The Prisoner of Zenda

by: Anthony Hope

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (9 February 1863 – 8 July 1933), was an English novelist and playwright.He was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels but he is remembered predominantly for only two books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, “minor classics” of English literature, are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance, books set in fictional European locales similar to the novels Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name and the 1952 version.

Keeping Traditions Alive During an Unusual Holiday Season (StatePoint) This holiday season may look a bit different due to social distancing. But just because everyone is not physically together, doesn’t mean your family can’t share its favorite traditions. The Olesen family of O&H Danish Bakery knows how important holiday traditions are to feeling connected to loved ones. Now in its fourth generation, the family-owned and operated bakery is sharing its best tips for creating holiday cheer from anywhere: • Celebrate virtually: In a survey commissioned by O&H Danish Bakery and conducted by SWNS Media Group and OnePoll, nearly 80 percent of respondents say time with family is their favorite part of the holiday season. Whether your tradition is a Christmas movie marathon, a caroling session around the piano or eating certain foods and baked treats, you can enjoy these activities together over video chat this year. • Share traditional foods: The sensory memories that good food creates are powerful. In fact, 44 percent of people say the holiday spirit wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t have their traditional holiday dessert.

• Plan ahead: When it comes to ordering gifts and specially baked treats, make sure to account for busy schedules and congested delivery services to ensure all your goodies arrive on time. Take note of shipping times and policies, as well as ordering deadlines for each company. For example, O&H allows customers to pre-order Kringle and schedule a preferred delivery date in the future. • Create hygge: Evoking the sights, sounds and aromas of a typical holiday season will help make this year feel more cheerful. Take a cue from Danish culture and embrace hygge. Pronounced “hoo-ga,” it means creating a cozy atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life, such as the warm glow of candlelight or a steaming cup of cocoa -- and there is no better time of year to do it than the holiday season. This year might be especially difficult for families who are physically separated, but there are many ways to spread cheer and keep traditions alive.

Keeping Your Dog Safe from Heartworms

A

ll it takes is one bite from an infected mosquito and your dog can contract Heartworms. One bite. Heartworms are transmitted from the mosquito bite to your dog’s bloodstream in the form of a parasitic worm. These worms mature in your dog’s bloodstream, mate and produce offspring. The worms settle in the heart, lungs and blood vessels. As the worms age, they continue producing more offspring until your dog’s pulmonary system is so compromised that breathing becomes difficult and the heart is unable to pump. Sadly, left untreated, this disease can be fatal. However, avoiding this disease is as easy as one Heartworm pill a month.

and inexpensive. There are many different types of preventative medications that can be taken monthly. Often these medications include preventative for fleas and other parasites. Heartworms should not be taken lightly. Without treatment, Heartworms are fatal. Treatment is successful but also costly for the owner and difficult for the dog. The best way to avoid Heartworm infection in your pet is to have your dog tested and begin a monthly preventative. The prevention for Heartworms Is much easier and cost efficient than the cure!

Heartworms look like spaghetti and can be 4-12 inches long. A dog can have as many as 250 worms living in his heart. These worms can live 7 years and do a tremendous amount of damage to your dog’s heart and lungs and ultimately result in a terrible and untimely death.

“Midway have it your way with prestige, trustworthy repair from bumper to bumper."

Symptoms of Heartworms in your dog range from occasional cough to trouble breathing, fatigue, and chronic cough. By the time these spaghetti- like worms have taken over your dog’s heart, the inability for the blood to flow through the heart causes death. Dogs should be tested and begin their preventative at 6 months. Heartworm treatment is simple, easy

How Sweet It Is (Part Two) chdomecq@hotmail.com by: Coy Domecq ast month in Part One, I looked at the unhealthy love affair that Americans have with the consumption of white granulated sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Alternatives are available and just may be a bit better for our health. A relative newcomer on the US plant-based sweet spectrum is stevia (Stevia rebaudiana), native to Brazil and Paraguay and a member of the chrysanthemum family. According to the FDA, stevia is classified as a food supplement rather than a sugar substitute. This plant product has no calories, no carbohydrates and is up to 200 times sweeter than sugar. It has a low glycemic index and therefore is more beneficial, or less harmful, for those with diabetes. As with many recently introduced foods, there remains controversy and uncertainty regarding the health effects, often depending upon the sponsors of research findings. Stevia is available as a blended product because many consumers report a somewhat bitter aftertaste associated with stevia alone.

GINGER “MOLASSES” COOKIES

of GRAS – Generally Recognized as Safe. Recommendation for those with allergies to cucurbits (cucumbers, gourds, pumpkins, etc.) is to avoid monk fruit products. When using these sweeteners in many traditional sugar-based baking recipes, it is important to find an ingredient balance between sugar and the sweetener in order to achieve expected browning and rising results. Some monk fruit sweeteners are formulated as a oneto-one volume and taste replacement for sugar. More specific recipes are becoming available that eliminate the sugar component in its entirety. You can find both of these sweetener products at better food purveyors.

(from: https://www.lakanto.com/blogs/recipes/ginger-molasses-cookies) • 2 cups almond flour • ½ cup butter  • tsp vanilla extract  • 1 tsp baking soda  • 2 Tbsp gelatin  • 1 Tbsp nutmeg  • 2 tsp cloves 

- 1 cup Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener - 2 large eggs  - 1 tsp salt  - ½ cup almond butter  - 2 Tbsp ginger  - 2 Tbsp cinnamon  - ¼ cup Lakanto Simple Syrup, Original 

1. Combine Simple Syrup, gelatin, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and stir well. Let sit for five minutes. 2. Mix well together in a separate bowl: butter, Baking Sweetener and eggs.   3. Add in “molasses” and stir to combine. Mix almond flour, baking soda & salt into wet ingredients and mix just until combined.   4. Bake in a 325 degree preheated oven for 12-14 total minutes. 5. After 5 minutes of cooking, press down on cookies with spatula to flatten, continue cooking until done.  

Next on the horizon is the introduction of Lo Han Kou, or the monk fruit (Siraitia grosvenorii). This native Thai/ Chinese gourd-like plant has been used for centuries, mentioned in 13th century Chinese writings, and is approximately 200-300 times sweeter than sugar. Monk fruit is unique in that it derives its sweetness component from the antioxidant mogrosides it contains. The FDA approved it as a sweetener in 2010 with a designation

JIM KAIGHN INSURANCE AGENCY- HOME OF THE “INSURANCE DOCTOR” by Jim KAIGHN, CLU,CHFC,RHU,AABA, BSBA,LUTCF Veteran of U.S. NAVY and COAST GUARD

M

“ GETTING CHECKUPS”

any of us mere mortals have problem once in a while with out own health,our vehicles have hiccups..

When we feel bad, either a headache or pain in our joints or something worse, we know something might be wrong with us, so we head to our favorite doctor to get a review of our health situations to make sure if something is wrong, our doctor has the smarts to know what to do for us, either medicine or surgery to correct our problem.. We, the people know we had a problem and turned to an expert to fix it........ When we are driving our vehicle and it hiccups or does not start easy or runs off key.. When this happens, we call our favorite car mechanic, take the car in, tell him what you think the problem is and he will do diagnostic tests to find out what is wrong, finds the problem and offers a fix for you.. After that, the vehicle runs smoothly..........................Now, we buy our insurance policies, either because we have to have it, vehicle insurance , or home owners.. or we buy policies that is voluntary.. Life insurance or health insurance.. We buy it from agents we know or do not know!! Well, first of all YOUR DOCTOR, you most likely know!!! YOUR MECHANIC, you most likely know!! You know these people have had much training.. A doctor, probably five years or more, Your mechanic, certified by some organization and many years studying all different kinds of vehicles........BUT, BUT.. Insurance agents do have to take a state

training course, pass an exam, and go to classes each year to keep our license current. But some of these classes do not teach much for agents to learn more.. YOU, THE BUYING PUBLIC, think all agents are competent,, you have no way of knowing if your policies have been written correctly, for they can’t complain to you, you can not read the printouts.. Your agent might try to explain it to you, but are You still confused..... YOU FOLKS CAN CALL ME, I am the “INSURANCE DOCTOR”, For 40 years ,I have been helping people, like you. to review All your contracts, NO CHARGE, NO COMMENTMENT!!

ast month I reported that Northeastern North Carolina was being geographically discriminated against by the current NC Marine Fisheries Commission due to their lack of a recreational fisherman appointment on the commission from NENC. One of the main reasons this has been allowed to happen is because recreational fishermen in our part of the state, along with others in different parts of the state, do not have a true organization to represent and promote their interests in hearings, public comments, the legislative process and the lobbying processes. The so called organizations that claim they represent the interests of the recreational anglers is just a giant smokescreen and they are pushing for their own radical agendas, regardless how it truly affects the recreational angler. What is a Recreational Angler? They are anglers that target recreational species of fish on their boats or hire recreational charter captains. So Charter Captains are considered in the group with recreational anglers. A recreational angler is one who fishes off the surf with the aid of a 4x4 or parks and walks to their fishing spot. Recreational anglers also fish off bridges, as well as public and private fishing piers. Recreational fishermen use kayaks, canoes and jet skis to fish. These same recreational anglers are the ones who live nearby or are visitors who visit and make a huge economic impact on the local economy by making purchases at local tackle shops, marinas, boat dealers and repair shops, hotels, restaurants, and gas stations.

charter boats, kayak, and other fishing platforms. The time has come for all of these groups to band together in the name of protecting our access to the public fishery. It is time for our user group to have a seat at the table and a voice in those regulations that will affect our lives as recreational fishermen. There is one group that does exist who claims they represent recreational fishermen; however, their actions over the last few years say otherwise. I also find it ironic that this group does not have a chapter in Dare County or any of the NENC surrounding counties. Ask yourself, “Are our areas in NENC being shut out of the process and our right to have representation on the board because we are not a member of their group?. We must organize and start a counter organization that will give the recreational fishermen not only in our area a voice in the process, but those others in the state that are not being represented because of a certain group’s policy views and power grabs. We need all of these user groups to come together so we can have one true voice based on sound science and best practices. Hopefully. I will have some good news on this grassroots effort to form such a group at the beginning of the year. If this idea comes to fruition, we will need every recreational angler to join and support this group so we can have representation in the fisheries management process.

With all the economic impact recreational fishermen make, it is a shame we do not have a single group that truly represents the interests in the surf, pier, private boat,

Dear Dr. Crime: Our son will move when he finishes school. What are the most dangerous places for him to avoid? NoName Dear Mom: So many parents have that question. Chicago had the highest violent crime rate ( 884.26 violent crimes per capita) with New York City (rate of 596.7) and Los Angeles (rate of 490.71) not far behind. Rural North Carolina is a nice place. Dear Dr. Crime: Has the virus pandemic caused harmful stress, and if so is it related to crime?

al relationship has been shown by research and other ways. I saw that when I was a probation officer and when I worked in a prison. The amount of stress by people around the world is major, because of the virus pandemic. John Hopkins University recently reported the death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic has topped 215,000 in the United States, which is more Americans than died in World War I (116,516 deaths), the Vietnam War (58,209), and the Korean War (36,516) – combined. Lean on your psychotherapist, and others skilled in helping stress related issues. Dear Dr. Crime: Should I be scared of an officer just because he is a cop? Isn’t that the same thing as expecting something bad because of race? Bi-racial citizen Dear Citizen: I know cops about as well as anyone, and they have been given a bad rap recently. USA Today did a major study of police and reported over 99% of police never used excessive force. Yet, the public concerns are real in that bad policing does occur. The best response is that of the current issue of Monitor on Psychology running a major report on techniques of training. There is much we can do but consider what the cops face. Dear Dr. Crime: When a death sentence is ordered by the state, does doing the killing of the criminal effect the correctional staff ?? Christine. Dear Chris: Yes. The Monitor on Psychology has a report on that in the current issue. They report research shows that the aftereffects can be devastating. I would expect that, as the officers and the offender likely have known one another for a long time. The state authorized killing leads to symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder among all staff involved with the execution. Readers: Want to help with a survey I am doing?

History changed however when during the last 400 years, Indigenous governments formed a nation relationship with colonial governments and ultimately the United States government. Colonial governments depended on Native governments in order to survive, although the coexistence of the two was often met with many challenges. As colonial governments began to grow and expand, a dependence on Native governments began to wane and territorial encroachment increased. Consequently, territorial expansion and acquisition emboldened the colonizers to subjugate Native tribal governments and ironically, all tribal governments later found themselves dependent on the United States government instead. While unintentional, this dependence subsequently became the norm for tribes after several decades, resulting from a culmination of starvation, war, deception, and the will to survive. Thus when decades later, a US Commander in Chief offered a suggestion to tribes that they should “just do it” and manage their tribe’s own natural resources, many tribal leaders were dumbfounded that such a suggestion would be made without tribes first obtaining permission from the federal government before taking action. The President was in essence invoking the idea that tribes are indeed sovereign and should so act accordingly. This current dependence on the federal government is not the same nation to nation relationship that tribes once had with the federal government. The assertion of tribal governments to exert their sovereignty should not require permission. “Just do it.”

Art in the Albemarle Area

by: Talmage Dunn

N

ovember!! What a wonderful month, the colors have changed on all the leaves, there is a cool crispness in the air, and arts and craft fairs are beginning to start back, although much differently because of social distancing! Everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is one of the favorite times of the year to be an artist and craftsman. If the opportunity arises please take the time to support our local artists and craftsmen at the myriad of fairs and shows in our area. This is the opportunity for you to “ get your art on!” Go to the craft fairs and bazaars. Check out the artwork that is available in your area. Many times our visits to the local community activities will allow us to see the work of some amazing artists. There is a great deal of artwork to be viewed and retained during this time of year. Perhaps you will see a bit of work that you had thought about creating but didn’t have the opportunity to get to make. Spend time talking to the artisan or crafter. Many of these people are more than willing to share with you. But if you don’t ask, you will never find out! Just remember the social distancing rules.Take your time when going through the exhibits. If you see something you like purchase it. Support your local artisans and craftsmen. Don’t forget the old addage...” Sure you can make it …. but will you?”

project, your first time will be a challenge. However, the more you attempt them, the faster and better you will get. Don’t rush.... have fun with these projects! Check out the arts and crafts classes offered in and around your county. Feel free to contact me by e-mail bowhuntor@yahoo.com or by phone 252-267-5437. Talmage Dunn, Artist.

With the Holiday season coming up soon, consider making a few personal cards. I assure you people love getting hand made cards. You will have hours of fun making your own greeting cards. It is relaxing and illuminating. It becomes an act of putting something of yourself into a card especially painted for someone near and dear to you. If you have never done this before, I encourage you to get yourself a kit, (usually you have to go on-line or to an art store), break out your paints and have fun!! You may even consider making your own “pop_up” cards. There are a plethora of lessons that can be found instructing you on how to create these cute cards. Try to extend your talents this holiday season. Don’t limit yourself. Do something you have wanted to try. You will never know unless you make the attempt. As with any other

Orthodox Christianity

T

Orthodox Sunday Morning Worship

he name for what happens on Sunday morning depends on the religious tradition.

For Evangelicals (like my own upbringing) and most Protestants, the Sunday service is generally called “Morning Worship.” Charismatic and Pentecostal Christians will often call this service a “Celebration” or “Praise.” Other Protestants like Lutherans will use the term “Divine Service.” Or, the service can be called, simply, “Holy Communion” or “the Eucharist” to call attention to the essence of the celebration. Episcopalians use the term “Morning Prayer” or “the Holy Eucharist.” The Roman Catholic Church uses the term “Mass,” also in reference to the Eucharist. The Orthodox Church uses an odd word, and has done so for over a thousand years. It calls the Sunday morning service “Divine Liturgy.” “Liturgy” is from an old Greek word for a “community duty, or responsibility.” In the old cities of Greek and Roman antiquity, wealthy families were assigned to take care of certain needs of the city. One family might be called upon to provide the upkeep of a public bath. Another might have to take care of the public “jakes” (i.e., the public restrooms, which were not rooms at all, but rather open bench-withholes affairs that underscored the “public” and made impossible any rest). In providing for these public works, the wealthy family was performing a “liturgy,” in the secular sense of the word. In the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old

facebook.com/AlbemarleTradingPost

by Fr Jonathan Tobias, MDiv, MSEd

Testament produced about 200 years before Christ, the word “liturgy” was used for public worship in the Hebrew scripture. In its religious meaning, “Liturgy” is the service that Christians performed for God. And this is an important moral in Orthodox Christianity. The Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning, which is well over 1600 years old, is an offering to God first. Participants in Liturgy do not judge the service for how inspiring or moving it was. The main, and really only, intention is that God the Father is praised through Jesus Christ, in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Did you know the Albemarle Tradewinds is located in more than 250 locations in NENC and Chesapeake?

But the beautiful, central truth of Christianity is the fact that if we give our whole self as an offering to God, He exchanges gifts with us. In turn, He offers the Body and Blood of His Son Jesus Christ to us in the Eucharist. St Ignatius of Antioch called the Eucharist “the medicine of immortality.” There is no better gift than this. That is why Orthodox Christians call Sunday morning worship “liturgy” -- it is our worship of giving ourselves away to God. And the essence, the heart and treasure of worship is the Eucharist, when God gives away Himself to us.

Museum of the Albemarle

By Wanda Lassiter, Curator, Museum of the Albemarle

Women Breaking Barriers in Northeastern North Carolina The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in America. As institutions across our country commemorate this event, the museum has embraced the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources’ initiative “She Changed the World.” In our related exhibition, we focus on women of northeastern North Carolina and how their experiences, stories, and challenges have factored in history. Women have played and always will play an integral part in every aspect of history. By advocating for what they believe and envisioning a different world, these women leave remarkable stories of adversity and hope, with grit, determination, perseverance, and talent that changed the world. The exhibit is set to open on Friday, November 20, 2020. Come explore this exhibit, read the stories, and ponder on how the barriers that these women broke, or helped break, in areas such as women’s suffrage, public service, literature, athletics, journalism, activism, religion, entertainment, and more, affect your life today. Some women may not have been the first to break a barrier but played a role in a larger movement that affected the people of our nation. Sometimes a single person standing up for what they believe is right can influence others to make an even bigger difference. 

historical societies, libraries, historians, genealogical societies, teachers, professors, county officials, and other state and private institutions, for names of women across northeastern North Carolina who have broken barriers or who were a part of a larger movement that affected the people of the region, state, and nation. We received over 120 responses from the community and compiled biographies for most of these submissions for this partnered exhibition.

The Museum of the Albemarle is located at 501 S. Water Street, Elizabeth City, NC. (252) 335-1453. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Closed Sundays and State Holidays. Serving Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hertford, Hyde, Northampton, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, and Washington Counties, the museum is the northeast regional history museum of the North Carolina Division of State History Museums within the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources, the state agency with the mission to enrich lives and communities and the vision to harness the state’s cultural resources to build North Carolina’s social, cultural and economic future.

Chicken of the Sea

by: Roger Canaff

S

hortly before reporting for duty on my first ship in 1963, she was involved in a collision in San Francisco Bay. According to shipmates, the captain (a well connected naval reserve commander) was heard to say to the exec as collision was imminent,”Well, John, there goes my fourth stripe”. As the Navy cliché goes, a collision can ruin your day. To make matters worse, the captain had just taken command, and this was his first voyage, from Adak, Alaska to San Franscisco.

Shortly aferward, the captain appeared on the bridge. I briefed him on rhe other ship in the vicinity; he appeared not to be listening. The better part of a minute went by with silence. Then, he said to me in a shaky voice, “Mr. Canaff. Right full rudder” I barked the order to the helmsman, and the ship began to turn. After what seemed a long time, he said, “Steady on 180” which was, basically, returning to port in Kittery, Maine. His short explanation? The drop in barometer portended a hurricaine!

I reported to the USS Aeolus (ARC-3) as a boot ensign, fresh from 90-day wonder school (Naval OCS) in March 1963. In a few months time, I qualified as OOD.

The captain, who had spent most of his time in the Pacific, was deathly afraid of the climate in the North Atlantic. To prepare himself, he had enrolled in a correspondence course on weather, and had learned that a sudden drop in air pressure often indicated a tropical storm, nor’easter, or worse. He wanted no part of that!

As an Officer of the Deck, one basically drives the ship on a watch, typically four hours. Obviously, the CO has to sleep (for example), or has other things to do. As OOD we were required to keep the captain informed of any threats to the ship’s well being, threats such as another ship which might collide on the open ocean, or worsening weather. On this particular night, my standing orders were to notify (awaken) the skipper if another ship was projected to pass within three miles or so, or the barometer had fallen by a certain amount. Both of these circumstances occurred. I called down the voice tube to his stateroom to report them.

18

After a couple of other instances of aborting missions because of (not so) foul weather, the type commander relieved him and they gave him command of a naval training center in the Midwest, safely away from salt water. Not before, however, the crew labelled him King Tuna, Chicken of the Sea.

North Carolina Bow Hunters Association by: Talmage Dunn

I

ts already November! Almost half of the 2018-2019 deer hunting season has gone by. I hope you have had the opportunity to get out hunting and also had the chance for a shot at the deer in your area. Remember … its not about the end result... its about your journey as a hunter, tracker, and citizen game manager. Continuing being a good steward of our natural resources and following the game management practices established by our Wildlife Resources Commission is your responsibility as a hunter or fisherman. I would be remiss in my duties, at this juncture, if I did not take the time to mention the multitude of game lands provided for hunters and fishermen in our awesome state. If you have never had the time to go to one of these game lands, as a hunter, you are doing yourself a disservice. Some of our game lands are a bowhunter’s paradise. The reason for this, other than the game management practices provided by the NCWRC, is there are bowhunting only areas. No worries about dogs, no worries about guns, just the opportunity to enjoy the woods and fields in solitude. Of course, as a hunter, scouting these areas is a must. Archery hunting by itself is adheres to the social distancing rules. Some news from the North Carolina Bowhunter’s Association:

throughout the spring and summer if in these covid times that is possible.There are a myriad of tournaments, some for the serious tourney shooter and some for those that just want to get out and fling arrows and improve accuracy! Better yet, if shooting in a tournament is not for you, take the time to make your own 3-D target. I have written on this in past articles and I will write more on creating your own for far less cost after the hunting season. While in our state we are allowed to bowhunt the entire season, when hunting during firearm season, you must follow the game laws for firearms. Be sure to practice safe hunting techniques. Wear international (blaze) orange during the firearm season, even if you are only bowhunting!!! We want all of our hunters to enjoy the hunt and come home safely to your family. Always check your gear for loose mechanisms, your life may depend on it! Until next month, stay safe and have fun in the woods. Respectfully submitted. Talmage Dunn bowhuntor@yahoo.com 252-267-5437 District 1 Wildlife Rep for NCBA

1) The NCBA Butner hunt has taken place, for the second time, and as the results come in I will report on the hunt, If past history continues, it will have been an exceptional. Particularly because we camped on our own land this year dor the second year. 2) The NCBA Women’s hunt has taken place. It was the second Annual NCBA hunt for women only. It was in October. It was for all women not just members of the NCBA. There was a dinner afterward. 3) Consider becoming a member of the NCBA. Help protect our future as bowhunters. Some organizations and some political leaders would like to reduce our bowhunting seasons or eliminate our sport all together. Remember, bowhunting is an earned privilege, not a constitutional right. A unified voice of North Carolina’s bowhunters will guarantee a bright future for your sport.

Expanded Exhibit at the Frisco Native American Museum Nature Trail

V

isitors to the Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center are often surprised to find what appears to be a modern fishing boat displayed on the nature trail. The boat is actually representative of a long tradition in Native American culture—construction of a vessel to navigate water. Although the canoe is the most readily recognized craft in native culture, Native Americans, like other groups, adapted their skills to meet changing needs based on materials and tools available, geography, and economic/social requirements. The 32 foot round bottom shad boat on display at the museum was built around 1927 by Joseph Stewart Midgette, a craftsman from Mashoes, North Carolina, with Native American heritage. Also known as a Croatan fishing boat, Pamilco Sound boat, Albemarle Sound boat, Dare County shad boat, and spritsail shad boat the style actually originated on Roanoke Island in the late 1800’s and was used through the early 1900’s. It was declared the Official State Historic Boat in 1987. With a shallow draft, it was sturdy and flexible as a working vessel.

by: Joyce Bornfriend

The ninety-three year old boar built by Joseph Stewart Midgett was operated with the traditional spritsail. The mast was converted for crab netting in the 1970’s and removed when crab pots replaced fishing/crab lines. It continued as a working boat until 1984. The exhibit is not just a reflection of Stewart’s skill and love of the water but also a tangible example of the endurance and adaptability of Native American values exemplified through his remarkable craftsmanship . The Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center is located on Hatteras Island and is currently closed due to COVID-19. For more information, call 252-9954440 or visit the museum website at www.nativeamericanmusuem.org. The Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center is located on Hatteras Island and is open Tuesday–Sunday from 10:30 AM 5:00 PM.

How to Save Money on Pet Care (NewsUSA) - Owning a pet has a lot of perks, but caring for one can take its toll on your wallet. According to the ASPCA, owning a dog or cat can cost up to $1,000 in the first year, and many people end up spending much more. The good news is you can cut your pet care expenses without compromising your pet’s health and well-being. Here are a few ways you can save money and keep your pet healthy. 1. Don’t skip the vet. If you’re trying to save money, it can be tempting to cut back on veterinary visits. But according to Julie Ciarmella of the American Veterinary Medicine Association, “an investment in preventive healthcare can reduce your long-term pet healthcare costs.” Why? Because regular check-ups can prevent expensive complications down the road. 2. Get by with a little help from your friends. Dog-walking, pet-sitting and kennel services can be some of the most expensive aspects of owning a pet. You can save money by taking the “you scratch my dog’s back, I’ll scratch

22

your cat’s chin” approach and tapping into a network of other pet owners in your area. Neighborhood dog parks are great places to meet like-minded pet lovers; or, you could try good old-fashioned advertising. 3. Choose high-quality pet products that give you more value for your money. Reaching for the cheapest product can feel like a thrifty move, but you may be surprised by the impact “cheap” products can have on your budget. For example, cheaper clay cat litter needs to be changed more often, so cat owners go through bag after bag. World’s Best Cat Litter is an alternative that harnesses the concentrated power of corn for long-lasting performance. You’ll use less litter, replace it less often and save money in the long run. In the end, remember that what your pet needs most is love. Keep things simple and invest in high-value products where it matters, and you’ll be on your way to a pet care budget that works for you.

The Proof Is In The Pudding

For more recipes, tours of my garden, and the occasional travelogue, please visit with Rosie at KitchensAreMonkeyBusiness.com. For any culinary questions, e-me at Rosie Hawthorne@gmail.com.

By Rosie Hawthorne

I

have to rate Thanksgiving as my favorite holiday for two reasons - gifts are not involved and food is paramount. And you know I’m all about the food. Thanksgiving Day is always grand, but I must admit I enjoy the day after just as much, if not more -that cornucopia of food is still there and all the work has already been done. So, for the post-Thanksgiving celebration, I want to add a little sparkle to the mix and do just a little prep work for something special - a sweet and light corn pudding that I think of as a hybrid dish. It can serve either as another flavorsome side dish, or leftover for a breakfast dish, or, with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, as a non-traditional dessert. However you serve it, it’s a special treat for a special day. The recipe here makes enough for 3 8-ounce ramekins, but it can easily be doubled. I’ve made these several times with both canned corn and fresh corn and guess what. I prefer the fresh corn cut off the cob. The pudding is smoother and tastes, well, fresher. If you’re using canned corn, drain it well and pat dry.

After Thanksgiving Corn Pudding

Prepare ramekins: Generously butter ramekins and sprinkle in sugar, turning to coat. Tap out excess. Place on baking sheet.

Approximately 3 tsps each butter and sugar for preparing ramekins 1 tsp lemon zest 1 TB sugar ¼ cup flour 2 TB sugar 1 cup corn kernels (preferably sliced off the cob) 1/2 cup heavy cream ⅛ tsp kosher salt ½ stick unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 1 egg yolk 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 tsp lemon zest 3 egg whites, room temperature 2 TB sugar

In a small bowl: Combine 1 tsp lemon zest with 1 TB sugar. Mix together and save it for sprinkling on top of puddings right before they go into the oven.

For 3 8-ounce ramekins

Did you know the Albemarle Tradewinds is located in more than 250 locations in NENC and Chesapeake?

In a small blender: Combine corn, heavy cream, and salt. Pulse until smooth.

You know what? This would be a sweet change for breakfast and excellent with some fruit on it. I can taste maybe blueberries or blackberries.

In a medium sauce pan: Whisk together the flour (¼ cup) and sugar (2 TB). Add puréed mixture to flour and sugar in saucepan. Set over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly about 6 minutes, until mixture forms a shiny ball. Remove from heat and stir in butter, a small piece at a time until fully incorporated. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and let cool to room temperature. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla, and 2 tsp zest. In a stand mixer with whisk attachment: Whip egg whites on medium speed until light and foamy. Gradually whip in remaining 2 TB sugar until whites hold soft peaks. Do not overbeat. Using a spatula, fold ¼ of the whites into the corn mixture until just a few streaks remain. This is for lightening the mixture. Gently fold in the remaining whites, being careful not to deflate them. Divide the mixture evenly among the three ramekins. Run a finger along the inside edge of each ramekin to create a small channel to aid in rising. Sprinkle each evenly with the lemon/sugar mixture.

If you have extra people, the recipe doubles quite nicely. Enjoy!

Bake the puddings in a 400° oven about 12 minutes or until golden on top. Never open the door during baking. Transfer the ramekins to serving dishes and dust with powdered sugar.

Was the first government gun confiscation attempt foiled by an unsung colonial heroine?

G

un control people don’t seem to get just how deeply etched into the American psyche gun ownership goes and that the resistance to being disarmed by their own government runs even deeper. Private arms have been confiscated from the populace in almost every other country in the world. Europeans and even the Australians have given them up without so much as a whimper. But here there is something about the private ownership of firearms that is fundamentally American, and I doubt the people in any other country can appreciate that fact with the possible exception of the Israelis and the Swiss who are armed to the teeth though even they may surrender their weapons if the authorities come for them. But Americans? I’m not so sure.

Today, firearms and ammunition are getting harder and harder to find because Americans are buying guns and ammo, especially the kind that would fit a military description, as fast as they put them on the store shelves. Furthermore, Americans in record numbers are burying guns and ammo. Why? Many are expecting severe gun control and even a second attempt at gun confiscation. Second? Yes. The first attempt It’s hard to determine just when the the colonists began having problems with their English masters. The causes of dissension between England and her 13 American colonies were many. Thomas Jefferson listed some in the Declaration of Independence. We can go back to at least the Sugar Act of 1764 which established taxes not only on sugar but a host of other goods. After that came the Stamp Act (more taxes), the Quartering Act (requiring colonists to house and feed British troops), and a host of others. The colonials resisted, and there were demonstrations one of the most famous being the Boston Tea Party. Yet, none were enough to push the colonists to open rebellion. Then, on April 18, 1775, British General Thomas Gage sent 700 trained troops to Concord, Massachusetts. On the dawn of the 19th, 70 men farmers, clerks, storekeepers stood fast and faced the British advance guard at Lexington Green. History does not know who fired the first shot, what Ralph Waldo Emerson called …the shot heard round the world.

By John Silveira

And what sin, what transgression did the British commit to bring on armed conflict? They had come for their guns. Their own government had come to disarm them. The first battles of the Revolutionary War were fought over… gun control. It is, I believe, the first and only revolution in history borne of a government’s attempt to remove weapons from its citizenry. There is one nagging question, though: History has long asked how the colonists knew the British were coming. There was good intelligence that let us know they were on their way and what they were coming for, and there’s a fair amount of evidence that the colonists were tipped off by a woman, none other than General Thomas Gage’s New Jersey-born wife, Margaret Kemble Gage, who sympathized with the Colonial cause. But, did she really? We don’t know. However, even Gage himself suspected her and packed her off to England to spare himself embarrassment. After the war was won, the Founding Fathers never divulged the source of their intelligence even though whoever was responsible should have been hailed a hero…or heroine. What more plausible reason for their silence than to protect the woman who now had to live in Britain. What better way to protect the woman to whom we are all indebted? Today, Americans have almost no memory of her. But, without her, it’s likely there would have been no Paul Revere’s ride, no Second Amendment, and the Patriots may have been unarmed at the Battle of Bunker Hill. If George Washington can be called the “Father of Our Country,” perhaps General Gage’s wife, Margaret, the wife of the man our Founding Fathers so roundly hated, should rightfully be called the “Mother of Our Country.”

All but forgotten by history, Margaret Kemble Gage may be a genuine American heroine. But there are neither statues, historical sites, nor landmarks to honor her not even a postage stamp. There is only Gage Road, named for her, in Brunswick, New Jersey, her hometown. This 1771 portrait, by the American artist John Singleton Copley, is the only likeness we have of her.

Today, Americans fearing confiscation are burying guns to hide them from…their government. I don’t want to see an armed revolution in this country, and I think the American people are going to put up with even more abuses from our “leaders” before that will happen, just as our forefathers put up with their British masters for so many years. But, if they come for our guns…I don’t want to predict what may happen, but don’t be surprised if we become witness to the Second Revolutionary War.

Wanted: Convictions at any Price Part 3

I

n the year between indictment and trial, Fleming strives to disprove the false confession. For one, he is convinced while the witnesses may have seen a car out there at 3 a.m., they could not have seen Hammill or Michaels. Witness statements conflict: Hammill could not have left the party house at 3 a.m. on foot and also be present 2½ miles away where the couple witnessed an Impala with a small group of people standing nearby when they drove by at 3 a.m. Fleming performs three timed trials walking at different speeds from the house to the death scene, establishing a range between 26 and 32 minutes to make that walk in the dark. Fleming’s wife confirms the times on a second stopwatch she sets when she drops him at the party house, then drives to the location of Hammill’s death, where she waits reading a book by flashlight, while her husband walks the route. Fleming remembers feeling like he couldn’t sleep for the entire year in which he worked the case. One night while in bed, he suddenly questions the witnesses’ descriptions of the car taillights, so he arises and makes a Google search for Chevy Impalas. Photos show that the taillights the witnesses described are inconsistent with the 1971 four-door Impala Dale Todd was driving at the time. Fleming confirms this discrepancy at a classic car restoration shop, learning that the taillights described by the witness were used only on one year’s model, the 1968 Chevrolet Impala. Fleming reviews the discrepancies with the prosecutors, who offer to reduce the charges from 1st degree murder to 2nd degree murder if Ron Michaels pleads guilty. A Pivotal Moment One night Fleming surprises Ron by visiting him in jail. Without preamble, he hands over photographs from the crime scene, including one showing the victim lying in a huge pool of blood. “I laid the pictures down in front of him, and I sat back to see what he was going to do.” Fleming relates. “He reached down and picked up the pictures and he looked at them; all of a sudden he looked up at me with tears streaming down his face and all he had to say was, ‘They think I did that?’ Fleming marks this as the moment at which he was fully convinced of his client’s innocence. He was staggered by the responsibility of defending Michaels. “It’s one thing when you are representing somebody you know is guilty, even if they want to go to trial. But what the hell do you do when you’re representing somebody that you really believe is innocent and you start thinking, ‘Can I do this? Am I going to be good enough to get this guy

acquitted on this murder charge?’ You don’t sleep; you just don’t sleep. I had quit smoking, and I started smoking again big time,” he confesses. Without much funding, Fleming can only use experts sparingly. One expert reviews Dale Todd’s confession and declares it false, but points out that the defense can’t afford to bring him in to give testimony. Fleming also consults with Dan Davis, an expert forensic pathologist, who, upon review of the autopsy report, photographs and other documentation explains to him why Hammill’s basilar skull fracture doesn’t support the theory of homicide and why he favors the hit-and-run theory. “I said to him, ‘I’m a fairly good sized guy, are you telling me that I can’t take a baseball bat and step into it and snap my wrists at just the right time and hit this kid in the side of the head and fracture his skull?’” Fleming recounts his conversation with Davis. “He said, ‘You asked the wrong question, because the answer to that question, is yes, you can, but whatever fractured that skull had tremendous mass behind it. It was very heavy; it was moving really, really fast. The reason I know that is because that’s not a crush fracture. That skull was crushed so quickly that his head couldn’t get away from it and it literally torqued his skull to the point that it snapped through that basilar area. In order to do that, you have to have tremendous mass moving at tremendous speed. You couldn’t do that with a baseball bat. In addition, you would have more external tissue damage and more fracturing alongside the head, and you don’t have that. Whatever hit him, hit him fast, hit him hard, hit him dead and he bled out in a couple of minutes and he never knew what hit him.’ “I said, ‘Like a piece of farm equipment being towed behind a truck?’ And he said, ‘Precisely, with something sticking out the side. He’s along the road at 3 o’clock in the morning completely in black, with long black hair, so his face would not have been very visible, and you maybe have a tired farmer who’s trying to move a piece of equipment from one field to another,’” Fleming narrated. As he gathers evidence to refute the State’s charges, Fleming approaches the prosecutor to show why the case against Michaels should be dropped. Authorities re-interview Dale Todd repeatedly, “six times from 2003 through the day of trial. And every time that I came up with a discrepancy, his next story cleared it up,” Fleming relates. Eventually, the prosecution theorized that Michaels assaulted Hammill because he flirted with his fiancée at the party. (Continued next month)

COVID-19 Elevating Concerns About Food Safety and Security (NewsUSA) - The latest fallout from the coronavirus pandemic? Food safety and security now rank among consumers’ top global concerns. According to a new study from the Mars Global Food Safety Center, 73 percent of the adults surveyed last month in the United States, China and the United Kingdom said they believe COVID-19 will wind up adversely impacting the viability -- and, yes, safety -- of the global food supply chain many of us have come to expect. And almost as many (71 percent) think people’s access to food will consequently be negatively affected around the world. Doubt it? “New food safety threats, like those posed by COVID-19, are constantly emerging through a combination of factors including global warming, increased globalization of trade, and changes in agriculture practices and food production,” said David Crean, chief science officer at Mars, which strives to generate new scientific and technological insights to raise the bar on food safety.

The Anti-Federalist Papers: Brutus II

I

n 1787, an author writing under the pseudonym “Brutus” writes his second contribution to the anti-Federalist Papers. These papers argued against the new Constitution, then being considered for ratification by the states. Brutus notes the importance of the task facing Americans. After all, the Constitution under consideration is to govern not only this generation, but also “generations yet unborn.” Brutus begins with observations about the nature of civil government. No man has a “natural right” to authority over another. To the extent that “natural freedom” is to be yielded, it is because individuals choose to do so in order to form a new government. “But it is not necessary,” he adds, “that individuals should relinquish all their natural rights.” To the contrary, “[s]ome are of such a nature that they cannot be surrendered.” Brutus lists several examples, such as the “rights of conscience, [and] the right of enjoying and defending life, etc.” Given these principles, any Constitution should begin by “expressly reserving to the people such of their essential natural rights, as are not necessary to be parted with.” After all, rulers “have the same propensities as other men; they are as likely to use the power with which they are vested for private purposes, and to the injury and oppression of those over whom they are placed, as individuals in a state of nature are to injure and oppress one another.” Those who govern “have been found in all ages ever active to enlarge their powers and abridge the public liberty.” Brutus remains astonished that “this grand security, to the rights of the people, is not to be found in this constitution.” Why was no Bill of Rights proposed by the delegates to the Constitutional Convention?

limits, as in that of the state governments.” He runs down a list of several rights that he believes to be insecure in the new government, particularly certain rights during criminal prosecutions. Brutus is cynical about the reasons offered by the Founders for omitting a Bill of Rights. Why did they include provisions declaring that the writ of habeas corpus may not be suspended? Or that no bill of attainder may be passed? “If every thing which is not given is reserved, what propriety is there in these exceptions?” Brutus worries that the “only answer that can be given is, that these are implied in the general powers granted.” Thus, if we need protection against the abuse of one, we need protection for the others, too. Brutus ends on a very pessimistic note: “I cannot help suspecting, that persons who attempt to persuade people, that such reservations were less necessary under this constitution than under those of the states, are wilfully endeavouring to deceive, and to lead you into an absolute state of vassalage.”

You oughtn’t to yield to temptation. Well, somebody must, or the thing becomes absurd. Anthony Hope

ara Ross is a mother, wife, writer, and retired lawyer. She is the author of The Indispensable Electoral College: How the Founders’ Plan Saves Our Country from Mob Rule,Enlightened Democracy: The Case for the Electoral College, co-author of Under God: George Washington and the Question of Church and State (with Joseph C. Smith, Jr.), & We Elect A President: The Story of our Electoral College. She is a constitutionalist, but with a definite libertarian streak! Stay tuned here for updates on pretty much anything to do with the Electoral College, George Washington, & our wonderfully rich American heritage.

Brutus acknowledges the arguments that every power not given to the federal government is reserved. But he believes that reasoning to be unsound. “The powers, rights, and authority, granted to the general government by this constitution,” he concludes, “are as complete, with respect to every object to which they extend, as that of any state government . . . There is the same reason, therefore, that the exercise of power, in this case, should be restrained within proper

Too Big to Fail, Too Big to Succeed, and the Foolish Crusade to Break Up Big Tech by: Anne Bradley

D

uring the fallout of the 2007-08 global financial crisis came the notion that some firms are so large and important – regardless of their sometimes-reckless corporate decisions and faulty risk calculations – that they needed to be saved and kept intact by the federal government. Hence the phrase, “too big to fail.” In a turn of irony, the government is after big companies again, but today for a different reason: they are too big to succeed. The CEOs of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are facing antitrust allegations and scrutiny for their supposed market dominance. The four CEOs testified before Congress in July, and now Google is facing an antitrust lawsuit from the Department of Justice (DOJ). Federal officials may call for regulating the tech companies’ behavior, splitting them up into smaller companies, or perhaps both. Congress and the DOJ are not their only political adversaries either, as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and many state attorneys general also are expected to bring investigations. The question is: to what end? We all understand the problematic nature of monopolies, which is Economics 101. Monopolies have a greater ability to either control the quantity offered, raise the price, or both. Economists don’t like monopolies because we expect them to result in less innovation and restricted access. The lessons of economics show us that economies are naturally organic, rather than designed. There is nothing new about antitrust legislation – hauling the big tech companies in front of Congress is not surprising. But what we fail to remember, or perhaps we never learned in the first place, is that these government decisions to “protect” consumers from so-called “monopolies” are unlikely to result in a more competitive marketplace. The decision to regulate or break up big tech firms will be arbitrary, as all government decisions are. Regulation in this sense faces the same problems central economic planning does: chief among them, the mistaken assumption that somehow, bureaucrats know what size firms should be, or that they even know how to make markets more competitive through legislation.

place will stifle innovation and raise costs. The heightened costs of doing business will, of course, be passed on to consumers. And this will hurt those in the lowest income quintile the most. Another lesson of unintended consequences is that however well-meaning our intentions, we often hurt the very people we seek to protect through this type of legislation. And Big Tech won’t go down without a fight, so you can expect that they will put every ounce of political and lobbying power to use these regulatory interventions to benefit themselves. Surely, their (and our) time would be better spent in other ways. We should always be worried about power dynamics. That’s true in every man-made institution, because we humans love power where and when we can get it. But this recognition should open our eyes to see that power is not just a potential problem in business, but also in the halls of Congress, in our churches, and even in our non-profits. As such, we need to seek institutional environments which curb that power. Think about it: the bureaucrat at the FTC has much more power than Jeff Bezos does. Why? You don’t have to shop on Amazon; you have many alternatives, which helps keep entrepreneurs in check. It’s not that Amazon or Google don’t each have a desire to increase their power, it’s that they have no natural course to obtain it. Economic profit does not equal coercive power. But political institutions are an entirely different matter— they have the power of coercion, and as such, we should be far more worried about how they will use it.

In fact, we should be less worried about how big firms are and far more worried about the political alliances that CEOs desire to make with lawmakers; that is corporate cronyism, and it creates winners and losers. Big is not inherently bad, and in some cases big is better because it affords supply-chain efficiency and allows those big tech giants to pass along lower costs to us. “Too big to fail” was a mistake because it bailed out incompetent firms during the global financial crisis. Breaking up big firms today would also be a mistake and would lead to higher prices, less innovation, and more cronyism. Innovation through entrepreneurship is the wellspring of economic growth and individual prosperity in this country. Let’s protect that by letting the market work.

Issues to Consider When Facing Alzheimer’s Disease By: Stella Knight ovember has been designated as National Alzheimer’s Month. I recently read an interesting article about Alzheimer’s disease and how it is affecting individuals in their early to mid-fifties. People often associate Alzheimer’s disease with an older population – usually in their seventies or eighties. As that article pointed out, there are unique concerns facing younger individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. In my estate planning/elder law practice, I have seen firsthand the issues affecting both the individual and his/ her family. First, Alzheimer’s is a progressive dementia, with a gradual onset of symptoms. In the early stages, family members may notice their loved ones becoming increasingly forgetful, easily distracted, and confused. As the individual’s memory becomes more impaired, her problem-solving capabilities decline and it is increasingly difficult to manage the activities of daily living such as feeding, bathing, and generally caring for oneself.

N

Because the individual realizes that her decision-making capacity is declining, it is very important for her to make decisions regarding her finances and health care while she is competent. As time passes, it will become more difficult or even impossible for her to make these important decisions. What decisions should be made? 1. Has a durable power of attorney been executed? This is an instrument giving another person - whether a family member or friend - full authority to act on the individual’s behalf should she become unable to manage her financial affairs in the future. 2. Has a health care power of attorney been discussed? This is the legal document that names an agent and authorizes him or her to make health care decisions for the individual when she is unable to make them for herself. This is not a living will, but an entirely different document. 3. Is a living will necessary? This is the document

wherein the individual makes her desires known to her family and friends that she does not want to be kept alive by artificial means or extraordinary means when her condition is determined to be terminal and incurable, or she is diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state. Younger individuals with minor children may need to consider additional questions such as: 1. Have you executed a will naming a loving guardian whose philosophy about raising children is consistent with yours? 2. Have you named a minor child as the beneficiary of your estate? If you name a minor as the beneficiary of your estate, your child will inherit outright. The problem is that minors cannot own an estate. An effective solution is to leave the estate in trust with a family member, attorney, or bank as trustee. If the individual is willing, she may benefit from additional discussions including: 1. Will a change of residence be necessary in the future? It is common for an affected individual to move to another state to live with adult children. 2. Home care instructions. Do you want to remain in your home, move in with children, or enter a continuing care facility? 3. Finally, many older individuals recognize that there may be a need for nursing home care. This is an opportunity to open discussions with children regarding payment of nursing home expenses and whether Medicaid will be a viable option for the individual. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but merely a starting point for individuals and their families. It is extremely important that an individual be part of the decision-making process while he or she is still able. The information contained in this column is of a general nature and does not constitute legal advice.

Northeast North Carolina Family History - DO YOU HAVE PICTURES OF CURRITUCK’S MARITIME?? By: Irene Hampton - nencfamilyhistory@gmail.com

A

new boat museum is nearing completion on the Outer Banks of Currituck in Corolla Park. The building will be finished by the end of the year and the exhibits will go in after that with an anticipated opening in the spring of 2021. Historic pictures relating to Currituck’s hunt clubs or water activities are still being requested. The only exception is the Dew’s Island Club which there are plenty of. The Facebook page for the museum states the following: “The Maritime Museum will house historic boats, artifacts and displays that will tell the importance of boats in our community and stories of people who made a life and a living on the waterways of Currituck County.”

crashed it into a Coast Guard boat that was docked at a pier in the Coinjock canal. He broke a number of ribs in that crash. I also found out O.D. did some crabbing and guiding. His daughter Judy stated that “Many a blue peet was eaten in our house.” I did learn from my conversation that Sam had built two boats himself on O.D.’s property on the Coinjock canal. He said he bought the juniper wood in Newland from Mr. White’s mill and Marcus Griggs planed them for him. It was a 16 foot hunting skiff that he wasn’t happy with as it didn’t tow well behind other boats. “The Heritage of Currituck County, 1670-1985” contains a few articles about boat building and hunting in Currituck. In article # 31 pp. 27-30, Elijah Tate recalls boat-building in Currituck. He describes many boat builders and I will include about Pat O’Neal as an example. “He had a boat shop here on the canal bank that was the gathering place for old and young. His family was his first love and boats came next. You could find him just about every day in the week in his shop--in the summertime the children of the neighborhood used the boatbasin for a swimming hole and the bank for hot-dog roasts… There was always something going on down at Pat’s shop… He built many boats of 25 ft. and he built one for his own use that was 35 ft. I never heard a complaint about any of Pat’s work. He was a good carpenter, a good citizen and a good friend.”

Working on the water has long been an important facet of life in our region. Recent conversations with family members was a reminder about some boat stories and the discovery of a new one. My husband’s grandfather was Osborne David Hampton and went by O.D. Hampton. He enjoyed racing cars and boats. A recent conversation with his son-in-law, Sam, brought out the fact that O.D. had bought his racing boats in Sandusky, Ohio and hired Roy Etheridge to race his first one. Boats were raced in Dowdy Bay near Walnut Island. He drove the second one himself and according to family stories he

In this article Elijah Tate also recounts that Bob Morse built hunting and fishing boats with hand tools from 19121960. Morse also built a 26 ft. light-weight racing boat for Henry Hampton, Sr. I really hadn’t realised how much boat racing went on in Currituck! Many columns ago I did promise to include the picture of O.D. Hampton as a boy from an article in a 1906 National Geographic. I did find it so I will include it. If you have Currituck water related pictures you would like to be considered for the maritime museum contact Jill.landen@currituckcountync.gov. Thanks in advance and Happy Thanksgiving.

Y

ou may have heard that timing is everything. And in many walks of life, that may be true – but not necessarily when it comes to investing. To understand why this is so, let’s look at three common mistakes investors make:

• Selling investments and moving to cash when stocks are predicted to drop – If you follow the financial news on cable TV or the internet, you’re eventually bound to discover some “experts” who are predicting imminent, huge drops in the stock market. And on rare occasions, they may be right – but often they’re not. And if you were to sell some of your stocks or stock-based investments based on a prediction and move the money to cash or a cash equivalent, you could miss out on possible future growth opportunities if the predictor was wrong. And the investments you sold still could have played a valuable part in your portfolio balance. • Selling underperforming assets in favor of strong performers – As an investor, it can be tempting to unload an investment for one of those “hot” ones you read about that may have topped one list or another. Yet there’s no guarantee that investment will stay on top the next year, or even perform particularly well. Conversely, your own underperformers of today could be next year’s leaders. • Waiting for today’s risk or uncertainty to disappear before investing – Investing always involves risk and uncertainty. Instead of waiting for the perfect time to invest, you’re better off building a portfolio based on your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon.

All these mistakes are examples of a risky investment strategy: trying to “time” the market. If you try to be a market timer, not only will you end up questioning your buy/sell decisions, but you also might lose sight of why you bought certain investments in the first place. Specifically, you might own stocks or mutual funds because they are appropriate for your portfolio and your risk tolerance, and they can help you make progress toward your long-term financial goals. And these attributes don’t automatically disappear when the value of these stocks or funds has dropped, so you could end up selling investments that could still be doing you some good many years into the future.

New Life of Currituck

I

Life, Love, and Jesus

by Pastor Dan Bergey

never thought I would be saying these words so strongly: Wake up, Church!

When I was young, I preferred to drown the world out by pulling a welding helmet over my face and fusing two pieces of metal together. I would rather take a piece of metal and a hammer and, over the sound of the air compressor, form something that is useful. But when Jesus Christ came into my life, those things that used to bring “comfort” from the world had to be moved down the list of things to accomplish, and Jesus put me in a place that I had to stand up and speak for Him, attempting to follow the paths that Godly men before me have traveled. So, Church, wake up! I say that with every fiber of my being. The prophet Jeremiah was told to speak these words: Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jeremiah 6:16

voice with tones of hate and division. It is also full of passion that gives faith and fullness of life to see what is around you and respond in a way that points to the boundary of God with the freedom to move along ancient paths traveled before us. Does your life match your words? Do your words match your life? I pray your life for Christ is so loud, few words are needed, but if you do have to use your words, may they direct others to walk down the ancient paths of peace set before us by God and visibly seen by those who traveled before us. May “God be gracious to you and bless you and cause His face to shine upon you.” Psalm 67:1

53rjbd@gmail.com

The author was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, December 12, 1953. Moved to New York at the age of five, and became a U.S. citizen at the age of eleven. Graduated from George Washington High School in New York City. In 1972, I enlisted in the U S Navy and was discharged in 1975. I was a merchant seaman from 1982 through 1988. In between I dug ditches, washed dishes, sold used cars, and even drove a cab. I graduated from Elizabeth City State University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. I was a Motor Fuels Tax Auditor for the State of North Carolina, an IT Control Specialist for Gateway Bank/Bank of Hampton Roads and retired at the end of 2015.

Did you notice the promise when the boundary is our guide for living our life? It says that within the boundary, there is a good way to walk and, in that way, there is peace. Yes, peace. Not turmoil or anger in hopes of changing legislation but, instead, allowing the Holy Spirit to change hearts and minds. The Apostle Paul refers to this same thought in his letter to the Church of Colossae when he wrote: “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Wake up, Church! The Bible is a clear path which is also full of compassion for us when we are in need of strength and courage in a world that wants to drown our

Life, love, and Jesus, nobody else Is the way that I want, all of my life He’ll never leave me, from me depart And He’s always been there, for me Right from the start, He’s been in my life Standing beside me all of the time Warding off evil and all its companions No matter how hard, and no matter how often They press their attack; He’ll fend them off Life, love, and Jesus, nobody else

This article is an excerpt from a sermon that was preached at new life of currituck November 1st of 2020.

While it may seem simple to change the names of sports teams, tear down statues, and change the names of schools, roads, and buildings, it can also be quite complicated. There is a rich history, places from which we came, roads God has taken us down, that are important to remember. And with the kindest voice I can, I say to you: Your faith is at stake as well. We have moved the boundaries that God has put in place, maybe for the sake of inclusion, even greater maybe for the sake of making it easier to live life the way we want to. But by moving the boundaries that God put in place, we are trying to change people instead of the Holy Spirit working God’s transformational power in our lives.

While I do not remember a lot of the words of my great-grandfather’s last sermon, I do remember the passion with which he shared God’s Word. It was not about him or his legacy but rather about the passion with which he lived his life as an example before God and others. That might have even been the reason for me to hide behind the welding mask or the hammer. While I still enjoy those things, they do not allow me the freedom that is afforded me through Jesus Christ to speak to others by my words and, prayerfully, by my life. The writer of Proverbs says, “Do not move the ancient boundary which your fathers have set.”

Habitat for Humanity

by Jane Elfring

E

lizabeth City Habitat for Humanity is one of the rare affiliates in the United States that is classified as “all-volunteer.” That means we are always looking for more people to help. Most of our volunteers are in what we refer to as the “Medicare” generation and we need younger people to take up the roles necessary to run this affiliate. Many of the tasks require very little time but are necessary. Here are just a few of the jobs that we need help with: Board member-we meet once a month. Current openings include supervisor of our store, grant writer, and social media and publicity coordinator. We are looking for people with financial expertise and fundraising experience. Family services-we need people to evaluate applications as they come in and determine their eligibility. This includes being available to do home visits once or twice a year After closing coordinator-we need someone who will keep in touch with our homeowners after closing. This includes additional homeowner education to help them keep their homes well-maintained Building-Our building committee is wonderful but needs some “young blood “ to help with construction Lunch coordinator-we need someone to contact businesses and local churches to provide lunches for our build site volunteers. We have a list of previous donors. This requires several hours per week while a build is underway. People to write thank you notes-we need volunteers to write thank you notes to our donors. The time commitment varies but generally no more than one hour per month. In addition to helping with these tasks, we always need financial support. In addition to donations

from contractors, we generally have to have at least $60,000 to begin a build. There are several ways people can help support our mission to build simple, decent, affordable housing for qualified buyers: Car donations-the Habitat Cars for Homes project helps us raise funds for construction. To donate a car, contact Norma James at Taylor Mueller Realty, 440 S. Hughes Blvd., 331-2233. She will need the title at the time of donation. If the car doesn’t run, you can also donate by calling 877-277-4344 for towing. We will receive money once the vehicle is sold. Shaklee products-If you like Shaklee health, beauty and cleaning products, you can purchase them through our website and help us raise funds. Our Shaklee site is pws.shaklee.com/elizabethcityhabitatforhumanity Payroll donation-Many employers will allow employees to designate charities. The money is automatically deducted each month and send to us. T-shirts-We sell t-shirts with our logo in our store for $10. If you have any questions, contact Jane Elfring, 252384-0115 for further information.

PRESENTISM (Paid Advertisment)

I

n literary and historical analysis, presentism is the introduction of modern ideas and perspectives into depictions or interpretations of the past.

Sons of Confederate Veterans We meet at Vickie’s Villa in Elizabeth City the 4th Tuesday every month at 7pm

This word defines exactly what is going on in America today and is the cause of historical revisionist vilifying American heroes as we once knew them to be. It is the basis for Marxist movements and bad ideas such as the 1619 project. It is this misguided narrative that is the motivating factor for people to destroy historic works of art that were intended to be an object of remembrance for future generations. Presentism is also what the Pasquotank County Commissioners have done in their vote to remove the historic Confederate Memorial dedicated 109 years ago. They want to judge and condemn the heroes of history with a modern point of view. For even great men, like Martin Luther King, spoke out against homosexuality and those words today would be considered intolerance and hate, but are we to judge him by our modern perspective ? or accept that he was a great man, and a man of his time, with an understanding of the world, based only upon his lifetime. IF these men of the past, were given the opportunity to live into our modern day, it is likely, that their views would have evolved to ours. Let us not erase history nor hide an object of remembrance that may otherwise pro-

3 surprising foods that fuel your immune system (BPT) - Cold and flu season, combined with an ongoing pandemic, is motivating many Americans to do everything possible to support immune health. Fortunately, simple lifestyle habits, like a healthy diet, can make a big difference in strengthening the body’s defense system. But what foods are best - and why? When it comes to immune-boosting foods, most people immediately turn to orange juice for a quick fix of vitamin C. “While it is true that citrus fruit helps support the immune system, there are many other foods that offer an impressive profile of nutrients believed to maintain strong immunity,” says registered dietitian Sheri Kasper. Here are three surprising, dietitian-recommended foods that can help ward off illness this cold and flu season. 1. Farmed salmon Farmed salmon offers outstanding nutrition that can help protect against everything from heart disease to depression. Specifically, farmed salmon supports the immune system thanks to two key nutrients that are uncommon in many other foods: vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids. While vitamin D is often connected to bone health, emerging research out of Boston University suggests that it may also be vital to proper immune function. Few foods are naturally high in vitamin D, but a serving of farmed salmon offers nearly one-third of daily recommended needs. Omega-3 fatty acids, abundantly found in farmed salmon, are highly anti-inflammatory and support the immune system by reducing chronic inflammation. Kasper recommends choosing farmed salmon from Chile because it is sustainably raised, high in omega-3 fats and does not contain antibiotics or mercury. 2. Yogurt Yogurt and other fermented foods contain healthy bacteria called probiotics. Probiotics are well-known

for supporting digestive or “gut” health by preventing overgrowth of bad bacteria. But maintaining a healthy balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut is also believed to boost the immune system. “Most people do not realize that about 70 percent of your body’s immune system is in your gut,” says Kasper. In addition to containing probiotics, yogurt is also one of the few foods that is almost always fortified with vitamin D, which offers additional immune support. Look for yogurt labeled as containing “Live and Active Cultures” and steer clear of yogurt that contains a lot of added sugar. Try plain yogurt and sweeten by adding fresh fruit and a small drizzle of honey. 3. Red bell peppers Red bell peppers are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that support the immune system. One example is vitamin C, which encourages the production of the white blood cells that are responsible for defending the body against pathogens. Red bell peppers contain almost three times more vitamin C than oranges. They are also loaded with vitamin A and the antioxidant beta-carotene, which can be converted to vitamin A in the body, when needed. Vitamin A is important in maintaining the natural mucus barriers located in the eyes, gut and other parts of the body. These barriers are designed to trap bacteria and are essential to optimal immunity. Be sure to choose red peppers because they have significantly more vitamin A, vitamin C and beta-carotene compared to green bell peppers. While a healthy diet cannot prevent seasonal colds, the flu or other viral illnesses, a combination of the right foods, plenty of sleep, regular exercise and a balanced lifestyle will arm your body’s defenses and may help minimize the length and severity of illness.

How to shop and make money online during a pandemic (BPT) - Canceled plans. Working from home. Financial stress. It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic is causing massive disruptions in many lives. Each day, people are getting more and more creative in discovering ways to stay productive and hold on to a sense of normalcy. Online marketplaces have seen a major increase in activity over the last six months as some scramble to outfit their home office or home gym with the necessities - while others are cleaning the house and selling things they don’t use. Some are even supplementing their income by selling popular at-home items. Whether you’re offering a bargain or hunting for one, here are the tips you need to be successful by selling things online. Sell what people are looking for As items sell out on online stores, there’s an opportunity to make money by selling rare items locally. Home office items like desks and office supplies, including printers, tablets and webcams, are selling at higher prices than normal. Kids supplies like backpacks and laptops are also commanding higher interest. You can search for your item online to see what popular prices are before you sell it to maximize your profit. Establish credibility

Whether you’re buying or selling, there are few ways to make yourself stand out as credible. On the OfferUp & letgo marketplace, potential buyers and sellers can click on your profile to view your ratings, profile badges and response rates. The more complete your profile, the more trustworthy your account appears. If you’re new, it may take some time to build up your reputation. Beware of super-low prices Watch out for potential red flags if you’re buying. If a price seems too good to be true - such as a $20 diamond ring or a $100 brand-new phone - it likely is. Before you make an offer or commit to buying, check prices of similar items and make sure you’re able to see several photos of the item.

Meet in a public location If a meet-up is necessary, opt for a well-lit public location with video surveillance - and remember to keep a safe, social distance. OfferUp has created more than 2,000 public community meet-up spots so everyone involved in the transaction can feel safe and know exactly where to meet. Simply search on www.safetradespots.com for a mutual location that works for you. Online marketplaces can be a valuable resource for procuring your buying and selling needs - and helping others find theirs. Download the OfferUp app for more tips on being a successful buyer or seller.

Check shipping before you buy Stay safe during the pandemic by choosing to ship your bought or sold items. OfferUp & letgo offers every buyer and seller access to nationwide shipping. When buyers see an item they like, they can choose to receive the item by mail, make their offer and pay through the app. Sellers receive a pre-paid shipping label and both parties can track the shipping process

Oscar Emmanuel Peterson Canadian Jazz Pianist

O

scar Peterson was born August 15, 1925 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and died December 23. 2007 (aged 82) in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. He was a Canadian jazz pianist, virtuoso, and composer. He was called the “Maharaja of the keyboard” by Duke Ellington, simply “O. P.” by his friends, and informally in the jazz community as “the King of inside swing”. He released over 200 recordings, won eight Grammy Awards, and received numerous other awards and honors. Peterson was born in Montreal, Quebec, to immigrants from the West Indies; his father worked as a porter for the Canadian Pacific Railroad. He grew up in the neighborhood of Little Burgundy in Montreal, which was a predominately Black neighborhood, where he encountered the jazz culture. At the age of five, Peterson began honing his skills on trumpet and piano, but a bout of tuberculosis when he was seven prevented him from playing trumpet again, so he directed all his attention to the piano. His father, Daniel Peterson, an amateur trumpeter, and pianist, was one of his first music teachers, and his sister Daisy taught him classical piano. Peterson was persistent at practicing scales and classical etudes. At the age of nine Peterson played the piano with so much control that it impressed professional musicians. For many years, his piano studies included four to six hours of daily practice. Only in his later years did he decrease his practice to one or two hours daily.

so impressed that he told the driver to take him to the club so he could meet the pianist. In 1949 he introduced Peterson in New York City at a ‘jazz at the Philharmonic’ concert at Carnegie Hall. He remained Peterson’s manager for most of his career. This was more than a managerial relationship; Peterson praised Granz for standing up for him and other Black jazz musicians in the segregationist south in the 1950s and 1960s. In the documentary video Music in the Key of Oscar, Peterson tells how Granz stood up to a gun-toting southern policeman who wanted to stop the trio from using “Whites-only” taxis. Peterson had arthritis since his youth, and in later years he had trouble buttoning his shirt. Never slender, his weight increased to 276 lb., hindering his mobility. He had hip replacement surgery in the early 1990s. In 1993 a stroke weakened his left side and removed him from work for two years. Although he recovered some dexterity in his left hand, his piano playing was diminished, and his style had relied principally on his right hand. His friend, Canadian politician, and amateur pianist Bob Rae, said, “a one-handed Oscar was better than just about anyone with two hands.” In 2007 his health declined. He canceled his plans to perform at the Toronto Jazz Festival and a Carnegie Hall all-star concert that was to be given in his honor. Peterson died on December 23, 2007 of kidney failure at his home in Mississauga, Ontario.

Robert is retired from the Air Force and currently is a freelance writer and Short Wave Radio enthusiast. He also loves to channel and play Sudoku.

ovember is diabetic eye disease month. Did you know people with diabetes are more likely to develop blinding eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataracts? Yet recent studies have revealed low awareness of the issue among ethnicities at higher risk for diabetes. With the findings signaling that many Americans may not be defending themselves against diabetes-related vision loss, the American Academy of Ophthalmology encourages those with diabetes to take proactive steps to protect their vision. Besides blurry vision, you may also experience spots or floaters, or have trouble with night vision. You might also have blurry vision if you’re developing cataracts. People with diabetes tend to develop cataracts at a younger age than other adults. Cataracts cause the lens of your eyes to become cloudy. Diabetes damages blood vessels all over the body. The damage to your eyes starts when sugar blocks the tiny blood vessels that go to your retina, causing them to leak fluid or bleed. To make up for these blocked blood vessels, your eyes then grow new blood vessels that don’t work well. Should you have changes in your vision, call us today at 1-800-755-7535 or email us at Marketing@ AECPEC.com.
