Abstract:
Development is moving inland from the coasts, and condominium complexes and housing communities are springing up along inland waterways. There is concern that this land-change will affect aquatic organisms downstream and in the estuaries. To address this concern, the North Carolina Blue Crab Research program is funding a research project at East Carolina University. The researchers are Greg Meyer, an ECU doctoral student; Joe Luzckovich, a fishery biologist; Mark Brinson, a wetland ecologist; and Terry West, an invertebrate zoologist. Seiling discusses the team's research and some early results.

The historic Jack Tar Motel in Durham will be renovated to a boutique motel after years of decay have affected the property. What will happen to residents who have lived illegally at the Durham landmark for the last ten years is uncertain. Ronnie Sturdivant, the property’s former owner, ran a flophouse out of the hotel’s rooms, but neglected fixing many of the problems.
