WINTERVILLE — Sitting in the first pew of St. Paul M.B. Church of Winterville, the Rev. James Whitehead said there are times he can’t get water to the church because of the limited supply in his community.
“We have a well, but it doesn’t do us any good when the water is low,” he said. “We are right in the middle of all this farm land, and when the farmers are irrigating or cutting crops, we don’t stand a chance. We can’t get any water for our bathrooms — and that’s just not sanitary.”
