Parking space becomes park to raise green space awareness

Friday, September 21st, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A downtown parking space was turned into a park of its own today.

Park(ing) Day is an annual event that raises awareness the need for green space in cities.

Wilmington Downtown Inc. and UNCW’s Masters of Public Administration program paid for and decorated a parking spot on Front Street complete with plants and places to sit.

“We’re an urban environment,” volunteer Mike Lardieri said. “People love green space. Most great cities have them. New Orleans, New York, Charleston, Savannah, they all have green space, and we have a little bit of great real estate left, and we should turn it into a park.”

Organizers say Park(ing) Day challenges people to rethink the way streets are used and reinforces the need for changes to urban infrastructure.

NC firefighter charged with setting 6 fires

Friday, September 21st, 2012

LUMBERTON, NC (AP) — A Robeson County firefighter has been arrested and charged with setting six fires over a two-year period.

Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Duckworth says 18-year-old Austin Seth Hunt of Rowland is charged with six counts of setting fires to woodlands and grasslands.

Duckworth says the fires happened from September 2010 to earlier this month.

He says two of the fires happened while Hunt was a member of the Rowland Fire Department. Hunt has since been with the Raynham-McDonald Fire Department.

Duckworth says Hunt reported some of the fires himself.

It was not clear if Hunt has a lawyer.
