WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The State Legislature and the Governor’s Office are going back and forth today on why Continental Tires decided to pick South Carolina to build a new plant.
Senator Phil Berger blames Governor Perdue and what he calls “pay-to-play politics,” refering to a story the AP did recently on people close to the governor who would have profited by the sale of land in Brunswick County.
This afternoon, the Governor’s Office released the chain of correspondence related to the pitching of the project.
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wounded Warrior ride to Wilmington ended early today after one of the riders was involved in an accident with a car.
A Cape Fear Community College spokesman said one of the riders was bumped during the ride to Wilmington. No one was seriously hurt, but the delay led organizers to pull the plug on the rest of the trip that was supposed to end at Cape Fear Community College’s downtown campus.
The annual ride is made up of disabled military veterans. This ride started this morning in Holly Ridge.
Many of the riders use adaptive bicycles that allow them to participate in spite of missing limbs or other severe injuries.
This annual event serves to raise awareness of the many thousands of our veterans that have been injured.
