Hello NCRonline readers,
Our offices will be closed December 24-25, and we have decided it will be easier on our staff to turn off the comments system for the weekend, effective 7 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24. You may notice that the comments section will be absent from the website through the weekend. Comments will return Monday, Dec. 28.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays all! We will see you Monday!
