"down-home", experience than usual
for some UNC students.
Instead of choosing between taco
salads and spaghetti, they were
offered traditional North Carolina
foods such as barbecued pork, sweet
potatoes and okra.
"Goodness grows in North Carol
ina" was the theme of a food fair
sponsored by the N.C. Department,

The program should help the
farmers, she explained, and will

to. It's exciting and educates people,
Turner said the event would edu

about their home state as well as
exposing out-of-state students to

ville also said the food tasted better
than usual. "I enjoyed it a lot more,"

North Carolina is not more out
front in supporting the banking
industry because the future of this
very regulated industry is highly

today is that "the banking industry
is taking on more risks and has
a decline in credit quality," he said.

believes many changes will occur
in banking during the next few
years that will open up many
