I had the honor of handling the lead-off spot at 9 am PST on a Monday morning, and I was reviewing the 222 provisions contained in a good married couple’s revocable living trust.

On Friday, October 28, 2011, the students of NCSU’s Circle K pulled off another successful haunted house at the Girls Club of Raleigh on N. Raleigh Boulevard.

This year, more than a hundred children and parents were able to enjoy the Halloween party and go through Circle K’s haunted house.
