Abstract:
During the closing days of 1931-1932, a period of time spanning less than 12 months, sea grass disappeared from the North Carolina sounds. Struck by a mysterious parasite, eelgrass disappeared in bodies of water throughout North America, Europe and the Mediterranean. Despite re-plantings of eelgrass to save ecosystems, the sea grass continued to die off until 1937 when it began growing again in the Chesapeake Bay area.

Abstract:
In visiting a new area, people often ask about the location of good restaurant fare and entertainment, eliciting the response from most locals that there is little good to eat or fun attractions. The fiction that high-priced eating places will draw immense local crowds persists, and continues to trap enthusiastic people into making foolish investments. Drawing on the local restaurant fare and available leisure activities, a list of fine motels, outdoor dramas, and travel improvements aid the local and tourist alike in finding acceptable alternatives in North Carolina.

Abstract:
In an 1865 letter to J. Evans Brown in Australia, Governor Zebulon Vance writes he is depressed by defeat, without funds, and thinking of emigrating to Australia. Quickly recovering his optimism and fortune, Vance was re-elected as Governor in 1876 and later completed four terms in the U.S. Senate. Vance's letter to Brown, explained in further detail in the article, describes conditions in North Carolina at the end of the war and the start of Reconstruction.

Abstract:
The State of North Carolina now operates a ferry service between Atlantic and Ocracoke, reminding residents of a time almost sixty years ago when the eastern part of the state was better served by water transportation. Although the boat line has declined with the regular trade, several Washington men assure residents better boat service will resume in the near future. The new ferry reminds residents of bygone days when first-class steamboats of the Dominion line made the voyage to Ocracoke.
