Abstract:
Three Moore County neighborhoods have made significant progress toward improving public services sin 2005. After the Pinehurst golf course hosted the US Open, the University of North Carolina Center for Civil Rights has helped bring basic municipalities to surrounding communities. Water and sewer services, police protection, and traffic lights have been brought to the predominately small African-American communities of Jackson Hamlet, Lost City, Midway, Waynor Road, and Monroe Town near the golf course. Neighborhood leaders are now offering workshops to teach other communities how to secure local funding to help their communities.

Abstract:
The history of how the Triangle area became open to art films over the last 25 years is detailed by local critic Godfrey Cheshire. Part of what helped the film scene thrive was writing about the films and the inclusion of local film festivals. The area will likely not become a popular place for filmmaking and the scene is changing with the internet and an aging movie-going population.
