Historic Wilmington Foundation releases annual list of threatened sites

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Historic Wilmington Foundation announced its seventh annual list of the most threatened historic places in the Cape Fear.

This year’s list includes the Rosenwald Schools in Pender County, the Tide Water Power and Light building in Wilmington and the Old Jail in Burgaw.

“Any historic building that’s eligible for the National Register of Historic Places helps define what that community is about,” said Dr. Jeffrey Crow of the NC Office of Archives. “It contributes to the character of a community.”

The purpose of the Historic Wilmington Foundation is to focus attention on threatened sites and to illustrate the benefits of historic preservation.

The foundation also released a watch list of historic places they will monitor during the coming year.

NC House panel backs next year’s budget changes

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — House budget-writers have recommended changes to the spending plan for North Carolina state government next year that ease school district funding reductions and give public employees and teachers a small bonus four years after their last pay increase.

The House Appropriations Committee recommended the $20.3 billion budget plan Tuesday after more than four hours of debate and votes on about 20 amendments. Debate on the House floor is expected Wednesday and Thursday.

The bill reduces by two-thirds the $500 million in state money that school districts would have been required to return next school year. There’s a $250 bonus for state employees and teachers. The measure also sets aside $50 million to respond to conflicts with federal agencies involving adult care home residents and services they receive.
