.. Germans ... Developer Waits On County
(Continued From Page IB)
Germany has one of the best edu cated work forces, he said, whereas North Carolina and South Caro Ii na rank as the 43rd and 46th states, respectively, in adult illiteracy in the United States,
James Schriner, a vice president with PHII Fantus, a consultant that helped BMW pick a site, said even many American companies still assume everybody talks slow, they're dumb - and do they even wear shoes?”
Another benefit for the German companies is the low labor costs, and the loyalty of the workers in the Carolinas. “The workers are very loyal,” says Willy Ruefen adit, Helima Helvetion’s president In New York, ask some one to come in on a Saturday (to take care of extra workloads) and they'll say, ‘You’re crazy!’ ”
Most likely the main reason German companies have decided to locate plants in the Carolinas, particularly in South Carolina, has to do with plain old hard sell by the host states.
South Carolina doled out generous incentive packages, as well as marketing itself as a low wage and low cost state. I^ast year, for instance. it offered BMW $130 million, including $71 million in tax breaks - one of the most lavish incentive plans ever offered to attract a foreign car plant, McCarthy states.
South Carolina bought the land for the plant site and agreed to get a runway extended at Greenvilie-Spartanburg Airport to enable it to bring in big cargo planes, the arti cie stated And on top of the benefits Ger mans see in the Carolinas, the ad justment Carolinas workers will have to make to the Germans is also of interest, McCarthy notes.
He states. Germans don't often sit weir’ with the half-million Americans who work for them.

on the larger tract, but is demanding the right to use the 2.9 acres as he sees fit, including the location of a convenience store.
After Tuesday night’s approval of the Butler measure, Moore expressed outrage and shock that the county council would pass the ordinance without allowing Lacey a chance to present his case or weigh the legal consequences.
Moore also condemned the county's refusal to issue a building permit for the 2 9 acres despite repeat-
In the original zoning map ap proved last fall, the property had Been assigned residential status
cd requests from Lacey Withholding of the permit is one of the grounds for the lawsuit.
The rezoning of the land from commercial to residential use was ordered by the county council despite the property being classified commercial in a fringe area zoning map that went into effect on March I.
but was changed back to its commercial designation on third reading at the request of Lacey
When the fringe area zoning map and development standards law went into effect March I, commercial classification was reserved for the two tracts.
That led Moore to maintain at a hearing on April 20 that the county was violating its own ordinances by changing the classification. He said zoning changes cannot be made within 12 months after a new zoning classification goes into effect
Moore said he was "utterly amazed” that the county council would proceed with second reading of the ordinance despite not havin proper legal grounds to do so, an especially by violating its own zon ing laws.

Eations. After Charlie moved, he egan building homes and farming But then inspiration struck. He picked up the phone and dialed his brother’s number.
“He called one day and said, ‘Charlie, stop what you’re doing. Come on up here and let’s compost chicken manure.’ ”
But it wasn’t quite that simple. The brothers spent nearly a year researching, constructing the processing facility and composting the first 200-300 tons of manure.
The Affords do all the work — and in the process put in around 70 hours per week each, Charlie said. He has become the unofficial salesman of the team. Steve, with the aid of a front-end loader and a combination shredder/bagger, packs the material for distribution. Both of the brothers help with delivery.
And so far they are thrilled with the reception they’ve received from the agribusiness community and with their product.
“All of this has been a learning experience for us,” Charlie said.
The end result is that the brothers have created a a much needed
