excessive heat warning in effect until 8 p.m.

From the National Weather Service in Raleigh:

1118 am EDT Fri Jul 23 2010

...Excessive heat warning in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued an excessive
heat warning...which is in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening.
The heat advisory is no longer in effect. 

The combination of very high humidity and temperatures near 100
degrees will produce dangerous heat indices at or above 110
degrees this afternoon. Additional heat advisories or warnings will
likely be needed through the weekend as the heat wave continues.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
fluids...stay in an air-conditioned room...stay out of the
sunshine...and check up on relatives and neighbors. Heat of this
magnitude can be particularly deadly for the elderly...those with
illnesses...and for outdoor workers such as farm laborers.
Stay safe, everyone.

Summer's starting to wind down now. Before you know it, kids will be back in school.

7 July paper

Sorry about the delay on this one; I was out last week on vacation to my first trip since I've lived in the state to the Outer Banks. I have to admit, they lived up to the hype!

But anyway, here's what we had in last week's paper:
We also had a ton of Fourth of July photos and pictures from the production of "The Ugly Duckling," among others.

I hope everyone had a great week.

first issue in July 2010

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July!

Here's what made it into this week's paper:
  • CELEBRATING THE FOURTH OF JULY. We've got photos galore from Independence Day events in Caldwell and Schley.
  • SCHOOL BOARD ELECTS CHAIR. Tony McKnight was elected school board chair, while new member Donna Coffey was elected vice chair.
  • DTCC 'A BRIDGE,' DIRECTOR SAYS. Carlo Robustelli is settling in as director of Durham Tech's Orange County campus quite nicely.
  • FAMILY FUN DAY TO OFFER EDUCATION, HISTORY, FUN ALL IN ONE. This summer's second Family Fun Day is set for this Saturday, July 10, in Hillsborough.
  • Plus, photos from "The Ugly Duckling," and much more!
