Wilmington man represents NC in Cosmo bachelor contest

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man is in the running for Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Bachelor of the Year contest. Micah Tootoo, 21, is North Carolina’s representative on the list in the issue that hits newsstands Tuesday.

You can also check out all the single guys online at http://www.cosmopolitan.com/bachelors-2011 and vote for Tootoo or your favorite from now until October 16. The top 10 bachelors with the most votes will be named semifinalists, and a panel of Cosmo editors will choose one of those lucky guys to be Bachelor of the Year and receive $10,000. The announcement will be made on October 18 when all the bachelors gather in New York City at Arena for the annual Cosmo Bachelor Party hosted by Editor-in-Chief Kate White.

Cosmo says in the November issue, the men describe themselves and reveal what they’re looking for in a girlfriend, including their top turn-ons and dating deal-breakers. The feature also includes e-mail addresses for all the guys, so readers have a chance to connect with them. Plus, this year readers can reach out to the bachelors via Twitter—all they have to do is tweet @CosmoOnline with why their favorite should date them in 140 characters or less.

According to his Facebook page, Tootoo is a Hoggard High grad, who now attends NC State. His Cosmo profile describes him as a student/surf instructor.

Jury: NC hospital negligent in child abuse case

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — A Cumberland County jury has awarded a boy and his father $25 million, ruling that a hospital was negligent when its employees didn’t notice the boy was a victim of child abuse.

But The Fayetteville Observer reported that Cape Fear Valley Health System will pay less than the jury’s award to 14-year-old Ajamu Gaines Jr., and his father. The two
sides reached a private settlement following the verdict Monday.

Testimony showed Ajamu was brought to the hospital in 2003 with old and new broken bones, and again three months later with a brain injury to the then 6-year-old.

An attorney says the hospital disagrees with the verdict.

Ajamu lives in Charleston, WV, with his father, who says the money will ensure lifelong care for his son.
