Where in Carolina Country is This?
The December Where is This photo taken by Renee Gannon features a family of five who happens to be metal. The tall family overlooks highway 70 between Burlington and Haw River, just before the Three Governors Bridge. Herman Johnson, owner of Burlington Mechanical Contractors, first erected the 17-foot-2-inch man in 2009, then repainted him and added a family in 2014. One fun feature is the family, like many across North Carolina, has split allegiances between UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke and NC State: one twin wears red, the other, baby blue; the babe favors Duke, while mom wears red and dad sports a blue plaid shirt. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Michael Becker of Mebane, a Brunswick EMC member.
