Teaching through, after 9/11

September 9, 2011

Ten years ago on Sept. 11, Jan Herman and her seventh-grade class were studying a weather unit at Arndt Middle School. Using information from a weather broadcast on TV, the students filled in weather charts on pieces of paper.

Just before 9 a.m., The Weather Channel’s coverage was interrupted by a news broadcast. It was footage of the World Trade Center burning – smoke pluming into clouds high above.

Herman didn’t turn the TV off or change the channel.

A walk through time

September 9, 2011

Lanny Hartsoe strolled through the old Warlong Building in Conover Station on Wednesday with a smile on his face. He looked up, then down and closely observed the building he worked in for 24 years.  

“I reckon your office is gone, Sam,” he said to one of his former colleagues.

Hartsoe was one of about 10 former Broyhill Furniture employees to tour the newly renovated Warlong Building.

Claremont, Optimist talking again

September 9, 2011

Sometimes it takes extreme measures to create change.
After a “harsh” letter and a heated public discussion, Claremont’s city council and Optimist Club are once again communicating.

It has been four years since Claremont officials have heard from the club they have invested more than $200,000 in, but a clear-cut letter from city leaders finally drew some public discourse that has “re-opened” the lines of communication between the two groups.

The Claremont Optimist Club leases land at Frances Sigmon Park on Keisler Dairy Road for recreational leagues and activities for children.
