WBFJ News: Thursday, MARCH 24, 2016

 

No TEXTING while walking?  Distracted walking is becoming a big deal. A proposed law in New Jersey will make it illegal to (yes) text while walking. The penalty: $50 dollar fine  / 15 days in jail, or both?? -Seriously, accidents due to distracted walking have risen 35% since 2010. http://goo.gl/EWmBzm

 

 “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine”   Law enforcement across the state and here in the Triad will be watching for speeders through the Easter weekend.

Seriously, the posted speed limit is NOT a suggestion.   FACT: Experts remind us that “Speed is a contributing factor in more serious accidents. http://goo.gl/9Gy74K

Update: The NC General Assembly successfully blocked a dangerous Charlotte ordinance (the so-called bathroom bill) during a Special Session of the Legislature in Raleigh on Wednesday. HB 2, which among other things protects the privacy rights of women and children and the rights of business owners, by repealing a Charlotte ordinance that would allow men access to women’s locker rooms, showers and restrooms. The Governor signed the bill  (HB-2)late last night. Note: Passing HB 2 was a bipartisan effort in the NC House with a vote of 82 to 26 with all Republicans in attendance and 10 Democrats voting yes. In the NC Senate, the vote was 32 to 0 after the Democrats walked out prior to the vote.

“And (Jesus) took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you.  Do this in remembrance of me.’ And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, ‘This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”   Luke 22:19-20
