Counterfeiting At Brevard College, this economy is killing us!

College Students Arrested for Counterfeiting

Four Brevard College students and former football players are charged with counterfeiting cash tonight. Police say they were running off $20 bills to spend in stores, and to buy drugs.

Officers arrested Blake Spinks, Chase Waldo, Takeem Moore and Darius Williams. Police say they were tipped off by a call from a Wendy's employee who took a fake $20 bill.

Brevard police chief Dennis Wilde says Spinks was the money maker, running it on Staples multi-purpose paper.

Officers say two of the men used the fake money to buy marijuana from a female student on campus. Now the men face possible federal charges.

Brevard College is not commenting on the case.

They Are Asking To Suck Your Blood, please allow!

HENDERSONVILLE – During the busy holiday season, giving blood is not high on the to-do list. Other reasons for the slowdown in blood collections are people taking time off work and not being in their routines. Also, cold and flu season sets in.

After Thanksgiving, blood collectors must go into high gear to stock up for the toughest sustained period of the year: mid-December to mid-January.

Beth Golden, director of blood services for the Henderson County Chapter, American Red Cross, said people should consider giving blood to be one of their gifts to give this year.

With one pint of blood, potentially three lives are saved.

Ten blood drives will occur in December in Henderson County, with the largest drive at Grace Lutheran Church from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Dec. 30.

Donors can sign-up online at www.membersforlife.org/cbsr (code # 6304) or by calling 693-5605. The chapter drive, A Holiday Celebration, will be 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Dec. 15. Call 693-5605 to schedule a donation appointment.

Information on the other blood drives can be found at www.hcredcross.org, by calling 693-5605 or by stopping at the chapter offices at 203 Second Avenue E., Hendersonville.

Donors must be at least 17 years of age, or 16 with parent/guardian permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, be in general good health; and must present a valid photo ID.

NC State Trooper @ State Fair in Hendersonville NC

Stopped by the "State Trooper" booth at the State Fair to see what was going on. They had a helicopter and many vehicles to show off. Here is a quick pic of a proud State Trooper contributing his time to the NC State Fair in Henderson County. (Pretty much at the Buncombe/Henderson line, but in Henderson County). We also met an officer from the Fletcher Police Dept. named Officer Jason Tweed and he was more than courteous with answering questions and talking to us. Great people, and even great police out here in Hendersonville NC! For the most part.

Hendersonville Street "Preachers"

If this is because we were out there on Sunday... HE WAS TOO!!! Just kidding. I guess this guy got a permit to make sure everyone knows "God Hates Our Sin". I thought that was supposed to be a gimme. Anyway, people looked at him, shyed away, and kept walking and having a good old time at the Hendersonville Apple Fest. Isn't there a third world country somewhere that needs this message more that this spot that probably has about 100 churches in a one mile radius? I just came to have some fun and grab a bite.

96.5 WOXL @ the Hendersonville Apple Fest

Somebody called it a yellow submarine, but I believe it is just a car that was painted to get your attention, lol. This is a radio station out of Asheville WNC that got involved with the Hendersonville Apple Fest. Many people at their booth. www.965woxl.com

Hendersonville Apple Fest North Carolina

Going to the Hendo Apple Fest is what we do every year. It is a great event with a lot of fun, games, things for the kids, food food food, and we get to meet some really great people. Here is a quick pic of the crowd on the Main Street of Downtown Hendersonville NC.

Downtown Hendersonville North Carolina

Looking at this street brings back many memories, past and recent. Coming here for the Hendersonville Apple Fest, stopping by that awesome bakery, and passing that crazy T-Shirt store (you know, the guy who got in trouble for throwing free t-shirts at people). Anyway... here is a simple picture of Downtown Hendersonville NC. Lots of room on the sidewalks, nice parking, and good room for cars in the streets. One of the better, historic "downtown" set ups in the area. Hendersonville is also becoming a big attraction for retirees. Convenient to many other Cities and towns including Asheville North Carolina, which is only 25 minutes away from this spot.
