The Daily Reflector

Thursday, January 24, 2008

A national collaborative founded by Colin Powell to nurture America's youth today named Pitt County one of the nation's 100 best communities for young people.

America's Promise Alliance and Capital One Thursday announced the county has been named a winner in a national competition honoring the 100 best communities for young people to grow up.

Citing the county's ability to unite different sectors to work on behalf of its young people, officials picked Pitt from more than 750 participants in 300 communities that applied.

"The prosperity of every community and this country depends on how well we care for our children and youth," Marguerite W. Kondracke, president and CEO of America's Promise Alliance, said. "Although no place is perfect, when we have communities that make young people a priority and are working to make sure they stay in school and have all the resources necessary to lead healthy, productive lives, we must recognize them and by extension inspire other cities and towns to follow their lead."

Winners and participants in the third annual competition are eligible to apply for $300,000 in grants from the group beginning next month.

The group's partners include corporations, nonprofit service organizations, foundations, policymakers, advocacy organizations and faith groups – work collaboratively to ensure that it's "Five Promises" are kept for America's young people.

The promises include caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, effective education and opportunities to help others.

Communities completed an application based upon research from the National Academies of Science, Search Institute, Academy for Educational Development and Child Trends.

Officials submitted information on how their existing programs and initiatives help deliver the five promises.

Winners were chosen by a panel of judges including civic, business and nonprofit leaders.

Dear Mr. Tingen,

     Let me take a moment to tell you of our “Pistol Tingen Team” experience.

     Jody Tingen was our agent; we looked at a house of interest on March 19th, put a contract on the property March 20th, and Jody guided and reassured us through a few of the “usual” negotiations over the next week.  Post the home inspections, which were put together by the very capable Rebecca Taylor, all repairs were done by the 6th of April!  We closed as scheduled without a single glitch on April 11th.  Did you count the days?  Just 24 days from first sight to closing!  It was all painless and easy!!

     Jody and Rebecca did an exemplary job, from start to finish. Any time we contacted either of them, they made us feel we were their only customers (I know we weren’t).  Their demeanor was always pleasant, reassuring, and professional.  Their responses were prompt, via phone or e-mail.

     This was not the only house we had looked at with Jody—along the way he continued to encourage us that we would find the house that would suit us.  Jody worked with us regarding schedules and phone calls outside of usual business hours (we currently live in Pamlico County).  We really appreciate the dedication Jody and Rebecca displayed.

     You can certainly be proud of your “Team”.  Thank you for a job well done and a pleasant experience overall.  We will recommend your services in the future.

Sincerely,

Susan Koepp and Dick Jacksland

 

FYI...Following Jody’s recommendations, we also had the pleasure of working with Wanda Hager of Dover Mortgage, Danny Harrington, Pestech, Jim’s Liquid Waste, and Jeffery Mathis.

P.S.  Thank you for taking care of setting up our new account with Eastern Pines Water Corporation, enclosed is a check for the $55.00.

Southwest Bypass

by Pistol Tingen

The Department of Transportation Team has made it's selection from the three potential routes for the Southwest Bypass. The route selected - Corridor 4 - will connect N.C. 11 south of Ayden with the U.S. 264 Bypass in Greenville. This corridor swings farther west than the other two options and bypasses Greenville, Winterville and Ayden. The Bypass will supposedly relieve growing congestion on Memorial Drive while having the least impact on homes, wetlands and streams. It will however impact approximately 120 acres of the Renston Historic District and 42 homes.

Department of Transportation officials plan to start right-of-way acquisitions in 2009 and construction sometime after 2013.
