It’s been called one of the top two springtime events in Wilmington, and it’s happening this weekend.

The 30th annual Coastal Living Show features everything from home improvements to decorating.

For those concerned about the environment, ‘going green in the courtyard’ is something new you’ll see this year.

The Coastal Living Show is Saturday and Sunday at CFCC’s Schwartz Center. Tickets are $5 for adults and children under 12 are free.

Proceeds benefit charities supported by the Wilmington Woman’s Club.

NC nursing home shooting suspect getting treatment

CARTHAGE, N.C. — A defense attorney says the man charged with killing eight people in a shooting rampage at a North Carolina nursing home still is being treated at a state prison hospital.

Attorney Frank Wells said Monday that 45-year-old Robert Kenneth Stewart “is receiving some treatment at Central Prison hospital.” Stewart was shot in the chest by Carthage police Officer Justin Garner, ending the March 29 assault at Pinelake Health and Rehab Center.

Wells said his client had a hearing scheduled Monday in Moore County Superior Court on the murder charges, but that it won’t be held because a county grand jury is meeting. Wells says he expects Stewart will be indicted by the grand jury, which would supersede the murder warrants.
