Sandhills Open Thread Redux

North Carolina’s Sandhills is part of the Inner Coastal Plain and includes Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Moore, Richmond, and Scotland counties. It’s part of the U S Fish and Wildlife’s “Safe Harbor Program”. (Couldn’t figure out how to copy the map that shows the Sandhills region, you have to zoom on the first map on the left side of the page) Their website defines the Sandhills as being

south of Highway 24/27 in Moore county, east of Highway 220 and north of highway 74 in Richmond county; north of highways 74 and 401 in Scotland county; north of highway 401 in Hoke county; west of I-95 in Cumberland county; and south of highway 27 and west of highway 401 in Harnett county.

In my little piece of the Sandhills here in Moore County I live just inside the Small Area A which covers 100 square miles. The County Website describes it as the “”fastest growing area of Moore County”. The county has asked for volunteers to serve on this board (next meeting is February 20th at 5:30 p.m., the meeting will be at the West End Middle School Cafeteria), which I am doing. You can download a form here and volunteer to serve on this and many other boards.

With Fort Bragg at our doorstep and the realignment plans predicting another 20,000 troops added, Moore County is just beginning with the struggle of growth.

The rest of the Sandhills, Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Richmond and Scotland Counties I leave to those who live there. It’s up to you to tell us about your area.

Hope this is Fresh enough for ya... :)

Thought I would clear up the question of "Where is the Sandhills" first before we get into the many concerns of our area.

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Thanks...

The term is thrown around without definition. The map clears it up completely. So, now that I know I'm not in the Sandhills, I need to determine where I am. (Basically the intersection of Bladen, Robeson, and Cumberland Cos.)

You're still in the Inner Coastal Plain

Since you are that close, we should adopt you into the Sandhills group!

Woo Hoo......Love it

Short, sweet and I learned something new. You're awesome. :) I don't think we have anyone from Scotland, but I can tell you they had huge Dem early voting turnout.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I am so excited about this. I'm brining name tags for anyone who wants them, just like the ones I brought to Chapel Hill.
