It can't be much if it's only a $500 ( I'm assuming that is a typo) data center. Plus a total of 6.9 million in funds to only create 50 jobs. It doesn't seem like a good investment to me.

I totally agree with Kevin in Burlington, NC, every time we turn around Perdue is creating a new tax or fee for NC, Probably scared them away. I know Ive thought about leaving NC myself. It's true when they say NC is becoming the "Tax Me State".

You know, if you're going to rip off and plagiarize the last sentence of your story, at least have the decency to say you stole it from the Times-News of Burlington. You TV people are shameless and lazy.

Let VA. have Microsoft, and the loss that comes later; like Dell did here in N.C.--no need for another loss of $s. These companies do this again and again and again...they got the money to 'trick' all these dif. states as they roam from state to state.

Blessings&Prayers to all!

I have to admit that we do seem to have the dumbest Governor in the entire country.

I wonder if we can rent one for a while? Maybe grab one off ebay?
