Abstract:
Cruze describes the search for Fish Dam Road and the discoveries made. The search was a project undertaken by students at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and their teacher Joe Liles. The road was once a major thoroughfare, running east and west on a ridge south of the Eno River, between the Neuse River in Durham County and Hillsborough in Orange County. Indians first walked it over 300 years ago, then European settlers moving West, and finally permanent, local residents. By 2003, urban development buried the road, and it was long forgotten until the class brought it back to life.

Abstract:
Mike Jackson, a commercial electrician for twenty-four years, suffered serious injuries in a scaffolding accident. His neurologist suggested he stay busy, and recommended doing something with his hands, like whittling. Jackson had painted some, but had never done any carving. It was slow going at first, but the more he worked, the more the carvings improved. Jackson has very few of his pieces at home because almost everything he carves sells. He has also added molding clay faces, which he paints expressively, to his list of accomplishments.
