North Laurel center has too many bells and whistles

Letter to the Editor

July 20, 2011

I was taken aback when I saw the new buildings and recreational center on Whiskey Bottom Road. I can understand the need for a new building, but why so elaborate?

Our property values have fallen so much, but our tax values stay the same or go up. Our politicians need to appreciate where the money comes from and only take what is absolutely necessary.

We have a beautiful county with farmland and beautiful historical sites. Money should be put back into keeping what is naturally beautiful and not these elaborate buildings that only a portion of the county's residents ever see.

Just because money has moved into our county doesn't mean we need all these big-money improvements.
