Financial Difficulties Voiced About Center Sixth Grader Views RMSH By Richard Gurganus Over the past few weeks there has been much excitement over a proposed civic center for Rocky Mount. The civic center which would cost about 3.5 million dollars and seat 3,500 people, could provide recreation and cultural activities for Rocky Mount citizens. The big question is, “where is the money going to come from?” Mayor Fred Turnage said he doubted that the citizens of Rocky Mount would approve I was wondering what it would be like when I get to Senior High. I think the exams there would be very hard and complicated. I think the average student would study about an hour for an exam. I wish the exams would be one page, but there will probably be about five or six. I think the teachers would have to be kind’ve strict to have a good class. I think they would give out a lot of D.T.’s. I think the principal would be black and have a straight face and kind of, chubby. I think there are about 700 students at Senior High. The Seniors probably get to eat lunch where they want. There are about seven periods. I think the cafeteria food would be cold, because it probably came from another place. I think the average student would have a friendly and joking personality. People probably get there in the morning and back home in the afternoon many different ways. All in all, I think I will have a fun time when I get there. RAPER DRUGS a tax increase, and he added that he would definitely not call for a bond issue because two bond issues worth $8000,000 have recently been approved. The need for a new city hall was cited by Turnage who felt that the city hall and the civic center would put a strain on financing. Turnage said that there had been little public enthusiasm that would make the city council consider the civic center. “Chances are much greater for private investment with perhaps federal or county help,” Turnage added. There are arguments for the center, dealing largely with the economic boost it would give Rocky Mount. Wilbur Rose, chairman of the Nash County Industrial Development Com mission, said that the civic center would bring in some of the income lost from tourism when Interstate 1-95 is complet ed. Theo Pitt, chairman of the Central City Revitalization corporation said the civic center would upgrade a declining tax base in downtown Rocky Mount. John A.
