Roger Hypes will be sharing some human interest stories of people, events, and places of our Locust community.
One of the definitions of community is the area itself; people with common interests living in a particular area. The Remember When… column should help us better understand the history, people and happenings of Locust, the place we call home.
Remember When…will help us all to take the time out of our busyness to reflect, reminisce, think back, recollect, go over in the memory and hopefully, be able to share a smile of a memory to make us better appreciate the present. Take a deep breath, lay in the grass and look up in the sky of the cloud shapes, or the stars at night.
I would ask that if you have an event, a crossroads, a person that has helped create the history of Locust, get in touch with Roger Hypes (email@example.com. “Remember When…” will not be in every week update of Locust Patch, but when stories are available and to give the story the value it deserves. Be thinking as I feel this will be a good way for all of us to appreciate what we have, and where we live.

Senator McLaurin Calls for Coal Ash Clean-Up
In light of recent reports on the coal ash spill that occurred on February 2 at a Duke Energy plant on the Dan River, the Joint Legislative Environmental Review Commission (ERC) met yesterday to hear from the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Duke Energy, environmental advocacy organizations and the public. As a member of the ERC, I had the opportunity to learn more about how the spill was initially reported, disclosed to the public, and what efforts are underway to contain and clean up the coal ash and the Dan River, a primary source of drinking water and recreation for thousands of citizens in NC and Virginia. This is a serious issue. I believe we must do a better job in the future at setting standards to assure a safe and healthy water supply for our citizens, businesses, and the agricultural community. In addition we must establish an appropriate timeline for clean-up efforts in this situation. As your state senator, I am committed to working to strengthen and improve our laws to protect this most precious natural resource - our water supply. During this meeting, our committee asked DENR officials to establish a timeline for clean-up. I will follow this issue closely and keep you informed. Attached please see an article from the Richmond Daily Journal, by Editor Kevin Spradlin, about the Environmental Review Commission meeting:
Please know that I will work hard to ensure that we protect our water supply not only for the present but also for our children and grandchildren.
