In 2009 he was named the best small-water-system manager in the state by the NC Rural Water Association. Town Manager Brian Kramer said, “I have worked closely with Sonny since he came aboard, and will say unequivocally what every person in Pine Knoll Shores who knows him is already aware of: there simply is not another person who works as hard or cares as much about the citizens of this town as Sonny. But that’s not why we named him as the Director. He’s smart, he’s service oriented, and he’s a solid manager of people, time and resources. He will do an outstanding job in his new position.” Congratulations, Sonny, and thank you for all you do for the citizens of Pine Knoll Shores. iSTO Pine Knoll Shores Radio vStation broadcasts 24 hours a day ' with weather and emergency info. EMERGENCY - GALL 911 ECC 7261911 * PUBLIC SAFETY 247-2474 Public Services Director Sonny Cunningham—P/ioto by Brian Kramer Exhibit Announcement By Walt Zaenker A similar announcement also appears atpineknollhistory.blogspot.com. The Carteret County Museum of History, formerly The History Place The Pine Knoll Shores History Committee, in conjunction with the Carteret County Historical Society, presents “Beach Town in a Forest—The Story of Pine Knoll Shores.” This exhibit will be on display from March 15,2016, through March 15, 2017, in the newly remodeled Rodney Kemp Gallery at the Carteret County Museum of History, formerly known as The History Place. The story starts with native people, the age of exploration and the first to homestead on the land—Meginnises, Royalls and Abonita adventurers. Those stopping in this area of the exhibit need to be careful not to scare the alligator, typical of wildlife once common on the island. Alice Green Hoffman came to Bogue Banks in 1915 and left a light environmental footprint. Exhibit visitors may ignore her “No Trespassing” sign and approach her in the outfit she frequently wore here, but dare not go too close since she is armed with one of her pistols. Admiring a steamer trunk filled with clothes she might have worn, they can imagine the high life she enjoyed in New York City and Paris. Before moving on, some may think they hear Polly, her parrot, cuss in both French and English. (Continued on page 4) Shore standard Pre-Sort Permit #35 h, NC 28512
