    Mount Airy light display benefits foster children
    Glenn Zior's neighbors in Mount Airy have never been bothered by lights flashing four hours every night and traffic filling the narrow street as car after car stops to watch and maybe leave a donation, he said. In fact, many have asked him when his...
