Just curious, how come "High Pt" is accepted for Wilmington? I typed in High Pt because I'm lazy and ended up getting Wilmington.

They are switched, but the dot for where Kannapolis is isn't in the correct spot. Should be just north of Concord.

I grew up in NC and was only surprised by Apex, which I had never heard of. Turns out, Apex had a population of less than 5,000 in 1990 and about 20,000 in 2000.

I had a friend who was raped and murdered while attending college in Asheville in the spring of 1973 and the killer was never caught. For some reason I could not remember the name of the town. After seeing the answer I did a google search for my friend and discovered an article someone had written recently in remembrance. It was comforting to me to read the tributes written in reply and to know that others haven't forgotten her either. Funny how taking a simple trivia quiz can lead to a moment of comfort to soothe sad memories. Thanks, QM, for that unexpected moment.
