Abstract:
Captain Horatio Sinbad is North Carolina's only officially commissioned privateer. He dreamed of being a pirate when he saw the movie Treasure Island at the age of eight and later ran away from home at sixteen to join the crews of sailing ships in the Caribbean. He legally changed his name to Sinbad twenty-seven years ago. He built the ship he sails, the MEKA II, by hand, and it is his only home. The first Meka went down in a hurricane 100 miles off Norfolk, and Sinbad spent nine hours in the water before rescue. Sinbad is the reason the Americas' Sail 2006 is coming to the waters off Carteret County in the summer of 2006. He won a race in the Americas' Sail 2002 in the waters off Jamaica and won the right to choose the port for the next sailing competition. He chose Beaufort for his home port.

Abstract:
The late Thad and Alice Eure were well known for their restaurants, the Angus Barn and the 42nd Street Oyster Bar, but when their son was diagnosed with severe bipolar disorder, their lives took a turn. After finding few good answers to their seven-year search for help, the Eures established in 1984 the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness, a non-profit philanthropic organization dedicated to funding breakthroughs in the treatment of mental illness. The foundation has given nearly $2 million for research and 'seed money' has leveraged an additional $89 million in federal grants at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Dorothea Dix Hospitals.

Abstract:
The project began as a renovation by John Kane and the Kane Realty Corporation of Raleigh's fading North Hills Shopping Center. It has evolved into a massive $1 billion development that covers one hundred acres of the city's prime real estate. Gone is the old shopping center that once stood on Six Forks Road. In its place stands a new shopping, office, residential and entertainment complex that combines tasteful architecture with the feel of a sophisticated village.

Abstract:
John Davis is the executive director of the Raleigh-based North Carolina Forum for Research and Economic Education (NCFREE). The organization was created in 1983 by a large cross-section of business leaders and lawyers. Davis was hired the same year. The founders wanted to understand the political process in the state, who the people were that ran for, or held office, how they voted, who backed them, and what underlying trends might change the state's political dynamics. The results of Davis's work are published in THE ALAMANAC OF NORTH CAROLINA POLITICS, which is often called the bible of North Carolina politics. Davis rates highly for his political insight, information gathering, and ability to forecast trends.
