Life without the Twinkie? That's wrong. Just wrong.
I love this story. In "other" locations an incident such as this would be tied up in litigation for months. In Robbins, it happened, it was fixed, and everyone moved on. A good lesson.
This is a terrific and very attainable idea! A hundred bucks is a small price to pay for a classic venue that provides something for just about everyone in this town. I can't imagine Southern Pines without it!
Love that story! I realize that we have many - regularly packed - chain restaurants, but I much prefer to give my business to our fine local establishments. It just feels like the right thing to do.
Does anyone have any accurate information regarding the status of Kohl's and Buffalo Wild Wings? I haven't heard anything about either of them lately.
This is the worst of the worst as far as the fears of a parent. I hope that somehow, some way some peace comes to this family. I ache for them during this time. The little guy never even made it to kindergarten. Hug your loved ones today. There are no guarantees in this life.
Let's see if I have this straight...
The area has a beautiful new Food Lion. It's extremely convenient, but I have yet to see it crowded. It also has roughly eight adjacent storefronts - none of which appear to be occupied. In addition, a new Harris Teeter is under construction. AND, the "toy" traffic circle is supposed to handle the increased traffic? I guess someone thinks there is a need and market for this. Please.
I first saw Sam Bush along with New Grass Revival in the coffee house at App State in the mid-seventies. Their music was unlike anything I had heard. He continues to be an amazing, vital talent who hasn't lost an ounce of energy. If you ever get a chance, treat yourself to an evening of his music. You'll feel better for it.
You know, the beauty of this place is that it comes darned close to having something for everyone. Films, opera, theater, live music, or other events are available virtually every night of the year. The concerts are top notch and the movie experience is far superior to that of a large cinema complex. You can actually relax with a glass of wine and see a compelling film without the hassle of fighting for parking and waiting in a ticket line. Plus, you won't get "soaked" at the ticket booth or concession counter! Also, several fine eating establishments are within a five-minute walk of the theater. This place deserves our support. The Sunrise is one special experience in one very special town!
"When you move to a new area, you need to adjust to it, not expect it to adjust to you."
Congratulations! That is easily the best line of the discussion. For the record, I believe Moore County Schools did the right thing. ALWAYS err on the side of caution when dealing with our youth. Not all roads in Moore County are relatively flat and well-traveled as they are in Southern Pines/Pinehurst/Aberdeen.
We may do things differently than other parts of the country, but isn't that part of the reason so many people choose to relocate here?
