This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
It's hard to believe what happened when this very lucky Atlanta Hawks fan took a half-court shot at halftime during the Hawks-Jazz game January 11, 2013. It's even harder to believe what happens AFTER the shot. Watch it to see for yourself. The real question is: did he deserve the cash or not?
