Sweltering heat, power outages greet Louisiana evacuees returning from Hurricane Delta

Many returned to find that Delta, dissipating substantially as it drifted farther inland on Sunday, had ripped away temporary tarpaulin roofs installed over their homes in late August after Hurricane Laura, a more powerful storm, struck with devastating force.

Delta, the 10th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season to make U.S. landfall, churned ashore on Friday evening near the southwestern Louisiana town of Creole as a Category 2 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson intensity scale, packing maximum sustained winds

‘Yellowstone’ Season 3 will be streaming soon on Peacock.

That will change, however, as of next month. On November 22, Yellowstone Season 3 is coming to Peacock, where it will join the first two seasons of the Kevin Costner-starring western. This will make Peacock the only place where viewers can watch all three seasons of the show, which was officially the most-watched cable show of 2020.

Though Peacock does have a free tier where viewers can watch many of the streamer’s shows for free with ads, Yellowstone will mostly be behind the streamer’s paywall. The first-ever

Lowe’s Foundation grant to focus on preserving affordable housing along Beatties Ford Road

Homeowners in west Charlotte can spruce up their homes courtesy of a $1.33 million grant from the Lowe’s Foundation.

The foundation awarded the grant to Charlotte’s housing and neighborhood services to help rehabilitate and preserve single-family affordable housing along the Beatties Ford Road Corridor. 

Funding will support the city’s Safe Home Rehabilitation Program, which provides grants to homeowners for critical repairs that bring their home into compliance with the city’s housing code and other property improvements. The program also helps older residents remain in their homes and families earning 60% of the area’s median income avoid gentrification by remaining in place.

Focus areas include safety, affordable housing, skilled trades and technology, along with small businesses impacted by the pandemic.

Baileys’ Restaurants to debut new ghost kitchen concept this Thursday

‘Tis the season for ghosts…and ghost kitchens.

In simple terms, a ghost kitchen is a restaurant without seats, a narrow-focus pivot created to cater to the burgeoning food pickup and delivery business. Ghost kitchens tend to focus on a single, popular item. Recently, KC-style ribs, sandwiches, and other chicken wing riffs have launched out of kitchens in St. Louis, and a smashburger ghost kitchen is on the horizon.

Last month, Dave and Kara Bailey, owners of Baileys’ Restaurants, introduced Wing Ding Dong, a chicken-wing based ghost kitchen concept operating out of Baileys’ Range.

This Thursday, they plan to roll out a new concept: Playing Ketchup, which will feature all-beef “ripper” hot dogs and brats—specifically the Grant’s Farm brat from G&W Meat, prepared in Zwickel, onion, and seasoning. 

The name was a snap for the Baileys. “Double entendres are the name of the game in ghost kitchens, apparently,” says Dave, adding

Beth Sholom Village takes the health of its residents and patients very seriously. So, when COVID-19 hit and workers learned seniors were high risk, the facility made some big policy changes.

“When somebody comes into our building for the very first time no matter whether they are coming from home, from the hospital, another facility, they go on what we created as an isolation unit,” explained Marcia Brodie, Marketing Director for Beth Sholom.

She said she feels like coming to work every day is one of the safest places she can be. “Every single staff member, I think we maybe have 320, is tested every single week. Tuesdays
