Photographer gets close-up look at ‘Iron Man 3’ stunt shoot

Friday, July 27th, 2012

OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — We’re getting a better look at “Iron Man 3” shooting this week in Oak Island.

Tanya Hume sent us these photos of her up-close and personal look right in her own backyard.

Actors and stunt men were on the beach and in the sky as jet skis were in the water for assistance. They jumped out of a small plane, landing on the sand, and gave by-standers quite the show.

A man in what looked like an Iron Man costume was also on the beach for the shoot.

$1 million Powerball prize yet to be claimed

Friday, July 27th, 2012

JACKSONVILLE, NC (AP) — Someone bought a Powerball ticket in North Carolina worth $1 million but hasn’t yet claimed their winnings.

The N.C. Education Lottery wants that person to know the time to collect is running out.

Lottery officials say the ticket was purchased at a WilcoHess in Jacksonville. The winner matched all five white balls in the Feb. 4 drawing, but the ticket holder has until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2 to claim their winnings at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.

To bring attention to the deadline, the lottery placed a countdown clock in the store’s window on Thursday.

Draw game tickets expire when they go unclaimed for 180 days after a drawing. By law, half of the unclaimed money goes toward prizes awarded to future winners. The other half would benefit education.
