The dog who would be reindeer. Olive The Other Reindeer is one of 5 children’s Christmas stories depicted in 5 trees full of ornaments created by Pamlico HS art students. The trees are at the Pamlico Library thru tomorrow when a silent auction concludes. Bidding winners get the tree, ornaments and book the tree is based on.

As any cruising sailor will tell you, an anchor light is essential. One of the new Christmas lights on Broad Street.
New Christmas lights switched on Oriental's Broad Street last night. The idea for the lights (and the funding) came from Oriental's Tourism Board. Sailboats, snowflakes & anchors light up about town...
