Wounded Warrior Project 2014


Wounded Warriors who incurred service-connected injuries or illness on or after September 11, 2001 are eligible for the WWP Alumni program. No dues here – you paid those on the battlefield. Check out all the benefits and register today.

When a warrior faces challenges, the family experiences those challenges along with their warrior. We support family members who suddenly find they are serving as full-time supporters or caregivers.

You can help Wounded Warrior Project ® honor and empower Wounded Warriors by hosting a Proud Supporter event, volunteering your time, sending a Thank You note to an injured service member, and much more.

Your generous donation to WWP helps thousands of Wounded Warriors – and their families – as they return home from the current conflicts. Donation options include one-time gifts, the Advance Guard Monthly Giving Program, and more.

A strong Alberta clipper will race through the Piedmont this evening bringing a few showers with it.

Rain has been changing to snow from north to south across the area. As this is happening, the back edge of the precipitation is moving west to east and ending quickly for some.

Most areas from the Triad east will see the flurries and a few will see a dusting to around 1/2 inch.

The most snow should fall in the mountains where 1 to 3 inches should fall for most with nearer 6 inches on the west facing slopes.

Outside of the mountains amounts will drop off rapidly. There may be a sweet spot east of the mountains just north of Durham near the Virginia line where 1-2 inches may fall from Roxboro to Oxford to Roanoke Rapids.

In the middle between the mountains and the Triad, a dry slot will keep most areas…

Goodwill employee doesn’t let pain slow him down

Goodwill employee doesn’t let pain slow him down.


Tony Gilmore has a highly technical job of trouble-shooting, correcting and getting computers up and running at Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina.

“I like working on different brands of computers,” Gilmore said.

He also gets to do another job he loves — interacting with customers who want to buy or need information about refurbished computers.

Gilmore has a large customer following at various Goodwill stores.

“He has a lot of customers who come here specifically because of the stuff that he builds,” Andrew True, Goodwill’s transportation and E-Cycle manager, said of the Goodwill on Peters Creek Parkway.

Thomas Royal, a multimedia public relations specialist for Goodwill, said that it’s wonderful to watch Gilmore interact with customers.

“People will come in and they’ll just wait until Tony is available to talk to them because he’s patient and he explains things,” Royal said.

Gilmore wasn’t always focused on computers and electronics.
