A thirty-pound wooden flea will drop in Eastover to commemorate the New Year. And in the Western reaches of the state a live possum will be lowered, not dropped, 18 feet inside of some Plexiglas. Clay Logan is the organizer of the alcohol-free, family-oriented event.<br> Fri, 30 Dec 2011 20:10:00 +0000 Jeff Tiberii 3619 at http://wunc.org
