Here’s an economic opportunity for someone

While sitting in my favorite restaurant almost every weekend, I’ve noticed across the street at Krispy Kreme the Hot Donut sign is on and the crowd there is unbelievable. People can’t get into the parking lot. They park at the pharmacy on the other side of the street and walk across or just leave because of the crowd.

What would it take to get another Krispy Kreme in Salisbury? Maybe in the new spot with Dick’s and Hobby Lobby. I’m positive It would make killer money (and continue to make me fat). Spread this idea to someone that can make this happen.

Great day for Scouting

I am a 12-year-old, second year Boy Scout with Troop 442 at First United Methodist Church here in Salisbury. This past Sunday was Scout Sunday in church.  This is a way that we give a little something back to the fine people of the church to say thank you for all that the church does for us, which includes a nice place for our Pack and Troop to meet, vehicles to use whenever we need, and the great support that the church gives us.

This past Sunday we had one of our own become an Eagle Scout with his family and friends there to see it. We had many Cub Scouts as well as 29 Boy Scouts there. I and the rest of the Boy Scouts and leaders, which includes my father, walked into the church with our loaded backpacks, our merit badge sash as well as all of our patches showing. The congregation really loved seeing us walk in this way. We had our canoes, tents and a camp dutch oven hanging from a tripod out front of the church for all to see as they arrived.

With all this happening, our assistant Scoutmaster, Bruce Kolkebeck, was very surprised to receive a United Methodist Church Cross and Flame award for all of his hard work with the youth at First United Methodist Church.
