Local survivalist to

compete on FOX

FAYETTEVILLE — A local survivalist will returned to television this week to take on challenges in the jungle, but he’s got to do it with a novice naturalist — “Baywatch” star Angelica Bridges.

“She’s not an outdoors person,” said Hakim Isler, from his martial arts gym, Elevo Dynamics, in downtown Fayetteville on Tuesday.

Isler will be competing on the new FOX show, “Kicking & Screaming,” that pairs 10 expert survivalists with high-maintenance partners to face grueling challenges. The pairs will be dropped into Fiji, where they have to overcome dangerous animals, rivers, hunger and extreme weather.

To win the competition and a $500,000 prize, the survivalist experts have to get their partners to the finish line.


Boil-water advisory

is lifted this week

CHADBOURN — Residents here can drink their water again without having to first boil it.

Interim Town Manager Pat Garrell distributed a notice at 10:35 Tuesday morning stating that, as expected, the boil water advisory had been lifted.

The boil water advisory was mandatory to comply with state regulations after Chadbourn suffered a disruption in water service Thursday night. Although no water quality problems had been expected, the town had to keep the advisory in place until lab results on water samples were received Tuesday morning.
