Letter: Put the money where it's needed

To the editor:

I don't understand. According to recent headlines, Lenoir is "busted."

People in Gamewell can go to work in Hickory (where the jobs are) via the bypass from N.C. 18 to U.S. 321 at Rooster Bush. People in Lower Creek leave N.C. 18 and exit at Lowe's. We have these lanes in place. Yet, we are spending millions of dollars in materials and man-hours on the "cloverleaf to nowhere."

What can't some of those wasted dollars be used on the infrastructure of Lenoir?
