Power of Rural

Tom Butler takes great pride in the power of his pig poop. More specifically, the 77-year-old Lillington native and lifelong farmer takes pride in that poop’s potential. His covered lagoons are trapping methane gas, which in turn is powering his farm and will soon provide energy to its own grid of homes in Harnett County. Those giant green plastic tarps are also keeping the smells at bay — much to the appreciation of his neighbors in the rural, southwestern portion of the county — and plans are in the works to recycle the leftover sludge and produce nitrogen-based fertilizer.

GEN1

Roughly 30 percent of all entering freshmen on any given college campus are first-generation college students, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. That percentage goes up when you loosen the definition of “first generation” — some define it as a student whose parents didn’t obtain at least a four-year degree.

Fighting the Opioid Epidemic

More Americans died from a drug overdose last year than from traffic accidents, and three out of five of those deaths involved a highly addictive opioid. In 2014, nearly 2 million Americans said they abused prescription pain pills, and nearly 20,000 of them died from an overdose. Another 10,000-plus died from heroin — an opiate that’s often the next step for prescription drug abusers searching for a stronger, cheaper fix.

The Songwriter

Maybe you’re like Harrington was at first — you don’t immediately recognize the name John D. Loudermilk. But if you were been a fan of popular music at any time between the 1960s and the 1990s, you probably know more than a few of his songs.
