Navy's proposed expansion of bombing range threatens outdoorsmen,
by Fred Bonner Garner News November 3, 2009It seems like the U.S. Government never stops trying to take over more land in North Carolina for one reason or another. If it's not land (as in dry land) it's our air space or our waters.
...Wooster's friend, Owen, took his advice and fished the shoreline that was recommended and had fantastic luck catching red drum and a few specks in that location. Wooster told his friend that he'd best remember his good fishing there because it looked like the U.S. Navy was about to "take" that water and incorporate it into the BT-11 (Bombing Target) 11 restricted area. In so doing both sport and commercial fishermen would be completely banned from entering the area. Also, hunters, bird watchers and anyone not involved in practicing for warfare would be banned from using this section of N.C. public waterways.
Wooster and other concerned Tar Heels have formed a new group called "CEASE-FIRE" (Citizens Earnestly Against Serious Expansion From Increasing Range Encroachment).
