wo days of rain, as much as 61â „2 inches in the Archdale-Trinity area, revealed the effectiveness of stormwater flow.



While stormwater may have looked like a ‘flood’ at Creekside Park, the system handled the 4 to 5 inches of rain in a reasonable time, said Archdale Photo by Marsha Ellison Stormwater Program Manager D.J. SeĂąeres.

A Trinity family was forced to leave their home about 4 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, but was able to return later in the day. Water did not enter the home of Samuel and Wanda Cumbie, of 6315 Twinwood Court, but the water was so high that the truck parked in the backyard was covered. Guil-Rand Fire Department assisted the

couple out of the mobile home and took them to safety. “Fortunately, the water didn’t come inside, but it almost did,� said Wanda Cumbie. “We are waiting to find out if there is any damage to our duct work or air conditioning.� “The residence wasn’t flooded, but the possibility was there,� said Bobby Bingham, Firefighter III, of Guil-Rand Fire Department. Firefighters urged the Cumbies and their neighbors to watch the water levels. The heavy rains revealed that some areas need stormwater improvements. SEE RAIN ON PAGE 9

hree seats on the Randolph County Board of Education are up for grabs and the six candidates vying for those spots will spend the next month campaigning for your vote. BY ROBYN HANKINS

Two long-time Board members will not seek re-election. Grady Lawson of Ramseur is retiring after 40 years and Paul Guthrie of Trinity, who taught school for 31 years and served on the Board for eight years, has decided to step down. However, the six candidates who are running for office, including incumbent LaVerne Williams of Asheboro and for-

Forum Oct. 14 Questions may be submitted to the Archdale-Trinity Chamber of Commerce’s candidates forum set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, at Archdale United Methodist Church. The questions must be submitted prior to the start of the forum, said Chamber President Beverly Nelson. In addition to candidates for Board of Education, those running for municipal, county, state and federal offices were invited to participate. For more information about the forum, call the Chamber at 434-2073.

mer Board member Tommy McDonald of Randleman, will travel the county to talk with people door-to-door and speak at forums and events. “I’ll be out there as much as I can, but this county is big,� Williams said. “I want to know if someone has something to say (about the schools).� McDonald, who lost his seat in 2008, also is gearing up. “I’ve been getting back into the swing of things,� he told the NEWS. “We’re putting out signs, talking to people and have been asked to speak at some forums.� McDonald said he will not speak at all forums or events. He intends to avoid politically charged situations. “The two times I was elected (to the Board) I did not speak at any of those events,� he recalled. “Last time I tried to hit them all and lost!� That doesn’t mean, however, that he’s not talking to people. “I felt like the Randleman area needed the representation on the Board,� McDonald told the NEWS. “I’ve talked to a lot of people who feel the same, and I was asked to run again.� Newcomer Brian Biggs of Trinity said his entire campaign strategy rests on talking with people. “I’ve been going to lots of festivals and I’ve done a couple of forums, but I’m mostly knocking on doors across the county,� Biggs said. “If you see lots of my signs in people’s yards, it’s because I’m out talking to them.� Biggs hopes that meeting people will yield better results than spending a lot of money. He likes the forums because people have some of the same questions, even if he doesn’t have all the answers. “I’m just a dad, not a politician,� he told the NEWS. “When I go home I have to

Blessing of the animals


Sophie gives a thank-you kiss to Angela Bennett for taking her to the first Blessing of the Animals held Oct. 3 by Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church at Creekside Park. Pastor Roger Weisner estimated 30 to 40 pets were blessed, mostly dogs, but one cat, too. The church provided refreshments for dogs and their owners, as well as door prizes for the smallest, oldest and best-dressed pet. Molly, pictured left, was among those who wore special attire for the event. More photos, by Lisa DeLuca McCarville, are on page 12.

After decades of waiting, the water is on! D

id you drink a glass of water or a cup of coffee this morning? If you live in Archdale, that water likely came from the Randleman Regional Reservoir. After decades of planning, construction and finally tests, the water was turned on Monday.

BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS The John F. Kime Water Treatment Plant passed its state and federal tests with flying colors. A letter from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, released Sept. 21, gave permission for the plant to release water to the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority’s customers, including Archdale. A Sept. 14 test and many visits showed that the treated water exceeded safe requirements for drinking water and

that the plant has working operational systems, procedures and trained personnel in place. The plant, which has multiple treatment systems, has to use all of them for at least three months. After that, written permission from the ENR will be required to bypass any of the systems. As a supplier, the plant has to regularly test the water it sends out, but it’s up to each customer, including Archdale, to test the water within the city’s system. Archdale was purchasing water from two suppliers, the city of High Point and Davidson Water Inc. Archdale turned off the valves from High Point two weeks ago. “We’re testing valves, turning valves off, making sure we’ve got pressure,� City Manager Jerry Yarborough told the NEWS last week. The city’s water tower supplies pressure. Many residents noticed water “leaks� during the past

few weeks — including running water at a fire hydrant across from Holly Ridge Golf Links — as the city tested and flushed water lines. The plant started sending out water Oct. 4. As Archdale receives water from Randleman, the valves from Davidson Water will also be turned off. The SCADA (electronic monitoring) system has not yet been installed, but that won’t stop the flow of water, said Lewis Dorsett, city councilman and PTRWA Board member. City personnel will just have to read the meters manually. When SCADA is installed, pumps and meters can be monitored at an office or control center, without having to send out people in a truck. SCADA will also send alerts if something isn’t working correctly.

Rage loses close contest G

uil-Rand Youth Soccer’s 10-and-under team, the Rage, gave up three second-half goals to drop a hard-fought match to the Cosmos, 6-4, on Saturday in Triad Challenge League play.

The Rage, 1-3-1 for the season, took an early lead on a score by Kevin Dominguez, but the Cosmos struck back with three goals of their own. A second goal from Kevin and a goal by Leo Dominguez put the Rage back on equal footing by halftime. In the second half, the Rage regained the lead with Leo Dominguez’s second goal of the contest, but the Cosmos kept up the attack to knock in three more goals, including two in the last five minutes of play to put the game

away for good. The Storm continued to pepper the goal with shots, but the Cosmos turned back each offensive attempt. Jake Clodfelter and Omar Castrellon combined to make several saves in goal for the Rage, including a shot that Jake Clodfelter grabbed before it could cross the goal line. On defense, the Rage’s Jack McCroskey snuffed out several offensive challenges to keep the game within reach until late. The Rage plays at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, at the YMCA fields on Turnpike Road in Trinity. Submitted by Guil-Rand Youth Soccer Association

Storm wins at Wilkesboro T

he Guil-Rand Youth Soccer’s Storm grabbed their second win of the Triad Challenge League season with a 3-1 win over the Explosion Blue on Saturday in Wilkesboro. Logan Parry struck first for the Storm and followed up with a second goal when she put back her own rebound shot to give the Storm a 2-0 lead at halftime. Storm defenders Logan Welborn and Priscilla McCroskey preserved the first half shut-out with defensive field play. In the second half, Logan Welborn and Carson Brown continued to exploit seams in the Explosion Blue defense, but the Storm couldn’t find the net until Lia Whitaker intercepted a pass and fed the ball to Lauren Welborn, who gave it to Logan Welborn to score her third goal. Only a late goal prevented the Storm’s Caitlin Swiggett from getting a shutout for the game. Rachel Hunt and Sarah Moran anchored the tough Storm defense, and Alexa Altizer and MacKenzie Allison contributed to the offensive attack as well.

Archdale-Trinity Panthers

The guest speaker for Saturday’s game was Trinity High School Head Football Coach Alex Mebane. The flag football team, coached by Frank “Jo Pa” Smallwood, remains undefeated. The past weekend they were down 14-0 at halftime and made a big comeback. Christian Long, Blake Page and Garrett Moser all had scores. The entire team played well on defense to hold the Southwest Randolph team to 30 yards of offense in the second half. The final score was 26-20. The rookie team, for ages 7-8, lost a tough game to Southeast Guilford 26-21. Christain Langendofer and Noah Hill had great games blocking. They led the way for Gabe Hernandez, who scored twice, and Luke Gentry, who scored once. Austin Biggs had five quarterback sacks and scored 3 extra points. The team was led in defense by Harrison Moffit and Will Shores. The two made several big plays to keep the Panthers in the game. “Our kids are getting better each week,” said Head Coach Brian Biggs. The junior varsity team had a great game. After letting Southeast Guilford score first, the junior varsity team scored 20 points and only allowed one first down. Blake Reddick scored the first touchdown, which was set up by a long pass from Tanner McGee to the talented Jake Grantham. Tanner scored the next two touchdowns on runs of 26 and 67 yards, and ended up with 156 yards rushing. Coach Tommy Davis said, “Defense is what wins championships. Today our defense really got better and played well. Tanner had two timely interceptions and a fumble recovery and Drew Davis had a nice interception to stop the Falcons at the end of the game. “Brendan Stevenson, Thad Moffit, Jackson Powell, Chase McKinney and Tanner Ward all had big plays on defense. Our game captains Tyler Allen, David Braswell, Scott Tyree and Matthew Tinsley all played well. It was a great win for us.” The varsity team had two touchdown passes from McAllister Ingram to Matt Jarrett in a 26-12 loss. Joe Johnson had 22 yards rushing against a tough Southeast Guilford defense. The Panther defense was led by Jeffrey Byrd, Jonathan Linthicum and McAllister Ingram. Coach Josh Flenniken said, “We might have lost today on the scoreboard, but we improved today. Our team fought and played hard. We will learn how to win a game. Today. we learned how to fight back and stay in a game which is just as important.”

Evan Allred made it 2-0 on a penalty kick at the 22-minute mark of the first half. The Twins got on the board with a late goal in the first half. Bailey Allred closed out the scoring in the second half with a goal that was assisted by Evan Allred. Julian Lopez served in goal for the winning Thunder.

Casting into cooler crankbait weather T

he Archdale Bass Club met for the third time this season to fish High Rock Lake on Oct 2. Anticipation was high, given this is the time of year High Rock typically “turns on” with its famous crankbait bite. Several local anglers went on to fame, if not fortune, because of this fall feeding blitz. When the weather begins to cool, for whatever rea-

son, bass on this lake can’t seem to resist little wood or plastic carvings resembling the real food they eat. This outing was no exception. One of our long-term friends in the local club tournament circles posted the win Saturday. Vernon Wilson had five fish weighing 14.79 pounds. His son and boat partner, Andy, while not placing in the top three,

also had a five-fish bag for 9.19 lbs. Both caught on crankbaits. Post tourney launch ramp rumors said they did not go very far to catch them either. Second place went to our most experienced, and this year’s consistent performer, Clayton Proctor. Clayton only had three fish for 11.11 pounds and second place, but he also had the big fish of the tournament at 5.12 pounds. Clayton’s boat partner, James Lewis, hauled in third with five fish weighing 10.50 lbs. With a couple of exceptions, weights dropped off pretty quickly for the rest of the field after the top three. Notably those exceptions were Ed Brady, Jack Elkes and Brian Sorrell. Clayton, Famous James, Ed, Jack and Brian are all above-average fishermen but did not divulge their tactics. Regardless, the take-away message here seems pretty straight forward. The rule of thumb in competitive fishing is that 90 percent of the fish are in 10 percent of the locations where you expect them. This tourney certainly bears that out. Three of the top seven competitors were split between two boats. Also, of the top seven competitors at this outing, five are well known for their crankbait skills. The last qualifying tournament for the 2010 Archdale Bass Club season will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, at Randleman Lake. Early reports are that the fish are starting to move towards shal-



Admission for the rodeo, set for Saturday, Oct. 16, is two cans of food per person. The food will be donated to Community Outreach of ArchdaleTrinity. Events kick off with a church service at 11 a.m., followed by a full day of activities. Rodeo events, including calf rid-

ing and mutton busting, will go on in different arenas. Activities for other kids will be interspersed, including a stick horse race. Bounce houses and children’s games will be free. Concessions will be for sale. “It’s like a three ring circus going on,” said Tiffany Davis. She added that there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Church youth groups are especially encouraged to attend. The rodeo is open to anyone 19 and under. There are no entry fees. More than 50 buckles will be awarded, plus two all-around saddles, trophy bronc halters, chaps, leather Bible covers and more.

low water as this summer’s scorching heat begins to relent. The father-son team of Randy and Lucas Hutchins played hookie from club competition Saturday to fish with our old friends in the Ridgeway BassMasters open Oct 2 at Randleman. They won with more than 18 pounds of fish and had the lunker of the tournament at more than 7 pounds — if any added incentive is needed to show up for our event. It has certainly been a great year for fishing all around. As the days begin to get noticeably shorter, opportunities will begin to compete with high school events, hunting seasons and holidays. We recommend you take a deep breath, and get ready for a few more not-to-be-missed fishing trips on all our great Piedmont ponds. And we’ll definitely see you on the water.

The Revolutionary War in stories — and photographs? I Elizabeth thought that photographs from the Civil War era were old. That is, until I saw Maureen Taylor’s latest book, “The Last Muster: Images of the Revolutionary War Generation.”

The Revolutionary War? We didn’t have photography back then, did we? Well, no. Aside from a few experiments in earlier years, photography as we know it started about 1839 and quickly spread around the western world. Itinerant photographers appeared in the major transportation centers of North Carolina, such as Fayetteville and Raleigh, in the 1840s. A father-and-daughter team opened up a gallery in Greensboro in 1851. And in those years, people who were born in the mid- to late 1700s were still alive. People who lived through and remembered the American Revolution. People who had their pictures taken. Who better than Taylor, nationally known as “The Photo Detective,” to seek

out those early pictures of older Americans? For her book, she verified the subjects and painstakingly documented their lives. The photographs include several Quakers, which give us a connection to the religious group who settled Bush Hill (now Archdale). Unfortunately the book does not include an index of place names, but connections to North Carolina include Waxhaw, an unnamed Moravian community, and Dolley Madison, who was born in Greensboro. Most of Taylor’s subjects, however, lived in New England. So I set off on a quest to find one of these early photographs of someone from our region. I figured that the Friends Historical Collection at Guilford College, one of my favorite repositories of local history, would be a great starting place. I found several photographs of early settlers around the Randolph-Guilford county line, such as William B. Hockett (1799-1880, Centre Friends area) and Allen U. Tomlinson (18021879, Archdale), but they were too “young.” Finally, I came across a file about Nathan Hunt. I’d seen a large portrait of Hunt many times in the library, but I didn’t know much about him. Hunt, who was a young man during the Revolutionary War, was a Quaker minister who lived next to Springfield Meeting. Even though some of his journals

were accidentally burned, there’s a wealth of documentation and stories about his life. Not only was he an interesting man who traveled extensively and witnessed a lot of history in his 95 years, he was also my kinsman: my first cousin, seven times removed. Guilford had another painting of Hunt in storage and several sketches. I also found what looked like a very old, deteriorated photograph in the file folder. It was heavy, like glass, but it didn’t look like glass. Like an ambrotype, the faded image could be seen better when placed on black paper, but the image was positive and ambrotypes are negative. And it wasn’t thin enough or the image sharp enough to be a daguerrotype. I felt pretty silly when, weeks later, I found out the picture was actually an early 20th-century printing plate, probably used for a newspaper article. Here I was, trying to figure out which type of old photograph it was — no wonder it didn’t meet up with the historical descriptions! I suspect that the large, intriguing portrait of Hunt from the 1930s was painted from a daguerrotype, but I couldn’t find any evidence. Perhaps if I searched for a long, long time, as I do in my own family genealogy quests, I could find out. But I’m on deadline and the paper must go out. That doesn’t mean I came home empty-handed. As modest as Quakers were — they didn’t even write names on their tombstones until the 19th-century — I am amazed that we have so many likenesses of Nathan Hunt, who saw the American Revolution first hand. His life is wonderfully documented, including letters and part of a journal that still exist. A summary of Hunt’s life is on page 7.

But the hunt for that one daguerrotype, without success, shows me just how hard Maureen Taylor must have worked to pursue 70 of these photos and the stories behind them for her book. She found additional images of people who lived through our “unillustrated war,” but finding documentation about each person was an even greater challenge than finding the photos. “The vast majority of these individuals were not wealthy, could not write, and left no written record of their life,” Taylor wrote in her introduction. A few of her subjects lived to be more than 100 years old. I like the variety of the people she did find — different nationalities, races and economic groups. The colorful stories of their involvement in the Revolutionary War even include a few women. And it’s the stories that give life to the faces. “The Last Muster” is available through and Taylor’s previous book, “Uncovering Your Ancestry through Family Photographs,” is on display at the Heritage Research Center at High Point Public Library.

Honoring Our Ancestors

“Capturing the Moments of a Lifetime�

Cemeteries are important and sacred places, especially those which contain the graves of our ancestors. Though they may contain nothing more than their bones, those are the last remnants of their bodies and our only physical connection to our primordial past. We are all connected to the first human beings through our ancestors. In the Old Testament, there are many accounts of the early Israelites taking care to preserve or protect their ancestors' burial places. When Abraham buried Sarah at Hebron, part of the significance of this was that it gave him and his descendants a claim on the land; prior to the development of private property, ancestral burial grounds were a kind of sacred claim on the land. All civilized cultures take pains to honor their dead, including not desecrating other cultures' burial sites. We should honor and revere our ancestors' graves, living in the hope that we will one day see them again and be honored for the respect that we showed them after their departure. How will we feel when we see our parents, grandparents and greatgrandparents again, and have we honored them? After this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah east of Mamre (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan. The field and the cave that is in it were made over to Abraham as a possession for a burying place by the Hittites. R.S.V. Genesis 23:19-20

Nathan Hunt He lived here

before there were schools.


magine what the Piedmont looked like in 1758, the year Nathan Hunt was born. A few settlers had just started clearing land for farms and the area was thick with trees. Indians still roamed through, traveling between villages. Children had plenty of chores, but no schools — and young Nathan was hungry for an education.

BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS Nathan’s father, William Hunt, had settled on a farm in New Garden (Greensboro) in the 1750s. William traveled all over the American colonies, preaching at Quaker meetings and starting new meetings. During a trip to visit members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in England, William died of smallpox at the age of 39. Nathan was almost 14 when his father died. His mother, Sarah, faithfully took all eight children two miles each way to New Garden Meeting, the youngest two riding on a horse. Nathan, the third child, was a rambunctious boy, but he loved to learn. “There were few schools in those days and I never went to school but six months in my life,” he told his grandson years later. “A Presbyterian minister named David Caldwell, who lived three miles from our home, told me to come to his library and get any book I wanted, and when I had read it, return it and get another.” Nathan took him up on the offer. He and his siblings collected extra wood after their chores so they could read by the fire at night. They read the borrowed books and the family Bible. Nathan spoke like the books he read and, when grown, people thought he was a well-educated man. When he was 17, he felt called to speak in meetings — Quakers spoke during their worship time only to share what they had heard from the Holy Spirit. Those who spoke often, usually became ministers. But Nathan wanted to follow his fun-loving nature, not a life as a preacher. He married Martha Ruckman at age 20. Soon afterward, his dear mother died and Nathan became very ill himself. As his friends and family thought he was about to die, he saw a vision about his future ministry and travels. Nathan recovered and, this time, he answered the call to ministry. As if grief and illness weren’t enough, the Revolutionary War brought Nathan more trouble. Imagine what it would be like to have the army show up at your door and take your car away. Then they come back the next day, take your spouse’s car and clean out your refrigerator. That’s what happened to the Hunt family. They tried to hide their livestock whenever the British came near the farm, but the soldiers eventually took both of Nathan’s horses and his only cow. Despite that, Nathan went to the New Garden meeting house to help the sick and wounded from both sides. He contracted the dreaded smallpox from his patients — the disease that had killed

his father. But Nathan survived. His wife Martha, however, died soon after the war. Three years later, Nathan married Prudence Thornburg, who became a mother to his six young children and eventually had more of her own. They moved to Davidson County, where Nathan was acknowledged as a minister in 1792. In 1811, they moved to Springfield Friends Meeting and lived on land next to the meeting house. After all his family had been through, Nathan was hesitant to leave his wife and children to answer a call to travel. One day while he was out in the field, he heard God tell him that He would take care of everything. So Nathan went on the trip. When he returned home, not only was his family all right, he still had Nathan Hunt lived next to Springfield Friends Meeting. the exact amount of money he had left with. From that time on, he traveled all over the country in ministry, even to the Indian territories and Canada. He visited Great Britain and Ireland in that Nathan had seen it. The school began operations in 1837, with two of 1820-1821. Nathan preached practical sermons about how to live Nathan’s daughters as matrons.

After Prudence died in 1829, Nathan lived with his son The late Catherine P. Sheppard remembered that Nathan once said, “I would as soon hear an ass bray as to hear Thomas near Springfield Meeting and visited his other children when he could. He loved having his grandchila slave-owner preach the Gospel.” As an older man, Nathan remembered that hunger he’d dren around.

He wanted the children of the his children and extended family got together for a reunion community, including his own grandchildren, to have an with more than 100 people present.

I see his ship just at this moment sailing into the harbor at New Bedford and it is well laden.” Nancy wrote down the date and time that he had the vision.

Trinity approves cell phone tower with conditions T

he area around Hopewell Church Road and Interstate 85 in Trinity may become home to a telecommunications tower provided that the builder, American Towers Inc., abides by conditions imposed by Trinity City Council.

Those conditions require that the builder posts a $75,000 bond; does not encroach on the city’s sanitary sewer easement; and adheres to revised setbacks approved by the Board of Adjustment. The Council made its decision following a twohour public hearing during the Sept. 21 meeting. American Towers and wireless carrier T-Mobile in May requested permission to build a telecommunication tower near Hopewell Church Road. Council members were satisfied with most of the application, but expressed concerns about the possibility of a temporary road being

Council agreed that the property owner had the right to grant access to the property, but that they had the right to protect the sewer line — and that meant having no roads built on the sewer easement. Councilman Kelly Grooms made the motion

Rich Baker, public works and stormwater administrator for Trinity, said that the city got 61⠄2 inches of rain. “It was basically localized flooding,� Baker said. “When you have that quantity of rain in basically a six-hour period, it is going to cause some problems, more so in the low-lying areas. “We do have one drainage way in the Dawnwood area that needs attention,� he said. “ I have been working with the state DOT (Department of Transportation). We can’t as a city do anything about that.� The Dawnwood neighborhood is off Welborn


Road in Trinity. “They (DOT) have done some studies and I believe they have determined that they need a larger tile under the road to accomodate the creek running under it. Also, we have a sewer pump station close to Mr. Cumbie’s property and we need access to that, also.� Massive amounts of runoff blocked some roads including Trogdon Pond Road. Randolph County Schools operated on a twohour delay Sept. 30 due to road conditions. Including the inch which fell Sept. 29, the system dumped a total of 4 to 5 inches of rain on Archdale, said Archdale Stormwater

Program Manager D.J. SeĂąeres. While these amounts are uncommon, he said the event was by no means classified as a flood. The rainfall caused few issues for city maintenance crews in Archdale. “We did not have an influx of phone calls,â€? he said. “We continue to clean the swales (ditches). During the previous month, we had cleaned approximately a mile and a half of them, and straightened them. “When Archdale citizens clean their leaves, they don’t put them in the swales, but rather they put them up on the high side next to the road,â€? said SeĂąeres.

The Archdale-Trinity Chamber of Commerce will hold a candidates’ forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, at Archdale United Methodist Church. In addition to candidates for Board of Education, those running for municipal, county, state and federal offices were invited to participate. The school board election is nonpartisan. The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 8. Election Day is Nov. 2. Early voting begins Oct. 14 at the Archdale Public Library on S. Main Street, the Randolph County Office Building, 725 McDowell Road in Asheboro and at the Board of Elections Office, 158 Worth St. in Asheboro. For more information, call 819-3900 or visit

Drying, pickling demonstrations set The High Point Museum, 1859 E. Lexington Ave., will demonstrate drying and pickling techniques from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31. For more information, call 885-1859 or

SeĂąeres was pleased that stormwater runoff stayed pretty much within the swales. The high waters at Creekside Park had subsided by 10 a.m. “During the rain they built up, but within an hour of the rain stopping they were pretty clear,â€? he said. “In Archdale we have some very good floodways, which are owned by the municipality. We’ve got open spaces and we try to protect them. “Our system managed to handle this event with a minimum of impact,â€? SeĂąeres said. “Public works crews may have a little bit of cleanup, but that’s it.â€?

Several wireless industry experts explained that they needed to have ingress and egress over that portion of the city’s existing sewer easement. “We haven’t specifically gone in there and located the sewer line, which we will do,� said Tom Johnson, a lawyer representing American Towers and T-Mobile. “We had this discussion with the Planning Board, and (the road) would be far enough away from the sewer line that we would not impact it.
