    Family turns health issue to the start of a family business

    What turned out to be a health issue for Dave Cole turned into the start of a family business for he and his wife Malinda. In the early ‘90s, Dave discovered he was lactose intolerant to cow's milk, and found that goat milk and cheese worked better for him. From there, the couple raised their own goats to produce milk and cheese right in their back yard. Last month, the Coles decided to share their home made goat cheese with the public, and opened Fishing Creek Creamery.

The Holiday Season is often known as the season of giving. Despite coinciding with the NFL regular season, Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams took time out from his schedule to help fight hunger at Walter G. Byers Elementary school on Tuesday.

Williams joined volunteers from Bank of America to help feed the families of students at the school Tuesday afternoon. The volunteers distributed food, bagged fresh produce and assisted in selecting holiday staples to about 200 families.

Tuesday’s event was a part of the “Give A Meal” program. From every $1 donated from Nov. 18 through Jan. 10, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will contribute another $2, matching up to a total of $1.5 million.

Donations can be made here.
