The Board of Trustees decided on an option to build a new gym for ECU basketball. So more construction over on the athletics side

That's a good thing.

It's unfortunate for Beaufort County that UHS wants no part of their hospital. They really, really need the money. I'm told by an insider there that the numbers of indigent patients that simply can't or won't pay their bills is just too high for UHS to absorb.

I'm not denying your source, but the last public news I saw, was UHS was looking at BCH, along with a couple of for-profit hospital chains.

I really hope BCH would end up under the UHS brand. Operating a hospital is a hard thing to do. UHS seems to know what they are doing.

I went to Mello Mushroom's website and went into their franchise section. I asked if anyone had applied for a franchise in Greenville, NC. They emailed me back saying, "We do have a Mello Mushroom coming to Greenville, NC". They did not volunteer any more information.

Nice work! Went to Dickey's BBQ today, over by Hastings Ford. Was pleasantly surprised...it's Texas style, which I don't know if it will go over well here because vinegar based BBQ is king. I'll probably go back.

I e-mailed them, and they never e-mailed me back. Glad to have something concrete!

Lithuania_ Thanks for the info about Dickey's BBQ. The last time I was by there, it was still under construction.

It is a tough thing to do. UHS has to be very careful at this time. Pitt operates in the red and funding from Raleigh is drying up. I don't know how much more of this UHS can stand before quality of care starts to diminish.

Dickey's was more oriented to pulled pork and brisquets, not fried chicken. They did have chicken...think it was marinated grilled chicken. Food was good...they had one person stationed behind the counter who actually cut the meat. You could either get a sandwich plate or a meal plate. It wasn't cheap, though...think you are paying for the meat quality.
