In an effort to address issues that accompany what the city manager calls "growing pains," the Lumberton City Council unanimously approved an ordinance restricting game rooms within the municipality.

City officials hope the 11-page-long ordinance will shield Lumberton residents from the criminal activity that seems attracted to game rooms, which already operate illegally according to numerous law enforcement officials. Pick up a copy of The Examiner March 12 for the full story.
