Anyone know anything about Salisbury, N.C.?

    Sounds like a country/folk song — but my fiance and I are considering a move to the city.

    I've never known a person to willingly order or eat a salisbury steak that wasn't on their school lunch tray or $1 TV dinner.

    It's an hour or so from Charlotte, closer to High Point and Greensboro. Catawba College is there. Nice climate, nice area. Not real exciting.

    It's about 20 miles from where I grew up. Not too exciting, but a nice place. It's the hometown of Food Lion and Cheerwine, and about 10 miles to the north you can get a tasty BarBQue sammich from Monk's in Lexington. 8)

    Other than that, I got nothin'.

    If it's for the paper, the guys in sports there are pretty nice.

    The home city of Food Lion is not exactly a ringing endorsement in my book.

    The humidity will kill you in July and August, but other than that really nice place.
    As said early, home of Food Lion and Catawba College. The town has a ton of millionares because of Food Lion stock. Catawba has a great DII football stadium. Salisbury has plenty of places to eat. The bar at the Holiday Inn is pretty nice for a Holiday Inn bar. The Holiday Inn is also home to the Broadcasters Hall of Fame for some reason.

    The proximity is really good to plenty of locations.

    There were some tensions a couple of years back with students killed in an incident between Catawba and Livingstone College. The Salisbury Post does a good job of covering DII athletics.

    Thanks for the info, doesn't seem like that bad of a place. Now, what about the paper?

    Haven't read the Salisbury Post in many, many years.

    In the long-ago era when I knew their sports guys, they would not have known from Bertolt Brecht.
    But my esteemed institution of higher learning, located less than an hour south of Salisbury, once put on what I recall as an excellent production of "Caucasian Chalk Circle."
    This probably isn't much help, but it's all I've got.
