We just wanted to document your tax money being spent. Time will be the judge if it was wise or not. But we want to document for the record. Just to give credit, some info here are clips from the online version of the Tribune. Since Tabor City NC Town Management does not keep an adequate website to document their comments, grants, wasted money and lies. We will use the Tribune to document it for you.
So lets get started. RJ Corman said in the Tribune they spent 3 Million of their own money. Shown here, they got 9.8 Million (from you) to do some work. Then they get another 17.5 Million from you. That gets them to a whopping 25 mph. That’s not fast enough to make money. They need to get to maybe 55mph. Based on the MILLIONS they already got from you, I’m assuming they will need another 35 Million from you to get to 55mph (again of your money).
So looking around Columbus County, what could RJ Corman possibly haul to justify 50 or 60 million dollars of your tax money. Count ‘em up. I dare you.
Here’s my prediction. Unless there is a major industrial revolution in Columbus County, this will be MILLIONS of your tax dollars down the drain. And just as a reminder, your country is $22 Trillion in debt right now.
Assuming there are around 3500 people in Tabor City NC, at $60,000,000, they could have written everyone in town a check for over $17,000. I’d rather have the check. How about you? That would really boost the local economy!
The images above are lightboxed and if you click on them they will expand for easy reading. We give the Tabor City NC Tribune credit for these screen shots of their paper, which we paid for. And we are not profiting from these images. This is “fair use”.
Tabor City NC, located in Columbus County, home of the historical COLCOR. Seems corruption runs in the countys water. Located near Myrtle Beach, SC and Brunswick County home of some great beachs like Ocean Isle and Sunset.
Tabor City NC, near Loris SC which is in Horry County. Tabor City Elections were crazy, now the Columbus County Board of Elections is knee deep in it.
Town Manager and the Mayor have been in office ‘way to long’. Time for some new people to take over. Collusion with corporations has driven them to the point they no longer care about regular folks, like Wall Street and Pete’s Circle. Home values wrecked, no peace, no quiet. The lack of respect is immoral.
Tabor City NC is located next to Loris, SC and close to Myrtle Beach,SC. Tabor City NC host the Yam Festival. Tabor City NC is in North Carolina. Tabor City NC is close to South Carolina. Tabor City NC has a Town Hall. Tabor City NC is run by a corrupt town manager and mayor. Tabor City NC is close to Fair Bluff, NC. Tabor City is close to Whiteville, NC. Tabor City NC, North Carolina.
Here is a project using $800,000 of your tax money to renovate an old building on 5th street for a “business incubator”. With the town manager stating that “there is no available space left in Tabor City for new business opportunities".
So I’m guessing all the closed up, boarded up buildings around town don’t count?
So where does the town manager live? Has he driven through town and looked?

Elections coming later this year
Images to here show industrial, shipping and trucking, very loud equipment that runs all day every day, and huge apartment complexes..
They also show a “SITE” sign which indicates their next project. Most likely a low income senior housing complex.
All over town, land and lots are being converted into projects that will DISTROY your property values. I want to point out that you don’t see these happening anywhere near the town managers home? How about the mayor? I’m sure there's a good reason.
But here’s the point. YOU can keep voting for these same folks that don’t care about your property, your peace and quiet OR you can run for office or at least vote for someone new!
It’s our homes and streets today, question is, when will it be your street?
Tabor City NC - Big Trucks spew out nitrogen dioxide (NO2). NO2 according to the EPA website causes: breathing problems, asthma, respiratory infections. Lung.org says NO2 is the cause of asthma in children. And the worst of all, it’s a carcinogen, which means it causes cancer.
See these yard trucks the corporation uses, not sure the exact title. They are the least regulated of all semi trucks, that means they spew more pollution than newer semi trucks. As if some is not enough, these spew more. Do you know what the train uses for fuel? Same as these trucks, just more.
See the image that looks like a chart? That is from a pollution monitor that we purchased from Plume Labs. See around 8:00 in the morning the pollution ramps up until late afternoon. This is from our monitoring on Wall St in Tabor City, NC. I’ll gamble to bet that the same results or similar will be found along 5th Street, Pireway Rd, Pete Circle and around all the corporation facilities.
So taking your kid to school, your kid playing at school, your kid walking around outside near any of the corporation trucking facilities/lanes will expose you to a lot of NO2. If you drive one of these trucks, if you work on the loading dock, you are getting exposed to large doses of NO2.
NO2 will make you sick. NO2 can cause cancer. So if they allowed these facilities, allowed this massive expansion of truck traffic, they brought the railroad back, that means they accepted the pollution and the health of you and your children for money. I’m guessing it was 13 pieces of silver.
Tabor City NC - See if you can count up all the closed businesses/buildings, just as a reminder of what your town management has done for the local economy and the local people.
You understand that large corporations might pay a salary to an employee, most of the profits don’t stay in Tabor City, they go back to the corporate headquarters. For example, Walmart might pay you $10 per hour, but the BIG money goes back to Bentonville, AR. That’s just the way it works.
Illegal to use public vehicles, equipment and resources for private property purposes.
Not corruption- Illegal
Maybe? This plot of land belongs to a private citizen. Not to the town or the towns tax payers. Here you see a town owned, wait let me clear this up for you, a tractor owned by you the tax payers, mowing private property. And this is not the only location where this happens. It’s happening in multiple locations.
Well, it might seem weird on the surface, except all the land we see getting mowed for free has one thing in common. It’s owned by very rich people, millionaires. If you google “columbus county gis” you find the owner of this lot.
But you need to understand the impact. These are a few cases of things we’ve found, how many do we not know about. How much of your tax money is being spent to help people that are already rich?
