CARY — State emergency management professionals are training citizen volunteers to help their families and neighbors when a disaster strikes and first responders haven’t arrived or can’t get to the scene.

The North Carolina Division of Emergency Management plans to teach the volunteers Thursday afternoon during a mock tornado and fire. The training is part of a three-day session that ends Friday at the Cary Fire Department’s training building.

The program aims to teach citizens to be community leaders in the event of a disaster. Coursework includes fire safety, search and rescue, damage assessment and emergency medicine.

RALEIGH — A Senate panel has quietly approved separate bills telling North Carolina public schools to change how they teach sex education and to adopt detailed anti-bullying policies.

The Senate Mental Health and Youth Services Committee recommended the legislation Wednesday to the full Senate.

The sex education bill passed the House just two weeks ago. It would require schools to offer children in grades seven though nine one curriculum focused on abstinence until marriage and another with more about contraception. Parents would choose either one for their child or none at all.

The anti-bullying bill is opposed by conservative Christians who argue it would advance special protections for gay people.

Times may be tough on Market Street, but one downtown Wilmington store is back in business.

A couple of weeks ago NewsChannel 3 reported Cape Fear Books and Supply on Front Street shut down, leaving Cape Fear Community College students with the on-campus store as their only option for buying textbooks.

A Wilmington couple bought the off-campus store and reopened it Wednesday, just in time for CFCC students to sell their books back as the semester comes to a close.
