Have you visited the beach at the Bertie County’s Tall Glass of Water Project?  It started gaining steam back in 2019.  I’ve linked to the Bertie County page above.  It tells all about the project and I encourage you to go and read about it for yourself.  I got so interested in it, I took a quick trip out to take a look for myself. In my opinion, it looks like it could be a great start to a good thing.

However, I must mention a few things that you might need to be aware of.

Things that made me go…Hmmm

  1. The GPS is slightly off if you are using it to travel to the location.  And signage could be better.  I drove smooth past the entrance when I saw a little graveled road and the GPS said I had farther to go to get there. 
  2. The gravel road.  Big rocks. One and a quarter lane.  Which means you have to share the road going in and coming out. It wasn’t a difficult maneuver, but was still a little awkward.
  3. Parking.  There is a big grassy field where you park… much like some makeshift concert secondary parking; but it was doable. 
  4. The actual beach fronts.  Country is what country does. 😎  This actually reminded me more of a cove situation. In some places you had more space to put beach chairs and what not, but in all situations, the shore was narrow.  There were rusted engine blocks and tires—which made for good exploration and adventure, but Nags Head twin… it was not. 🙂☺

But, I can say that there were a good number of people out there having a great time, and more were coming in as I was leaving.  I think this will be a well-used beach/water access.  Congratulations to the project planners!  And I look forward to many more great things.  I took pictures!

The 2022 Official Primary Election Results – Bertie

Are you interested in learning about results for your primary local elections? You can see the results for your area by conducting a similar search as I did for Bertie County. There is a great deal of information available! And, don’t forget… Vote in the general election in November!!!

Remember, voting for those who are supportive of your concerns will help get resources, funding and assistance to you and your community. For too long, crooked politicians who are in the pockets of big business (in my opinion REPUBLICANS …and yes some Democrats), have been working against you and your interests. You want better roads and infrastructure? You have to vote for those who will work for you and not work against you in the service of corporations and other entities that are quick to say “government is bad“, but are the first in line to receive government contracts and other benefits. It’s time for a change. And you can influence those changes with your vote! I recommend voting for #Progressives in November 2022!

Public Hearing… My first post for The Bertie Lantern 2021

Comments are closed.

I have had my site and a page dedicated to Bertie County information up for a while… just hadn’t  had the energy to search for content or decide how to post it.  So, finally, I decided to just do it.

I found this information about a  Public Hearing on the Bertie County FY 2021-2022 Budget on a site and decided to make this my first post.    See the excerpt below.  The hearing is scheduled for Monday, June 14, 2021 a 6:00 p.m.

Budgets are pretty important to a community, and  so are board meetings.  AS MUCH AS I CAN, I’ll start updating this page to reflect events, meetings, etc.  If you’d like to help, then send your information to me via a site message or Facebook.  I think this could be a great thing!

Why It’s Important to Vote

Comments are closed.

People sometimes think that their votes really don’t make a difference.  They see the “system” as being crooked and unfair.  The rich get richer–while the poor continue to suffer.

Though that seems to be the outcome a great percentage of the time; your vote DOES matter, and most definitely counts.  You can look at progress made over the years and see how voting for issues and demanding change carries the day.  Even though sometimes, it can be a long, hard and slow process.

This is the first of several articles where we will discuss the reasons why voting is important and processes you can employ to make change in your community and local government.  Then, reflect those same changes in your state and federal government.

But first, let’s think locally.  Are Read More
