The driven snow is not so pure these days

Okay, enough already with the foul weather. Where is that “mild” climate all the social studies books use when referring to North Carolina? As I write this, most forecasts were calling for a nice temperature to start Monday, following a balmy Sunday, before ice/sleet/snow was to blow in by Monday afternoon.
As a friend in the Midwest told me last week, “What’s going on in North Carolina? If you guys want 17 degrees, come on out to Iowa and stop messing around.”

Sometimes the “thinking has already been done”

Nashville lost yet another iconic figure last week, Betsy Fuller.
Betsy owned and operated Valentine Fuller Antiques in downtown Nashville from 1987 up until around 2010 when she decided it was time to retire. She closed the doors quietly as Betsy was never one to seek the spotlight. She served Nashville in many ways outside of being a long-time merchant. She was a cheerleader of downtown and always encouraged other merchants.

As an assistant coach for the SNHS grid squad, Robbie Kennedy understands the value of the sport to the school.
But he also surmises that football and basketball can co-exist at SN -- just like they do at other schools.
