A Chatham County farm could be yours for $300 and a short essay.  Norma Burns, who used to be an architect, has run Bluebird Hill Farm in Bennett for the last 18 years.  However, she’s ready to deed it to a “committed couple” in exchange for a 200 word essay on how they want to run the almost 13-acre organic farm and a $300 entry fee.  The farm is worth about $450,000.

Is your church hosting a Super Bowl party?

  • Location matters.A church is free to show the Big game in “its usual place of worship” but can’t rent a different facility like an auditorium or theater specifically to watch the game. Also, a church that meets in rented property cannot show the game – even if the facility is where the church usually gathers for worship…

Drive Thru Difference…  “My son and I were in the drive-through at Chick-fil-A at Thruway on Jan. 26. When we approached the window to pay, we were told our meal had been paid by the driver in front of us. What a nice surprise! Thank you so much.  Your act of kindness touched me and will be paid forward.” — D.P.
