Darlington Raceway officials recently announced that the race has an economic impact of over $54 million; we feel we are fortunate to have the race and were excited to hear it brings in so much revenue.
Alma shares this feedback:
Alma, to me it's never been about the noise. In fact, personally I love seeing all the bikes, and the race cars. The thing that bothers me is the people who come here with complete disrespect for our communities. You know, the debauchery, public sex acts, leaving restaurants and convenience stores without paying for their service. Other than that I love seeing all the bikers and appreciate the money generated by the events and welcome the bikers who respect our communities and the people who live here.
And finally, regarding our suggestion that we need a no-smoking policy and increased cigarette taxes in the Carolinas, Robert wrote:
Robert, here's one thing I can guarantee: you're exactly right when you say not everyone at the station agrees with these Viewpoints. And there are many people who have the same opinion you share regarding smoking policies. From seeing the positive results in state's who have enacted statewide smoking bans we do believe it would be best to have a statewide ban rather than a hodgepodge of bans in various cities across the Carolinas.
