Abstract:
In the country's fast-paced society, Raeford's Barbershop is unique. It is a shop where people can come in and stay as long as they want and where what's on a person's mind is more important than what's on one's head. It is a place where the community comes together without regard for one another's bank account, skin color, hair texture, religion, or age. Molinary describes the shop and its owner James Raeford.

Abstract:
Lumberton, the county seat of Roberson County, is Our State magazine's Tar Heel town of the month. Early commerce in the town revolved around shipments of lumber. This was followed by turpentine and tobacco industries, and by the early 1900s the textile industry had made its way to Lumberton. Those industries have now declined, but because of its location on I-95, new industries have replaced them. Visitor attractions include the Luther Britt Park, the Black Water Grill, and Exploration Station.
