Abstract:
The Moravians, among the first to settle in the western Piedmont, recorded their observations concerning the proliferation of game animals. Buffalo, black bear, wolves, and even panthers were observed, with elk and deer common throughout the area. Not accomplished hunters, the Moravians relied on the professional or \"long hunters\" of the frontier, while sharpening their own skills. Moravian records also reflect a consistent lack of game for hunting during the years 1752 through 1756.

Abstract:
Connecticut executives moved several of their manufacturing operations to the south in the last five years. Controversy surrounds the movement of industry to the south, particularly in light of the threat of economic stagnation due to political and education problems brought about by integration. Connecticut companies claim new plant and freight costs are cheaper in the South, taxes and labor costs are lower, and communities are friendlier, resulting in an increased profit for the relocated firms. (Article originally published in the Hartford Currant).
