Happy September 1st
It’s Emma M Nutt Day…She was the 1st female telephone operator. She went to work in Boston on this day in 1878. I don’t know for sure but I’d say she had a nasal voice and did here nails while at the switchboard. Wait a minute, that was Lilly Tomlin
A forest fire in Minnesota killed more than 400 this day in 1894
More than 100,000 died in an earthquake that hit Japan this day in 1923
The Titanic was found on the floor of the North Atlantic this day in 1985. Rose and Jack were nowhere to be found.
In the News: Some tense moments at Alexander Central Wednesday but all is well…Unemployment drops locally…Tyson making major expansion in Wilkes County… Man charged in connection with fatal Watauga County fire…Iredell man torches his shed trying to kill spiders…Fair is underway in Catawba County
Chance of a Shower today
ACHS Soccer down Davie….JV Football kicks off season tonight…Some comments from Coach Carter…Let the fun begin, College Football is back…App goes to Rocky Top….Panthers host Steelers tonight…Mike Trout in LA Freeway crash
Happy Birthday: Barry Gibb, Dr Phil, Gloria Estefan, Kenny Mayne
Kudos to the staff at Alexander Central High for their quick action Wednesday. A situation turned out to be a hoax but they handled it well..Great response from Taylorsville Police and the Alexander County Sheriffs Office
I crossed the Highway 127 Bridge Wednesday (I didn’t spend a dime on the other side by the way) and thought of that poor soul who drowned Tuesday morning. What a tragedy !
It looks like that tropical storm could push some moisture our way but then again maybe not. Looks like the North Carolina coast is going to get a drenching though
In so far as I’m concerned Fall begins next Tuesday. I know that’s not the case but it should be. Don’t you consider the day after Labor Day to be Autumn ?
Good Luck App State tonight at Rocky Top !!! I never have liked Orange
I had my car washed Wednesday, they charged me an E.F.F. (Excessive Filth Fee)
