I have an great idea for you. Instead of telling the successful what MORE they can do for the community, why don't you do something yourself?
Amen brother, I couldn't agree more.

robert and guido ,
yeah i have done alot for myself , i paid for my house and all my cars and harleys and boats
and paid for it all and did not have to do it with credit i,ve never had to borrow money , i,ve always had money but i don,t make a big deal out of it

can you say anything you have is paid for thru hard work and sweat no lets see , robert you wouldn,t know what work was if it kicked you in the ass and you more than likely got on your knees and begged some bank to pleaseee loan me money to buy a house

remember moron , until you have that note in your hand your a home debtor, not a home owner

guido , i don,t know about you , i,am going to give you a pass because you seem okay to me

alright , dixon ,

you ask what i would have done to keep jobs here or bring jobs here .

well for your information i have been going up to lake norman , huntersville , denver , and mooresville every weekend and sometimes during the week and talking to people about expanding their businesses down here these people are from new york and new jersey and they are interested but what happens in the next few months with the economy will determine their decisions they have money and it would be no problem for them to set something up down here in a hurry

the point you seem to miss is each council member and the mayor should go out and beat the bushes to find new businesses to set up shop here

there is no excuse for not finding something

what about the company that wants to build a police car here in north carolina

well the old burligton industries building on eagle rd is big enough for that i know i used to work their when i was in high school

and the mayor should be on the phone tomorrow to try and get something like that that would be a 1000 jobs that this town could really use and i,am sure there,s someone who could move in the old stowe spinning and stowe mills buildings

the council is not doing their job by not trying to draw businesses here

so you see , dixon you don,t know as much as you think you do

yeah charlie flowers has made alot of bad votes too and i lay them at his feet as well

i hammered him just as hard as i hammered you in the banner during the last election , but charlie learned something you didn,t , listen to the people , listen to the people .

charlie did and that is why he is still on the council he listened about what the hell is going to be done about schools and the police and the fire dept we don,t even have a ladder truck and when you were on the council did you vote to allow martha stowes husband to build those houses on keener blvd ??????

well don,t you think they are too dam close , if one catches fire they all go up and all those houses are too dam close that should be agains,t city code

you will not change , you are pro development and alot of the people in belmont are not !!!!

and rob , you would be lucky if you were a uneducated redneck crybaby . instead your just a stupid ass punk homedebtor who thinks he,s someone , your only problem is your no one !!!

Mr. Harley,
One can't be antidevelopment and pro-jobs at the same time. Businesses look to locate in areas who have pro-business governments and modern facilities in which to operate. Most old mill buildings have wood floors and low ceiling heights. That is usually not conducive to modern manufacturing. Also it is difficult in this environment to get bank or private financing. Just wishing for something doesn't make it happen. You need to talk to some people who know the score.

mr stowe

you seem to misunderstand me on what i was saying

yes you can be anti-developement and pro jobs at the same time now i know the plans for seven oaks farm are going to happen no matter what any body says or does,, that,s just set in stone but the last time i checked the old burligton industries building does not have wooden floors at least it didn,t 35 yr,s ago when i was in high school and i worked their after school and i don,t believe the mill that you just closed down a few weeks ago has wooden floors i don,t know i,ve never been in that building but when it comes to buildings like the old stowe spinning and the sterling plant yeah your right , it would not make sense for a company to relocate in those buildings

as far as me being anti-developement i don,t see the need to just keep building and building houses that are going to sit empty for years to come look at belmont reserve and eagle park there are way more houses empty than are sold and yes i know irl dixon gave a reason for the slump in those sales

but until the economy gets back on it,s feet and people learn to live within their means and not buy more than they can afford to pay for then houses will continue to sit empty and i and alot of people here just don,t see the reasoning in the rush to keep building

why keep building when there are no buyers ?????

That's AN uneducated redneck crybaby. Not A uneducated redneck crybaby.
Maybe you should take on a little bit of debt and go back to school? Just a suggestion.

i respectfully disagree robert. i think he would have have devised a more creative solution that would have presevered seven oaks and the historic plantation house. there's no doubt the plantation house could no be part of the gardens and no reason the gardens could not buy it from the family. it would be a fabulous art museum, textile museum, or special events facility. that house is simply amazing and i would like your best price on it and the approx 4-7 acres it's on, if you plan to sell it too?

have you ever considered vineyards at seven oaks?

wineries are not only in vogue, they are very profitable these days.

acreage in a semi-urban setting such as yours, is a scarce commodity these days and your land is worth more than i think you realize. if i were in your shoes, oh, the possibilities that i could see..

sell out now in a recession? you would have to pull my last tooth! lol!

so much for minding my own business :)

If you are interested in purchasing the house and have $500000 of after tax income per year to maintain it please give me a call. Your post name is hardly accurate.
I was asking about the Mercantile if you double check.

I do not have that much money in my account, but you can for damn sure bet I'm the root of my wealth...can you say that?

Thanks for playing Trustafarian!

Hey Dipwad. The Stowe's have preserved 700+ acres in our community in perpetuity. It's called Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Is that not enough for you?
I have an great idea for you. Instead of telling the successful what MORE they can do for the community, why don't you get off your fat ass and do something yourself?
If it was for the community it would be free dipwad! At least for those in Gaston County.

That's like saying I'm going to open a strip club in downtown Belmont "for the community" but it's really because I like boobs and that's what I chosen for my legacy.

Surely the land is paid for!

I did know your uncle and I grasped his passion for place and history evidenced by his actions, not his words. He valued things different than most of us, including yourself. It wasn't all about the almighty dollar with Dan, it was much more intrinsic with him.
