world war 2 u boat issues?[edit]

i have a 5 hour long movie about world war 2 in the outer banks. a lot of u-boats were in the area at the time there have been very famous incidents. i am surprised that that was not talked about in the history section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 200.6.151.248 (talk) 00:53, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Fishing?[edit]

Hey Korivak. Go interview some fishermen and edit this page to tell about them. There was a big to-do when the Ocracoke ice house was about to close (which would put them all out of business) and a hastily assembled fisherman's cooperative bought it. Haven't heard anything since then, and their website has not been updated. http://www.ocracokewatermen.org/ FrederickFolger (talk) 23:42, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

An Ocracoke/Canadian[edit]

I've lived on Ocracoke Island on and off over the last decade when not living in Ottawa, Canada, and moved down to live here full time to write as of January 2005.

Discussing "humans"[edit]

Perhaps I'm a bit sensitive to this, but in common parlance, "populations" usually implies humanity, unless there's a reason for saying otherwise.

For example, we might discuss a Panda population, but it would usually only be in the context of a paucity of Pandas (or conversely, a large population of a certain animal).

Inserting "human" in the discussion of population sounds awkward. And in the context of a racial/ethnic discussion, it seems obviously redundant.

In addition, the island that makes up the Bogue Banks (includes the town of Emerald Isle) is part of the Outer Banks and IS inhabited.-JB

The Bogue Banks are not part of the Outer Banks they are south of the Outer Banks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.164.110.118 (talk) 18:36, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

British Cemetery[edit]

It's doubtful the Coast Guard Station takes care of the cemetery: the Coast Guard Station closed and has been renovated into a learning center. 842U (talk) 21:05, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Coast Guard still maintains a presence on the island. They just don't have a station anymore. Coast Guard personnel live in civilian housing and the launch trailerable boats from National Park Service Property while not taking care of the cemetary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tugboat069 (talkcontribs) 23:44, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
