Outer Banks Ready For Thanksgiving

It was a tough week recently for the Outer Banks when it came to a Nor' easter punishing main roads.

Many towns and cities are getting ready for folks to come enjoy a Thanksgiving getaway.

Weather permitting all ferry schedules are expected to be ready for service for Swan Quarter, Cedar Island and Hatteras.

Highway 12 which was almost entirely crippled over a week ago is now open to two lanes of traffic in the Rodanthe and the Mirlo Beach area.

Many Outer Banks towns see Thanksgiving week as the last economic boom of the season before the true off season begins.

    Subject: bring back the penny tax!!! People on the outer Banks have never done anything to save the beaches- after the nor'easter now is the time to start preaching again BRING BACK THE ONE PENNEY TAX!! It was only a penny more per dollar spent-when you went out to eat-and on prepared foods only—it will bring in more that 5 Million Dollars per year Will be enough money to refurbish the beaches from Kitty Hawk to Nags Head every 5 years Your real-estate taxes and other taxes will go up --if we lose the oceanfront homes These homes are the first to rent- and bring in the most taxes— tourist pay 12.75% renters tax every week-most of these homes bring in 4 times more money then the average owner occupied dwelling-and no one lives in them full time and OCEANFRONT HOMES ARE A (O) Tax burden--- if you lose the beaches and these homes--YOUR TAXES WILL GO UP--- BUTCH STONE NAGS HEAD
