    District Court judge issues preliminary injunction against two provisions of NC’s voter law

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The same federal judge who denied a preliminary injunction against North Carolina’s new voting law granted Friday, blocking two provisions of the law that prohibited same-day voter registration and out-of-precinct voting, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. But the rules that North Carolina voters will face within the next month are up in the air because of a flurry of court filings that has now landed the case in the lap of the U.S. Supreme Court. On Wednesday, […]

    Would you eat a chocolate and bacon covered banana at the Dixie Classic Fair?

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Vendors at the Dixie Classic Fair have jumped on the bacon bandwagon, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. “Everybody’s adding bacon to everything,” said David Sparks, the director of the fair. “There are very few foods that wouldn’t be better with bacon.” As in, bacon corn dogs. Or bacon-wrapped fried Twinkies, stuffed with a Twix bar for good measure. Or frozen bananas dipped in chocolate and drizzled with bacon. The Winston-Salem Journal is even sponsoring a Better With […]

    FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — For the great-grandchildren of the late C.W. and Posie Myers, showing horses is a family affair. And so is winning, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. Four cousins entered the 2014 World’s Championship Horse Show at the Kentucky State Fair in August, and all four walked away with world championship titles. “We had hopes and dreams, but none of us thought we would all win,” said Charles Gassen, one of the second cousins. They won the titles […]

    East Stokes Outreach dedicates new building

    WALNUT COVE, N.C. — Marchelle Brown shed tears of joy as people walked into the new East Stokes Outreach Ministry food pantry and office Wednesday, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. Two and a half years ago, Brown, the executive director of the ministry, was crying for a different reason. The floors were falling in at the outreach’s 75-year-old building. That building had to be torn down. But on Wednesday, the ministry held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new 3,000-square-foot building […]

    Groundbreaking for new high school could start healing in Davie Co. over divisive issue

    MOCKSVILLE, N.C. — The word “historic” kept popping during the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Davie County High School last week on Farmington Road, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.  And with good reason. It’s not every day that dirt is moved for a new high school in the county. Indeed, such an event hasn’t occurred in nearly 60 years. “Look around,” school board member Clint Junker told a crowd of a few hundred people standing in what was once an overgrown […]

    Thousands turn out to support breast-cancer survivors at Komen fundraiser

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — As Julie Stickler remembers it, the first lump in her breast was discovered in 2002, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. She was 32 and was told the lump wasn’t harmful. Wait until 40 to get a mammogram, she was told. Nine years later, when she was 41, that mammogram detected what turned out to be several cancerous lumps in her right breast and a tumor in her left breast. As it turns out, the tumor had probably […]
