    Citizen, please put the crack pipe down for a minute and explain to us sober people what a festival in crumbling downtown Williamston has to do with what the BOE has done to education in this County. Please, enlighten us about how this "social healing" event will go on toward helping us to all get along. By the way, exactly how many NEW courses and opportunities have been brought about by this school thing. They still can't come up with enough computers to even fill the needs of one class, even though they have closed 2 schools and saved us all of that money they were spending on maintaining BG and Jamesville. Truly, you have a dizzying intellect. Don't worry, my eyes have always been open, but at least my brain is connected to them.

    I've been attending this event for years. Every year it drops down.I understand the vendor fees went up so high that several vendors couldn't attend.There were no candy apples,no cotton candy.The variety of foods was very disturbing.What does the vendor fees pay for any way? I heard a lot of people complaining about it.I think too much emphasis is put on the music. You must have something to keep the people there.People have to why not broaden the choices of food items.I saw some chicken on a stick that looked pretty good, til I saw the price...$9.00. My wallet can't afford those prices.One scoop of ice cream was $3.00 and it was a SMALL flat scoop. I don't know what's happening to this, but If it doesn't improve it should be discontinued. I don't care what the papers say it was like. They'll make it sound like it was the biggest success ever. The truth is it WAS NOT GOOD !!

    "citicen", the county doesn't. This is primarily a Williamston, Farm Life thing. You will see people from other parts of the county but far and away a minority. Has-been entertainment, mediocre food and a high dependence on corporate dollars tell the tale here.

    It amazes me how Martin County can get together for an event like this every year...but they CAN'T solve the problems that they have with the schools...Pitiful.This should open some eyes.
