OPINION: A transformative day

Yesterday was a big one in North Carolina. We awoke to news that Apple is going to build a new campus in Wake County and then, in the afternoon, we learned, as expected, the state will get an additional Congressional seat.

With students heading back to school is just around the corner, I thought I would do a back-to-school treat. I found a great recipe for apple cupcakes on Pinterest, and although they are certainly not as healthy as the real deal, they are so cute and perfect for any back-to-school celebrations.

I would love to see your back-to-school cupcake creations, so please post pictures to The Richmond Observer’s Facebook page!
