FREMONT, N.C. (AP) - The touring exhibit of artifacts from Blackbeard's pirate ship is coming to the Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site in Fremont. The exhibit of artifacts from the Queen Anne's Revenge opens today and continues through May 24. It includes items such as gold dust, glass beads and a cannon ball.

SWANSBORO, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina fisheries officials have canceled the spring red drum fishing season because so many of the species were caught during the fall. That means commercial fisherman will go nearly a year without a red drum season.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Kay Hagan considers herself a middle-of-the-road U.S. senator who fights for the middle class and responds effectively to constituent requests. That may sound like a trite political statement, but the North Carolina Democrat believes that's what voters wanted when they elected her in 2008 and prefer again this year as they decide whether she gets a second term.

MIAMI (AP) - Even as the two-time defending NBA champions, the Miami Heat say they aren't overlooking any team heading into the playoffs. The Charlotte Bobcats haven't beaten the Heat a single time since LeBron James changed addresses. Charlotte visits Miami in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference matchup tomorrow.
