Normally, the town of Conover is filled with spooky, seasonal events throughout October that let families like yours celebrate the haunts of Halloween with your community. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, public gatherings aren’t encouraged in North Carolina, so it’s a wise idea to stay home and limit your party to just close relatives.
To help make the month special, here are some ideas for how you can celebrate Halloween at home with your loved ones.
Stage an elaborate themed dinner party in which the dishes and plating have spooky inspirations: bloody mocktails, “finger” foods, and oozing dips are great inclusions. You can even play a murder mystery role-playing activity afterward.
A favorite activity for us at Village Motors of Conover, our staff loves picking and etching shapes in pumpkins to display in the window. Bored of carving only pumpkins every year? Use this as an opportunity to carve other fruits or vegetables. Challenge your family to come up with the most creative food to carve.
Gingerbread haunted house
Gingerbread houses aren’t just for Christmas; you can also make a haunted graveyard out of cookies and icing! Use cotton candy as cobwebs, strawberry jelly as blood splatters, or candy skulls for skeletons — your options are only limited by your creativity!

Did you know more used cars are bought and sold than new cars every year? Still, despite their popularity, used cars can sometimes get a bad rap. If you’ve ever been surprised by hidden damages, you might be understandably cautious about picking up another ride that’s been previously-loved. That’s where Certified Pre-Owned programs come in. What are Certified Pre-Owned (or CPO) vehicles, though?
Requirements and Standards
When you buy a car through a CPO program,
you’re purchasing a vehicle that meets specific requirements. Usually, the car
has to be under a certain age and mileage and must qualify for the program by
meeting the standards of a long, rigorous mechanical and cosmetic inspection.
To offer extra reassurances, used cars
purchased through a CPO program come with the backing of several warranties.
Often, manufacturers will offer to cover anything that needs to be repaired
within a short time of the initial purchase, and many powertrain warranties on
CPO vehicles last several years.
In addition to warranties, you’re likely to
get some additional perks when you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle. 24/7
roadside assistance is pretty common, as is the car itself coming with a free
Vehicle History Report and the option of dealership maintenance plans.

If you are in the market for a vehicle and you have been denied a loan from some banks because of your credit history, you might be left questioning why your credit score even matters at all.
Banks use your credit score as a quick vector check of your creditworthiness,
or how likely you are to repay a loan. Low credit scores often indicate a
limited credit history, defaulted payments, or a high debt-to-income ratio.
None of these factors are catastrophic, though. Whether you have a short credit
history or one that highlights a few mistakes, you can still get into the car of
The Impact: Banks
typically view low credit scores as red flags, and could deny you outright for
an auto loan. Without the self-sufficiency afforded by a vehicle or the
opportunity to improve a bad score, the credit score cycle can seem self-perpetuating.
If your score is just high enough to be approved, you will still be subject to
high-interest rates that can make repayment difficult.
