Is farming a high-tech industry?

My paternal grandfather was a farmer in Ohio. He raised a variety of crops, but hogs were his bread and butter. In southwestern Ohio, hogs were big business a century ago. In fact, at one time Cincinnati – where I was born – was known as “Porkopolis.” Farmers like my grandfather drove their hogs from outlying farms to the packing houses in the city.

Roads can’t keep pace with development

In my way of thinking, Cleveland Road near N.C. 42 in the Cleveland community should not be heavily congested during the morning and evening commutes. It seems to me that when the state opened Interstate 40 from Raleigh to Wilmington, it would have immediately begun planning and setting aside money for the widening of Cleveland Road from N.C. 50 to at least Barber Mill Road.
