Detecting Saxapahaw: DIV XXVII: Brandy Rock Farm Part 2

Detecting Saxapahaw: DIV XXVII: Brandy Rock Farm Part 2 | Saxapahaw | Scoop.it

"The real find of the hut, though, is what detectorists refer to as a “pocket spill”.  It’s a term usually used by coin-shooter looking for fairly modern coins, and refers to a small collection of coins found together.  It’s not every day you run across a pocket spill from a Civil War soldier, though!  This one consisted of three coins.  The first is an Indian Head penny.  The date is unreadable, but it certainly predates 1864 when the thickness of the penny was reduced to what we see today.  The other two coins are a bit different, and certainly rank among my favorite finds of my detecting career."

Saxapahaw group voices opposition to training center - Top News - The Times News | Saxapahaw | Scoop.it

"There are some people in Saxapahaw not excited about Sheriff Terry Johnson’s idea of building a training center for emergency services near the landfill."

Steven Durland's insight:

"John Jordan, who owns a lot of property in Saxapahaw, said he would like to see the county build sports facilities, like soccer fields, for young people on some of those 87 acres. He has even offered to contribute money to help build them. But he does not see why soccer fields and the training center could not share that land.

“I don’t see a conflict,” Jordan said"

 

REALLY? You see no conflict with a youth recreation facility sharing land with a weapons training center? REALLY?
