Longpoint Landing Cleanup and Offshore Drilling Developments

On Sunday, November 15th a handful of us wandered out to Longpoint Landing and did a cleanup. All-in-all we gathered about 5 big trash bags full of trash (mostly beer bottles and cans) and a busted television. It’s always interesting to see what turns up on these cleanups. One of my favorite “treasures” is a completely flattened fork, which I framed and is now decorating my kitchen. Anyway, it turned out to be a lovely day.

In other news…

On Monday, November 16th the Carteret County commissioners voted in favor of offshore drilling in a 4 to 2 vote. This was not taken lightly by local residents. However it was stated by Commissioner Mansfield, ““At this time I have to stand in support of the governor and his views on offshore drilling.” You can read more on this HERE.
