    Come on Fayetteville. You can do better than that. We need a murder to read about. You were on a roll there for about the last month. At least one every 24hrs. I used to have to go to Fatalburg at least once a week for 4 years for work. Was glad to leave that job. Had not been back in 25 years until about a month ago. Hope I don't have to go back again, ever.

    I didn't know that banks were open on Sunday evenings. Is this the correct information?
