He was a friend of mine and my families, he had a big heart, but he had his problems of his own. He used to be our neighbor and he loved the kids. He would do anything for anyone. He truely will be missed. Prayers go out to
his family. Rest in peace Scotty.

I would really like to see Nags Head place additional lighting from the town line south to the new Food Lion. After coming out of well lighted Kill Devil Hills its like traveling through a dark tunnel.

While lighting won’t keep pedestrians from crossing in front of cars, it may give the drivers a better chance of seeing the pedestrians and reacting before impact.
