We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Larry Pittman of Beaufort County, who passed away on May 8, 2023.  Mr. Pittman was a land surveyor for over 50 years until he was 83 years of age.  He could tell you many stories about many properties all over Carteret County. A visitation will be held on Friday, May 12th, from 6-8pm at Bridgeway Church of Beaufort.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at Bridgeway Church of Beaufort also. Interment will follow the service at Carteret Memorial Gardens in Beaufort.  Click Here to Read the Full Obituary


The Certified Federal Surveyor (CFedS) program is an intensive course designed to equip licensed surveyors with an unsurpassed Public Land Survey System (PLSS) knowledge base. Created in 2005 by the Bureau of Land Management, CFedS has become the hallmark program for surveyors wishing to provide cadastral services on federal trust lands while deepening their understanding of working within the PLSS. The non-PLSS surveyor can also benefit from the program by becoming more well-rounded in the many intricacies of our profession. Click Here to Continue Reading
