NC Highway Patrol concludes Operation Stop Arm Campaign

The North Carolina Highway Patrol ended its Operation Stop Arm campaign on Friday, October 23. The campaign, which began on Monday, October 19, was focused on promoting traffic safety around North Carolina schools, school buses and school bus stops.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA), approximately 24 children are killed in school bus accidents in an average year. Very few of these fatalities occur on the bus. Sadly, one-third of all fatalities are a result of motorists who fail to stop for the school bus, and one-third are pedestrians who are killed as they approach or leave the school bus stop.

Common courtesy is rapidly disappearing

Granted, I know I've bought some of this on myself. Since my illness earlier this year, I'll admit that my step is a little more leisurely and that I drive a bit more downtempo. So much so that I've even been criticized, goaded and mocked about my acumen behind the wheel by my own family.
I get what the leadfeet I love most are trying to tell me: they are obviously envious of my caution and expertise. Or something like that.
Apparently though, motorists of the greater Nash-Rocky Mount area is less impressed. I've had horns blow at me and I'm certain that the words being muffled from inside other autos were not words of praise or respect.

Knowledge, a guillotine chopper to cut picture frame moulding is sharp. Wisdom, there are two kinds of people who operate moulding choppers, those who have been cut, and those who are going to be cut.

A Tie Tops Off Soccer Season

ROCKY MOUNT -- With both squads out of the postseason picture, only pride was at stake last Friday afternoon when backyard rivals Nash Central and Northern Nash met in the final regular season boys soccer contest of the 2015 campaign.
Of course, pride is always a key intangible whenever Northern and Nash Central meet, regardless of the sport.
As expected, emotions were high for the matchup, and a huge crowd was on hand to bid farewell to the season since the Big East Conference Tournament was cancelled due to a scheduling backlog from poor weather.
