Titan site in Castle Hayne wins Energy Star award

Friday, January 13th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — As opponents continue to fight a proposed cement plant in Castle Hayne because of environmental impacts, the plant’s parent company has won an environmental award.

Titan America’s Roanoke Cement Company says four of its distribution terminals have achieved the the US EPA’s Energy Star Challenge for Industry. It recognizes plants that demonstrate a commitment to the environment by achieving a 10-percent reduction in energy intensity within five or fewer years.

The facilities that got the award include the terminal in Castle Hayne. It’s the same site for the proposed Carolinas Cement plant. The terminal also received the SHARP award by the NC Department of Labor in September.

Judge: John Edwards has life-threatening condition

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — A federal judge says she has two letters from a cardiologist saying ex-presidential candidate John Edwards has a life-threatening condition that will require surgery in February.

The letters were revealed during a hearing Friday to consider whether the ex-North Carolina Senator would go on trial later this month for alleged campaign finance violations.

Attorneys for Edwards were seeking a 60-day delay to allow time for Edwards to recover. The judge delayed the trial to March 26.

Edwards was in court at the judge’s request, although doctors advised him to avoid travel and all court proceedings.

Police find buried body while investigating missing person

Friday, January 13th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The search for information in a missing person case led police to find a body buried at a house in downtown Wilmington.

WPD spokesman Kevin Smith says police received a missing person report Wednesday. While following up on that report this morning, they found a body buried at a home on 4th and Cowan Streets on the north end of downtown. Smith says investigators are now working to identify the body. He said police are not yet releasing the name of the missing person.

Smith also said two people were arrested at the home last night, but their charges were not related to the missing body.

WWAY has a crew at the scene. We will have updates on-air and online as information becomes available.

Perdue: MLK wouldn’t like voter ID, education cuts

Friday, January 13th, 2012

By GARY D. ROBERTSON

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Gov. Bev Perdue says the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would be troubled by efforts in North Carolina to require photo identification to vote and by education spending reductions.

Perdue made the pointed comments Friday at the annual state employees’ observance of the King holiday at a church next door to her old Capitol office in downtown Raleigh.

While the Democratic governor said later her words were directed to the entire state, it’s Republicans whom she’s criticized in recent months for sending her a voter ID bill and a budget that cut state public school spending by $459 million. She vetoed both bills, and the Legislature overrode the budget veto.

Several hundred people attended the program. The featured speaker was James Joseph, a former US ambassador to South Africa.
