue with the committee appointed at the last meeting, chaired by Commissioner Melton, which will hammer out the details. The overall agreement is to grant the VFW and County joint ownership of the land on which the War Memorial is currently located as well as the adjacent property on Carriage Oaks. The County will provide all maintenance and insurance for the properties and operation of the Memorial for as long as the properties are used as a War Memorial. No construction is to take place on the grassed property adjacent to the existing Hardee's restaurant. Should the properties ever cease to be used as a War Memorial, full ownership is to revert to the County. After handling several equipment purchase and lease decisions, as well as two appointment decisions, the Commission finally adjourned.

The video of the entire meeting below is approximately 3 hours and 3 minutes in length.

        • The Future of London Theatre - Professor Anthony Field

          John Maynard Keynes was asked how he saw the future and replied “The future is not seen, it is made”. However, you cannot make the future when dealing with something conceived out of passion. Thus, the future of London Theatre - whether buildings or productions – cannot be planned because they represent the substance of faith. So let us examine why drama has never been destroyed and, since early Greek and Roman times, has outlived the very civilisations that produced it... The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-future-of-london-theatre Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There is currently nearly 1,500 lectures free to access or download from the website.

            Nach einer kleinen Wartezeit ist ein Relikt aus Urzeiten der Fachschaft Jura aufgetaucht! Es gibt tatsächlich noch Beweise für eine studentische Westendparty mit einem Schankverlust von 45%..... und jeder Menge schlechter Frisuren. Auf dem Video waren neben Bildern von Musel, Jepe mit Goldohring und wirklich schlechter Frisur, auch seltenes Material von Sgt. Coldfire in schwarzen Lederjeans und tanzend! Na klar, Wiebke, der Hase, Lars K., Kessika, Fränk, Felix und diverse andere Gesalten halten ihre Nasen ins Bild. Ich glaube Thomas hat einen treibenden Part, Jean Claude ist auch dabei. Mit anderen Worten: Guckt es Euch an, 56 Minuten Hardcore, echte Gefühle!
