Preacher Billy Graham admitted to NC hospital

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) — A spokesman for the Rev. Billy Graham says the famous evangelist has been taken to a hospital near his
home in North Carolina for treatment of his lungs.

Spokesman A. Larry Ross says Graham was admitted Wednesday to Mission Hospital in Asheville with congestion, a cough and slight fever.

A pulmonologist at the hospital said in a news release that Graham is being tested for possible pneumonia. The release said Graham was alert, smiling and waving to staff.

The 93-year-old served as an adviser to presidents and toured the world for his famous crusades. He now spends much of his time at home near Asheville and occasionally meets with Christian leaders and old friends.

He was last hospitalized in May for five days with pneumonia.

Injured pelicans washing up on NC beaches again

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

JACKSONVILLE, NC (AP) — Officials say pelicans with injuries similar to those seen last winter are washing up on Onslow Beach and have been reported on another beach along the southeastern North Carolina coast.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reports that Toni O’Neil of Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary says three healthy looking pelicans were taken to the sanctuary after washing ashore at Onslow Beach with shattered wings. All three were euthanized.

Four more pelicans with similar injuries were brought to O’Neil last weekend to be euthanized.

A biologist said three pelicans with broken wings were found dead on North Topsail Beach within the last week. Grant said he found one pelican with a broken wing on Nov. 21 and two on Monday.

Last November, North Topsail Beach documented more than 60 pelican deaths.
