Dr. William Blanding’s ‘treasure’ map

Dr. Blanding wrote "This gold mine is on the land of Mrs. Kirkley on the east side of Big Lynches Creek-two miles from the Brewer Gold Mine. In 1830 some gold was found in a branch which in a short distance passes into Big L.[ynches] C.[reek]. Soon after this discovery it was found on a sand hill nearby. Some detached pieces, from 1 to 5 pie[ces] were found-others attached to the fragments of quartz.

Noted and passed - Aug. 5, 2013

• Misconduct among airport screeners employed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has risen dramatically during the last three years, including many incidents of theft, groping and other abnormal behavior.

Going through security is trying enough under perfect circumstances and can become nearly unbearable when screeners are unprofessional. The TSA needs to deal with this situation and get rid of the bad apples as soon as possible.

Dave Camp, a Republican who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, are trying to overcome partisan rancor to begin structuring a long-needed new platform for the U.S. tax code. As it is, the code is impossibly complex and cumbersome.
