The lost get found?  80% of Americans (50 plus) will pick up a stray coin if spotted on the ground.



Thomas Faucette retired last Friday as the crossing guard at Peck Elementary School in Greensboro…at the age 102-year-old.

Mr Thomas is a hometown icon. Assuring the safety of all pedestrians at the busy intersection of Van Wert Street and West Florida Street in Greensboro – after more than three decades. A Greensboro native, Mr Thomas served in World War II (US Army Vet). Retired from the U.S. Postal Service and then took up a second career as a crossing guard for Greensboro City Schools in the mid-80s.

“(the second career) was his wife’s idea,” suggested Mr Thomas.



The owners Louie & Honey’s Kitchen are planning a major expansion at their West End Blvd location beginning this summer.  The changes will include a larger kitchen, a market and more dining area. The expansion is being made possible because the bakery’s neighboring businesses, Fiddle & Fig and The Mulberry Table (both owned by the same folks), are moving to 107 S. Stratford Road (the former Nitsa’s Apparel space in Stratford Village), according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

BTW: Started as a pop-up bakery called Lavender and Honey, the mother and daughter team (Naomi and Natalie) opened the retail bakery at West End in December of 2020, and later changed the named to Louie & Honey’s Kitchen.



The newest Love’s Travel Stops location is now open off Hwy 52 at Exit 120 in Rural Hall, just north of Winston-Salem.  The new ‘Love’s’ location – open 24/7 – offers grab n go snacks, drinks, a dog park even a Bojangles, plus 76 spaces for big truck parking.  FYI: In honor of the grand opening, Love’s is donating $5,000 dollars to the Rural Hall Elementary School Special Education Program.



“Fear not” is a frequent command in the Bible.

Like our verse for today.

   “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…” 1 John 4:18 NKJV

But most pastors across the US feel churchgoers aren’t getting the message.

According to Lifeway Research, almost 7 in 10 U.S. Protestant pastors (69%) believe there is a growing sense of fear within their congregations about the future of the nation and world. More than 3 in 5 (63%) say their churches have a similar ‘increasing dread’ or fear about the future of Christianity here and abroad.



“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”  

2 Timothy 1:7 Berean Standard Bible

Fear NOT.
