The Down East Journal (03/03/17)

Mar 6, 2017

This week on the Down East Journal, we revisit the soon to be built Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The project is top priority for many state and federal lawmakers and a point of contention for environmentalists.  More on a 100+ mile walk along the pipeline's route through eastern North Carolina from Robeson County to the Virginia Border.  Also, some people in eastern North Carolina are choosing stem cell therapy as an alternative to surgery to alleviate chronic pain.  We weigh the risk and benefits of the minimally invasive and experimental procedure.  And, backyard bee keeping is becoming a popular hobby.  We talk about the Craven County Extension Office's Beekeeping School for Beginners.
