The Down East Journal (07/24/15)

DOWN_EAST_JOURNAL_LOGO.JPG

A new community shelter recently opened in Greenville, providing safe housing for more than 60 residents.  This week on the Down East Journal, we speak with Executive Director Bob Williams about the high-tech 2.2 million dollar facility and their mission to help the less fortunate in Pitt County.  Also, we hear an update on the construction of the high rise bridge from Morehead City to Beaufort.  And, a native of Lenoir County whose efforts in multiple American wars, including as a major figure in the state during the Civil War, have been lost to history has his story told by a fellow native of the region.  The Down East Journal, Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations.  And Saturday at noon on New and Ideas.
