RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The major entertainment at this year’s North Carolina State Fair has a reality-show flavor.

The fair opens Thursday at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh and continues through Oct. 25. Performing Saturday is Kellie Pickler, an Albemarle native who placed sixth during the fifth season of Fox’s “American Idol.”

Julianne Hough sings Oct. 21. She’s best known as a professional dancer on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” where she won the competition twice, once with Olympic gold medal-winning speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno and then again with three-time Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves.

And the next evening, Oct. 22, Chapel Hill’s Anoop Desai performs. He placed sixth on the most recent season of “American Idol.”

South Brunswick High students raise and release flounders

Students at South Brunswick High School said farewell to some friends Wednesday.
They have been raising 300 southern flounder since last spring, and Wednesday it was time to let them go.

It was part of the school’s aquaculture program. With the help of the North Carolina Future Farmers of America and the Department of Marine Fisheries, South Brunswick became the first high school in the state to raise and release this type of fish.

“Going to the fish farm, and helping with the fish back there, it helped me learn how to take care of them, and I learned how they’re going to survive in the wild,” said South Brunswick student Kayla Hux.

South Brunswick teacher Barry Bey said, “I think it’s a great conservation experience. They had to use a lot about what they learned in my class; water quality, and different ways to raise fish. I think it’ll make them more conservation-minded for the future. For these students who want to go into this field, it’s a great experience.”

Beaufort County schools now plan to do the same project in the Pamlico Sound.
