Utilities back on at Wilmington operations center

Friday, February 10th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Power, phone and e-mail service has been restored earlier than expected at the City of Wilmington’s River Road Operations Center.

Yesterday a crane accidentally knocked over a utility line that severed electrical and fiber optic lines to the center. It included customer phone lines for the city’s Solid Waste, Streets and Stormwater services.

Work to restore connections to the city’s traffic signal system are underway and expected to be restored by the end of the day. These repairs do not affect operations of traffic lights throughout the city, which are operating as normal.

The city initially did not think power, phone and e-mail would be back until Monday.

Sen. Stevens of Cary won’t seek re-election

Friday, February 10th, 2012

CARY, NC (AP) – One of the chief-budget writers in the North Carolina Senate will not seek re-election, saying it’s time to move to another chapter in his life.

Republican Sen. Richard Stevens of Cary announced his decision Friday.

The former Wake County manager is in his fifth term in the Legislature and was one of the few Republicans to have Senate leadership jobs when the chamber was under Democratic rule. The 63-year-old Stevens received one of the top chairman’s positions on the Senate Appropriations Committee when the GOP took the majority after the 2010 elections.

Stevens said some of his fondest memories in elected office are when lawmakers from both parties worked together to move North Carolina forward.

His decision comes just before the candidate filing period begins at noon Monday.
