thanks to 560,000 appropriated to the

Shallotte Police Sgt. Rodney Gause

Pigott at his place of work that afternoon.
The clerk said she told Officer
Evans that the suspect had "orange

arms where she "clawed him, trying

"I told her the same name the

The victim later picked out Pigott's

required deposits, according to the
testimony in court last week.
Gilbert's attorney, Grover Gore of
Southport, argued that the money
collected from the cemetery sales
was used to develop the mausoleum,
which he said is 75 percent complete
and paid for.
The Gilberts incorporated the
Southport cemetery in 1981 under the
title Cape Fear Cemetery Corporation.
Gilbert is listed as co-owner and
general manager of the corporation,
while Ms. Gilbert is listed as president
of the corporation.
The N.C. Cemetery Commission
sent Gilbert a notice in January 1983
that he was not in compliance with
the commission's regulations, Ms.
Bry ant argued. Gilbert and the commission
do not agree on the amount

trust accounts should contain, so an
audit was ordered by Judge Greer.
Greer also told Gilbert that he
must pay the money assessed by
auditors toward the cemetery trust

Delayed consideration of a recommendation
from the Sunset Beach
Taxpayers' Association until a legal
opinion can be obtained on current
ownership of the parking area near
the pier now in the name of Beach
Enterprises, of which Ed Gore is
president. The association, in a letter
written by John G. McCarthy and
Minnie K. Hunt, suggests the town
reclaim the area, at one time offered
for dedication to the town for public
use, for public access and parking.
McCarthy said the letter was submitted
as the basis for a possible suit.
Monday's meeting, with approximately
26 residents or property
owners present, was held in lieu of an
August meeting because of a conflict
in Gordon's schedule. The board
