Second new moon of this month. Black Moon. Supermoon. January 30, 2014

According to the definition of supermoon coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, over 30 years ago and popularized only in the past few years the next supermoon comes today, January 30, 2014. It’s the second supermoon of this month, and it’s a new moon, not a full moon. The first new supermoon (super new moon?) of this month was January 1. According to Nolle’s definition, the year 2014 has a total of five supermoons. They are the two new moons of January, and the full moons of July, August and September. We’ve heard people call this second new moon a Black Moon, but that name doesn’t come from astronomy either. Like any supermoon, the January 30 supermoon will have an effect on Earth’s oceans. Expect large tides. We won’t have a single calendar month with two supermoons again until January 2018. Follow the links below to learn about the supermoons of 2014.



Forno Moto Food Truck Is Now Mission Pizza in the Arts District!

Forno Moto Food Truck Is Now Mission Pizza in the Arts District!

Just opened in the Arts District is a  pizza parlor familiar to many around town. Mission Pizza opened recently, but many people know it from its early incarnation, the popular food truck calledForno Moto.

We are located at Trade and 7th. No sign on the street yet, but look for the covered patio and you will find us. Right next to Lucky Strike Boutique. No reservations, no call ahead.

The owner is Peyton Smith, who  opened the eatery last week at the former Rescue Mission at 707 North Trade Street. What makes Smith’s style unique is the wood-fired brick oven he uses in his food truck and now restaurant.

His pizza style is different too. It’s Napoletana, which features Italians’ favorites: fresh ingredients and seasonings. Another thing that is unique about Mission Pizza is its seed money.

Smith used the popular Kickstarter funding mechanism to help get the restaurant started. The restaurant will be open Monday-Saturday from 5-10 p.m. For more information call 336-893-8217 or visit

Final Bowman Gray Race of 2013

image Saturday: Final Fight for Championship at Bowman Gray (Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) The 2013 points battles have been raging since the first green flag this season at Bowman Gray Stadium. But this Saturday, it all comes to a head in one final night of racing before the champions are crowned. In the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series, Burt Myers of Walnut Cove has had a reprieve for the last two weeks as summer rainstorms have led to the postponement of Stadium racing. He didn’t have the opportunity to pad his 27-point lead but didn’t have to risk losing any ground to the rest of the field either. Brother Jason Myers of Walnut Cove and John Smith of Mount Airy now enter the Carolina Farm Credit 150 this Saturday night tied for second in the points. And with double points on the line, Burt Myers’s 27-point margin translates into less than a seven-position difference. Jason Myers finished second in the points last season as Tim Brown of Rural Hall went on to grab his ninth title. But in 2013, Jason has enjoyed the best season he’s ever had in the Modified Series: He’s racked up four wins, three poles, and 217 laps led.

John Smith has also had his strongest season ever with two wins and a top-ten finish in 19 out of 20 races in 2013. In the past twenty years, the Modified titles at Bowman Gray Stadium have been claimed by only a handful of drivers: Tim Brown, Burt Myers, Junior Miller of Danbury, and Robert Jeffreys of Wallburg. Now, Jason Myers and John Smith are only 150 laps away from potentially grabbing their first championship and breaking into that elusive club. But the Carolina Farm Credit 150 will put them to the test. It’s the second-longest race that the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series competes in – and the Midway Trailer Rental Double-File Restart Cone will add an extra element of endurance and strategy into the mix.

In the Classic Muscle Sportsman Series, Mack Little of Lexington will be trying to hold off Zack Clifton of Walkertown. After Clifton faltered a little in the last race, Little enters the season finale with a 44-point lead – an 11-position advantage. Doug Wall of Pfafftown has a 38-point margin separating him from John Holleman of Winston-Salem in the points battle for the Q104.1 New Country Street Stock Series. The most crowded points race belongs to the Summer Shootout Stadium Stock Series, with Chuck Wall of Lexington leading Jason Keaton of Mocksville by 24 points – with five other competitors close enough to potentially grab the crown away.

The final night of racing action will take place this Saturday in the Carolina Farm Credit 150. The Sportsman, Street Stock, and Stadium Stock Divisions will also duke it out on this one last night – and the evening will end with the always wild 109 U-Pull-It Chain Race. Gates open at 6:00 for practice, and the first race begins at 8:00 PM – this Saturday night. Ticket prices, directions, and more information can be found online at or by calling (336) 723-1819.

Winston-Salem Open will take place August 18-24

Big-Time Tennis Served Southern Style at the Winston-Salem
August means tennis in the Twin City.  The Winston-Salem Open will take place August 18-24 at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex adjacent to BB&T Field.
A number of fan favorites have committed to compete in Winston-Salem, including Tommy Haas, Sam Querrey, James Blake, Gael Monfils and Tommy Robredo and the Triad’s home-grown favorite (and two-time winner of the Winston-Salem Open), John Isner.
Here’s something pretty incredible about this year’s tournament:  Thirty-nine of the players slated to compete are all ranked in the top 75 in the world, and nine of the players are ranked among the ATP top 30.  Also, nine of the players coming to the Winston-Salem Open have been ranked in the top 10 during their careers.
And why do they continue to return to Winston-Salem? That’s a no-brainer; it’s the human touch that’s key, as in, Incredible hospitality, fan support and volunteers.
