ry reserving access to Narragansett Bay for his homestead. As Mr. Medberry's parcel and all the surrounding parcels were taken by condemnation for the park, Is that easement automatically extinguished?
I had made a reference to the easement in my surveyor's report, but because the need for the easement no longer existed(a public park allows access to all) I did not show the easement on the plan, as I thought it would only be confusing.
Should I have shown the easement?
west disasters, this way men may go silently and smoothly through the world, and comfortably out of it.
I follow in these footsteps; learning by every day's experience to know it more sensibly, notwithstanding the desire for self improvement, and sometimes neglecting the counsel of those who have come before me.
A land surveyor I am, and one of the class of professionals who will continue to observe and interact with each other, as contemporaries, for the betterment of all who find themselves equally fit, insomuch as they can see through the same lens as I.
This to me is being in top form; in accord and harmonious with my contemporaries in the land surveying profession, and with little to do in financial gain or social status.
For all of this I am thankful: That the very nature of things; the milestones, the shortcomings, and the uncertainties of the profession are being addressed in proper discourse, and without fear of retribution, may lead to a better future for all holding the lens.

he cocktail waitress job in Hawaii, well she didn't take my advise. I wonder if she can still get a high paying cocktail waitress job anymore. Another female apprentice, got married and pregnant, and couldn't work in the field. The most successful female surveyors I have met, studied and took their LS, so they could start a women owned business and get CALTRANS and other government work. In 33 years of surveying I have met 0 females would wanted to work so hard in such rough conditions and to put up with Party Chief who had no patience for compainers and slack offs. Of course some PC's bore the extra burden to work with the fairer sex. These were often given easier tasks due to the "handicap". Surveying is still a very physical job, While women can mentally compete with men, most dont want to do what it takes to physically compete, and those that do, easily find better paying jobs elsewhere, without the sweat, the dust, the insects, snakes and grit that true surveyors know and love! Perhaps a women become more outdoresy our industry will attract more, but alas it may be too late, because the economy being what it is, and robotics being what it is, the skill pool will not be getting much bigger in the future, and those spots will be reserved for the most competitive, PHYSICALLY and mentally. 'nuff said…
A growing population in these original colonies, being free from English rule, would require new lands to occupy for the seemingly endless number of new immigrants.
Jefferson originally offered a systematic means to prepare new areas for Statehood in his Ordinance of 1784. In the following year he began designing a system for surveying the newly explored lands to the West.
n the Colonial States it had become common that ownership disputes would occur because property lines were defined by landmarks such as trees, fences, or waters (all of which are ephemeral in location and relative position).
Jefferson’s proposal resulting in The Ordinance of 1785 advocated the creation of a rectangular system of boundary establishment. The basic unit of ownership was to be the Township, a six-mile square or 36 square miles. Each township would be divided into 36 rectangular sections of land, each a one-mile square or 640 acres (in principle).
Section 16 in each township would be reserved for the benefit of public education. All other sections were to be marketable to the general public.
The Ordinance provided that whole sections of land (640 Acres each) be offered to the public at the minimum bidding price of one dollar per acre.
In preparing this system for gaining public interest in purchasing Western lands, and perhaps for funding some of the expeditions that had already been conducted and those yet to be proposed, the Continental Congress introduced this system of rectangular divisions of land that remain the basis for land ownership among most of the United States of America.…
