Thanks for passing on the link (to your blog). Just two quick

One, the city didn’t issue a press release. It’s been a dry summer, so I checked with them. It’s similar to the story from last year because it’s a similar situation. When the weather is dry, weather stories are not uncommon. Sometimes I check with the city, sometimes with farmers, sometimes with nurseries.

Two, the story did report that water demand has fallen.

Thanks again,

Dear Reporter Harden:

Why won't the News & Record inform its readers about Greensboro’s phony water forecast? (See CHART)

That forecast was a fabrication! It helped citizens and government officials become convinced that the Randleman Dam was necessary!

A government fabrication created to sway public opinion is BIG NEWS that's begging to be told!

I fed this information to the N&R in 1997, 1999 and 2008 and your newspaper continues to spike the Greensboro water fraud

The N&R is going to look pretty foolish when the information in my CHART reaches the public. Your newspaper will look like an
accomplice in the scam for the Randleman Dam.
