One of the hardest parts of my job is finding something that I feel (hope, pray) others might find interesting to read about. Not easy. But here we go... digging into how some of the towns along the Outer Banks got their names and some other facts.

Have you heard about Portsmouth Island? This is a place that is hard to get to...does not offer basic comforts, has huge mosquitoes, brutal weather and conditions and even with all this...is well loved and visited by many people.

A few weeks ago we heard of a terrible accident that happened in Corolla. A couple from Pennsylvania was walking along NC Highway 12 when they were hit and killed by a driver in an SUV. Apparently the driver fell asleep at the wheel. This hit our community very hard.
