    WITN, why won't you post comments if the word BIBLE is used in a positive way in a comment? Maybe the people who buy your commercials should know your stance on this?

    Editor's Note: I'm not sure what you're referring to. If it's within the context of the story and you've followed the posting rules, we would likely post it.

    AMAZED wrote "wins" a million dolars, NOT "winds". LOL that's the pot calling the kettle black isn't it....some people just love critizing others when they indeed do the same thing they critize others for....just goes to show EVERYONE makes mistakes NO ONE is perfect.

    @ Amazed...you are a critic of different news article and critique others work and words, how about spelling dollars correct. It is dollars and not "dolars," as you misspelled. YOU ARE A VERY COLD PERSON! they did not invite you to read the article you chose to read the article. I really appreciate the posted article. I'm sure plenty other appreciate as well.

    Amazed, everyone makes mistakes. Just b/c you've had years and years of education doesn't mean that you still cannot make a mistake. So please, find something else to criticize. And they do cover local news, if you would look at all articles maybe you would notice.

    I just he needed it and he isnt one of those people who already had money and just banked more.. I would like to congratulate Mr. Joyner!! Spend it well, and spend it wisely..Its only a million dollars.. Its not much and it will not go far in this world these days. Here on the Outer Banks, if you buy a house and a car, that million is gone!!
