One area church had record breaking crowds turn out for a free Thanksgiving meal yesterday in Martinsville.

[SUPER=03-Martinsville;]


Hundreds waited in line for a turkey dinner and hundreds more had their meals delivered. The larger than normal crowd was attributed to the struggling Henry County economy. 5-different plants have shutdown in the last 3-years, putting hundreds in the region out of work and in need. It's why the event had more than 2-hundred volunteers.

Traffic is back to normal on Business 220 in Martinsville this morning.
Yesterday afternoon, a mechanical problem with a generator at the Martinsville Hydroelectric Dam caused a turbine to spin out of control. Route 220 business was closed for more than 5 hours, for fear the spinning turbine might shatter, and throw shrapnel into passing traffic. A sluice gate was eventually closed, reducing the flow of water and the spin rate of the turbine. No one was injured, and no customers lost power.

Holiday travelers had to take detours on Business 220 through Martinsville yesterday afternoon. Around 1 o'clock a mechanical problem with one of two generators at the Martinsville Hydroelectric Dam caused a turbine to spin out of control. Route 220 business was closed for more than 5 hours for fear the spinning turbine might shatter and throw shrapnel into passing traffic. A sluice gate was eventually closed, reducing the flow of water and the spin rate of the turbine. No one was injured, and no customers lost power.

A chinese wedding is quite different from an American one.
There are no vows--rather the parents, matchmakers, and witnesses all give speeches and sign the marriage certificate.
It is also customary for the guests to shout out phrases of good luck during a banquet that often includes as many as 18 courses.
