Abstract:
Wilmington's Oakwood Cemetery is one of the most historic cemeteries in the South. The first person buried there was on February 5, 1855--Annie, daughter of the cemetery's president. Since then over 20,000 have been buried there, some extraordinary, others ordinary people. The cemetery still has about a hundred funerals a year. Eric Kozen, who has twenty-seven years in the horticulture business and who has been a site manager at Arlington National Cemetery, is the cemetery superintendent. In his article Rowe relates how Oakdale became the first cemetery in the state to be part of a Rural Garden Cemetery Movement and what relatives of the deceased did on Sundays.

Abstract:
The Uwharrie Mountains National Forests is one of the country's smallest. Yet among the trees, shadows, and darkness lurks another creature similar to Bigfoot. Over the past forty years there have been reported sightings and footprints four inches across the heel and eight across the toes. Michael Greene, who oversaw 250 investigators as Chief of Welfare and Food Stamp Fraud Investigation in New Jersey and who also is a \"court qualified expert witness\" on fraud, captured the best piece of evidence seen in 40 years. In 2009 he set up a thermal imager and digital video recorder in the woods and left. When he returned, the device had recorded a lumbering figure with long arms. Bigfoot? Mystery as yet unsolved.
