Yes! One of my boys that hung out with my son and classmate CJ Dancy III. I love it! Just stopped by to see them this morning and I was telling him I seen where I seen one of his teammates had gotten drafted.

I said we going to be reading about you next year and they said they hope so. I said we will. I said we are going to claim it now.

I am so proud of Connie Jenkins for being there for him because last year we were just talking about his injury and we thought his career was over but last summer he found out it was not what the doctors thought.

Pinetops customers will be losing Greenlight – Wilson Times

Greenlight Community Broadband is slated to discontinue service to Pinetops by July 12, but the sale of infrastructure in the town will mean residents won’t miss out on high-speed broadband.

“Everyone I know who has Greenlight is very sad that this is happening,” said former Pinetops commissioner Suzanne Coker Craig. “Everyone has been extremely satisfied with not only the speed of the connection, but the customer service. The city of Wilson has served us extremely well, and we have no need to change.”

However, the change in providers was necessitated by the addition of Suddenlink service in Pinetops and a 2017 law stipulating the public provider has 30 days to stop service after a competitive provider connects to Greenlight’s customers in rural Nash and Edgecombe counties. On June 13, the notification was sent by Suddenlink, and Greenlight sought a buyer for the fiber optic infrastructure. (Read more)

Princeville had plan, but not action, to avoid another flood – WRAL

The Watch Dog response: This is very interesting. I feel that these types of studies need to be done in all areas affected by the floods such as in Pinetops as well. It is my belief that somebody knew that Princeville, Bynum Farm Road and other areas that flood should not had been zoned for housing anyway. But the owners of certain areas were allowed to get paid. The towns and the counties where these floods occur should be made to do something that will possibly eliminate the flooding or declare them not livable so the folk can move out of harms way.
