Abstract:
In the last year, Tucker Littleton has documented 155 windmills on North Carolina's Outer Coastal Plain. The first windmill in North Carolina was built in 1723 at Avon. So far, the majority of the surviving windmills have been discovered in Carteret County. Lyanne Westcott of Manteo has begun the restoration of a 19th-century windmill at Nags Head. Scheduled to finish in September, the windmill will be open to the public.

Abstract:
Originating in Great Britain in 1823, rugby first appeared in North Carolina in 1965 at N.C. State University. Today, all ACC schools have rugby teams. Although similar to football, rugby players wear no padding and no helmets. Often considered barbaric, the white collar of the uniform jersey is a reminder that this is the sport of gentlemen and ladies, and both teams cheer each other off the field at the end of games. Additionally, the home team hosts an after-game party for the visitors.

Abstract:
NBC's Today Show recently visited North Carolina to do a piece on a little boy. The three-year-old son of writer Robert Williams, Robert III has become the youngest published photographer in the country. No matter the camera, the little boy is able to take stunning photographs, often better ones than professionals. The five and a half hours of film recorded about the boy will be condensed to a four or five-minute segment and will air later this year.
