Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden said if it’s renewed for a third season, “Sleepy Hollow” will move production from Wilmington following the demise of the North Carolina film tax credit program.
For months, I knew this day would come. The day we would say goodbye to a television show that employed hundreds of Wilmington, NC residents. Put money in the pockets of so many small businesses and brought so many fans of the show to this great city of ours. I’ve met many and took them around the town where they spent so many of their dollars here. I am sure many of you remember me sneaking them by and introducing them to you.
I tried my best, but even my best wasn’t good enough last year to educate the narrow minds of the North Carolina House and the Senate. My words fell on deaf ears. Some said we don’t need the incentives to keep the productions coming. Some said, it’s just not worth it, it costs the state. I urge them to ask the small businesses across…
Using home spun comedy, common sense wisdom, old fashioned values and politically incorrect humor, Gregory pokes fun at crazy relatives, modern sensitive parents and out-of-control environmentalists.

The Homeless Point-in-Time Count needs volunteers on Wednesday, January 28
The Homeless Point-in-Time Count is a one day, unduplicated count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families in Forsyth County. The count, coordinated by United Way of Forsyth County and the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Homeless Council, helps determine the extent of homelessness in the community and data will be used to plan services for the homeless throughout the year. Through efforts in the community to reduce homelessness, chronic homelessness is down over 50% and veteran homelessness is down over 72% in the last seven years. In November, Winston-Salem Forsyth County and Guilford County were selected to participate in Zero 2016, a national campaign to end veteran and chronic homelessness. Mayors Joines and Vaughan announced a partnership to end veteran homelessness by the end of 2015.
Volunteers are needed to help out with the identification and counting of people who are sleeping outside on Wednesday, January 28, 2014. Volunteers will count in groups of 4 to 5 throughout the county for two shifts, 9 p.m. – 12 a.m. and 12 a.m. – 4 a.m. Organizers will be assembling bags of necessities to hand out to homeless men and women and are seeking donations of winter hats, mittens, scarves, gloves, socks, toothpaste, toothbrushes, small bottles of lotion, chapstick (lip balm), canned foods with pop-tops or pre-packaged food, sunscreen and bottled water.
Volunteers may register by visiting www.forsythunitedway.org or by calling 336-721-9378. Donations may be delivered to the Bethesda Center.
