Many Americans think $2 bills are rare or have gone out of circulation, but that’s a misconception. The Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing will churn out more than 200 million $2 bills this year. However, there are several reasons why the notes never took off – one being the widespread superstition that they were bad luck.

The top layer of the racing track is being milled and given a new surfacing.
Reason: To fix wear and tear on the track that happened during this summer’s racing season. The work will be performed under warranty with the contractors that performed the work last December– which means it will be at no additional cost to the city.
The resurfacing was the final phase of the city’s $9 million package of improvements to the historic stadium. *The track is expected to be repaired in time for Winston-Salem State University’s homecoming football game on Oct. 1.
The unexpected arrival and sudden removal of a small group of migrants from Martha’s Vineyard is still making headlines across the country. *While the island’s political leaders were struggling to respond to their new predicament, the Martha’s Vineyard Island Clergy Association took action to meet the needs of their new guests.
Religion News Service (RNS) reports St. Andrews, a small Episcopal church, hosted the migrants for two nights, providing meals and a place to stay at the parish house. See, the church hall is already equipped with cots, a large kitchen, showers, and laundry from their winter shelter. Other churches and residents sent food, clothes, and other supplies for the migrants. The Rev. Vincent “Chip” Seadale told RNS that little churches like St. Andrew’s still matter. He said the response of the church and the community shows that when people listen to their hearts, they can still rally together.
With the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II now a part of history, what will happen to items confiscated or left behind by mourners who (some) waited close to 24 hours in a 5-mile line to see the Queen lying-in-state at Westminster Hall? Food and drinks are not allowed inside Westminster.
*An organization known as The Felix Project has stepped in to collect non-perishable food, as well as unwanted blankets. It’s estimated that about two tons of food will be redistributed to people in need. *Some are suggesting that the Queen would be pleased with this act of royal charity. https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/confiscated-food-queue-queen-lying-113036766.html
