All board for a trip through railroad history

Back in its heyday, nothing said, “Freedom!’” like riding the rails. Beginning in 1833 and carrying forward to today, rail traffic opened up the far reaches of North Carolina unlike dirt trails, canals and plank roads ever could.

The rails brought industrial and commercial goods from Wilmington inland all the way up into the Blue Ridge Mountains. On the way back, trains picked up textiles, furniture, lumber, ores and more for a growing country.

At one time, North Carolina could boast over 5,500 miles of railway. Today, that has dwindled to just over 3,000 miles. Trains are still vital and an important part of the state economy. But a lot of former rail beds have been converted to walking trails and greenways,.

Many of the old rail stations have gone, too. Some were simple affairs – mainly batten board structures that provided a stopping point to pick up water and

Disneyland Resort Reopening Guidelines Back To Drawing Board

ANAHEIM, CA — After much waiting and high anticipation, on Friday California state officials fell short of announcing new guidelines for mass gatherings, including at theme parks, concerts and sporting events.

Officials from the state sought input on a “first draft of the reopening directive” designed to stay in line with the state’s Blueprint For A Safer Economy, according to a USA Today report. However, theme park officials balked at the restrictions that say until the county moves up to the tier of yellow — which could take months — few if any activities would be allowed at area theme parks.

“Given the size and operational complexities of these unique sectors, we are seeking additional input from health, workforce, and business stakeholders to finalize this important framework — all leading with science and safety,” Dr. Mark Ghaly, California’s Health and Human Services secretary, said in a statement.

Board denies controversial plan to put luxury ‘ecotourism’ resort on SC barrier island | Real Estate

After hearing calls from citizens to reject a proposed resort on an uninhabited Lowcountry barrier island, a Beaufort County zoning board voted unanimously Thursday night to deny the request.

The luxury development was proposed as an ecotourism use on Bay Point Island, which is considered an important habitat for shorebirds and sea turtles. Location was a major consideration in the zoning board’s rejection. 

“This is a great idea,” vice chairman Kevin Mack said just before a vote was taken. “But I just don’t think it’s compatible to the surrounding area. I think it’s going to be more harm to the environment.”

Mack also expressed concerns that critical conversations between the developers and the St. Helena Island community were lacking, describing himself as a “product of St. Helena Island” and of the Gullah-Geechee Nation.

“I’m very sensitive to what the people within the community have to say about what’s coming into

Bay Point Island SC resort: Beaufort County board rejects plans

A Beaufort County zoning board rejected plans to build a resort on Bay Point Island, saying the project wasn’t compatible with the nearby area and didn’t meet development requirements for a special permit.

The vote Thursday night at Burton Wells Recreation Center was among the county’s first in-person meetings since the COVOD-19 pandemic closed government offices and moved public meetings online. The Bay Point decision was pushed back multiple times as county community development director Eric Greenway vowed to allow the public to comment in person.

And speakers at the meeting overwhelmingly asked the board to reject the permit, citing environmental concerns, the threat of climate change and inconsistency with the intent of ecotourism.

After a closed-door meeting in executive session to receive legal advice following public comments and presentations from developers and county staff, the board unanimously voted against granting a permit to allow the project as a special
