Wow, how nice to hear some good news for a change. There is a lot going on around the world and so it is refreshing to post the good news that Craven, Jones and Pamlico’s unemployment rate dropped below 10% for February, 2011. The rates appear to be improving slowly. This is the first time since 2008 that Craven County’s rate decreased in February so we have something to hang our hopes on that this trend will continue. I hope you can always find something to be grateful for in a day.
