Randolph County Board: No Money For Pottery Center

The Randolph County commissioner who urged the panel not to give $25,000 to the struggling North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove is also a member of the center's board.

The president of the center's board said Wednesday that commissioner Phil Kemp is a member of the center's board and expressed support for the center at the board's last meeting in August.

Chairman Tim Blackburn said the center had not counted on the county's money, which was contingent on the center becoming a state museum in the last legislative session. But that didn't happen.

The Courier-Tribune of Asheboro reported that at the commissioners' meeting Tuesday, Kemp said the center's board had been less than civil in its dealings with the county.

    On it's face the article sounds like more starving artists looking for tax payer money to keep them from starving. There are really not enough details here to be sure. They should probably seek funding from the NEA before McCain/Palin eliminate it.LOL.
