Cameron family offers land for baseball stadium; But says don’t use tax money to build it

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (STARNEWSONLINE.COM) — The Cameron family, who owns large tracts of property in New Hanover County, has offered to donate land to the city of Wilmington for a proposed baseball stadium.

But the family is against taxpayer money being used for the facility.

Smith Creek Land, LLC, the real estate company for the Cameron property, sent a letter to the city offering up to 35 acres off Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway for a proposed stadium. The city is considering a proposed $35 million stadium that would bring an Atlanta Braves minor league team, operated by Mandalay Baseball, to the Port City.

Jurors in John Edwards case reach verdict

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Jurors have reached a unanimous verdict on one of six counts in John Edwards’ campaign corruption trial. That verdict has not been read, and the judge has ordered the jury back to continue deliberations.

Edwards’ defense seeks mistrial on most counts. The judge is weighing options with the jury deadlocked.

The jurors have been deliberating for about nine days.

Edwards is accused of masterminding a plan to use money from wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008. Defense attorneys say Edwards did not knowingly break campaign finance laws. They also say the payments to hide his mistress Rielle Hunter were gifts, not campaign contributions.

Edwards is charged with six criminal counts. They include conspiracy to violate the Federal Election Campaign Act, accepting contributions that exceeded limits and causing his campaign to file a false financial disclosure report.

He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
