Abstract:
Cary is North Carolina's seventh largest city with 107,000 residents and 6,000 businesses. In 2004, MONEY MAGAZINE designated the town as the best place to live on the East Coast. Above average home prices, residents with above average incomes (median $75,000), and a high percentage of residents with college degrees (67 percent) were demographics the magazine selected in making their selection. Maurer discusses this city that chose smart growth and culture over urban sprawl and still doubled its population every decade since 1960.

Abstract:
North Carolina has twenty-seven electric cooperatives that supply power to 2.5 million residential and small business customers. These electric suppliers differ from the big companies, like Duke Energy, in that they are owned by their members, who elect a board of directors to set rates and policies. Every cooperative member is guaranteed a voice in decisions. Each cooperative is in the community it serves and is therefore more in touch with what the local needs are. Rafferty discusses some cooperatives, including the Roanoke, Randolph, Edgecombe-Martin County, Albemarle, and Tri-County Electric Cooperatives.

Abstract:
Cold Mountain was made famous by Charles Frazier's Civil War novel of the same name. It is located in Haywood County. The mountain's elevation is 6,030 feet; reaching its summit requires a strenuous 10-mile hike. For non-climbers, the Milepost 411 overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway provides a good view.
