Amanda Lamb has seen the effects of domestic violence firsthand.
As a reporter for WRAL, she has covered the issue for over 20 years and has interviewed many people who have either witnessed domestic violence or been victims themselves.

In response to a request by Middlesex Christmas parade organizer Cindy Ridgway, Middlesex commissioners voted on Monday night to convert the annual Middlesex Christmas parade to a town-sponsored event.

However, Ridgway had expressed concerns over possible liability and insurance issues and felt that it would be best for the town to sponsor the event if it were to continue.
