Kerr Lake: community defined by diversity Kathy Solomon’s subdivision neighborhood near Kerr Lake is a tiny microcosm of the lake community. Her neighbor across the street relocated from Austin, Texas, to take a position as a physician at a local hospital. Other neighbors at the end of the street came to the area from Wisconsin to retire and be nearer family. The neighbors next door are from Virginia and have been visiting the North Carolina and Virginia portions of the lake all their lives. Each has a different reason for why they’ve made their home at Kerr Lake, but they’re all part of a diverse community of people who have been drawn by Vance County’s biggest attraction. Kathy, her husband Bruce, their two sons, Ben and Nathan, and her mother, Virginia Phipps, relocated to the Pine Shore Estates subdivision near Kerr Lake in 2007. They had lived in the suburbs of Annapolis, Md., where she was employed with the federal government and her husband had a state government job. But the work was stressful and they were both ready for a change. “We had some friends from our church who had moved to the (Kerr Lake) area. They planted the seed about living on the lake,” Kathy said. Bruce is an avid fisherman but had never lived where he had easy access to the water. “We didn’t live that far from the water in Maryland, but my hus-

Bruce Solomon has loved the fishing opportunities his new life offers. He and his family moved to Kerr Lake from Maryland in 2007. band didn’t have anywhere to get easy access to the water. He would go fishing with friends who lived on the water or he’d go boating and fishing with his dad up in Pennsylvania. But he was always dependent on someone else if he wanted to fish.” So the Solomons decided to retire from their jobs and head for the lake.

While they had planned to downsize their home with the move, the couple actually ended up with a larger home when they decided to add a full basement. “Our home in Maryland was a two-story Colonial style. When we moved here, we wanted a ranch style home on one level so it would be handicap accessible and easy for

us to get around in as we get older,” said Kathy. Bruce has loved the fishing opportunities his new life offers. “He can get on the golf cart, go down to the lake, and fish or go out on his pontoon boat for as long as he wants,” Kathy said. Kathy’s sister, Jena Miller, and her husband Tibby, live right behind the

Solomons. The two sisters and their mother are active volunteers with E.O. Young Elementary School in Middleburg. The family is also active in Middleburg Baptist Church where they are members. Kathy also joined a local quilting group and participates in reading programs at the H. Leslie Perry Memorial Library in Henderson.

While they love the peace and quiet of the countryside near the lake, they do wish the “diversity in amenities” that a larger urban area offers were a bit closer at hand, including more shopping and dining options, Kathy said. “But you can’t have it all. We love being here and enjoying all the lake has to offer.”

There couldn’t be a better time to purchase a home on Kerr Lake For buyers interested in living or vacationing near Kerr Lake, there’s never been a better time to purchase a primary home or vacation home, according to local real estate agents. “There is a large inventory of both homes and lots on Kerr Lake at this time, and the prices remain below normal market value,” said Gayla Strickland with Coldwell Banker Advantage in Henderson. “This gives buyers a wide choice of properties and more for their money. Lake homes and lake lots are good investments.” Presently, there are over 130 lake homes listed in the Triangle Multiple Listing Service, with prices ranging

from $49,900 to $1.5 million, said Strickland. There are also 217 lots priced from $13,000 to $324,000, in addition to 12 tracts of land over 5 acres. David Frazier with REMAX Perspective, which has offices in Henderson, Oxford and Clarksville, Va., agrees. His offices represent lake properties on both the North Carolina and Virginia sides of the lake. “In the depressed economy and real estate market that we’re experiencing right now, buyers who can afford to purchase a home or lot at the lake have a number of different options to explore. We have everything from maintenance free townhomes at the Clarksville

Frazco Realty

marina to waterfront and lake-access properties in a variety of different types of neighborhoods.” Buyers who come to look at Kerr Lake properties have a wide variety of interests, said Strickland. “Some buyers are just interested in a small vacation cottage to get away to on weekends, but they’re not interested in living at the lake year round,” said Strickland. “I have more and more people telling me they want to vacation closer to home so they can get away more frequently. They don’t want to make a two- to four-hour drive to the beach.” Many year-round lake please see LAKe HOMeS, pAGe 5

Black bears becoming a more common sight With a rash of media reports of bear sightings across North Carolina, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is reminding residents not to panic, keep their distance and remain calm if they see a black bear. It is not uncommon to see a black bear in North Carolina as they look for mates, a home or food. Juvenile bears typically disperse from their home areas during the spring time, while adult bears can roam extensively searching for food. Residents are urged not to approach or follow bears, and to use caution when driving in areas where bears have been sighted. The commission is cautioning people to take care not to feed bears that wander into yards, parks,

onto sidewalks or into other residential areas. Feeding a bear rewards it for coming near people and their homes and increases the likelihood that the bear will approach again. While black bears are rarely aggressive toward people, they can become bold when they grow accustomed to feeding on human-provided foods, such as pet foods, garbage and bird seed. When this happens, black bears can lose their fear of humans. Contrary to popular belief, commission employees do not trap and relocate nuisance bears for the following reasons: • Most conflicts do not warrant trapping. For example, a bear simply wandering into a suburban area

is not necessarily a safety issue. Bears can move long distances during dispersal, and it’s likely the animal will move on if left alone. • The process of trapping and relocating bears is difficult, and can be more dangerous for the bear, the public, and those involved than letting the bear take its natural course. Bears are more likely to injure themselves, or threaten humans, during the course of trapping and relocation. • Simply catching every bear that someone sees is not an option; there are few remote areas of the state remaining in which to relocate bears where they will not come into contact with humans. • Relocated bears often

return to the place they were originally captured. • In many cases, food attractants are the source of the problem. The best long-term solution involves removal of attractants (bird feeders, unsecured garbage) rather than removal of the bear. • Trapping and relocating bears attracted by food would simply move the problem, rather than solve it. The solution is to modify your habits and prevent bears from being attracted to your home. If a bear’s behavior is escalating to bold and threatening behavior towards people, commission staff will euthanize the bear. The following are examples of threatening behavior:

• The bear charges towards a person. This often occurs when people have cornered the bear or have placed themselves too close to the bear. • The bear approaches a person directly, despite efforts to harass it away. • The bear follows a person, despite efforts to harass it away. Examples of bear behavior that is not threatening includes: • Simply being in a neighborhood. • Standing on its legs. If a bear stands on its hind legs, it is attempting to see or smell. • Vocalizations. If a bear feels threatened or stressed, it will start to vocalize, in the form of huffs, snorts,

blowing, moans, and the popping of its jaw (a chomping sound). If a bear exhibits these behaviors, people should back away from the bear. Through visuals and sounds, the bear is telling you it is feeling threatened and you are too close. Residents can avoid problems by: • Securing bags of trash inside cans stored in a garage, basement or other secure area, and placing the cans outside, as late as possible, on trash pick-up days – not the night before. • Purchasing bear-proof garbage cans or bear proofing your existing garbage container with a secure latching system. please see BeARS, pAGe 5

LAKE HOMES,

• Discontinuing the feeding of wild birds during spring and summer, even with feeders advertised as “bear-proof.” Bears are still attracted to seed that spills on the ground. • Avoiding “free feeding” pets outdoors. If you must feed pets outdoors, make sure all food is consumed and empty bowls are removed. • Cleaning all food and grease from barbecue grills after each use. Bears are attracted to food odors and may investigate. For more information and more tips on black bears in North Carolina, read “Preventing and Resolving Black Bear Conflicts” at www. ncwildlife.org.

residents are doctors and professionals who commute to jobs either locally or in Research Triangle Park, Strickland said. Retirees who have moved to the lake to enjoy fishing, boating and other recreational activities also make up a large segment of the lake community. Frazier said most of his real estate clients interested in lake property come from outside the local area as well. But he’s also worked with customers who grew up in the area but left to pursue education and career goals elsewhere. “They’re now at a point that they want to move back closer to family and enjoy living near the lake.” For those in the market for a second vacation home, Frazier also feels that Kerr Lake wins out over a long drive to the beach for many Triangle and southside Virginia residents. “It’s easier to incorporate a short getaway at the lake into a busy weekend.” Regardless of why they come, life at the lake has perks that everyone can enjoy, Strickland said. “I see so much wildlife every time I’m out there. It’s just a great place for people to go and relax.”

Know boating laws and regulations before leaving the shore Wildlife officers with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission are reminding everyone to comply with the state’s boating safety laws this summer. Wildlife officers are charged with enforcing the boating laws and regulations on the waters of North Carolina, and may stop any vessel for safety checks or violations. In the course of their duties, these law enforcement officers patrol over 5,000 square miles of inland streams, rivers, lakes and coastal waterways, and 220 public boating access areas.

Boats and alcohol North Carolina sets the same limit for intoxication while operating a boat as for a motor vehicle, with a .08 blood alcohol level. The law

Both boat operators and passengers who drink should use caution. “We can’t stress enough the importance of safe and sober operation of motor vehicles and boats, since nearly one in every three deaths – car or boat – is alcohol related,” said Maj. Chris Huebner, the state boating safety coordinator.

Chris Huebner, the state boating safety coordinator. Both boat operators and passengers who drink should use caution.

by a motor of 10 horsepower or greater on a public waterway must meet boating safety education requirements. The requirements, set by General Statute 75A-16.2 were created by the General Assembly and became effective in May 2010. “Recreational boaters must enroll in a National Association of State Boating Law Administratorsapproved course and pass a standardized test before taking the helm, or otherwise be in compliance with the law,” said Maj. Huebner. “The Wildlife Resources Commission provides these courses free throughout the state. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, U.S. Power Squadron and other organizations, including online providers, also offer approved courses

Pre-launch inspection “Preparation before launching is essential,” said Huebner. “Inspect your vessel for ‘ship-shape’ operation, make sure you have all of the required safety equipment and that it’s in good condition, file a float plan and be alert once underway.” A float plan provides important information should a problem occur. Complete a form, available online at Float Plan, before going boating, and leave it with a reliable person who can be depended upon to notify the

Life vests Children younger than 13 must wear an appropriate, U.S. Coast Guard approved life vest whenever they are on a recreational vessel that is underway. The life vest must be a proper fit, with youth sizes corresponding to weight ranges. Both state and federal regulations require that a Type I, II or III personal flotation device in good condition and of appropriate size be accessible for each person onboard a recreational vessel, including canoes, kayaks, rowboats and other nonmotorized craft. Sailboards, racing shells, rowing sculls, racing canoes and racing kayaks are exempt from requirements.

You can help the state’s wildlife during tax season By checking line No. 30 on their tax forms and donating a portion of their tax refunds, North Carolina citizens can help conserve the state’s wildlife and their habitats, whether they love to hunt, fish, photograph wildlife, or watch birds in their own backyards. Songbirds, fish, bats, salamanders, frogs and turtles all benefit from tax check-off donations to the Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Fund. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission uses Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Fund donations to support the research, conservation and manage-

ment of animals that are not hunted and fished. Because non-game projects are not funded through state tax money, check-off donations provide the largest and most significant source of funding for these projects. Additionally, every dollar in tax donations given to the fund, is matched with federal and other grants, so donated dollars actually count twice. A few of the projects supported by tax check-off donations include: • Monitoring the status of songbird populations across the state through bird-banding efforts (video) that provide information about bird produc-

tivity and survival. • Conducting a coast-wide colonial waterbird census to assess population trends for herons, egrets, terns and other coast birds. • Monitoring bat populations as the deadly whitenose syndrome continues to spread across western North Carolina. • Restoring fish and mussel species to the Pigeon and Cheoah rivers. • Surveying for rare fish in the Pee Dee River. “North Carolina has one of the highest diversities of aquatic non-game species, such as crayfish, fish and freshwater mussels in North America,” said Todd Ewing,

aquatic diversity supervisor for the commission. “Because of donations to the Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Fund, we are able to conduct projects that protect these species and conserve this unique part of North Carolina’s natural heritage.” Online tax preparation software, such as TurboTax, does not have numbered lines so e-filers will be asked if they would like to make a donation to the Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Fund. Other tax filers can also tell their tax preparer they would like to donate. Tax season isn’t the only time or way to contribute to wildlife conservation.

Area July 4th holiday celebrations planned The annual Kerr Lake fireworks display and July 4th holiday celebration will be held Saturday from 6:30-10 p.m. Musical entertainment will be provided by Eric & Laurie and the Hicksboro Station Band. Food vendors will be on hand and T-shirts and glow sticks will be for sale. A free shuttle service will be offered from the Roses store parking lot on Norlina Road to Satterwhite Point from 4-7:30 p.m. Return shuttle service will begin at 10 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Vance County Department of Tourism. The Cokesbury Volunteer Fire Department will also hold a Fourth of July Celebration will be held Sunday with gates opening at 6 p.m. Fireworks will start at approximately 9 p.m. Novelty items for the kids will be available including glow necklaces, bracelets, and sparklers. Refreshments will be available. The town of Wise in Warren County will also hold its annual July 4th activities Saturday beginning with the annual parade at 10 a.m.

Also, as a young animal grows, it can become aggressive. While feeding wildlife may seem harmless or even helpful, it can cause an animal to lose its natural fear of humans and seek more human food.

roundworm, to humans. Rabid animals, including raccoons, bats and foxes, are not uncommon in North Carolina. From January to March, a total of 83 rabid animals were identified in 43 North Carolina counties. During the same time period in 2010, the Division of Public Health reported that 74 rabid animals were identified from 41 North Carolina counties. Raccoons accounted for more than half of the cases. In Wake County last year, a group of neighborhood children were exposed to rabies after they found an injured bat on the ground and played with it. The bat later tested positive for rabies. In Haywood County, more than 40 people received rabies shots after they were exposed to

“Summertime and the livin’ is easy...” George Gershwin wrote these lyrics for the 1935 opera “Porgy and Bess.” They seem fitting to many people, as summertime is seen as a time to kick back, relax and enjoy a slower pace. While summertime is a season to live easy, there are some inherent dangers to summer that can halt plans of fun in the sun. From skin cancer to insect bites, summertime can be dangerous for those who don’t play it safe. With a greater number of people out and about enjoying the warm weather, the risk for accidents and injuries increases. The National Safe Kids Campaign says statistics indicate children will be rushed to emergency rooms around the country nearly three million times this summer. Higher rates

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the N.C. Division of Public Health are reminding citizens that while touching and feeding young wildlife may be tempting, it can be harmful to both the animals and humans. Tampering with wildlife – even young wildlife — endangers people and harms the ecosystem. “Wild animals are not pets, and they are not meant to be raised and fed by humans,” said David Cobb, chief of the Commission’s Division of Wildlife Management. “Wild animals never totally lose their wild instincts, even if the animal seems tame. Those instincts can show up anytime and the results can be harmful to people and the animal.” Wildlife can transmit diseases, including rabies and

SAFETY,

FROM PAGE TEN news broadcasts stories of children who fell into backyard pools or adults swept out to sea by choppy waves. People should never take bodies of water for granted. Swimming only where there is a certified lifeguard can make water recreation safer. Individuals should follow the guidelines posted regarding swimming and avoid oceans when storms are brewing because of rip tides and undertows. Children should always be carefully monitored around water. Remember, pool floats and water wings

(swimmies) should not be used as a substitute for a life vest. • Wildlife dangers: Just as many people come out of hibernation when the weather warms, so do animals and insect life. Tick bites are common when the weather is warm. Experts say that the months of May, June and July are peak times for exposure to ticks, which may carry Lyme Disease or another dangerous parasite. Ticks are small and can be difficult to spot. People can do a tick check after coming in from outside, paying careful attention to the areas to which ticks tend to migrate — in ears, in and around the hair, under the arms, behind the

knees, around the waist, and between the legs. Mosquitoes, biting flies, bees, wasps, and other insects are in full force. Using an insect repellent can help keep them at bay and avoid bites. In addition to insects, animals like bats, squirrels, raccoons and bears are more active in the warm weather. During the time of dawn and dusk deer may be on the prowl for food before the heat of day. People can pay attention to wildlife when driving, hiking or bicycling to avoid altercations. Most individuals can enjoy the summer if they make safety a priority when planning recreational activities.
