Chief Carter has been a firefighter in Mocksville since 1988 and has served as Chief since 2003. Over the last decade especially he has worked tirelessly, but quietly, improving the department for [...]

Spring is Here!


Spring is here! The Popsicle Run and Shamrock 5k are behind us, so now we can ease into warmer weather. I would have liked to see a bit more snow over the winter months but am glad that we didn’t have to deal with icy roads and school closings that would push the end of the school year further into the summer months. We actually had a fairly mild winter. Be sure to keep a close eye on the calendar for all the events happening over the next several months. There are concerts, festivals, movies in the park, and many other [...]

Budgeting for Mocksville’s Future


I have fond memories as a kid of saving money from my paper route and odd jobs for things my parents would not buy. This meant giving up comic books, sodas and other things I may have had an immediate desire to have in order to reach my goal. Back in 1982 that goal was to own a black leather jacket and it took months to save the money. I have to admit that I looked cool in that jacket though. Experiences like this one taught me that goals are within our grasp when we work hard and exercise fiscal discipline. [...]
