Fracas in Kill Devil Hills escalates to allegations of po...

I read all this on and found it hard to believe the story told by Kimberly Lane. People like her dump on the police when they get in trouble at a place where trouble frequently happens.  (Aug 12, 2008 | post #1)

Southern Shores installs 'No Thru Traffic' signs

Story at The new signs are an effort to stop short-cuts through town to Duck, Corolla and other points north. Will they? As this web site has said, if the town can't stop fireworks once a year, how is it going to enforce 'No Thru Traffic' 365 days a year?  (Aug 8, 2008 | post #1)

More Traffic Surveys on Need for Currituck bridge

OBX Alert probably has it right in saying the traffic stops on NC 12 in Southern Shores this Wednesday and Saturday to get more evidence on the need for a Mid Currituck bridge are further evidence that despite what the Turnpike Authority has been suggesting there is no guarantee there will be a bridge by 2013. There is still a good deal of opposition.  (Jul 21, 2008 | post #1)

Power Struggle: Southern Shores and its Vol. Fire Department

Stalemate could result in take-over of Fire Department The two are at loggerheads over the Fire Department’s request for a 23% budget increase without telling the town how the money will be used. However, the town has heard that, among other things, the Department wants to start paying its volunteers, beginning with the chief at $70,000 a year. Far more critical, however, is the issue of a new seven-year contract between Southern Shores and its Volunteer Fire Department, an independent corporation with a budget financed 83% by Southern Shores and 17% by Martins Point. Heretofore, contracts have stipulated that Southern Shores may take over all the assets of the Fire Department should the two be unable to agree on money. From:  (May 29, 2008 | post #1)

Kill Devil Hills PD Sergeant suspended

I don't get what The Informer wrote -- "holland was in KH in an unmarked car." Was that meant to be KDH? "He came upon a girl on the bridge." What bridge? Is there a bridge in KDH? Was it the Baum Bridge? This so-called "rumor" doesn't hang together.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #127)
