Inside today’s edition you will find Insight 2014, a compilation of work that we hope you will enjoy and find informative.
A staple of the Independent’s array of publications, Insight 2014 takes a look at Sampson County: On the Cutting Edge, whether in government, industry, business, agriculture, education or within the community.
Thumbing through the edition, you will likely be amazed at how advanced our county is. There’s Sampson Regional Medical Center’s Wound Care Center that uses some of the latest technology to allow residents to have their wounds treated right here at home; and then there’s all the crime-fighting technology that local law enforcement agencies use — everything from tasers equipped with video capability to a GPS mapping system that allows for tracking of officer vehicles and tracking of traffic stops; and you can read about advances in agriculture, from how extension agents assist farmers and local gardeners to the way Sampson Community College is growing its students’ knowledge of the latest ag technology.
And that just scratches the surface of the information available in the 36-page edition.
Within the four sections are varied offerings we hope will whet most any appetite, feeding the hunger for valuable tidbits about on our wonderful county and the way it continues to grow.
Paired with the myriad staff-written stories and in-depth columns written by leaders within Sampson County is dozens upon dozens of ads which detail everything from products being offered to budgetary information. We encourage you to peruse each ad and to frequent the many advertising sponsors who have, year after year, supported our annual edition.
