14 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — CAPE FEAR NC | VOLUME 13—ISSUE 1 CAPE FEAR LIVING YOUR ADVOCATE It was a challenge to interest my son in school until he enrolled in the Project Lead The Way class. Thankfully we have business leaders that understand the importance of bridging education gaps by building stick bridges. " " Giving students the opportunity to apply what they learn in math and science classes to hands-on projects can open their minds and attention spans. When the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce learned about Project Lead the Way, it set out to bring the program to New Hanover County by funding "Gateway To Technology" at Trask Middle School. Students were introduced to engineering, robotics, and computer modeling. The result has been a new crop of budding engineers and scientists. Education issues have always been a mainstay of the Wilmington Chamber's mission. We've been your advocate for 164 years. What's "Biting" on Cape Fear Piers ("pier pressure" that no one really minds) • Kure Beach Fishing Pier is open April 1 through November 30, and costs $8 per person with a one rod limit. Shark and King fishing is allowed at certain times and for a fee. For information contact 910-458- 5524, or visit its website at • Carolina Beach Fishing Pier is where bluefish bite with the occasional chopper blue thrown in and some "whitings" when you can hook one. The pier is open 24-hours-a-day and pricing for fishing varies. For more information, call 910-458- 5518, or visit the pier's Facebook page. • Johnnie Mercer's Fishing Pier in Wrightsville Beach is one of the most active and action packed piers in the Cape Fear region.

You can get all your supplies for fishin' and beachin' at the pier and then throw in a reel for King mackerel, flounder and other fish. The on-site restaurant, SeaView Pier Restaurant, will even cook your catch if you "catch 'em and clean 'em for a price you will like." For non-fish lovers, the restaurant is said to have the best hotdogs and cheeseburgers around. []
