A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
Many towns have old abandoned buildings they'd like to breathe new life into. And that's exactly what's happening in Washington. The old Dr. Pepper plant building along Bridge Street will be turned into a residential, business, and parking complex. The Beaufort County Committee of 100 made that announcement Wednesday, while also detailing plans for a new boat company to set up shop at the industrial park bringing more than a hundred jobs. Information on jobs at either location can be found at the North Carolina Employment Security Commission.
