WILMINGTON, N.C. -- More than six inches of snow in Asheville means a little extra in the wallet for customers of a Wilmington jewelry store.

Perry's Emporium owner Alan Perry promised to refund the cost of jewelry bought at his store between Nov. 26 and Dec. 11 if Asheville got more than three inches of snow on Christmas Day.

Multiple media outlets report that Perry is making good on his bet. He estimates the payout will be around $400,000, which will be covered by an insurance policy. Checks should be ready in about 45 days.

Perry is undaunted by losing the bet. He says he's thinking of a similar promotion for Valentine's Day, based on how much snow Asheville gets on Feb. 14.

Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
