Coast Guard warns of shallow water in NC inlet

Friday, October 28th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — The Coast Guard is warning boaters of shallow water in an inlet southwest of Wilmington.

The Coast Guard says it has removed navigation buoys at Lockwoods Folly Inlet between Holden Beach and Oak Island because of shallow water. The agency says Hurricane Irene complicated the shallow water problem.

Channel depths are less than three feet in many parts of the waterway, below standards for safe navigation.

The Coast Guard is advising boaters on marine radio to find alternative channels to reach the Atlantic Ocean.

The navigational buoys will be returned when water levels improve.

Judge may take up motion in Edwards sex tape case

Friday, October 28th, 2011

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — A federal judge in Greensboro may make a decision involving a contempt of court accusation in the case involving a purported sex tape depicting John Edwards.

U.S. District Court Judge Catherine C. Eagles could decide Friday whether to allow lawyers in that case to subpoena federal prosecutors in the separate criminal case involving Edwards.

Lawyers for Rielle Hunter want the subpoenas to stand as part of their effort to show that former Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young, his wife and their lawyers improperly shared information in the civil case with federal prosecutors.

Hunter, who had an affair with Edwards during his unsuccessful White House run, is suing the Youngs for the return of personal property, purportedly including the sex tape.

A hearing on the contempt charge is scheduled for November.
