In honor of the last day of filming on the River court.

It’s been host to authors, NBA players, local legends, and fashion designers. Notable musicians have played here. Both concerts and games of force. And on gentle summer nights, as the staccato rhythms of worn leather on fading asphalt mixes with the white noise of the distant nightlife across the Cape Fear, kids have grown up here. I should know, I was one of them. Now development threatens to erase this place. Commerce is commerce. That’s not really the point is it? The truth is, a town’s identity is made up of places like this one. And once they’re gone, they’re gone. Some people that care about this court have uncovered a nest nearby that could be the key to stopping the bulldozers you see behind me. But even so, do we have to find a technicality to preserve our town’s history? A lot of lost kids found their way to something better in this park. In a confusing world, at a confusing time in their lives, they found something that made sense here. And they became better people because of it. Surely that is worth preserving.” -Mouth McFadden on The River Court
