We Come from Here, There, Everywhere

According to a recent analysis of wiiere
Bogue Banks property owners also hang
their hats, someone from every state in
the Union claims a piece of Bogue Banks
as their very own.
The analysis was done by Marlowe & Co.,
a Washington, D.C firm that represents in
the nation's capital many of the country's
beach areas. The results, according to
the analysts, once again emphasize that
Americans from all parts of the country are
attracted to the nation's coastal areas.
The study was conducted with
data supplied by the five Bogue Banks
Waste Pickup Woes Trigger Review
Some citizens have expressed concern
about the garbage and yard waste problems
experienced over the July 4 holiday. The
early schedule for pickup of garbage
and yard waste was prepared by Waste
Industries in the hope of working around the
traffic problems anticipated because of the
long weekend and the Tall Ships event.
However, in some cases it did not
work. And for that Waste Industries has
apologized. The volume of garbage and
yard waste took more time to collect than
anticipated due to the fact that some of
the yard waste was not properly prepared
for pickup. Properly prepared yard waste
helps to speed the collection process
A review of the garbage and yard waste
schedule is presently being conducted by
Waste Industries to ensure that this problem
does not occur again.
Thank you for your patience in this
situation, and for your concerns.

where representation is somewhat spotty

Vincent Larson of Beechwood Drive has
been appointed to the Pine Knoll Shores
Board of Commissioners to
fill the vacancy created by the
death last April of Jay Kocher.
The appointment came at
the town board's monthly
meeting July 11 and Larson
was immediately sworn in by
Town Clerk Ronda Lambert to
bring the five-member board
to full strength.

year term last November and
Larson will serve for the three and a half
years remaining in that term as prescribed
by current town charter. The town board
is in the process of considering a charter
amendment that would call for appointees
to future board vacancies to serve until
the next municipal election. That change,
expected to be voted on at the board's
August 8 monthly meeting, would bring

residence in anticipation of his retirement
the following year from IBM. They have also
sold their home in Raleigh and purchased
a smaller house in Wake Forest to have a
place to stay during family visits. Their two
children are Raleigh residents. They also
have two grandchildren.
