Students at West Brunswick High gathered Monday to remember their classmate who lost his life in a fatal car crash.

Nearly 1,000 students filled the halls of First Baptist Church for senior Jacob Moseley’s funeral.

Moseley was in a car with four other West Brunswick students early Friday morning when the driver lost control and crashed into a tree on Royal Oaks Road in Shallotte.

“He will be very missed by his classmates, I know that when we get to class on Monday afternoon, it’s going to be a challenge to have everyone in class without Jake in his seat,” West Brunswick High School teacher Stephanie Beach said on Friday.

When students returned to school, counselors were there if they needed someone to talk to.

There will be a memorial service for Jacob at 6:30 this Thursday at the First Baptist Church in Shallotte.

Study sees NC horse industry boosting rural areas

RALEIGH — North Carolina’s advocate for rural economies has some ideas about how the state’s horse industry can help business down on the farm.

The Rural Economic Development Center offers recommendations on Monday on how taxpayer dollars can boost a business now valued at about $2 billion.

The industry includes horse owners, farms, training facilities, veterinary practices, trailer and building suppliers, feed suppliers and other related operations.

The center’s study is the first to estimate the equine industry’s economic role in North Carolina. A 2005 economic study by the American Horse Council ranked North Carolina the country’s eighth-largest state in the number of horses.

Legislation is already in the works to create a state commission for promoting and expanding the horse industry.
