Sneads Ferry's New Coffee House With Free Wi-Fi Internet

Yesterday afternoon I had the distinct pleasure to visit with Chris at the Trading Post Coffee House. It was quite refreshing to learn Sneads Ferry now has a brand new specialty coffee house for Cappucinno, Latte and Frapps as well a Chai Tea, Hot Chocolate and so much more!

From the welcoming friendly attitude by the staff to the relaxing atmosphere of the room, the Trading Post Coffee House makes for a great setting to enjoy a cup of coffee as well as the bagels, Muffins, scones and/or cinnamon rolls. Then there are a number of deserts for those wanting that something special later in the day like brownies (iced or with nuts), very berry deep dish tart, chocolate confusion cake, orange Florida sunshine, cheesecake (various) along with other homemade items. Whew!

Then there is that something special for the business person or just the one who must get to the Internet even when on vacation...

The Trading Post Coffee House offers FREE Wi-Fi Internet access! Just bring your laptop that is wi-fi enabled and sit down with a cup of the Trading Post Coffee House's fresh coffee to enjoy taking care of business or just surfing the web. What a great way to get away and still get online while the Internet portion is absolutely free. That's just a deal too good to pass up.

Now, before you think that the prices of drinks and food must be high, at the time of this writing coffee prices range from $1.25 for 12 oz regular coffee to $3.85 for 20 oz Cappuccino/Latte/Frapps. Prices for breakfast items and deserts are also very reasonably priced.

Bring the family or drop by with a friend or two, the Trading Post Coffee House is a great place to relax, unwind and get on the Internet if the mood strikes you.

Congratulations to Dixon High Men's Soccer!


To capture the 1-A North Carolina State Men's Soccer Championship, the Dixon Bulldogs scored three second-half goals to rally from a 1-0 halftime deficit and defeat Polk County 3-1.

With Polk County grabbing a 1-0 advantage in the game’s first 10 minutes on a goal (Russell Kooistra), the Bulldogs retaliated with 2 of their own in a span of 3:35 early in the second half and then put it away with a goal with 4:25 to play. Cory Bowman of the Bulldogs tied the score at the 44:07 mark, and then freshman midfielder Cameron Pitz scored at 47:42 to give Dixon the lead for good. A goal by the speedy sophomore forward James Hansley late in the contest put it away for Dixon. Dixon played most of the game without its leading scorer, Sean Oliveira, who suffered a head injury and was unable to continue. Dixon’s balance and depth made the difference in the contest, especially in the second half. Dixon senior forward Justin Oliver, was voted the Most Valuable Player in the Championship. The Bulldogs earned their first NCHSAA men’s soccer championship in a rematch of the 2003 title game in which Polk beat the Bulldogs 2-1. Dixon ended the season with a record of 14-5-2 after being 4-4-2 at one point.

If you see coach Kevin Hicks, assistant coach Brown or any of the players, let them know that Sneads Ferry supports the Dixon Bulldogs and we are all so proud of them!
