The sign up for the Medicare Prescription Drug plan began Tuesday. Folks in Pamlico County headed to their local Senior Services Center in Alliance to sign up. But no matter where you live, you can sign up at many local pharmacies. Officials say people will have until May 15 to get on board without penalty. North Carolina has 16 plans to pick from versus 40 nationally, which officials say could make it easier for seniors when deciding what to do.
