Abstract:
In the heart of eastern North Carolina's barbecue belt, halfway between Bethel and Tarboro, is Blackbeard's BBQ & C-Food. Owners Charissa and Lewis Summerlin met in Florida where they were both working in the food industry. Lewis, who is from Old Sparta, North Carolina, had gone to Florida in 1972, and Charissa, who is from Maryland and trained at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in New York City, was managing a restaurant. In 2000, they both wanted a quieter area and returned to North Carolina and opened Blackbeard's. With the help of daughter Abby they serve wood-smoked barbecue and other dishes.

Abstract:
Many couples wrote letters to each other covering a myriad of subjects during the Civil War. One of them was Francis Marion Poteet, a farmer, miller, and carpenter from Dysartsville in McDowell County, who was conscripted in 1863 at age 36. Left on the home front was his wife, Martha Hendley Poteet, who was pregnant, and ten children. Their letters describe the conflicts they faced--Francis staying alive and Martha keeping the family together and feeding them while fighting the landlord over eviction from their property. They survived and lived together for fifty-four years. Both died on the same day--April 2, 1902.

Locals in Swansboro know where to go to get their sweet treats--Yana's Ye Olde Drug Store Restaurant, a place well-known for its fritters. The recipe is secret, and owner Evelyn Moore got it from her mother who got it from her Native American ancestors. Moore opened her restaurant in 1983, and the walls show her affection for the '50s with memorabilia including movie posters, photographs and a statue of Elvis.
