Bill Sahadi talks to Ellie Collins, John Arnold and Kevin Smith about Moore County’s contribution to the Occupy Wall Street movement. On December 10 at the Downtown Park in Southern Pines, Occupy Moore will consider Occupy Wall Street issues from a distinctly Moore County perspective. The event will focus on economic, election and education issues with local experts and speakers from nonpartisan groups like the NAACP, Democracy NC and The League of Women Voters. The event will also feature live acoustic music from some very talented local musicians. For more information on Occupy Moore, you can visit the website, www.occupymoore.webs.com.
