If you're in the Raleigh area and noticed your mail never got delivered to you, you may want to keep reading.

A recent audit discovered that thousands of pieces of mail were undelivered with some being left sitting on shelves for months, at the Avent Ferry Post Office. Auditors from The United States Postal Service Inspector General's Office say during the single day they visited the location, more than 6,000 pieces of mail were undelivered.

Thoughts?

After a while of waiting on an update, it looks like there's some money coming our way when it comes to President Biden's stimulus package.

The House of Representatives voted to approve the $1.9 stimulus package.

The package includes $1,400 for those who make less than $70,000 a year, decreasing the more someone makes. If you make over $100,000 a year, the money will not be where you reside. The package does not include a check for those making more than $100,000 and of course some people did not agree with that.

No Republicans voted to pass the bill and 2 Democrats actually voted against it as well.

Thoughts?
