Sea-Comm Media has pulled the plug on a controversial rally scheduled to take place at Riverfest.

Sea-Comm President and General Manager Paul Knight said the company will no longer sponsor the “I Love America” rally at next month’s festival.

The rally was going to be hosted by conservative radio show host Curtis Wright, which sparked some protest from community members.

Knight said he did not want Riverfest directors to endure what he called “ridiculous action by a small group of unhappy people.”

NC doctor pulls out plastic piece lodged in lung

RALEIGH — Doctors say the coughing spells, fatigue and pneumonia spells that plagued a North Carolina man for over a year were likely caused by a piece of a plastic he sucked into his lung by gulping his soda.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that doctors at Duke University Medical Center pulled an inch-long piece of a plastic eating utensil from John Manley’s left lung. The
50-year-old Wilmington home remodeler guessed he inhaled it while gulping a drink from a fast-food restaurant.

Dr. Momen Wahidi says foreign objects in the lungs are much more common in children, but he’s extracted false teeth, nails, and a peanut from adults. He says adults holding nails or pins in their mouth may suck them into airways and not realize it.
