Ask Sam: Winston-Salem Journal

Question: Can you tell me why there is an electric fence (with goats) on the Salem Creek Greenway near Bowman Gray Stadium and Winston-Salem State University?

Answer: The fence is there to keep in around 20 goats which are currently on the Salem Creek portion of the greenway to assist with ‘vegetation’ control (mainly Kudzu) along the section of greenway between Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Highway 52.

Johnnie Taylor, operations director for the city of Winston-Salem sharing that “…staff evaluated herbicides and mowing as other possible options to manage the vegetation, but the goats provide the best solution due to environmental concerns. The goats will be on-site for three years, mainly in the spring and summer months.”

Research: The average person falls asleep within seven minutes.

But, only 21% of Americans get the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep each night.  According to the National Sleep Foundation, sleep is as important as diet and exercise.

Fact: ‘Lack of quality sleep’ has been linked to heart disease, depression, even diabetes.

Fact: Getting your beauty sleep can help regulate hormones that control appetite, so you’ll eat fewer calories overall when you snooze for seven to nine hours per night.

Moreover, not sleeping enough makes you more likely to reach for unhealthy foods: Cravings for high-calorie, fatty foods surge by 45% when you’re sleep-deprived.

*And for the first time, one of the cast members – Wendi Lou Lee who played ‘Baby Grace’ – is writing about the faith behind the TV classic.

Wendy says that ‘the four seasons that (she) spent on Little House on the Prairie playing the role of Baby Grace Ingalls are among God’s greatest blessings.

Wendi is a Jesus follower, a former child actress, and a brain surgery survivor.

In 2015, Wendi was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her surgery and recovery led to a newfound freedom to be embrace who God created her to be.

Wendy has turned those ‘Little House’ lessons into a book.

“A Prairie Devotional” is a collection of stories—from Wendy’s life and from the episodes of Little House—the ups and down of life, the joys and sorrows and how every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan.
