WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - I have another first for this segment - a "Your Turn" potpourri.  I'm doing this so I can clean some messages out of my inbox.

Miller wants to know where all those lottery proceeds are being spent.  He writes:

"It is easy enough to find out where to buy a ticket and where the latest winner bought their ticket. I want to see where the benefits to our education system are being dispersed.  It should be as easy to find as where I can buy lottery tickets."

Roger wants to change the way restaurants post their sanitation scores.  He says:

"I believe that sanitation grades should be posted on the front door of restaurants.  This would be a big incentive for restaurants to keep a high score.  Potential customers could decide at the door whether or not to go in."

And Harry is concerned about highway safety.  He writes:

"It's amazing to me that there is such an uproar about the roadside memorials being a source of distraction when we allow the new lighted advertisement signs to sprout up around town. These signs use a lighting that one can't help but be distracted by."

That's three mini "Your Turns" for the price of one.  To comment on this segment, or anything else, email me at
