WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — As hundreds of cyclists get ready to whip through city streets this weekend for the Winston-Salem Cycling Classic, local shops and city departments are making sure roads along the route are rider ready.

“We want it to be as safe as possible,” said Ken Putnam, owner of Ken’s Bike Shop.

With cyclists going at speeds of 30 to 40 miles an hour, Putnam will be putting down foam barriers to buffer falls against the hard asphalt.

“These cyclists aren’t going to have pads or anything,” Putnam said. “They’re just going to have a lycra suit and a really fast bike.”

He has a U-Haul truck full of padding for street lights, fire hydrants, curbs and any other potentially dangerous objects along the seven mile route for professional cyclists and two mile route for amateur riders.

Six of his employees will put the barriers up…

Heaven is for Real the Movie

Image

Looking for a great movie to watch over the Easter Holy Days? Then you may want to see Heaven is for Real the Movie. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of a four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who experienced heaven during emergency surgery. He talks about looking down to see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

In heaven, Colton met his miscarried sister whom no one ever had told him about and his great-grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. He shared impossible-to-know details about each. Colton went on to describe the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “really big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us.

Told by the Colton’s father often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is that heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and to be ready … there is a coming last battle. ~Ray Publishing Reviewsynopsis

The Burpos are the perfect picture of a small-town Americana family: mom and dad, daughter and son. Young Colton and his dad are inseparable until an illness lands Colton in the hospital. Fearing they will lose their son, the parents cry out to God to spare him.

While Colton’s amazing recovery should lead his family back to normalcy, they quickly discover nothing will ever be the same again. With childlike innocence, Colton begins talking about having visited Heaven and his incredible experiences there … including meeting family members he never knew about.

Based on the beloved book, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL tells one family’s story about Heaven and the impact it has on their community … and the world.
