Flanagan upsets Keitany, ends US drought at NYC Marathon



 By Jake Seiner | AP November 5 at 12:09 PM

NEW YORK Shalane Flanagan dethroned Mary Keitany on Sunday and became the first American woman to win the New York City Marathon since 1977, potentially ending her decorated career with her first major marathon victory.

Keitany had won three straight New York marathons, but Flanagan pulled away from the Kenyan great with about three miles to go. Flanagan finished with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 26 minutes, 53 second, about a minute faster than Keitany. The American cried and yelled as she approached the finish line all alone.

xx Chatham County issues temporary water boil notice
September 27, 2017, 06:24:41 PM by Wilderness Voice


CHATHAM COUNTY (WTVD) -- A temporary water boil was issued for northeast Chatham County Wednesday evening.

According to a news release, a ruptured water main led to dropped water system pressure in a portion of the county's north water system.

The leak has been isolated and is being repaired.

"We are issuing the boil water notice as a precaution due to the pressure drop in the system," said Assistant County Manager Dan LaMontagne in a news release. "We do not expect this to last more than one day."
Chatham County has already started calling all affected residences and businesses to alert them of the notice.

The affected areas include:
Manns Chapel Road east of Great Ridge Parkway
All business within Cole Park Plaza including all customers of AQUA along Plaza Drive
All customers north of the Manns Chapel Road intersection along Hwy 15-501 including Old Lystra Road and the Wal-Mart Shopping Center

Chatham County will announce when the boil water advisory has been lifted.

Until that time, residents in these areas should use bottled water or boil the county water before using it for drinking, bathing, dental care, making ice, washing dishes, and food preparation.

If you have questions, call Water Utilities at (919) 542-8270.

xx Confusing road sign
September 18, 2017, 06:42:57 AM by Bill Crawford
Here is something I've never been able to explain. There is a sign on Thompson Street, not far east of the Chatham Forest entrance. I understand what "Reduce Speed Ahead" means, it is a call to action by the driver. "Reduced Speed Ahead" is not. Nearest I can figure, it is an alert to a change in the physical universe going further west. Possibly a warning about reduced energy and greater mass?

xx Photo history of the construction of Jordan Dam and Lake
September 14, 2017, 06:44:55 PM by Patty52
There are some fascinating pictures and notes here.

Quote
B Everett Jordan Dam & Lake, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Time for another edition of our Throwback Thursday!

1971 Construction of the dam began! Demolition of former roads and negotiation with homeowners within soon-to-be floodplain commences.

1973 In February, the Conservation Council of North Carolina filed a water quality lawsuit which stopped construction for 11 months. Construction resumed in January of 1975.

1974 Senator B. Everett Jordan passes and the project is named in his honor.

1976 The Corps issued a notice to impound to begin filling the lake. This led to a full court trial by the conservation group that opposed the action. As a result the dam site acted as a dry reservoir with numerous temporary rises in the lake after heavy rainfall events.

1979 One particular rain event resulted in the lake temporarily filling at 3 feet above normal pool elevation. During the same time testing found some problems with the foundation resulting in modifications being made to the dam.

1981 Construction of the dam is completed. Filling of the lake began in September.

1982 In February, the lake reached normal pool elevation; thus completing the project!

Box truck sought in fatal Chatham hit-and-run
Posted 11:13 a.m. today

Siler City, N.C. The State Highway Patrol is searching for a box truck believed to have been involved in a fatal hit-and-run Tuesday morning in Chatham County.

Thaj Lamar Singleton, 18, of Siler City, was northbound on U.S. Highway 421 on a moped at about 3:30 a.m. when another vehicle hit him from behind near Gilmore Lodge Road and didn't stop, authorities said. Singleton was thrown from his moped and died at the scene.

Investigators said they believe the vehicle involved was an early 2000s model International box truck, possibly white in color. Damage to the right and center of the front bumper are probable, with the headlight on the passenger side inoperable, they said.

Anyone with information about the truck or its driver is asked to call the Highway Patrol's Raleigh Communications Center at 1-800-662-7956 or the patrol's Chatham County District Office at 919-742-2124.
