"When I was a little girl, back in the 1940s, I and my older brother Billy or my older sister Jane would go down to the pier to catch crabs on a summer day. We’d tie an old chicken neck weighted with an oyster shell to a length of string, and hold one end, letting the other touch the muddy creek bottom. When we felt a gentle tug, we’d ever so carefully and slowly lift the chicken neck up, until a big blue-green crab was revealed hanging onto the bait. Then we’d scoop it up with a net and dump the crab into a bucket filled with many other scrabbling crabs," Margaret Hummel wrote of her memories growing up along Hewletts Creek. Her experience highlights how local waterways can inspire us all.

When it rains, litter washes into our waterways. Animals can mistake litter for food, get entangled or feed it to their young. Cigarette butts leave harmful chemicals in our waterways. The average piece of plastic takes 450 years to degrade.

Do you part and help heal our waterways.
💧 Reuse plastic bags.
💧 Recycle plastic, paper, glass, metal & electronics.
💧 Be a good example. Don’t litter.

Necessary structural repairs are underway on the one-way Harry Forden 6th Street bridge, which crosses the old path of the CSX rail line as it enters Wilmington on the Northside, between Campbell and Hanover Streets. The rehabilitation to this historic structure involves sandblasting and repainting the truss, replacing the wooden decking for pedestrians, and structural repairs to the steel and concrete platform. When complete in February, the bridge will retain its iconic look, as depicted in the tv show “One Tree Hill.”

On October 2, 1961, The Battleship North Carolina came to Wilmington. At the time of her commissioning on April 9, 1941, she was considered the world’s greatest sea weapon. #FlashbackFriday

On October 2, 1961, The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA came to Wilmington. The mighty ship opened to the public just a couple of weeks later.

At the time of her commissioning on April 9, 1941, she was considered the world’s greatest sea weapon. During World War II, NORTH CAROLINA participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific area of operations and earned 15 battle stars.

The battleship survived many close calls and near misses with one hit when a Japanese torpedo slammed into the Battleship’s hull on 15 September 1942. A quick response on the part of the crew allowed the mighty ship to keep up with the fleet. By war’s end, the battleship lost only ten men in action and had 67 wounded.

After serving as a training vessel for midshipmen, NORTH CAROLINA was decommissioned in 1947.

In 1958 the announcement of her impending scrapping led to a statewide campaign by citizens of North Carolina to save the ship and bring her back to her home state. The campaign included a special effort among North Carolina’s school children, and of the 1.1 million children in school at the time, 700,000 gave at least a dime. The Battleship remains there today, standing sentinel in the Cape Fear River, one of 27 State Historic Sites.
