Development to reshape Cramerton


The new development called Villages at South Fork  along with any earlier plan simply called Lakewood Village will bring 1,409 “upscale” housing units to the Town of Cramerton along with a combined 170,000 square feet of commercial space over the next 5 to 7 years.


Of course, this development impacts the whole area, and most importantly the school system and roads.

Hold on for this ride.

Winning $276 million Powerball ticket sold in WVA


Go Figure !

One person, gee, what do you think they will do with the money?

If a winner chooses to take the estimated $275 million in annual payments, the prize would be the equivalent of a salary of about $35,256 a day based upon an average, 40 hour a week job. The cash equivalent, or lump sum payment would be approximately $135,700,000.

One of the tickets sold in West Virginia for the Powerball game Saturday night matched all six numbers drawn, which were:

6, 22, 42, 43 and 47. The Powerball was 16 and the Power Play was two.

The Powerball Web site says nearly 2 million other players won prizes totaling more than $12 million.

Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each, and there were twelve of those. They were sold in: Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky(2), Louisiana, Minnesota, North Carolina(2), Pennsylvania(3) and Wisconsin.

There were two Power Play Match 5 winners in the states of: Iowa and North Carolina.

The estimated jackpot for Wednesday is 15 million dollars.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Belmont to citizens: Go Fly a Kite!

Yep, that is what the city is telling their citizens on sandwich boards scattered about the city.


Of course it is in reference to the Parks and Recreation, Go Fly a Kite celebration, this Saturday, March 15, at the Belmont Central Elementary school soccer field.

This event is for children ages 2-12, and prizes are awarded. There is no entry fee, and hopefully the weather will cooperate.
