Through the power of music, these places and so many others have become a symbol for something bigger than their geographical location. That was what I felt as I passed road signs pointing the way to Charleston, Chattanooga and Georgia on a road trip we took down to Florida for some much needed vacation time.
These place names are so rich with history and are so lyrical sounding, I just wanted to use them to express the journey we felt we were on, not just on the road, but in our lives. Once the idea for the song hit, the actual writing of the lyrics came rather quickly.
What a gift that there are so many rhyming state names in America! And while not all the lines in this song are based in actual events, many are rooted in real ideas, emotions and experiences we had at the time.
And in a more metaphorical sense, I know the feeling of losing your shirt because you gambled on a losing hand. The line about getting high in West Virginia definitely merits some explaining, as it could easily be misunderstood.
As a non-drug-user, I had mixed feelings about keeping this line in the song, but left it as a tribute to John Denver, the musician who inspired it. As we drove south, climbing up and up through the winding roads in the mountains of Virginia, I remembered hearing John Denver speak at the PMRC hearing against Tipper Gore who was pressing record labels to put parental warning labels on albums with explicit lyrics.
Its picturesque gazebo is a popular site for wedding ceremonies. The new plan expands revitalization efforts into Riverstation, an industrial area north of the old railroad depot that includes many vacant and underutilized buildings, and Five Points, a mixed commercial and residential area.

Ttyon Palace, built in 1 by British Colonial Gov. William Tryon, is the centerpiece of the historic district. The palace and gardens were restored in the 1 s by the New Bern Preservation Foundation. Entanglement is a major issue for the mid-Atlantic coastal gill net fishery, which is comprised of several smaller, seasonal fisheries.
The fishery ranks among the highest in the Western North Atlantic for entanglement-related dolphin deaths. Dolphins may get tangled while eating fish from nets, a behavior known as depredation. But it is also possible they run into nets accidentally, says Andrew Read, a Duke University marine scientist who studies bottlenose dolphin behavior. Fishery Resource Grant FRG program to study whether acoustic deterrent devices called "Save Waves" effectively keep dolphins away from gill nets.
Used widely in Mediterranean fisheries, Save Waves produce random pulses of sound at the same level of intensity a dolphin uses to echolocate, a physiological process that involves emitting sound waves to locate distant objects, such as prey. Save Waves are anecdotal successes in Europe, but there has been very little scientific study to assess their effectiveness, says Read. If such devices can deter hungry or wayward dolphins, depredation and entanglements could be reduced, he adds.
Read decided to study the Spanish mackerel fishery in North Carolina because it experiences both dolphin depredation and entanglement. Bottlenose dolphins are capable of reducing Spanish mackeral catches by nearly 40 percent, according to one of his reports. These bycatch numbers may seem low, but the Spanish mackerel fishery is part of the larger mid-Adantic coastal gill net fishery, and TOP: A bottlenose dolphin surfaces near the Endurance.
Dave Swanner hauls in his nets as Erin Burke documents his catch. Swanner holds a basket of Spanish mackerel from his first set. The resulting totals for dolphin bycatch often exceed thresholds set by the National Marine Fisheries Service NOAA Fisheries for ensuring that botdenose dolphin populations remain stable.
Each Save Wave has a microcomputer that produces sound either between kHertzor kHertz. Lynne Williams uses a hydrophone to listen for echolocation behavior. Deterrent or Dinner? One of the biggest unknowns about Save Waves is whether bottlenose dolphins will get used to the noise with time, says Read. In previous studies, different acoustic devices called "pingers" initially kept harbor porpoises away from gill nets in the Gulf of Maine.
But pingers produce noise at a constant interval, and the porpoises adapted. In a FRG study, Read worked with two Hatteras fishermen to study bottlenose dolphin behavior around pingers.
When the devices were on, dolphins barely altered their travel patterns. Read speculated that, like the porpoises, the dolphins would grow accustomed to the constant pinging noise.
Moreover, Read believed they might eventually associate the sound with a net full of fish — a response he calls the "dinner bell effect. To properly randomize the study, Burke flips a coin to decide if the Save Waves will be activated during this trip. The coin lands on tails, meaning the devices will be silent today. Nearby, Read, researcher Kim Urian and graduate students Ari Friedlaender and Lynne Williams board the Proteus and begin scouting the area for dolphins.
Swanner turns up his marine radio and listens as a nearby captain reports only three mackerel on the last set. Another voice chimes in, reporting zero. Shaking his head, Swanner decides to try his luck near Frisco. The reel looks like an oversized spool of thread, wrapped with layers of green mesh netting that eventually will stretch the length of the water column.
Larger fish, like mackerel, are too big to pass through the net and instead become entangled in the mesh. Each Save Wave must be spaced yards apart to create optimum sound. But Swanner has four yard nets, meaning each net requires two Save Waves. A mother and her calf swim nearthe Proteus. Leaving Save Waves on the nets also is out of the question, as the powerful net reel would shatter them.
Save Waves are designed for European fisheries, which typically haul in nets by hand. If Save Waves were ever to be used in the United States, they would have to be redesigned to withstand hydraulic equipment, he adds. As each dolphin surfaces, Friedlaender photographs its dorsal fin for later identification.
The team is fairly sure these dolphins mostly live in estuarine areas, traveling from inlet to inlet. Data from past observations and photo identification indicate dolphins living primarily in the open ocean are more likely to depredate than their estuarine counterparts. Sea turtles, sharks and crabs are other likely suspects, but dolphins usually take the fall because of their highly visible, high- energy behavior. In a previous study, he and Urian observed a group of dolphins swim alongside as many as 10 gill nets without getting tangled.
To try and answer that question, Swanner designed a fake gill net — a corkline with floats but no actual netting. The team has recorded the same dolphins in both Hatteras and Beaufort, and they echolocate more in Beaufort, she says. If the water is turbid, dolphins may be forced to echolocate more frequently, he says.
Read suggests that dolphins use a range of senses to navigate their environment, including vision and passive listening. Without a clear understanding of how dolphins detect nets, it is difficult to develop new fishing gear or methods to reduce entanglements.
In addition to acoustic alarms, Read hopes to study whether altering net design would affect entanglement rates. Mesh with smaller holes and made of thicker material would be stiffer, possibly making it easier for dolphins to escape. But Read cautiously balances what is good for the ocean versus what is good for those who depend on it: Dunn and Waples report similar luck from the Shannon D.
Bad weather and unusually low fish catches last summer made it difficult to gather enough data to draw conclusions about dolphin response to Save Waves, says Read. Read and his team plan to return to Hatteras this summer to continue researching the devices, produced by Save Wave Dolphin Savers.
Atop a meter tower in an open field, a weather vane spins with each wind gust. It is not a relic of the past, but a possible symbol of the future: Installed last summer by the N. Solar Center as part of its Coastal Wind Initiative, the anemometer collects wind speed data every two seconds for minute intervals.
The Coastal Wind Initiative is attempting to educate and create excitement among national developers and local residents about areas where wind speed has the potential to produce power.
Wind maps of eastern North Carolina have been created for the Coastal Wind Initiative over the past couple of years. They have proved to be a useful tool for judging where wind power might be greatest in the state.
But experts say that certain regions in eastern North Carolina have great potential to harvest wind and convert it into energy.
The map also shows Class 5 wind areas in some spots off the coast, as well as Class 6 wind areas — the highest on the scale — offshore of the Outer Banks. The Solar Center, with funding from the U. Department of Energy and N. State Energy Office, started an anemometer loan program last summer to target areas in the eastern part of the state that potentially have sufficient wind.
The on-loan anemometers include wind vanes, data loggers and towers measuring 20 to 50 meters tall. You need to have one year to see what all four seasons look like. Coastal Federation, according to Mast. There, traffic problems are limited to the summer tourist season. Not far from his beach house is the anemometer he received from the N.
He had it installed at the nearby sewage treatment facility to keep it out of view. But the state is several years away from creating large-scale wind facilities, according to Bacchus, managing director ofTerrapin Wind, a company that hopes one day to create what he calls "wind farms" in eastern North Carolina.
Developers are having difficulty receiving long-term commercial financing right now, he says. It will be a catalyst for wind power if tomorrow someone started serving a seven-to-1 year contract. Bacchus also cites visual appearance as a critical factor. The developers hope to place wind turbines within a five-mile by five-mile area and supply enough electricity to power half of Cape Cod. Solar Center solar energy specialist Shawn Fitzpatrick wires the wind vane on a meter tower. The Coastal Wind Initiative provides data, such as maps identifying wind speeds.
A meter tower is being raised at Sneads Ferry as part of the anemometer installation process. Solar Center. But, he acknowledges, those who are opposed to the project have been very vocal. The Coastal Wind Initiative also includes a study to gauge public perceptions of wind power in eastern North Carolina. In an effort to balance and protect public uses of coastal waters, North Carolina only allows private leasing for shellfish aquaculture and on a limited per-acre basis.
This likely would require the support of other users of coastal waters such as commercial and recreational fishers and boaters," Clark says. The wind turbines he installs run through a battery and need a much lower-grade wind to produce electricity for a single location. They [wind turbines] are very cost-effective and a lot of fun.
The initial cost may sound expensive, but he cites one major long-term return: But the first step will be deciphering the data from the anemometers. Those numbers will determine if developing wind power sites in eastern North Carolina would be feasible. Coastal Resources Law, Planning and Policy Center is examining policies related to coastal wind power development.
Clark cites several complicated questions that need to be addressed before large-scale wind power is introduced to North Carolina. These include: The emphasis this year is on unguarded beaches. And most communities with guards often have them on duty for limited hours during the prime beach season. Tips on how to get out of a rip current — or help someone in trouble — go out to all beach visitors, including inland firefighters and rescue personnel taking well-deserved vacations.
In fact, this summer North Carolina ocean rescue teams have a special message for their inland counterparts: Instincts to help are not enough when it comes to rip currents. Too often, the experts say, those attempting a rip current rescue become victims themselves.
Instinct may alert firefighters to problems on the beach. But even these professionals need to know the simple steps of rip current safety. If no lifeguards are on duty, the first step for would-be rescuers is to call 9- 1 - 1.
Upon reaching the person in trouble, float together and try to keep the person calm. Often rip currents are only a few feet wide. Thus, those caught in a rip could swim parallel to the shore until safely out of trouble. Then swim toward shore at an angle. Break the Grip of the Rip was developed as a cohesive national beach safety message. It was modeled after successful state-based efforts, including North Carolina programs led by Sea Grant, NWS and beach communities since the s.
The North Carolina partnerships continue. In particular, Sea Grant is supporting ongoing efforts in Dare and New Hanover counties, intended as prototypes for other counties and communities. In Dare County, Sea Grant will work with Sandy Sanderson, Dare County emergency management director, and other local officials, to capture rip currents on video, as well as to tape rip current rescue training. These materials can be used for public service announcements, lifeguard training and other awareness programs.
The team also includes representatives of town, city and county agencies, the public schools, chambers of commerce and individual businesses. Efforts will include distributing Break the Grip of the Rip posters and brochures to schools and businesses, as well as refrigerator magnets for beach rentals and hotels.

Division of Public Health has been monitoring human health effects from harmful algal blooms HABs in North Carolina and other coastal states. Last fall, the state HAB program expanded testing to include water samples from public water supply reservoirs and treatment plants.
The State Laboratory of Public Health will be testing for microcystin, a toxin produced by some species of blue-green algae commonly found in North Carolina reservoirs. At high doses, microcystin can cause liver damage and even death. Although no human illness due to microcystin has been documented in North Carolina, other countries have reported cases, according to Ann N. But, i Chelminski cautions people to avoid swimming and eating shellfish or seafood collected from waters with an algal bloom.
In the near future, the program hopes to implement testing at the State Lab for other algal toxins such as saxitoxin that causes Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning.

Incredibly, Derek shared our enthusiasm for this project and graciously allowed us to work at a pace that made it possible to achieve all our goals, without any sense of being rushed.
Though we had a fairly clear sense of how we wanted the songs to sound, Derek brought a level of creativity and technical expertise that pushed everything to the next level, bringing the very best out of us and all the musicians who played on the recording.
With some very sketchy homemade demos of all the songs serving as guide tracks, we started the project by recording the acoustic guitar parts. For me, this is always a challenge. It is only under the unforgiving scrutiny of a studio microphone that you truly realize how many ways there are to make a mistake. Thankfully, we had access to some brilliant musicians who were eager to offer their talents to the project.
The second song on the album — Heading For The Coast — was completely altered when guitarist Mark Elliotson approached it with an inventive, rhythmic approach, helping it finally find its groove. The bottom end of the album was carried by three incredibly accomplished musicians:
