N2 Publishing buys space for new headquarters | WilmingtonBiz

I have never seen one of their publications. The description of the company scares me a little with the religious focus. In any case, it's a bit of Huckleberry Finn thinking to get everyone painting their fence for free. This seems to be the woman who is inviting residents to the Town Hall Grill on the 30th.

Southern Community Park

It was really nice to see so many kids out on the soccer fields this afternoon. I wonder how many afternoons each week that happens? Usually when I walk by, there is no one there.

Inline hockey rink

I asked about how much use the inline hockey rink (at Southern Community Park) gets:
"The hockey rink is use on a regular bases.  Tuesday, and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings there is hockey play.  Box lacrosse is played there also.  This lacrosse will be played on nights opposite the hockey play.  Most use is evenings and Saturday mornings.  There are occasional rentals for birthday skate parties etc..."

Trail walkers/runners

Today, I walked from Graylyn to Culbreth on the trail. To my pleasant surprise, at about 9:30 AM, I found maybe twice the number of people out walking and running than I have ever seen on an hour's walk. I hope it is a huge and permanent trend!
