north carolina: Will "Top Contributors" REPLACE the Leaderboard? What about Community? - 06/19/14 08:15 AM

 
Changes are evident whether we agree or not.  Top Contributors are all over the internet.    
 
It's a shame to see quantity win in this case though.
 
 Top notch doesn't always equal to Top Contributor, especially in the State of North Carolina.  
 
It's extremely hard to see someone who writes poorly is higher on the "Board" than Debe Maxwell and Craig Rutman ....

north carolina: Sunset Beach, North Carolina is a Paradise that is a well kept secret.. - 03/24/12 02:14 PM
Sunset Beach, North Carolina is a Paradise that is a well kept secret Having lived here for almost nine years I have found Sunset Beach, North Carolina to be a Paradise that is a well kept secret.
Locals want to keep the Sunset Beach area to themselves and most were not happy when the last authentic pontoon swing bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway was replaced by a modern high rise bridge.


The weather is a perfect reason to visit with temperatures rarely below freezing or above the 90's. The average temperature in the winter months is in … (14 comments)
