State Takes Over Nearly 40 Acres In Carteret County

It's a deal the state just can't refuse according to Raleigh's News and Observer. North Carolina just took control of nearly 40 acres of land in Carteret County with all that debt attached to it. The paper reports the land will be used to showcase the state's maritime and coastal history. The liens have been issued by outfits that claim they're owed money by the Friends of the Museum, which has already been accused by others that they have not been paid for work associated with the Tall Ships Festival held this summer.
