    seriously? Mods, really? I LIVE in Goldsboro and you won't put my comment through simply because, according to YOUR news outlet Goldsboro really DOES equal murder? That is the ONLY thing you ever post pertaining to Goldsboro. Believe it or not, there are a lot of GOOD things that make the news here, too, but like everything else, Wilson & R-Mount included, you're only going to focus on the bad. And then block access when called on it. Doubt this one will see the light of day, either, but at least YOU will.
