xx Diagonal parking PBO
December 14, 2016, 09:57:32 AM by Muddylaces
I prefer the way diagonal parking looks in the downtown area.   But I read with some amusement on the chatlist the number of people who are against parallel parking downtown because they are not capable of doing it.   If you are unable to parallel park or incapable of learning to parallel park in a standard space please turn your keys in.   

Here is a little how-to for those that need a refresher:

xx Serious MVA in Chatham Co ~
November 25, 2016, 05:04:32 PM by Wilderness Voice


CHATHAM COUNTY (WTVD) -- State troopers have identified the people involved in a serious crash on Thursday afternoon in Chatham County.

Four people were hospitalized after the two-car crash involving a Subaru and a Honda on US 64 westbound at NC 751.

The State Highway Patrol told an ABC11 crew at the scene that the Honda was stopped at a red light going west on 64 when it was rear-ended by the Subaru.

Four men in the Honda were injured. Three were life-flighted to UNC Hospital in critical condition.

The driver was treated at UNC for minor injuries and later released. Troopers identified him as Mauricio Amado Perez Vasquez, 35, of Siler City.

His passengers, Mario Perez Vasquez, Elias Perez and Jesus Perez Vasquez, all of Siler City, remain in the hospital. Troopers described them as stable.

The driver of the Subaru, Matthew Clark Willis, 30, of Raleigh, was not hurt. Troopers said Willis told them he was trying to pick up his cell phone, which he had dropped, when the wreck occurred.
