xx KKK burned a cross in Asheboro ~
February 02, 2018, 07:22:05 PM by Wilderness Voice


ASHEBORO, N.C. The first unpleasant tug of history came before the election, when the yards around Dexter Trogdon Jr.s house started blooming with Confederate flags. Then last spring, the Ku Klux Klan announced plans to burn a cross in town. A man apparently irked with his black neighbor hung a noose in his yard, and Trogdon started hearing a disturbing new view from some white people: that slavery wasnt so bad for African Americans. The 49-year-old bail bondsman knew racial division would be part of the picture when he moved back to this rural, majority-white town where he grew up. But there was one factor he did not expect: the presidential election. We were actually getting better, said

The Chatham County Sheriffs Office is searching for two men who shot a resident during a home invasion Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies responded to a home in Brittany Lane in Chapel Hill at about 2:30 p.m. and found a 56-year-old man with gunshot wounds to both legs. The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment, but his condition was unknown.

Authorities said the men were white with facial hair and in their late-20s to mid-30s. They were wearing jeans and black or brown winter coats with hoods.

The men were last seen leaving the area on foot.

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.
