    Record number of turtle nests found at Cape Hatteras

    August 6, 2015

    Photo: US Geological Survey/creative commons The Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a prime nesting spot for both loggerhead and green sea turtles, threatened species that only return to the shore after years at sea to lay their eggs.

    UNC study: millenials drive less than the rest of us

This week brings more evidence of this fact, with news outlets across the country reporting that construction will begin on a $600 million wind power installation near Elizabeth City. Not only will it be the state's first utility-scale wind power plant, but actually the region's first.…
