Greenberg is an idiot

Jeff Greenberg is a travel editor for the No Brain Corporation, better known as NBC. Recent comments made by the the No Brain Corporation editor pertaining to New Bern NC help prove journalism is dead in America. His comments make it clear he has never visited this area and like most of the drive by media today, he gets his data second hand from the Internet.

I have lived in New Bern my entire life and have swam, fished, and boated on the Trent and Neuse Rivers since I was a kid. I live on the Trent River and during the warm months I spend several days a week on the water. This past summer the rivers were the cleanest I have ever seen them. We saw species of fish in the New Bern area that I have never seen before. Pods of dolphin were common all the way to Fairfield Harbor and shrimp were caught in Wilson Creek which is 5 miles up the Trent River. Hardly the cesspools that Greenberg would make them out to be.

I suggest before the No Brain Corporation, NBC, trash a beautiful city such as New Bern they actually visit it. Has anyone at this dying media outlet ever read a real report about this area which is consistently rated one of the top retirement and travel destinations in the country.

Fairfield Harbour Golf Courses

Who is that sweet swinger in the picture? Why me, of course. I have been playing golf since I was 6 years old and have played the courses in Fairfield Harbour many times. As many of you may know both courses have recently closed in FFH and the FFH POA and others are trying to figure out a way to purchase it from Mid-South Golf. Lets hope they can work out an agreement.
But regardless whether they do or not FFH is a great place to live with or without golf. There are many other things to do in FFH including boating, sailing, swimming, tennis, walking, biking, and an large assortment of clubs and organizations.
So, if you are considering living in FFH I would not let the closure of the golf course stop you. There are many other things to do there. Just ask some of the residents.
