It’s only 8 and a half months (or 264 days) til Christmas…

Hallmark Channel and its sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air a record 40 new Christmas movies later this year.  The first of these movies is scheduled to debut in July. BTW: Hallmark networks account for about half of all new holiday TV movies across all networks and streamers.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hallmark Channel’s ‘Countdown to Christmas’, which kicks off October 25 (or around 200 days away).  https://ew.com/tv/2019/04/04/hallmark-new-christmas-movies-2019/?fbclid=IwAR2xuiQR_DcM4o5gANvtQJDPHzzX92EY9TZbjnO2ddMITsclQCjPZnag-O8

 

Winston-Salem police are still searching for the 26 year old man (Gregory Lucas Junior) that is responsible for running down a bicyclist and leaving the scene.

The cyclist, Robert Jordan, owner of Vogler Dance Studio, has been hospitalized since being hit on Reynolda Road back on March 25.

Sad update: Because of the accident and Jordon’s condition, his family has decided to close Vogler Studio after 41 years.

*Anyone with information about this incident can call Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.
