Tenaha, population 1,170, is a sleepy stretch of East Texas that smells of its three main industries: cattle, timber, and poultry. The only sit-down restaurant for miles, the Whistle Stop, has a Texas Narcotics Officers Association sticker on the front door, along with a sign that reads We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to Anyone. Inside, when a newcomer sits down to order lunch on a workday afternoon, locals crane their necks to get a better look. Next door is the towns main tourist attraction, the Tenaha Antique Mall, where a cashier spends her days staring at a rusty Barry Goldwater for President sign and stacks of vintage Coca-Cola bottles; she sells her own tea cakes on the side, in small ziplock bags.

The town’s racial geography feels like a throwback, too. White residents live in homes that range from sturdy brick facades to ramshackle trailers; black residents tend to live in «the Quarters», where the roads are a lumpy mess of silt and rocks, and some houses have limited access to the sewage system. For years, young people of both races have been emptying out of Tenaha.

«There’s not much for our children to do but leave», Marie Crawford, a genteel former city councilwoman, told me recently, as we drove around town in her burgundy van. She has a silver-straight bob and

NC Stands for Noisy Clunk?

The sound you hear is normal, and to explain why requires some kneebone-connected-to-the-shinbone background. Your NC’s crankshaft turns the clutch, which is attached to the transmission’s main shaft, which turns the transmission’s countershaft on which the countershaft sprocket is mounted, which connects to the rear wheel via the drive chain. When the transmission is in neutral, the main shaft and countershaft aren’t directly connected, and only the main shaft is rotating. When you pull in the clutch, the fiber plates that ft into slots in the crankshaft-driven clutch basket are pushed away from the steel plates slotted into the mainshaft-mounted

KITCHEN & BATH UPDATES

Before you spruce up, make sure your plumbing’s running. Here are easy maintenance tips for leaks and drips.

WHAT TO DO

REPAIR YOUR FAUCET. First, make sure that the leak is from the faucet and not from the main plumbing line. New faucets usually come with DIY instructions, but if you’re iffy about your handyman skills, hire a plumber to do the job.

DO IT

1. Turn off the main valve of your sink. Carefully remove the old faucet. Clean the sink, especially the area around the faucet.

2. Put plumber’s putty on the base of your new faucet, unless

A year ago, when AECOM won the bid to master plan the main site of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the proposed development plot was just a disused Formula 1 race circuit. Today, with three years to go until the finishing deadline its, well… its still covered with an old F1 track.

Time was always going to be an issue in this project as they do things with a different sense of urgency in Brazil. AECOM, being already involved in a number of urban regeneration projects in Brazil, was aware of this and used it to its advantage when bidding for the master planning. The practice, which has been closely involved in London 2012 (see page 48), decided to design all the venues as well.

‘It didn’t work master planning with just boxes for the stadia,’ says AECOM principal Graham Goymour. ‘We needed resolution of the spaces around the venues and time
