Winston Salem New Baseball Stadium will not be ready this season. - 05/28/09 06:06 AM
Just read in the Winston Salem journal. Disappointing news for baseball fans............. Work on the stadium is at a standstill, stopped cold by ownership negotiations between team co-owners Billy Prim and Andrew "Flip" Filipowski. Prim is trying to buy out Filipowski's share of the team. The two, business partners and brothers-in-law, have owned the team together since 2002. They have been negotiating the buyout since at least November. Prim has said that construction will resume when the ownership negotiation is complete and that the negotiations were almost finished. The team will play the rest of its home games at Wake Forest Baseball (0 comments)

Reminder of the $8,000 tax credit for home buyers - 05/08/09 08:33 AM
There's a nice windfall for some homebuyers in the economic stimulus bill. First-time buyers can claim a credit worth $8,000 - or 10% of the home's value, whichever is less - on their 2008 or 2009 taxes. A big plus is that the credit is refundable, meaning tax filers see a refund of the full $8,000 even if their total tax bill - the amount of withholding they paid during the year plus anything extra they had to pony up when they filed their returns - was less than that amount. Scenario 1: Your final tax liability is normally $6,000. You've (1 comments)
