Friday, September 28th, 2012

SOUTHPORT, NC (AP) — Supporters of the military’s Wounded Warriors group are organizing a welcome home parade along the North Carolina coast.

Kris Tourtellotte of Operation Welcome Home says Friday’s event will include about 30 veterans who will ride specially adapted bikes.

The route follows about 38 miles from Southport to the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Calabash.

Supporters are encouraged to come out and welcome the veterans by 3:30 p.m. and to bring welcome signs.

Bank of America to pay $2.43B in settlement

Friday, September 28th, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — Bank of America says it will pay $2.43 billion to settle a class-action lawsuit related to its acquisition of Merrill Lynch.

The lawsuit from 2009 was on behalf of investors that bought or held Bank of America stock when the company announced its plans to buy Merrill Lynch. Among the plaintiffs allegations was that Bank of America and some of its officers made false or misleading statements about both companies’ financial health.

Bank of America denies the allegations and says it agreed to the settlement to get rid of the uncertainties, burden and costs related to the lawsuit. It has also agreed to adopt create several corporate governance policies.

Shares of Bank of America Corp. fell 5 cents to $8.92 in premarket trading Friday.
