Is something going on at The Daily Reflector that we need to know about? They’re updating their website at about a two-to-three day rate as of late.

Speed Dee is opening a second location on Greenville Blvd in the former Jiffy Lube (I believe) near Greenville TV & Appliance.

Winterville is getting a new Pizza Hut in the strip mall that houses Lemon Grass restaurant (next to Sam Jones BBQ). Don't know if this a second Winterville location or if it will replace the current location.

Westpointe Park Opens

•Located off Statonsburg Road, near SW Bypass
•Phases II and III of the park, which would expand the recreational area into more of a regional park. Plans would incorporate an entrance into the park off Stantonsburg Road. There are plans for a community building, tennis and basketball courts, a multi-use field and a larger walking trail

A place to play: Neighborhood welcomes Westpointe Park - Daily Reflector

For those in the know *cough* bikepedguy *cough*, is this park only accessible through the neighborhood/Gretna Drive? That’s how I’m reading this. That said, one of the critiques I have of newer parks is that they’re always for either children or parents, young adults are always left out of the equation.

The new Pizza Hut is replacing the one on Old Tar Rd.

Not development news, but interesting nonetheless

As I work on a semi-personal project, which should be unveiled relatively soon, I came across the history of the Robert Lee Humber House which is located at 117 W. 5th Street in Uptown across from the State Theater. Robert Lee Humber, dubbed Greenville's greatest contribution to the world, was a lawyer, peace advocate and lover of art born in Greenville and raised in that house. He was instrumental in the development of the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, which was the first publicly funded art museum in the nation.

Humber also dreamed of a World Federation and had a resolution adopted by sixteen states to urge the President to push for a world government. In a sense, one might argue his ideas were the precursor for United Nations we have today. On a personal note, Humber graduated from Harvard and Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, served in WWI.

It’s so cool that someone from Greenville of all places was so instrumental to, frankly, the world and yet I imagine most of us have never heard of him. I’m not sure what his house is now, but more definitely should be done with it. Listed below are my sources:

westpointe park is currently accessible only through the neighborhood, but the plan is for there to be an entrance off of stantonsburg road (though it will lack sidewalks for those crossing from the westbound side of stantonsburg)

re: the reflector--believe they're getting a new website soon, though there has been a TON of staff turnover as adams has done some major layoffs
