Somehow our blog site host, WordPress, created coding problems that changed the look of the site, changing the color and position of the navigation tab box, and dropping the date boxes on posts, among other distasteful and inconvenient changes. We are working on getting the site restored to its original look as soon as possible.

12/15/12: The site is now restored to a “plain vanilla wrapper,” and we will be getting it back to it’s theme look as soon as we can, but we’ll probably use a different theme than the one we originally used–that old theme may have been responsible for the problems–so the site will have a slightly different look ultimately.


We learned of the death today of George Magellan Jarvis, Jr., 83, of Lowland. We offer our prayers and condolences to the family. A graveside service is scheduled for 2 p.m., Dec. 15, at Wardens Grove Free Will Baptist Church, the Revs. Earl Sadler, Jr., John Carawan and John Hill officiating, with military honors by the Pamlico County VFW Honor Guard. The family will receive friends following the service, and they have asked that, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to Hospice of Pamlico County, PO Box 959, Bayboro, NC 28515; Hospice of Carteret County, PO Drawer 1619, Morehead City, NC 28557; or Voice of Freedom, 234 Snow Hill St., Ayden, NC 28513, or PO Box 30310, Greenville, NC 27833.
