Thursday, October 25th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Garden owners on next year’s Azalea Garden Tour are tending to some special flowers tonight.

The Cape Fear Garden Club continued its annual tradition of accepting Encore Azaleas today at Airlie Gardens. It then handed them out to the 2013 Azalea Garden Tour owners.

As everyone sorted through the plants, there was only one thing on their minds: planting them of course.

“I wish I coulda got one of every one of them, but we got ten, and I’m going to be putting them out today,” Mike Caulder said.

Caulder and the other tour participants each got ten Encore Azalea plants to feature in their gardens.

The Azalea Garden Tour runs April 12-14 during the 2013 North Carolina Azalea Festival.

Hearing set for US general charged with sex crimes

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) — Fort Bragg officials will hold a preliminary hearing to determine if there’s enough evidence for an Army general charged with sex crimes to face trial.

The home of the 82nd Airborne Division announced Thursday it will hold the Article 32 hearing for Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair on Nov. 5.

Sinclair was deputy commander in charge of logistics and support for the division’s troops in Afghanistan until he was sent home in May because of the allegations.

Two US defense officials last month told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity that Sinclair has been charged with forcible sodomy, multiple counts of adultery and having inappropriate relationships with several female subordinates.

Sinclair has served five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
