Burr and The Repay Act for College Loans

Last week, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) joined 7 other senators to reintroduce legislation to reform federal student loan repayment programs. The Repay Act, which Senator Burr co-introduced in 2014, would simplify the federal student loan repayment programs by consolidating many of the benefits into two plans: a fixed repayment plan, based on a 10-year period, and a single, simplified income-driven repayment option. “The current student loan repayment programs are too complicated and too expensive,” said Senator Burr. Visit www.burr.senate.gov for more information on The Repay Act

Two Towns Making Street Changes and Improvements

Two local towns have been making improvements and changes to their downtown streets.  North Wilkesboro and Wilkesboro are in the midst of projects.  Wilkesboro announced recently that they will be going to a 4-way Stop at West and Main and at Bridge and Main beginning later this month.  Flashing lights will remain in place until everyone is familiar with the change.  Then the lights will be removed and replaced with 4-Way Stop Signs.  As 3WC reported last week, The StreetScape Project in Downtown North Wilkesboro should be finished within a few weeks.  The project is at the Intersection of Main and Ninth streets in downtown North Wilkesboro.
