Will North Carolina Government Help NC Commercial Fishing Industry?

If you have read or know anything about the North Carolina fishing industry and the fishermen, you already know about the downward spiral of their businesses. Recently, I read another important article in the Fayetteville Observer titled Our View: Government can help save our state’s dying fishing industry.

When you think of the support given farmers (another group having a hard time), why does it not make sense to help in similar fashion our state's commercial fishermen? To me, it makes perfect sense to work towards preserving an industry that supports the local economy as well as bring us much better tasting seafood than the imports ever can!

Please take a moment to read the article in the Observer and, if you agree, contact your governmental leaders to state your opinion. The politicians work for us and need to know what we want for our great state.

The choice is yours!

Allergies and Some Relief?

As I was searching the web taking care of business, I noticed an online advertisement that caught my attention unlike so many others.

So often in the Sneads Ferry area, if you visit a doctor's office, you will see several people there with allergy problems. This is especially true during the Spring and Fall seasons as our beautiful real estate releases its pollen, mold, etc.

Well, today I noticed an advertisement for NASONEX where you can receive a free bottle (30 day supply) and you can get $10 off your next prescription. *By signing up online at you can be eligible to receive another $10 off each subsequent prescription for a year.

As a NASONEX user, I understand the need for the product and I also understand the cost! Hopefully, this may help provide some relief for you.

*Note: See details at the NASONEX site for eligibility requirements.

9/11/2001 - Do You Remember?

As another anniversary of that September 11th tragic day rolls by, I am reminded of the US soldiers who are around the world standing for us. For those of you who may not vividly remember the events of that day, here is another news site with the details of 9/11/2001.

For me, it doesn't matter if you support George W. Bush or not. It doesn't matter if you feel we need to pull our troops out today, tommorrow or sometime in the far distant future. It does matter that we all learn from those events and find a way to make things right for all.

Do I remember? Yes, I certainly do remember that day all too well.

At the time, I was located in one of the tallest buildings in Richmond, Virginia near the Federal Reserve Bank. When the first communications came across the news channels, our work area had received word via email that problems were going on in New York. One of our prior co-workers had just moved there and was working within a few blocks of the Trade Center.

When the second plane hit the tower, we were all concerned what other tall buildings would be under attack. Then we would see first hand what could happen...

Working with the Virginia Department of Transporation in the computer area, we had online access to the videocams overlooking the Virginia roadways. When the Pentagon was struck, a cam on a nearby bridge was knocked over and hanging by its cords upside down. It was then facing directly along the back of the plane looking right straight into the Pentagon where it crashed. This was one of the most sobering sights I have personally witnessed.

Please understand there are thousands of people that have been affected much more than I due to these events. Many died. Others traumatized for life. And yet, others go on with their lives picking up the pieces and recovering.

Let us never forget the trauma that has occurred nor, let us forget to say thanks to the heroes of those times who were willing to risk so much for so many.

911... Never forget!!!

Commercial Shrimping & Fishing Fading In Sneads Ferry

Recently, there is another article speaking about the demise of commercial shrimping and fishing in the Fayetteville Observer titled Sea Change: The demise of N.C. shrimping. If you want to better understand the plight and feelings of today's commercial fisherman, this is an absolutely must read.

Sneads Ferry North Carolina real estate by the waterfront of the New River and the Intracoastal Waterway is going up pricewise almost daily. The commercial fishermen and other workers are having an extremely difficult time raising enough money just to live where they have been for years. Condos, townhouses and expensive waterfront and waterview homes are driving up the cost of living and taxes leaving them no where to go.

Bourne Ultimatum Movie

The Bourne series has been a great hit to many people since The Bourne Identity was first out in theaters.

It all started out with The Bourne Identity. The agent who has no past but has only his code name. How will he go on with life? He fights and kills just for information about his past. He was abandoned by the FBI just because he was a test for training. He meets a girl from Tredstone and bonds with her just like James Bond but not just for the love. Tredstone is only a secret society formed by the FBI and used agents for killing people for a reason. She helps him out because first of all, he is being hunted by the FBI, and because she knows that he is going through a hard time with his life.

After that, The Bourne Supremacy made its way to theaters. Jason Bourne is still hunted by the FBI but has a way of knowing what they are going to do before they do so he is prepared. Sometimes he scares me just by spying on the FBI and I think that he might get sniped. He always know what he wants and is going to get it no matter what. Personally, I loved that movie as well as The Bourne Identity. Matt Damon plays Jason Bourne in The Bourne Ultimatum.

In my opinion, Matt Damon has done a great job playing Jason Bourne. Matt Damon has done a great job in other movies as well. He is a character of determination and willing to get objectives done. The Bourne Ultimatum is now playing at Jacksonville Theatres which is where I watched it for the 1st time.

In the new movie, The Bourne Ultimatum, Jason Bourne finds a man who has information about who he needs to see for information about his past. He tries to protect him but the man has no patience and is shot in the head by the FBI. (as you can tell, the FBI doesn't want Bourne to know anything about his past) Jason finally finds the man who he needs to find by the help of his girlfriend from the last two movies. He finds what he needs and everyone is left of at the end set up for another movie. We'll see what they do about Bourne (Damon)
