    The 1st article states "The bacteria only affects the water within 200 feet of the sign.".....like there's an imaginary barrier that prevents it from spreading. Now just a day or two later "Bacteria levels at the Radio Island Public Beach access point in Morehead City are back below acceptable levels"....I suppose they just wave a magic wand over the area and it's all gone now.

    Guess what germaphones: bacteria are everywhere. In you, on you, and all around you. There is no escaping them. They have always been here and always will be.
