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.
Great Falls, Mont., station KRTV received nationwide media focus after it broadcast an emergency alert warning of a zombie attack. Yes, a zombie attack. The “Steve Wilkes” show was airing when the familiar buzzing sounds of the Emergency Alert System alerted viewers of an important announcement: “Authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living. … Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.” The Montana Television Network said hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System of KRTV and its CW-affiliated station. The broadcast went out in several Montana counties, and fortunately no zombies were spotted afterwards.
