Wendell race figures to be the marquee event this fall in eastern Wake County.
Some people in the world are still trying figure out ‘What Is Twitter?’ All I know is it can be a helpful resource when it comes to health, news and today’s political topics. With the unemployment rate at 11 percent, I found it interesting that you can follow job openings and useful career tips on Twitter.
I’m very glad that Twitter can be used as a helpful resource, more than just a way to find out what the heck Ashton Kutcher is doing. So with that said, I put together a list of twitter pages that will help you with your job search.
With all the debate over healthcare reform, it seems like there are some things we can do to help ourselves. Here are 10 healthful Twitter pages I found this week while doing a random search:
1. Fitness & Exercise, http://twitter.com/FitnessExercise
2. Autism Research, http://twitter.com/autism_research
3. Cancer, http://twitter.com/know_cancer
4. Pure Genesis, http://twitter.com/puregenesispure
5. Breast Cancer Care, http://twitter.com/BCCare
6. Quit Smoking 123, http://twitter.com/QuitSmoking123
7. Diabetes, http://twitter.com/diabetescure
8. Kids Doctor, http://twitter.com/TheKidsDoctor
9. H1N1, http://twitter.com/H1N1Info
10. Healthy Heart, http://twitter.com/healthy_heart
It's late July, early August, and to many people that means one thing crosses their minds during their free time — that monster fish that got away last year at about this time.
I've received zero big-bass pictures this summer and expect a rush of them to be coming in soon. Last year I probably had five or six marvel fish pictures sent my way, just like I do with other outdoor sports seasonally.
Deer and turkey come over the winter months and fish normally all summer, but not this year, not yet. That's why I'm expecting soon, particularly in light of my own success on the pond in late summer, early fall. There's larger, more hungry fish to be taken, and someone's got to want to show those bad boys off.
This blog is an invitation to those that find it — send a picture of your big catch to Eastern Wake News, it will make the sports page first-send, first-print.
A big fan of fishing myself, I truly enjoy seeing what has frequently kept me out on the water for too long on multiple occasions. If someone doesn't send me a picture of their beaut I might have to go hit one of my local ponds over the head and put a picture of my own fish in, and for humility's sake I don't want it to get to that point.
The filing period is over. See who's running.
The pace of candidate filing in Wendell picked up yesterday. The field is up to six candidates.
Candidates signing up in Wendell, Knightdale and Zebulon.
