A group of residents and visitors is asking the new North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary to consider alternatives to building a proposed two-lane bridge between the Currituck mainland and the Outer Banks. The project has long been in the research and planning phase as a means to alleviate tourist traffic and offer another emergency evacuation route.

The death of a two-week old horse in Corolla has led a conservation group to hire beach patrols to educate the public about the wild horses that roam there. The horse died after being fed, which is against the law. Karen McCalpin is Executive Director of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. She says her small staff wasn't able to adequately protect the horses in their 11 mile, 75-hundred acre habitat.
