Cape Hatteras seashore superintendent retiring


MANTEO, N.C. (AP) - The Cape Hatteras National Seashore superintendent who was in charge when the divisive beach access rules were written is retiring at the end of July.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported ( that Superintendent Mike Murray told his staff in an email that he's retiring. His job includes overseeing the seashore, the Wright Brothers National Monument and the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site.

He has worked with the park service for 34 years, including more than six at Cape Hatteras. He came to the Outer Banks from the Cape Cod National Seashore in Massachusetts in December 2005.

A plan to balance recreation with the preservation of protected species went into effect in February on the Hatteras seashore.
