Amtrak will host an inaugural run of eastern North Carolina's new Thruway service on Oct. 2.

I don't recall if I posted this yet, but the Intermodal Center's official name (as of now) is Greenville Transportation and Activity Center.

Two new cell towers were approved for the Medical District, bringing Greenville's total tower number to 55.

Greenville Utilities authorized spending to begin work on a third point-of-delivery substation. The merger of Duke Energy and Progress Energy included a commitment by the new company to update transmission lines through the state. It will be off of Sandy Mills Road, which is southeastish of Greenville.

anyone know other places in Greenville to buy molding besides Lowes? Garris Evans - Home Builders? I don't know if you can just walk in those places & buy a few pieces or if they are for contractors.

Garris Evans and Home Builders are really just large hardware stores, anyone can buy from them. It's been years but I have driven into Home Builders and bought lumber.

They will sell lumber to anybody that walks through the door. The only difference is the amount of discount the contractor gets, if any.

10th Street is being repaved from Evans to the railroad tracks now. That road was horrible. Glad to see it.

Live in Atlanta now, but our local Publix manager here says they are moving into Greenville. Double checked several times to make sure he means NC and not SC. Greenville, SC already has several Publix anyway. I did some looking around on Google and of course I can't find anything to confirm this. I did recall the "legend" that Bob Ingle (of Ingle's grocery stores) in NC and whomever owns Publix were good friends and agreed not to go into each others home state. Publix is based in FL. I did find other people recounting this online. Mr. Ingle died March 2011 and in January 2012 Publix did announce that they are moving into NC. First stores will be in Charlotte. So, while this could be a rumor it sounds possible that they will be in Greenville in the next few years.
