    Was just wondering what the status was on ya'lls "house" additions. Hope all is well with it, but if the weather is there what it has been here, the rain would have slowed the progress way down. Looking forward to hearing about it.

    Well the road bed been raised up and repaved. The standpipe been roughed in. The sump station has been moved and the footers have been poured. It shouldn't be much longer before the steel starts going up. Now if we can just get the heat turned on in the old part of the building. . . . . .

    Well we are running a little behind with all the rain that we have had, the concrete has been pushed back until this coming Tuesday, but they have got all of the lines run for the heated floor. The new parking lot on the right side of the building is also ready to be paved, but that will have to wait until the spring. (Asphalt plant is closed for the winter)

    Once the concrete is poured the steel will go up in no time. Was glad that App State got to keep the jug again when they beat Western a couple weeks ago. Keep em straight down there.

    Oh, by the way our substation is also almost complete. It should be up and running by the first of Feb. And before some of you stroke out, only the last two bays are going to be ours. The rest of the building belongs to the Jackson County Rescue Squad/Unit 1. Those guys have really work hard obtaining their new building and have done a great job. Hats off to the Men and Women of the Squad.

    Thanks Harve,
    This what you can achieve when you are willing to work together. Thanks go out to the Sylva Town Board, the Jackson County Board of Commissioners, The Men and Women of the Jackson County Rescue Squad, the Boys at the Sylva Fire Dept. and last but not least the Citizens of Jackson County. If it was not for these groups of fine people we would not have what we have or be getting the new substation and the addition to our current building. In these tough times, I know that we are fortunate and are truly blessed to live in a community with such fine people.

    The Squad's current building is @ 1 1/2 west of us. When they move to their new home they will be @ 3 1/2 to 4 miles south of us on the other side of town. The county is making them close down their old station. So we agreed to let them keep up to two trucks in our building when we get our addition finished. The Squad in turn allowed us to go in with them on their new building and add two more bays (one big drive through bay) for our substation. This agreement will allow both depts. to have equipment on either side of town and hopefully cut down on response times, by not having to drive through the busiest intersection in the world (well that is during rush hour traffic Every one in the county has to drive through this intersection in order to go anywhere! Can you say bottle neck from hell) So things really work out for the best for each dept.

    We only had one call today and it was an alarm call early this morning at a rest home, false alarm. So far so good, But it started to snow some at or around 1900 hrs. nothing much, and hope it stays that way. I don't think Savannah had a call all day, and Pumpkin Town Rd. in their district.

    Bull, thanks for uploading some pictures of our new building!

    Things are going rather smooth for the amount of down time (weather mainly) that we have had on the construction of our building.

    As our county has grown, the department in the county have had to as well. We decided that bigger bays would be the only way to go as we will have plenty of room to 'grow into'. And as Bull stated, response times will be drastically faster as members can respond and roll apparatus more efficiently. Over all, this move will help everybody and we are all excited and anxious!

    Thanks Harve,

    To answer your questions, 1) Yes the railroad tracks do curve to the left and head east. Its the main/only rail line through the county. I runs through the Paper Mill (Jackson Paper) the last the mill jobs in the county. At one time we had 8 factors/mills in the county. But thanks to the Feds and NAFTA they have gone the way of the Doedoe Bird.

    And Yes that is a very large patch of Kudzu behind the station.
