Your WBFJ Family Station Forecast Today:  Chance of Showers… High 61… Governor Pat McCrory ordered all State Buildings to lower their flags to half-staff from Sunrise on Monday to Sunset on Wednesday.  The Order is in Memorial of former UNC Men’s Basketball Coach Dean Smith, who died Saturday night.  He was 83. http://myfox8.com/2015/02/08/gov-mccrory-all-flags-at-state-buildings-lowered-to-half-staff-to-honor-dean-smith/

The First Phase of Construction to a New Roundabout at Bermuda Run began this morning, with construction crews demolishing the 40-year old gatehouse off U.S.  158 that leads into the community.  That entrance will be closed through April 30.  The entire roundabout is not scheduled to be completed until early November. http://myfox8.com/2015/02/08/construction-on-bermuda-run-roundabout-to-begin-monday/

Winter-weary New England is bracing for another round of snow that could bring up to 2 feet of snow in some areas of the region.  The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for central New York, the western Catskills and much of New England through early Tuesday. http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2015/02/08/new-england-braces-for-another-big-snow-storm/

Ladies, A Heavy Coffee Habit might do more than perk you up. New research suggests it may also reduce your risk of endometrial cancer.  Using data on more than 456,000 women from two large ongoing studies, researchers evaluated the dietary habits of more than 2,800 women diagnosed with cancer of the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. Compared to women who drank less than a cup a day, those who drank about four cups daily had an 18 percent lower risk of getting this cancer, they found. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/coffee-may-lower-endometrial-cancer-risk-for-women/

A 14-year old St. Charles, Missouri Boy who spent 15 minutes under water after falling through the ice, has made a recovery no one can explain.  Dr. Kent Sutterer and his team performed CPR on John for 27 minutes with no success.  The question was raised: how long should they continue, considering the fact that the Boy had now been Dead for 45 Minutes? What happened next defies explanation.  The Doctor called John’s mother into the room to give her the news, when suddenly she started Praying Loudly, and within a Minute or Two John’s Heart began Beating!  In a Letter the Doctor wrote later to Clear Up the event in his Own Mind, he said, “His heart was jump started by the Holy Spirit listening to the request of his praying mother.” http://www.ksdk.com/story/news/features/2015/02/03/hear-miraculous-recovery-teen-rescued-ice/22819829/

When a Georgia Walmart took away a Greeter’s Right to tell customers to “Have a Blessed Day” after one customer complained, the Backlash from Hundreds of Supporters was Strong Enough to force the retail store to back down.  And Now, Greeter James Phillips is Enjoying the Positive Support from those who shop in his store, as well as others from around the country who believe he’s only doing the right thing in a day when political correctness has silenced many seemingly harmless gestures. http://www.gospelherald.com/articles/54252/20150204/walmart-greeter-told-not-to-say-have-a-blessed-day-but-overwhelming-support-forced-store-to-back-down.htm

A Florida Woman thought she was pregnant with twins, but it turned out to be one very large baby.  Maxxandra Ford said she didn’t know she was pregnant until her third trimester, when she started to gain weight.  When she went to the doctor to find out why, her doctor told her she was pregnant.  Her newborn son, Avery Denton, weighed 14 pounds and one ounce.  Avery is now the heaviest baby born at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa Bay.  Ford delivered her son naturally. http://myfox8.com/2015/02/09/woman-gives-birth-to-14-pound-baby/
