Abstract:
Statistics on boating accidents were compiled for the first time in 1960. That year 79 boating accidents were reported, with 37 fatalities. In 1963, there were 68 reported accidents, and fatalities had dropped to 26. This marked reduction may reflect a growing awareness that as the waterways become more crowded, more attention must be given to water safety. Raver discusses the time of day when accidents happened; bodies of water where accidents happened, such as lakes, rivers, and ponds; size of the boat; and what the boat operator was doing.

Abstract:
Catfish fall into two categories, freshwater and saltwater. In his article Raver discusses only freshwater catfish; examines misconceptions about catfish; and explains why anglers don't like this fish. The more abundant catfish in the state are the flathead, blue, channel, white, brown bullhead, and yellow bullhead. The flathead, native to a few western North Carolina river systems, is the largest, with a maximum weight of over one hundred pounds. The group of catfish known as madtoms are the smallest, with few species exceeding six inches.
