Pike County Emergency Services will continue the tradition of a Fourth of July parade through downtown Zebulon on Monday. The theme of the parade is 'In Memory of 9/11' and entries are needed to showcase Pike’s pride in America’s independence.
With all the budget issues that plague the county how is it feasible for the county to sponsor a parade? When will the general public realize that government is not in the business of entertainment? I am still flabbergasted about the movie in the park thing and I hope that idea fads real fast, if it already hasn’t. With the current state of the economy every American Citizen ought to have more personal accountability and less reliance on Uncle Sam.
The only cost of the parade is the gas used in the vehicles. Most of the vehicles will belong to private citizens. Celebrating America's independence is worth a few dollars in gas. God Bless America! Hope to see everyone out there!
You did not think out what you had to say before you said it. Like 2 said most of the vehicles are private citizens paying for their own gas celebrating this great holiday. Nobody wants you at the movies either. Flabbergasted? LOL wow
Hello!!!! It is the principle and you don’t get it. Fuel cost money for the fire service and for the extra patrol cars along with extras like wear and tear etc. I know it is hard for idiot savants to comprehend but I thought I would try. I didn’t realize there were some many governmental dependant leaches in Pike, “My Bad.”
It is not a shack. Quite comfortable, central air, 2 1/2 baths and best of all the property taxes were paid last year in full. But we will still give you a ride to the parade if your dad's truck still has no tag and insurance.
Nothing like getting early for a good spot and then having a big truck pull up to the intersection, park in the road, and ruin the view. Fat grandmother with fat kids scrambled for the candy. They blocked the view too.
