For this to be his adopted home, Nicholas Sparks really should be given some kind of medal or recognition from the State for all of the money he has directly and indirectly pumped into the economy. I'd be willing to bet there is a direct corellation between his books and the rise in tourism on the NC coast over the last decade. Let alone movies like this that get filmed in the state and all of the money he pumps into New Bern and the work he does with his charities.
