    LOL, and the owners of this establishment were worried about the Racing League they used to have there. That part of Raleigh is part of the proud "blue" heritage of the city:)

    The victim and the assailant must have broken in the park (since it was closed). Awful way to ring in 2017. Prayers for the victim and the families of both.
