Dr. Burton agrees that cost issues are a major difference between ER treatment and urgent care options. “There is a substantial price difference, but it depends upon the medical problem and what level of treatment is required before you can make that comparison,” Dr. Burton says. “In general, urgent care charges are less. The ER is equipped to handle much more complicated, costly interventions.” There are other reasons visiting an emergency room for a relatively minor situation may cost you significantly more than visiting your primary care physician or an urgent care facility.

When you mention the word "moonshine," you're bound to get some type of reaction, whether it's a smile or quite the opposite.   But in the town of Boones Mill, an alcohol still is causing quite a controversy after an action by the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Jerry Brown runs the “Hillbilly "Shack" and makes authentic barbeque. He says the still was simply a prop. But authorities weren't convinced. Things went haywire when an off-duty agent spotted the still, which was given by a customer more than a year ago.  “They flipped it over up on its side and they just started busting and hacking-- busting and hacking--and they flipped it on the other side and the same thing until they got it ripped in half,” said Brown.

During the second week of February, people were lining up to buy tickets "They told me it's just a lot, 25 million or something like that, so I just decided to play," one customer told WDBJ7.  "Yeah, I'm just hoping I'll be lucky this time.
