North Carolina residents consider fleeing as rivers rise

in

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The river seethed a quarter-mile away, bulging from its banks, so the patrol cars circled the neighborhood three times.
"Get out now," a voice boomed from a bullhorn. "This is an emergency."
Waheeda Reese and her 14-year-old daughter, Anissa, were inside watching news reports about drowned towns all over the state and rain that hadn't yet stopped.

phillips_jeanne.jpg

DEAR ABBY: My husband has less and less interest in me. It started with the last presidential election. Since then, I have cut way back on politics because he doesn’t want to hear any of it. Being an activist on several fronts, including politics and other areas, this is a big, emotional part of who I am. I get so upset by his silences that I stop talking to him completely.
I’m spent from feeling so lonely, so unworthy of love, helpless, hopeless and powerless. I can’t take this much longer. He says he wants to be with me, and he has just started private therapy. I, too, am in therapy.

Ruston resident Agnes “Chi Chi” Grafton turned 106 years old today.
A graduate of Louisiana Tech, Grafton earned a business degree in 1932. During her tenure at the University, Grafton was heavily involved on campus. She was named Campus Sweetheart and became a member of Lambda Theta, a local sorority that successfully petitioned Kappa Delta Sorority for membership. The petition was accepted by Kappa Delta, making it the first national sorority at Tech, and Graftonwas among the first group of initiates. Today she is the oldest living member of the chapter that is now 87 years old.
