PKS POST OFFICE Ed Crumley, accompanied by Wade Pelletier, postmaster at Morehead
City, appeared before the town commission on October 7 in connection
OUTLOOK BLEAK vdth the efforts being made to change the mailing address for residents
of Pine Knoll Shores from the Morehead City rural route address.
They reported that the outlook for such a change was less than encouraging.
Contacts they made with postal officials in V/ashington and Raleigh indicated that
such a change was not likely. However, Mr. Pelletier suggested that if the town elects
to pursue this matter further, the first step would be to apply for a contract postal
station to be located in Pine Knoll Shores, however, PKS mail still would be routed
through Morehead City post office. The contract station, he said, would be set up on
a trial basis, but coiJ-d not remain open if revenues did not support the operation. It
was pointed out that Emerald Isle had established such a postal station but it was closed
lack of sufficient business.
After the presentation of the report it was the concensus that to follow through
on this proposition i^iould not achieve the original purpose, which was obtaining a Pine
Knoll Shores postal identity, and further effoii:,s quite likely would be in vain. Mr.
Pelletier, however, promised to keep the matter open and reminded the audience "your
request is unique."
GOVER^JOR HUI^rr VISITS At a special meeting, which he had called for the purpose,
Governor Jum Hunt visited Pine Krioll Shores on Saturday, Sept. 13,
PINE KNOLL SHORES to enlist the help and support of residents here to assist his
administration in helping to push forward the state of North
Carolina in its program of growth. He reminded the audience that a great number of
people living in Pine Knoll Shores had considerable executive experience that could be
used by the State mth respect to business, education, governmental functions and other
facets of state activities.
He was accompanied by several members of his cabinet including Tom Bradshaw,
Secretary of the Department of Tr*ansportationc who further enlarged on the governor’s
program. The Governor was introduced by Leo Jenkins, his special advisor on these
matters, and the meeting finally v;as opened to questions and answers from the audience.
Each participant also was requested to fill in a questionnaire and mail it back to the
Governor’s office at Raleigh. About 80 persons were in attendance.
