WBFJ News:  Friday, January 23, 2015  

WBFJ – Ice Skating (Saturday night) at the Annex in Winston-Salem from  6:30-9pm. BTW: There is a  WAKE vs STATE Hockey Match following our skate night.  All WBFJ Ice Skaters and guests are welcomed to stay and watch the WAKE vs STATE Hockey game at no additional charge.  www.wbfj.org

January is National Radon Action Month    A limited number of FREE radon testing kits are currently available on a first-come, first-serve basis for pickup in 13 counties in and around the Triad.  Once the free kits are gone, the Radon Program website will sell test kits at $5.34 while supplies last. Fact: Close to two-thirds of all homes exceed the safe level for radon.     www.ncradon.org/Home.html

Fight for Life:  On Thursday, House Republicans passed legislation to prohibit federal funding for abortions.    The 242-179 vote was along party lines.  The President has promised to veto the bill. http://goo.gl/4SQqXg

The flu epidemic in North Carolina has led to a record 114 deaths this season, so far.   A record level, in this case, is narrowly defined since DHHS didn’t begin tracking weekly flu-related deaths until the 2008-09 flu season. There were at least 15 flu victims reported last week.  There have been 16 confirmed flu-related deaths — five in Forsyth, along with 11 in Guilford County.  Best advice: Don’t let your guard down and always take preventive health measures. http://goo.gl/XKlzqb

NASCAR: Jeff Gordon announcing yesterday that 2015 will be his final ‘full’ season competing for a NASCAR championship. BTW: Jeff Gordon’s first career Winston Cup win was the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte back in 1994.

One Triad couple will be featured on ‘House Hunters’. Forsyth County residents Michal and Katie Trenerowski will be featured on February 4 on HGTV.  They looked at three homes, two in Winston-Salem and one in Lewisville. The episode was filmed back in July. In reality, the couple who just had a baby has been in their new home for about six months. http://goo.gl/R3VFc7

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.     James 1:5   ESV
