Oil and Gas Stock Prices Take A Tumble, Why Not Our Gas Prices at The Pumps?

Monday, September 15th, 2008

The TV show “Fast Money” has the oil and gas stock prices down today, Why then are our gas prices still showing over $4.00 a gallon?

Take a look at any gas station in New Bern and Havelock NC today and you still see gas prices from $4 dollars to $4.50 a gallon.

Rumor has it that the increase was due to Hurricane Ike but now it has come and gone and still prices remain the same.

How about giving us a break. Do the oil companies really think we are that dumb? No, just know that we have no choice.

Either buy gas or don’t drive. Great choice gas companies, thanks for the gouge!!

As Real Estate Agents, don’t you think we have enough issues besides dealing with increased gas prices?

Hurricane Ike Hits New Bern NC!

Friday, September 12th, 2008

This time New Bern North Carolina has dodged the actual winds and rain of this major category 2 storm but the damage of this storm

can still be felt.

Gas Prices go wild

At the mere threat of this storm, panic ran rampant. In just 12 hours, Gas prices have jumped over 25%.

On Thursday the average price of gas was $3.59, today at 9 am it went to $4.59.

New Bern residents waited at the pumps 3 or 4 cars deep per pump to fill up before the stations changed the prices.

Raising gas prices is a horrid thing to do. It is despicable that the gas companies would line their pockets with the fear of a gas shortage.

Write to your elected officials to complain of this act or should I say attack.
For an update on the real Hurricane Ike go to the Weather Channel.

Epiphany Soccer Pulls Off Win in New Bern!

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Well Boys, I spoke too soon. The Epiphany boys  soccer team wins their game 2 goals to nothing today.

Jake and Matt lead the team in a swift offensive move to score in the first few minutes of the

1st half. The defense held their own with Derrick, Eddie and the rest of the Falcon’s keeping their

opponents away from the goalie. Our two goalies dove their way into the 0 goals scored upon them.

Great game Falcons!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Epiphany School Soccer in New Bern NC

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Today was a rough day for our boy’s soccer team at The Epiphany School.

Epiphany School Soccer in New Bern NC

I was so busy taking pictures today that I lost the goal count but it was by a landslide that we did not win this game.

The boys did run hard and were trying their best. Might I remind all that this school is only in it’s 3rd year so

that being said, we have a good group of boys that are not only gifted in school but in sports as well.

New Bernian’s, Ride Your Fanny Off This Weekend

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Join me, Christian Ward and a cast of other crazy bike riders while we race, or should I say

pedal at a moderate pace through the streets of New Bern NC Saturday September 12 and 13th.

Celebrating 20 years, the MS Bike tour makes it’s way back to my own town of New Bern.

This being my second year, I hope to have acquired a tougher fanny to help me go the 30 miles on Saturday

and 30 miles on Sunday. Other more advanced bottoms will ride 75 or even 100 miles per day, but not me

this time, maybe next year!
