Additional missionaries placed in quarantine…Local man gives 600th platelet donation…Customer appreciation at K&W on Wednesday…NC one of the cheapest to operate a car? (Tuesday News)

Good News: North Carolina is among the ‘least expensive’ states to operate a car. According to a new Bankrate.com report, Tar Heel drivers may spend more on car repairs and fuel, but we save money on below-average insurance costs. FYI: The cost to operate a motor vehicle in NC: around $2,129 per year. http://goo.gl/IqoSBP

Update: Three additional missionaries serving in Liberia during the recent Ebola virus outbreak are now back in the US. Even though they are showing NO signs or symptoms of Ebola, the missionaries will remain under a 21-day quarantine –as a ‘precautionary measure’. They will be staying in a private section of SIM USA’s 90-acre campus near Charlotte until they have been released from quarantine. The latest updates: www.simusa.org/ebolacrisis.

“It’s a habit, and I like helping people” –
Ed Rothrock donated his 600th platelet donation yesterday at local American Red Cross chapter in Winston-Salem. Unlike traditional blood donation, which can only be done every 56 days, platelets can be donated every seven days (up to 24 times a year). Ed has been donating platelets nearly every two weeks since 1991. To donate, call 1-800-RED-CROSS. www.journalnow.com
