    A sex toy and video mail order business, once picketed by ministers and searched by postal investigators, has been named business of the year in Orange County.
    PHE Inc., the parent company of Adam & Eve, is a top citizen and a major taxpayer, said Margaret Cannell, executive director of the Hillsborough-Orange County Chamber of Commerce. The business has also helped with the local animal shelter and a family violence prevention center.

    "We didn't have any problem giving them the award," said chamber president Robbin Taylor-Hall. "We don't look at some of the items they sell."

    I don't know if they do it there, but here out Chamber always has monthly mixers at member's businesses. That would be an interesting one to attend. Wonder what the door prizes would be? LOL

    As a resident of NC this doesn't surprise me.It is actually quite in line with our standard hypocrisy.We like to claim membership in the almighty Bible belt club publically,but when the dollar bill is involved who cares just pay your tax on time and the State will reward ya.
