Family Loses Everything In Fire!But, the father feels lucky that everyone got out alive and no one was injured. Really makes you think, I was struck by how this family who lost all their worldly possessions in a fire but can appreciate the huge blessing that the parents and their five children all managed to escape the early morning blaze.The house is two minutes from where I live and the youngest goes to the same school with my son Rory. It is a scary sight to see a house I have passed a thousand times reduced to rubble and all the more difficult when you see the Christmas decorations amongst the charred ruins.The response to this family's plight is also an indication of how other people respond when they see someone in need. Since the fire the family has received a new home from a loc...

Conor's Last Day at River Dell Elementary! Our wonderful son Conor had his last day at River Dell Elementary last week and there was a big old party for all the fifth grade students. It was amazing to see how much all these kids have grown since he started in River Dell going to kindergarten six years ago. They had the awards in the morning and hearing familiar names from his different classes was cool, some had changed so much I wouldn't recognise them others had not changed a bit. When Conor started in kindergarten he was in class with a Victoria whom he called Bacteria....Kelly and I still call her that!! We are very happy with the teachers at River Dell Elementary and the Principal Ms Spalding who announced the unofficial news that River Dell is now a School of Excellence. There is ...

Archer Lodge 4th of July Parade...First Official One As North Carolina's Newest Town. Yep Archer Lodge had it's annual 4th of July Parade today and it was a little different from all previous parades in that Archer Lodge is now a Town. In fact it is North Carolina's newest town having only recently becoming incorporated. The threat of being taken over by Clayton or (god forbid) Wendell was too much for many.   Check out a certain congress man who appeared recently on the network I used to blog this!! This is one of the best family days I have seen. Archer Lodge puts on a great day, starting with a 5K run. Parade, BBQ cookoff, raffle, bounce houses for the kids. A wet down by the Archer Lodge Fire Department. I am such a cheap skate I always buy last years t-shirts, this year I bought th...

A sure sign that summer is on the way, evenings spent in the bleachers praying they will get a hit or make a catch.     The folks at Archer Lodge do a great job and have a great facility for the people to use. There are basketball courts, a walking track, baseball, and soccer. There are lots of teams of all ages. Rory is eight.

Scenes From North Carolina's Newest Town Archer Lodge, in Johnston County.             Archer Lodge is primarily a farming community that is seeing more and more of the land being used for homes. It became a town after people were afraid that the larger towns of Clayton and Wendell would eventually incorporate the area. Their ETJ's were knocking on the door and folks were afraid that if they did not incorporate, that the name would disappear. As with every thing new there are learning curves and the town is finding it's way. They did not waste any time in getting our new tax bills out though.      So now it's up to the  Planning Board to decide what will be allowed and what vision they have for the town. There are some nice homes available in Archer Lodge, and the prices are generally l...

Archer Lodge is North Carolina's Newest Town. The community known as Archer Lodge is set to become a town after a vote on Tuesday November 3rd 2009. The vote was 418 to 307 from about 2,630 registered voters. The town will govern approx 3000 people in an area that has seen growth approach it from two sides, the town Of Clayton and the town of Wendell as they expanded there boundaries came closer and closer. This got a group of residents worried that the community might be swallowed up and lost forever.     The Town of Archer Lodge will be in a position to control the growth that will undoubtedly start up again as the economy improves, it has three new schools, lots of undeveloped land and is centrally located with easy access to Clayton, Raleigh and Smithfield.                 The Arche...
