Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar pregnant again with #20

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

SPRINGDALE, AR (CNN.COM / PEOPLE.COM) — They’re going for an even 20!

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, stars of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” are expecting their 20th child this spring.

“We are so excited,” says Michelle, 45, who is now about three-and-a-half months into her pregnancy and due in April. “I feel good. I am past the sickness stage now.”

The Tontitown, Ark., couple, who are parents to children Joshua, 23 (who is married to Anna, 23 and has two children, Mackynzie, 2 and Michael, 4 months), twins Jana and John-David, 21; Jill, 20; Jessa, 19; Jinger, 17; Joseph, 16; Josiah, 15; Joy-Anna, 14; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 12; Jason, 11; James, 10; Justin, 8; Jackson, 7; Johanna, 6; Jennifer, 4; and Jordyn, 3, weathered the medical emergency of their youngest daughter, Josie’s birth on Dec. 10, 2009.

She was born following Michelle’s preeclampsia diagnosis at a mere 25 weeks, weighing only 1lb., 6 oz.

Josie’s medical drama — and Michelle’s own fight for survival — was documented throughout their TV series. Josie will turn 2 in December and is developing normally, without any longterm effects from her premature birth.

“It is a miracle. Josie is the most energetic, busy little almost-2-year-old,” says Michelle. “She is short, and yet she can keep up with the big girls and she thinks she is just as big as they are. We are amazed at what she can do.”

NC DOT testing new signs on Greensboro interstates

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — The state Transportation Department is testing eight electronic signs on interstates in Greensboro to make sure they work correctly.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports that DOT is testing the signs for 30 days on interstate 40, 85 and 40/85.

Starting Monday, the new signs repeated the same wording: “Call 511 for general travel info.” The number refers to state DOT’s mobile-phone network for travel updates.

The $875,000 project replaces seven existing electronic boards with larger, more technologically advanced signs near seven major interchanges and an eighth message board in a new location – on I-40 West.

The major benefit of the new message boards is a larger surface so DOT officials can convey longer messages that are easier for motorists to understand.
