THOMASVILLE, N.C. — North Carolina has fined the city of Thomasville more than $35,000 for a sewage spill recorded as the largest in the state in at least a decade.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that City Manager Kelly Craver said his staff is researching how and when the spill of almost 16 million gallons of untreated wastewater occurred.

The city’s public service staff initially reported the spill started Aug. 3, lasted one day and dumped almost 386,000 gallons into a tributary that feeds into High Rock Lake.

On Sept. 10, they changed the report to show the spill started in mid-July and dumped almost 16 million gallons. After reviewing plant records and interviewing employees, local officials think the figure might be closer to the smaller amount.

CHARLOTTE — The CEO of a North Carolina company that sells note pads with a touch of style says he’s learned important lessons from surviving the emergency splashdown on the Hudson River.

Carolina Pad president and CEO Clay Presley speaks Tuesday to graduate business students at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Presley bought Carolina Pad in 2000 and shifted it from a traditional paper manufacturer into selling notebooks with a touch of design and fashion. He has a new book about how business
executives can excel.

Presley was also a passenger on US Airways Flight 1549, which made an emergency landing in the Hudson River in New York City after it struck a flock of Canada geese and both engines were knocked out.
