Where in Carolina Country is This?
The December “Where Is This” photo by Wake Electric member Larry Pearlman features Lee’s Grocery Store and Sinclair Station, located on Highway 39 just east of Zebulon in Wake County. Libby Cox wrote that she and her sisters often walked to the store to buy penny candy and visit with her Aunt Annie and Uncle Wade Lee, who owned the store in the 1940s–1950s before the current owners, the Upchurch family. Many readers drive by the landmark to and from the Carolina Mudcats baseball stadium. One reader commented that it is such an inviting place to just sit on the benches and sip on a bottle coke with peanuts, a reminder of simpler times. Today, children shout “I spy a dinosaur” as their family car zips down the road. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Rob Forster of Wake Forest, a Blue Ridge Energy member.
