Son of pro wrestler Ric Flair found dead

Friday, March 29th, 2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Authorities say the son of professional wrestler Ric Flair has been found dead in a North Carolina hotel room.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police says officers were called to a hotel on the city’s south side around 10:30 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found the body of 25-year-old Reid Fliehr, who also was a wrestler.

A statement from police says there are no signs of foul play, and that the cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office.

Flair’s agent released a statement Friday describing Reid as “an incredible son, brother, friend, and professional wrestler.”

Ric Flair’s real name is Richard Morgan Flair. The peroxide-blond wrestled for some 40 years and also was known as The Nature Boy.

The 64-year-old won many pro wrestling titles including in the WWE.

StarNews: Officials unsure about ballot date for New Hanover bond referendum

Friday, March 29th, 2013

By: Pressley Baird

A bond referendum to expand and renovate New Hanover County schools may take longer to appear before voters than originally thought.

When discussions began about the referendum in October, members of the New Hanover County Board of Education planned for it to go on the November 2013 ballot. School board members and county commissioners said that while no final decision has been made, they're leaning toward waiting at least a year before presenting the referendum to voters. But one thing that both groups feel is immediately necessary is a new school in the northern part of the county.

In January, the school board unanimously voted to ask the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners to approve putting a bond referendum to fund new and renovated schools on the November 2013 ballot. The final price tag would be determined by both the school board and the county commissioners – a decision that must come no later than April for the bond to appear on the November ballot.
